Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze landed a commitment on Thursday. JUCO defensive tackle Larrell Murchison reportedly has pledged to play for the Rebels.
According to a report from 247Sports’ David Johnson, the big man from Louisburg College in North Carolina decided he wants to play in Oxford less than 24 hours after the Rebels extended him an offer.
Per the report, the commitment was directly connected to the hiring of new defensive line coach Tray Scott, who had a strong relationship with Murchison from his time at North Carolina.

Murchison does not have a star rating in the 247Sports system. He is the 15th member of the Rebels’ 2017 recruiting class, which is ranked 38th nationally and No. 13 in the SEC, per the 247Sports rankings.
