With the final weekend before National Signing Day coming up, Ole Miss has one last chance to make a good impression before filling out its 2017 recruiting class.
There’s plenty of work to be done, but the Rebels do have some momentum on their side for a few prospects. That momentum came from their visitors last week and should continue this weekend, as coach Hugh Freeze and his staff are looking to nail down some commitments.
Let’s take a look at where things stood on the recruiting trail as of Friday:
Where Ole Miss’ 2017 recruiting class ranks
Although the days before National Signing Day have continued to dwindle, Ole Miss’ recruiting class still hasn’t picked up any new commitments. The Rebels have 14 commitments heading into the weekend and are ranked No. 51 in the national rankings, as well as No. 13 in the SEC.
Who are Ole Miss’ top commitments?
- 4-star WR D.D. Bowie (Morton, Miss.)
- 4-star ILB Breon Dixon (Loganville, Ga.)
- 3-star WDE Markel Winters (Tallahassee, Fla.)
- 3-star OLB Josh Clarke (New Orleans)
- 3-star S A.J. Harris (Madison, Ala.)
Who committed to Ole Miss this week?
The Rebels haven’t landed a commitment in the past three weeks, but, of course, that will change rather quickly. Ole Miss has plenty of spots open in its 2017 class, and some guys should start claiming their spots as soon as this weekend.
Who de-committed from Ole Miss this week?
While Ole Miss hasn’t gained any commitments, the Rebels also haven’t lost any members of their class in the past couple of weeks. However, it wouldn’t be shocking to see a defection or two before Wednesday rolls around.
Who are Ole Miss’ top uncommitted prospects?
- 4-star CB Chevin Calloway (Dallas, Texas)
- 4-star RB Cordarrian Richardson (Memphis, Tenn.)
- 4-star OT Obinna Eze (Nashville, Tenn.)
- 4-star WDE Chester Graves (Kansas City, Mo.)
- 3-star ATH Kam White (Clinton, Miss.)
- 3-star ATH Chris Miller (Denton, Texas)
- Quarterback (2): Alex Faniel, Jordan Ta’amu
- Wide receiver (1): D.D. Bowie
- Offensive line (2): Ben Brown, Lavante Epson
- Defensive line (3): Ryder Anderson, Markel Winters, Larrell Murchison
