HATTIESBURG, Miss. — DeKaylin Metcalf has been committed to Ole Miss since June of 2013, but he is going to give one last look at other schools before National Signing Day.
Metcalf, a 4-star wide receiver from Oxford (Miss.) High School, said Alabama and Auburn will get official visits from him in January.
“Those two schools have been recruiting me really hard,” Metcalf told SEC Country. “They have been telling me that they are great places, they are losing some receivers and I can come in start.”
The 6-foot-3, 195-pounder said both schools’ recruiting pitches revolved around the opportunity to advance to the NFL when his college career ends.
“Alabama puts out a lot of people into the NFL draft and Auburn does, too,” Metcalf said. “Auburn passes the ball a lot, and they are losing around six receivers. Ole Miss is obviously close to home, so it’s a lot to consider.”
After his official visits, Metcalf said he will have to think his recruitment over one last time before he signs commitment papers in February.
“I’ll look into it very closely,” he said. “I will have to talk to my parents and to God about it.”
Despite his upcoming visits with other SEC programs, Metcalf doubled down on his commitment to the University of Mississippi.
“As of right now, I don’t see myself at anywhere but Ole Miss,” Metcalf said.
