Former Washington Huskies receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow will transfer to Ole Miss, according to the Omaha World-Herald.
Stringfellow originally looked like he was Nebraska bound, but he switched his decision following a visit with the Rebels.
“My visit and just getting to know the coaches and talking to the players about what type of program it was,” his text read to the paper.
Stringfellow also tweeted a photo of Ole Miss’ No. 3 jersey.
