Ole Miss lands big-time transfer in former Washington wide receiver

NCAA Football: Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl-Brigham Young vs Washington

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.

The 6-3, 229-pound California native was considered a four-star prospect, the No. 75 overall player and the No. 8 overall receiver in the in the 2013 recruiting class. He played in 12 games as a freshman and caught 20 passes for 259 yards and one touchdown for the Huskies.

He pleaded guilty in April to three misdemeanors related to a post-Super Bowl altercation with two Seahawks fans in Seattle. Stringfellow and Washington QB Cyler Miles were suspended by head coach Chris Petersen.

Stringfellow was ordered to serve on a work crew, pay a fine and attend anger-management counseling. He’ll have three years of eligibility remaining in Oxford after he sits out the 2014 season.

  • Hopefully he can keep it clean. Looks like he will be a good fit for our system, too. Washington throws a lot of screens his way and with his size he causes all sorts of problems for defenders. He seems like a guy we can use to pick up a few yards just muscling corners on screen routes.

  • I know a lot of Nebraska fans are really upset about this. But his guy is pretty much Treadwell 2.0. I can just imagine both of them on the field at the same time, both are 6’3 225 lbs or bigger. Plus you have think about Pack, Engram, Hibbler, and Adeboyejo. Plus whoever else Ole Miss adds to the team by next year.

  • Well, I guess I’ll have to give Auburn a break for a few weeks….

    • PCB Rebel, the difference is that Stringfellow doesn’t have an history of making bad choices. He didn’t get kicked off his team, it was his choice to transfer. So I don’t really see the where the two are that closely related. Auburn is known for picking up every ones bad apples every year.
