Mississippi State has received quite a bit of attention in recent weeks as its recruiting class has ascended to near top five status. That’s top five status … in the nation.
But over the weekend, Ole Miss showed its recruiting muscle when it swayed two Bulldogs commitments to swing over to the Rebels’ side of the equation. Armani Linton had come aboard with Mississippi State in February, and in December Jay Johnson had picked Starkville as his future home.
Both switched gears after attending a camp in Oxford.
Also joining the Rebels’ class was dual-threat QB/athlete Jason Pellerin, whose stock had risen in recent weeks as quarterbacks had been getting scarcer. All three prospects are of the three-star variety,.
“Growing up, I’ve wanted to play in the SEC,” Pellerin told RebelGrove.com. “Coach (Hugh) Freeze is definitely a guy I want to play for. The type of offense they run, I think it will be fitting for me. It’s like an NFL offense.”
Ole Miss’ class bumped up to No. 22 overall in the nation with the additions.
