Ole Miss Rebels National Signing Day Recap

NCAA Football: Music City Bowl-Mississippi vs Georgia Tech

Ole Miss Rebels

      • SEC TEAM RANK: No. 9
      • NATIONAL TEAM RANK: No. 16
      • LAST YEAR’S FINISH: No. 4 in SEC; No. 8 in nation.
      • NO. 1 CURRENT RECRUIT: OL Rod Taylor (No. 47 in nation)
      • SDS 3-STAR ‘SLEEPER’ STAR: JUCO offensive tackle Fahn Cooper has been a nice addition to the class, and he’s one of those recruits who really appreciates his future school.
      • SUM THE DAY UP: Ole Miss had a very nice day, adding three recruits to an already impressive class. It may not have been the national news maker of last year, but this was a good day. Flipping four-star prospect and former Notre Dame signee Tee Shepard from Mississippi State was huge, and OL Jordan Sims and DB Jacorius Law were also good pickups. It certainly wasn’t a quiet day for the Rebels.
      • OVERALL: What can you say? One year after having a top 10 class nationally with a redhot finish, the Rebels finished with another top 20 class this year. They are getting it done on the recruiting trail and putting pressure on their in-state rival. Players like C.J. Hampton and Rod Taylor were coveted by the entire SEC, not just schools like Arkansas and Mississippi State. That’s saying something. Another great effort by Hugh Freeze.
