Kermit Davis’ squad just received a boost as Devontae Shuler is returning for his junior season in Oxford.
Shuler started 31 games for the Rebels last season in Davis’ first year leading the Ole Miss program and averaged just over 10 points per game with 4.2 rebounds and added three assists per contest.
