Georgia to Ole Miss transfer Otis Reese takes his waiver campaign to social media
Georgia transfer Otis Reese has turned to social media to help his cause as he looks to transfer to Ole Miss. He announced his plans in January, but has been waiting for immediate waiver clearance to play since then.
Reese appeared in 25 games during two seasons at Georgia, including all 14 games of the 2019 season. Last year, he recorded 3 total tackles, with two coming in the Arkansas State game. Most of his action at Georgia was in late-game cleanup duty, or on special teams, but he gained a reputation as a big hitter.
“All I ask is for what is fair, let me play this season with my brothers!!,” Reese tweeted.
Coming out of Lee County High School, the Leesburg, Georgia native was rated 4-stars, the No. 5 outside linebacker, No. 12 Georgia product and No. 87 prospect overall nationally in the 2018 class on the 247Sports Composite. Reese had 15 scholarship offers including Michigan, where current Ole Miss assistant Chris Partridge was his primary recruiter.
Before his first spring at Georgia in 2019, Reese was expected to challenge Richard LeCounte III for the starting safety position opposite of J.R. Reed. But then he came down with mononucleosis. That knocked him out for the latter part of spring drills and forced him to miss the annual G-Day spring game.
