Rated as the No. 12 prospect in the country, 2017 running back Cam Akers is a fantastic athlete.
The 5-foot-11, 213-pound rusher is said to run a 4.44 40-yard dash time. Big-time programs from all over are gushing over Mississippi’s top prospect.
Ole Miss is doing everything it can to keep the top in-state running back home. On Sunday, multiple members of the staff paid Akers a visit:

The Rebels are battling the likes of Florida State, Ohio State, Georgia, Alabama, LSU, and Florida for his services.
He’d be an instant-impact performer to whichever program he signs with. Akers runs with terrific balance — and pairs very good quickness with surprising power.
The battle to sign Akers figures to go down to the wire.
