Ole Miss flips two Mississippi State commits over weekend, adds three total


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.

  • Good luck. See ya, wouldn’t want to be ya.

    • Rriffe, why is that when MSU gets the recruits they are so happy and say that they really need them and want them, but when Ole Miss flips them all of a sudden MSU fans are saying that they really never wanted them and they weren’t that good to begin with? Do you realize how stupid MSU fans sound when they say that?

      • I gotta say that I always feel a lil let down when athletes leave our program but I know they have their reasons and wish them the best wherever they do go, including TSUN. I’ll take all the talent we can get so people will start respecting both major Mississippi Football programs for a change. Congrats on the flips and we’ll see if they made the right choice in due time haha

        • Finally, it’s nice to know that some MSU fans aren’t completely all idiots. Even thou I don’t like MSU, I want them to still do well.

  • It’s probably because of the excellent academic programs at the University of Mississippi.
