BLOG — Ole Miss’ depth chart at quarterback got a little deeper late Tuesday afternoon after East Mississippi Community College’s Bo Wallace picked to play for the Rebels and first-year head coach Hugh Freeze.
The 6-foot-5, 215-pound Wallace chose the Rebels over offers from Mississippi State, Texas and Baylor, among others. Wallace, who led the Lions to the MACJC state title and the NJCAA National Championship this year, set NJCAA single-season records for passing yards (4,604), total offense (4,810) and touchdowns (53).
Wallace, a native of Pulaski, Tenn., started his career at Arkansas State. He is eligible to enroll for the spring semester and can compete for the starting position this summer.
