It’s all about who you know.
During Matt Insell’s introductory press conference in March, the former top assistant at Kentucky talked at length about the importance of networking.
Looking back at his first signing class, the first-year Ole Miss coach wasn’t kidding.
Three of the four players Insell signed ended up at Ole Miss because of who he knew, because of previous relationships and connections.
The third player was one whom the former staff had recruited and Insell had actually scouted while at UK.
When the late signing period concluded, Insell had signed two international players in Claudia Ortiz-Ledesma and Shequila Joseph, a standout from Florida in Tianah Alvarado another player from South Mississippi in Bretta Hart.
