    Tunsil aiming for health, No. 1 draft pick in 2016

    Laremy Tunsil is putting in the work to get back on the football field as soon as he can. But Ole Miss’ star offensive lineman is working for much more than that. Tunsil, who’s a little more than three months removed from dislocating his ankle and fracturing his left fibula in the Peach Bowl, has progressed enough in his rehab where he can walk without a protective boot. His routine starts at 2 p.m. each day and includes running in a pool and balance work, all of which takes anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour. (April 5, 2015, Page 3B)

      Depth breeding spring competition for Ole Miss

      Ole Miss football coach Hugh Freeze likes the numbers he sees when he looks around the practice field. Three full recruiting classes for Freeze and his staff have the Rebels’ roster stocked with the most quality players they’ve had since arriving in Oxford four Decembers ago. The starters at each position — at least the ones that have locked up that distinction — jog off the field after a few reps and are replaced by bodies that are nearly just as big, move nearly as fast and can do many of the same things athletically without much a dropoff. (April 3, 2015, Page 7A)

        Ole Miss looking for next man in the middle

        Ole Miss is exhausting all avenues in its attempt to find the next man in the middle of its defense. Deterrian Shackelford’s eligibility expired after six seasons last year, leaving a position that’s been stable in recent seasons suddenly surrounded by uncertainty. Shackelford moved to middle linebacker last year to fill the void of Mike Marry, who started for three seasons before Shackelford took over. (April 1, 2015, Page 1B)

            Barber hurls another no-hitter in OHS’s lastest win

            Jason Barber wasn’t perfect, but he was close enough. Oxford’s junior right-hander overwhelmed Saltillo’s lineup from the start, hurling a no-hitter and helping the Chargers (15-0, 3-0 Division 2-5A) keep their perfect record intact with a 10-0 victory in five innings at Edwin Moak Field on Monday. (March 31, 2015, Page 6)

              Judd gets chance to show power in Rebels’ backfield

              Ole Miss didn’t get much power out of its running game last season. Akeem Judd may be able to help with that. The Rebels have amped up the physicality on the ground this spring, emphasizing what head coach Hugh Freeze called “good, dirty runs.” Judd, who’s going through his first spring at Ole Miss, is impressing in that role. (March 30, 2015, Page 6)

                Shepard, Bridges lead long, revamped secondary

                They wear No. 1 and No. 2, respectively. It’s a fitting number scheme for the expectations Ole Miss has for Tony Bridges and Tee Shepard in its retooled secondary. Bridges and Shepard have been working as the first-team cornerbacks for a majority of the spring, and barring any significant injuries, they’ll stay there this fall. Ranked by varying recruiting sites as the nation’s top junior college cornerbacks in the last two recruiting cycles, the pair is a different breed than what the Rebels have had the last few seasons. (March 30, 2015, Page 6)

                  Roth’s gem, Bianco’s hit lead OHS past Trojans again

                  Oxford’s baseball team is right where it wants to be. The Chargers finished off a week-long sweep of New Hope with a 3-1 victory Friday at Ole Miss’ Oxford-University Stadium. The win kept Oxford (14-0, 2-0 Division 2-5A) undefeated and gave the Chargers an early leg up in their quest to defend their division championship. (March 29, 2015, Page 2B)

The former Ole Miss All-American’s decision was announced by Bill Hancock, the CFP’s executive director, on Friday.
