Ole Miss Sports

Rebels will look to young LBs

Ole Miss had a pretty standard sales pitch when it was recruiting this year’s freshmen linebackers: Come to Oxford and you’ll have a chance to contribute right away.

The extent, however, that the Rebels will be relying on the newcomers could be a bit surprising. (more…) (August 23, 2011, Page 9)

    Denny following family tradition, commits to play baseball at Ole Miss

    Last Saturday Ole Miss baseball coach Mike Bianco made prep pitcher Matt Denny an offer he couldn’t refuse.

    At the conclusion of Denny’s visit to Oxford, Bianco presented the 6-foot-1 left-hander from Jackson Academy with a scholarship offer.

    By the end of the day Denny had verbally committed to the Rebels. (more…) (August 23, 2011, Page 9)

      OM women netters add blue chipper

      The Ole Miss women’s tennis team is riding high Tuesday with the addition of blue chip recruit Julia Jones. Jones signed an Southeastern Conference Award letter to become a member of the team. Jones, who hails from Seminole, Fla., rose to as high as No. 6 in the nation by TennisRecruiting.net and No. 1 in Florida.

      “The signing of Julia Jones increases the level of this recruiting class,” Ole Miss coach Mark Beyers said.   “This class is going to make an immediate impact, and Julia is among those. She was a highly recruited student-athlete.” (more…) (August 23, 2011, Page 9)

        Dorsey looking for redemption in 2011

        A lot was made of Wayne Dorsey’s arrival in Oxford prior to the 2010 spring semester.

        After graduating early from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, Dorsey enrolled early in Ole Miss to get a jump start on adapting to life in the Southeastern Conference. (more…) (August 23, 2011, Page 2B)

          Rebels have talent, depth at RB

          It’s probably fair to say Ole Miss fans are hoping for a different 2011 on the gridiron.

          One area that will need to remain the same if the Rebels are going to improve on their 4-8 season from a year ago, is their rushing attack.

          Ole Miss ranked third in the Southeastern Conference in rushing offense, averaging 207.6 yards per game, and returns its top three running backs in All-SEC candidate Brandon Bolden, fellow senior Enrique Davis and sophomore Jeff Scott. (more…) (August 17, 2011, Page 6)

              Golson turns down offer from BoSox

              The wild roller coaster that surrounded the Boston Red Sox late courtship of dual-sport standout Senquez Golson finally came to an end Monday night with the passing of Major League Baseball’s midnight (ET) deadline for drafted players to sign professional contracts.

              Golson, who had been practicing with the Gridiron Rebels up until flying to Boston early Monday, turned down at least one offer of $1.3 million according to RebelGrove.com to retain his amateur status.

              It was believed all along that Golson’s decision would go down to the wire, so much so that following Monday’s football practice Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt asked reporters if there was any news. (August 16, 2011, Page 8)

                OL Morris makes move to first team at guard

                Aaron Morris hasn’t wasted any time making an impression on the Rebels’ coaching staff.

                After showing out during Ole Miss’ first preseason scrimmage on Saturday, the freshman offensive lineman worked at left guard with the first team during Monday’s scrimmage. (August 16, 2011, Page 8)

                  No real movement in Ole Miss quarterback race

                  While news of freshman cornerback Senquez Golson negotiating with the Boston Red Sox dominated discussion following Ole Miss’ first scrimmage of the preseason, there was actually football played at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

                  The quarterbacks have had an up and down week of practice and didn’t buck that trend on Saturday.

                  Of the three vying for the starting job, only Zack Stoudt threw a touchdown pass (a 25-yard pass to freshman receiver Donte Moncrief in single coverage).

                  Also, none of the three completed more than a third of the passes they attempted. (August 15, 2011, Page 1B)

                    RHP Hensley: I’m a Rebel

                    Sunday felt like the perfect day to make it official.

                    After months of being courted by some of the top baseball programs in the country, and one day after pitching a scoreless first inning for the American squad in the Under Armor All-America Baseball Game at Wrigley field, elite pitching recruit Ty Hensley tweeted “It’s official… I’m an Ole Miss Rebel!!! #hottytoddy” prior to flying home from Chicago to Edmond, Okla.
