Ole Miss gets commitment from top prep QB Patterson

It’s early, but Ole Miss is piecing together one of the nation’s best recruiting classes for 2016. The Rebels added arguably their most important piece to it Tuesday. Calvary Baptist Academy (Shreveport, Louisiana) quarterback Shea Patterson gave his verbal commitment to Ole Miss during a ceremony at his school. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Patterson chose the Rebels over LSU and USC. (February 18, 2015, Page 1B)

Freeze aware of possible ‘embarassment’ with Kelly

It would’ve been easy for Hugh Freeze to give his latest junior college quarterback signee the boot a month ago. Instead, Ole Miss’ coach is giving Chad Kelly yet another chance. Freeze is just hoping it doesn’t come back to bite him. (February 6, 2015, Page 6A)

Rebels’ latest signing class features hits, misses

Wednesday could’ve gone better for the future of Ole Miss’ football program. It also could’ve been worse. The Rebels signed 22 players as part of this year’s recruiting class, including 18 who were verbally committed entering the day. Some needs were addressed more thoroughly than others, but head coach Hugh Freeze liked the balance of his newest crop of signees, which gave the Rebels their third straight consensus top-25 class nationally. (February 5, 2015, Page 1B, 3B)

COLUMN: Drama far from over with Ole Miss recruiting like this

Another year, and another consensus top-25 recruiting class seems to be lining up for Ole Miss. But it’s going to be another wild ride to Wednesday’s finish line. Hugh Freeze and his staff have traveled near and far for the last year — and then some — and they’ve had some of the country’s top recruits come to them. They’ve sold the program. They’ve made their best pitches. They’ve done all they can do. Now they wait. (February 3, 2015, Page 6, 7)

QB Kelly agrees to plea deal following altercation

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Mississippi quarterback signee Chad Kelly pleaded guilty Monday to a non-criminal charge of disorderly conduct and agreed to 50 hours of community service following a fight with bouncers outside a Buffalo nightclub last month that continues to cloud his status with Ole Miss. (January 6, 2015, Page 6)

Ole Miss’ Tunsil stays ‘strong’ after suffering leg injury

Ole Miss’ showing in the Peach Bowl last week went from bad to ugly to literally fearing for one’s health. That one is a critical piece to any kind of offensive success the Rebels hope to have next year with a new quarterback calling the shots. (January 4, 2015, Page 1B)

TCU pummels Rebels in Peach Bowl

ATLANTA — Ole Miss’ performance in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl will be remembered for all the wrong reasons. (January 1, 2015, Page 1B)

COLUMN: Beatdown shows there’s still a ways to go on Rebels’ journey

ATLANTA — Mama said there’d be days like this. Hugh Freeze knows there could be some like this, too. Not that it made this any easier to watch. (January 1, 2015, Page 1B)

NOTEBOOK: Boykin, TCU offense slice up Ole Miss defense

ATLANTA — One of the storylines heading into the Peach Bowl was the TCU offense, led by dual-threat quarterback Trevone Boykin, against the nation’s No. 1 scoring defense in Ole Miss. The question was who would come out on top? And the answer was — the Horned Frogs. (January 1, 2015, Page 1B)
