Laquon Treadwell

Freeze: Tunsil back running after injury

Laremy Tunsil has his sights on being the top overall pick in next year’s NFL Draft, but Ole Miss’ rising junior offensive lineman will have to show teams that he can still play at that kind of level after suffering a broken leg in the Peach Bowl on New Year’s Eve. (May 13, 2015, Page 6)

Hearing better than ever, Shepard ‘ready to go’ in SEC

With quick feet and fluid hips to go with his 6-foot-1, 195-pound frame, Tee Shepard has all the physical tools that make Ole Miss’ coaches believe he could be a true shutdown cornerback for the Rebels this fall. Now Shepard has the hearing to match. Most of it at least. (April 13, 2015, Page 6)

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)

Treadwell working his way back to full speed

Laquon Treadwell has been running routes for the better part of a month. He’s been running around longer than that. The rehabilitation process for Ole Miss’ star wide receiver has been progressing at warp speed since he suffered his gruesome leg injury in the final seconds of the Rebels’ nail-biting loss to Auburn in early November inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. (March 26, 2015, Page 6)

Injuries piling up for Ole Miss during ‘physical’ spring

Ole Miss’ football team is hurting. The Rebels are going through their third week of spring practice with many of their first- and second-stringers watching from the sideline. Most of the injuries are on the offensive side of the ball as an offensive line that ended the 2014 season banged up continues to be depleted while the three quarterbacks vying to replace Bo Wallace have limited receivers to target. (March 25, 2015, Page 6)

New faces in new places headline start of Ole Miss’ spring

It may not feel like it outside, but spring has arrived for the Ole Miss football team as the Rebels begin practice. There were a lot of questions heading into this year, and coach Hugh Freeze attempted to answer as many as he could during his annual spring press conference Tuesday. (March 4, 2015, Page 1B, 2B)

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)

Recruiting Notebook: OL commit Richmond doesn’t rule out post-NSD decisoin

Offensive lineman Drew Richmond had what he called a “good trip” to Oxford over the weekend for his official visit, but the Ole Miss commitment’s recruitment isn’t over. In fact, it could go past National Signing Day. The elite offensive tackle from Memphis University School verbally committed to the Rebels back in September over the likes of Tennessee, Alabama and Ohio State and made the short drive back to campus to join other commits and top targets for Ole Miss’ big recruiting weekend before leaving Sunday. (January 26, 2015, Page 6, 7)

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)
