Laremy Tunsil

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)

Liggins focuses on ‘being the best tackle I can be’

Jeremy Liggins didn’t put up a fight. When Ole Miss’ coaches approached the rising junior about moving to yet another position before spring practice started, one where he would go from having a chance to touch the football on any given play to having no shot, Liggins didn’t plead to stay put. He did what the Rebels needed him to do — and what he may have needed to do for his future. (April 9, 2015, Page 6, 7)

Back at WR, Jones a wild card for Rebels’ offense

Derrick Jones is brimming with talent. It’s why Ole Miss’ coaches are determined to get him on the field. And they’ve decided once and for all that his best chance for that to happen is at wide receiver. (April 8, 2015, Page 3B)

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)

Rebels’ young linemen getting extended looks

It makes sense for Ben Still, Justin Bell and Fahn Cooper to be working as starters on Ole Miss’ offensive line this spring since each held that role a season ago. But lining up directly behind them — and sometimes to the side — are three freshmen, a sophomore and a converted tight end among others. (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)

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)
