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 RB Wilkins returns to practice

Ole Miss has one of its running backs back. It’s waiting on another. I’Tavius Mathers and Jordan Wilkins were both knocked out of the Rebels’ rout of Louisiana-Lafayette early with injuries. Mathers sprained a big toe while Wilkins suffered a sprained ankle and took a hit to the knee that required an MRI to determine the severity. But results showed nothing more than a mild sprain of Wilkins’ MCL, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said, and Wilkins was back at practice on Wednesday. (September 18, 2014, Page 8)

Freeze ‘disappointed’ in backup QB race

Rebels’ newcomers make good impression

Ole Miss has built enough depth to where it doesn’t need its freshmen to come in and play immediately. The talent, though, of the entire incoming class may leave the coaches with no other choice. (August 5, 2014, Page 6)

Rebels open camp with improved depth, talent

Ole Miss’ football team is switching things up early in fall camp. The Rebels hit the practice field for the first time Saturday morning in preparation for the upcoming season, and for the first time in head coach Hugh Freeze’s tenure, the freshmen and the upperclassmen have spent some time practicing separately thanks to restocked roster. (August 4, 2014, Page 6)
