National Signing Day

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)

    Ole Miss lands signatures, awaits decisions from top targets

    Ole Miss’ football team is set to add another crop of players to its roster today. Exactly how many newcomers will ultimately join the fold is still in the air. It’s National Signing Day, which is the first day high school players can sign a National Letter of Intent with the school of their choice. Ole Miss began the day with commitments from 18 players who will count against the school’s 85-scholarship limit should they all sign, but the number of signatures is likely to grow as the Rebels wait on a handful of targets to make their choice. (February 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)

          Custis, Donelly commit to Rebels

          Ole Miss’ recruiting class grew by two Monday. Lovejoy (Hampton, Georgia) cornerback Montrell Custis and Cy-Fair (Cypress, Texas) defensive lineman Ross Donelly on Monday both announced their commitments to the Rebels on Twitter. The 6-foot, 175-pound Custis posted a photo of himself in Ole Miss gear along with a message Monday afternoon while Donelly, a 6-2, 300-pound defensive tackle, made his pledge in the evening. (February 3, 2015, Page 6)

            Super Bowl signals end of football season — doesn’t it?

            Football season ends with the Super Bowl. It’s time for basketball and golf and auto racing, right?

                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)
