      Ole Miss receivers draw mixed reviews in spring

      What kind of spring have Ole Miss’ wide receivers had? A former defensive back has been the best of the group. That’s the word from head coach Hugh Freeze, whose wideouts have struggled to string together consistency the last five weeks. There’s no shortage of targets for quarterbacks Ryan Buchanan, DeVante Kincade and Chad Kelly to throw to even with Laquon Treadwell out, but even the simplest passes aren’t always resulting in completions. (April 10, 2015, Page 6A)

          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)

            The man who was fatally gunned down from behind by a police officer in Charleston, South Carolina over the weekend has a connection to Ole Miss defensive end Fadol Brown.

                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)

                  Rebels drop weight, transform bodies

                  Hugh Freeze knew if he wanted more from some of his key contributors while developing quality depth behind them, Ole Miss’ football coach was going to have to trim the excess fat. Literally. With the help of sports dietitian Frank Newell, head athletic trainer Pat Jernigan and strength coach Paul Jackson, the Rebels have gotten leaner this spring and improved their endurance to better keep up in Freeze’s up-tempo practices. (April 6, 2015, Page 7)

                    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)
