"I wanted to see a family atmosphere," Wilson said. "That was the main thing I wanted to see. You can tell they treat their players like their own children by the way they communicate with them. It seems like they try to push you to the best of your abilities."

The Ole Miss coaches and facilities also stood out.

"It was great. I love their facilities and the coaching staff is excellent. I can see why so many of the top players around the country are going to Ole Miss now. I was really curious about what was going on over there. I now know why. You can really tell that they are about to become an elite program."

Jarvis Wilson played defensive back and wide receiver last season. What do the Rebels have in store for him?

"I think they want me at safety or corner. They are coming to see me in my spring game. I did not run all that well last summer at their camp so they want to see me run some more."

Wilson was one of the standouts in the scrimmage at cornerback for the Mississippi Grind 7-on-7 team recently.

"I played corner a lot last season too. I had four interceptions and a bunch of deflections. I am physical and my size (6' 0", 180) allows me to do some things the smaller corners can not do."

Jarvis' junior season he had 359 rushing yards, 343 receiving yards and four interceptions on defense.
