Stock Rises

Matt Womack out of Senatobia, Miss., knew camp week was going to make or break his recruitment. So far, things couldn't be going any better for the 6' 8", 330-pound offensive lineman.

"I got offers from Ole Miss and MSU the past couple of days," Womack said. "Ole Miss and Mississippi State were outstanding. I've been working hard to get faster and it's paying off. I'm headed to LSU (Monday). I'm headed to camp at South Carolina next Saturday and I'm done with camps. I'll make a choice then."

Womack showed up at Ole Miss camp Friday with high hopes. He didn't disappoint, running a 5.23 and a 5.21 in his two 40-yard dash tries.

"It was a completely different change from last year to this year," Womack said following Ole Miss elite camp Friday. "Last year it did nothing compared to today. Last year I could barely stop anybody. This year I came in here, and I felt like I did a great job against the top defensive lineman at the camp. Guys like Benito Jones and Fletcher Adams. I did good against those guys."

Womack worked hard this offseason to improve his lateral quickness. It was evident at the elite camp.

"I've been doing a lot of cone drills, dots, ladders, a lot of conditioning. Coach (Matt) Luke said I looked great. He said it was the biggest change he has ever seen anyone go through from 10th grade until now. It was just a complete change. I always like working under coach Luke. I think he's really honest and really friendly. I think we get along really good."

Womack was pleased to get that first SEC offer under his belt.

"I just like Ole Miss. It's close to home. Growing up most all of my family grew up Ole Miss fans. It's a great campus with great coaches. They're all nice. They have really good facilities. I don't know. It's just always kind of been a dream of mine to play here."
