Recruiting Competition: After his senior season in high school, Jeremy could have gone just about anywhere. He chose LSU. After not getting eligible, he realized who really loved him – Ole Miss, and has pretty much been with the Rebs ever since.

Quotable: "It's been a long road to get here, but I am finally home. I plan on making the most of it. I'm going to work hard and see where I land. I would like a shot at quarterback, but really, I just want to help the team in any way I can."

Scouting Report: What do you say about a big kid who can run and is being considered for QB/TE/DE/OL/DL? Versatile and athletic. S&C Coach Paul Jackson had this to say: "A lot of people talk about Jeremy needing to lose weight. He probably does need to lose some, but I tell you, he's just a big kid. There's not a whole lot of body fat for him to lose and he's right at 300 pounds," said Jackson. "He's a rare specimen and, so far, he's had a great attitude and approach to our program."

Coach Hugh Freeze Quote: "Jeremy is a rare athlete. He's got great size, he moves well and he's a competitor. We are glad to finally have him here so we can figure out where his future is, both for his benefit and out team's best interest."
