Ole Miss set to host over 20 four-to-five star prospects

Ole Miss is set for its biggest recruiting weekend of the year, with the Rebels set to host some 20 four-star-or-better prospects this weekend.

Spirit's Take: Anderson is considering Ole Miss, LSU and Texas. The Rebels lead, and he's projected to immediately compete for a starting job at safety should he choose Ole Miss.

Spirit's Take: Becker is considering Florida State, N.C. State, Ohio State and Ole Miss. The Seminoles appear the favorite. He's one of the fastest-rising prospects in the country.

Spirit's Take: Brown's considering Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Alabama. His recruitment is currently too close to call. He's the closest thing to former Rebel wide receiver Laquon Treadwell hitting the college scene next year.

Spirit's Take: Ole Miss and Alabama are in front of Miami (Fla.) and LSU for Carter. We think Ole Miss is currently the team to beat. He's been one of the Rebels' top priorities, regardless of position, for months.

Spirit's Take: Cooley has been committed to Ole Miss for quite some time, and he's remained solid throughout his recruitment. He's been the Rebels' top tight end target since Day 1.

Spirit's Take: DeFoor is arguably Ole Miss' most underrated commitment, and he's solid in his pledge to the Rebels.

Spirit's Take: Alabama and Maryland lead heading into Hall's first trip to Ole Miss ever. However, Hall is one to keep an eye on this weekend, as sources believe the Rebels have a chance to make up a lot of ground.

Spirit's Take: Jones is one of the top defensive backs in the country, though he didn't garner the attention of his teammate Greg Little. He's solid in his commitment, and he's expected to be an immediate contributor in Ole Miss' defensive backfield.

Spirit's Take: Ole Miss and Mississippi State lead Missouri, Miami (Fla.) and Alabama for Jones. His recruitment is too close to call. Wherever he lands, Jones is versatile enough to play multiple positions and push to see the field early.

Spirit's Take: Ole Miss has gained momentum as of late in the race for Knott, though Alabama and Mississippi State remain heavily in the picture. He's set to announce Monday at 10 a.m. at his school.

Spirit's Take: Little is the nation's top offensive lineman and expected to step in and, at the very least, compete to start immediately in place of Laremy Tunsil, who left school early for the NFL as one of the top prospects in the upcoming draft. Arguably no recruit is more important for Ole Miss for the 2016 season than Little.

Spirit's Take: Luafatasaga has remained committed to Ole Miss for a year despite having not seen campus. This weekend's visit is expected to end his recruitment for good.

Spirit's Take: Mathews pledged to Ole Miss in July, becoming the first blue-chip offensive lineman to cast his lot with the Rebels. He could push for playing time immediately as a true freshman.

Spirit's Take: Mathis could help Ole Miss at a number of different positions. Ole Miss appears to have taken the lead over Michigan and Florida.

Spirit's Take: Though he has quite a ways ago, obviously, the measurables for Metcalf have earned him early comparisons to Julio Jones coming out of high school.

Spirit's Take: Pennamon is the biggest question mark left of Ole Miss' commitments. Texas A&M and Alabama are in hot pursuit with National Signing Day right around the corner.

Spirit's Take: Simmons is the most important uncommitted recruit left on Ole Miss' board. The Rebels lead Mississippi State and Alabama for his signature. Suffice to say, with a defensive line need following the loss of Robert Nkemdiche and others, Simmons is ready-made to step in and play now.

Spirit's Take: Oklahoma and Texas lead Ole Miss for Southall.

Spirit's Take: Street is another player Ole Miss believes could play several positions in his Rebel career. He was the 7A Offensive Player of the Year in Alabama as a senior.

Spirit's Take: The only question for Tisdale isn't if he's firmly committed to Ole Miss (he is), but if he'll end up at linebacker or along the defensive line once he arrives on campus.
