Tanner Mordecai helped Midway high to a seven game winning streak to complete their regular season. Along the way he passed for over a sixty percent completion rate and over 2,300 yards of offense. The 6-foot-2, 212-pound signal caller put his name on the map. Offers came in from Texas Tech, Baylor, Houston, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Indiana and several more.

This weekend he stopped by Ole Miss to check out their campus.


"This is my first time over here," Mordecai said. "I'm here to build a better relationship with the coaches, first of all. And I want to see them scrimmage later on today so I can see everything up close."

The Rebels hired a new offensive coordinator in coach Phil Longo. The new coordinator was at Sam Houston State which gives him some familiarly with Longo and his offense.

"He was very successful there. I kept up with him while he was out here. We've built a good relationship. I think I would fit in really good in his offense."

What else has him interested in Ole Miss besides the new OC and a scholarship?

"They have a really good program and a lot of history. I've been keeping up with them for a while."

Right now four schools seem to stick out.

"Ole Miss, Baylor, Texas Tech, and Indiana are probably the schools I'm looking at the hardest right now."

Some seem to think that the local school, Baylor, is the leader.

"That's not true. I guess people say that because it's right there in my backyard. It's a great school but so are the rest of my top schools."
