Eric Nicks (FB, Lafayette County, MS) - Eric had over 1,200 yards of offense at tailback this season. He attended the Egg Bowl and went to every Ole Miss home game this year.

"I thought Ole Miss should have beaten them (MSU) worse than they did."

The Rebels called Eric today and are coming in for an inhome visit on Thursday.

Chad Green
Chad Green (DE, Hinds CC, MS) - Was named Mississippi's Defensive MVP and was a Preseason NJCAA 1st Team All-American selection.

"Coach Hopson (Ole Miss) is coming by the crib on Thursday, but I am liking North Carolina State, LSU, Tennessee, and Southern Cal the best."

"I have not set up any visits yet though."

Chad is a May prospect.

Greg Peterson
Greg Peterson (DE, Hinds CC, MS) - Greg had 52 tackles, 7 sacks, and 6 caused fumbles this year. He made 1st Team All-State and was a Preseason NJCAA Honorable Mention All-American candidate this year.

"I am looking at North Carolina State and Ole Miss the hardest. Coach Hopson (Ole Miss) is coming to see me on Thursday."

Greg has not scheduled his official visits yet.

Peterson is an August prospect.

Sandy Quinn (DT, ICC, MS) - Sandy just called out of the blue and told us the following:

"I transferred from Hinds CC to ICC this summer. I was not getting any P.T. at Hinds, so I came over here."

"I played D.T. (6' 3", 250) this year and played good. I do not know my stats yet, but I played good."

Mississippi State, MTSU, and New Mexico have been in contact with Sandy in the last week.

Rashad Roussell
Rashad Roussell (DL, Hahnville, LA) - The 4 Star athlete was named MVP of District 8 (5A) and was also named Metro MVP.

"Oklahoma State, West Virginia, and Auburn are coming by my school this week. I have set up two visits so far (Oklahoma State and West Virginia), but I am going to have to reschedule them because of my ACT test."

"I will take my official visits with Okl St, W.V., Auburn, Ole Miss, and I want to check out Memphis."

Sergio Render
Sergio Render (OL/DL, Newnan, GA) - Finished the season grading out over 85% on the offensive side of the ball and averaged 7 tackles a game, despite limited playing time at defensive tackle.

The former Florida State commitment had the following things to say:

"I want to play DT on the next level."

"I have already visited Virginia Tech, and I am talking to Arkansas and Ole Miss right now about when I am coming."

Anthony Dunning (OL, Coffeeville, AL) - The following things were said during our interview:

"Mississippi State, USM, Ole Miss, Louisville, and MTSU have all called within the past week."

"I went to MSU when they played Arkansas. It was a good game."

"I was suppose to go to the Egg Bowl, but my little brother got sick." "I will probably take my official visits with Ole Miss, MSU, and Louisville (all have offered). It looks like Auburn has filled up on (offensive) linemen, so they are pretty much out of the picture."

Terrell Smith
Terrell Smith (S/WR, Clay Chalkville, AL) -'s #22 ranked safety in the country had the following to say:

"Coach Sweeney (Clemson) is coming by tomorrow and Coaches Cutcliffe and Hobby (Ole Miss) are coming by on Thursday."
