Ole Miss recruiting notes

Recruiting is in full swing right now with the Ole Miss football program even with the lack of a head coach. We have learned the following things from our sources:


Ole Miss now has four coaches on the road recruiting. They are Coach Matt Luke, Coach Jay Hopson, Tom Luke, and Steve Cheatom.

Tom Luke is hitting all of Mainland (FL), Orlando, Tampa, Ft. Lauderdale, and Miami. He went to Jacksonville this week to give Coach Hopson some help.

We spoke with Marcus Green again tonight, and he informed us that he is solidly committed to Ole Miss now!

As we reported earlier, Ole Miss will have its full allotment (56) of official visits when the new coach is hired.

Ryan McBean (DL) will most likely decide between Ole Miss, Oklahoma State, and West Virginia after this weekend. Ole Miss sent a scholarship paper (LOI) to Ryan's house, just in case he decides by tomorrow, but a decision is not expected until later on in the early signing period.

Speaking of December prospects, all the other December prospects that Ole Miss brought in for official visits(Lekeitharun Ford, Jerome Lyons, and Levance Richmond) were let go today. None were offered and do not expect to see their names on the board come Wednesday.

Coach Hopson visited Jimmy Johns (QB) tonight and word has it that Jimmy is strongly considering taking an official with Ole Miss on January 28th, instead of Florida.

We hear that star QB, Bill Stull, came up 60 points shy on his SAT test. The Rebels are still strongly in the mix.

Kendrick Perry (LA) is being evaluated at his basketball game tonight by the Rebels. Word has it, that Ole Miss is pretty impressed with his raw athletic ability.

We are being told that 4 Star OL, Matt Hardrick, is in the middle of setting up an official visit with Ole Miss on January 21st.

Defensive tackle prospect, Vantrese Studivant, has set up an official visit with Ole Miss on January 21st. Studivent has also lined up official visits with Georgia Tech and North Carolina State.

We hear that Coach Luke is going to be in the den of Donavon Baldwin's tonight.

5 Star linebacker, Eugene Hayes, has confirmed with Ole Miss that he will take an official with the Rebels in January.
