Our sources informed us that Michael Oher was playing it cool during his inhome with the Rebel staff. By cool, we do not mean that he was "big timing" the Rebel staff, he just was not tipping his hand.
Tennessee is still Ole Miss' main competition for Michael Oher. Our sources feel that Coach Trooper Taylor at Tennessee has done a great job with Oher.
Having said that, our sources still feel like there is a 90% chance that Michael will sign with Ole Miss because of his ties with the Rebels.
Derek Pegues' inhome visit went great. Our sources are very confident that Pegues will be a Rebel when it is all said and done.
Jamarca Sanford, Derek's best friend and the one who Pegues looks up to the most, was a part of the inhome visit.
The Ole Miss staff, plus current Ole Miss players, Jamarca Sanford, Peria Jerry (commitment), and Reterio Brown, had a sit down with Derek Pegues and John Jerry during their inhome visit.
Travis Sanford came down with a virus and was not a part of the inhome visit.
Ole Miss' main competition for Pegues looks to be LSU. This is a good sign for the Rebels because Derek had been very high on Tennessee for a long/long time. That looks to have changed.
Pegues took an official visit with Tennessee last weekend, and our sources tell us that Derek does not want to be that far away from home.
As far as John Jerry and Travis Sanford, our sources feel that they will sign with Ole Miss on signing day.. There are no worries from their side about these two prospects.
