Baseball program receives two new commits

The Ole Miss baseball program took advantage of the electric atmosphere from the Rebel/Tide showdown over the weekend.The University of Mississippi hosted three official visitors this pastweekend. All three are now committed.To read who these prospects are, read below.


Official Visitors

*The first prospect is a familiar name.

LHP Michael Robbins (6' 0", 180) out of Meridian CC.

Michael prepped at Southaven High school and was the DeSoto County Player of the Year.

Michael had already visited Alabama and Memphis, officially, but his life long dream of playing for Ole Miss one day was simply too much to overcome. Welcome home Michael!!

An interesting side not; Michael is a sign and draft prospect for the Atlanta Braves. What this means is that Atlanta holds his rights in next year's draft. No other team will be allowed to draft Michael in the upcoming draft. We do not expect Robbins to sign a contact with Atlanta this summer, but that possibility certainly does exist.


*The next prospect that committed is Dan Black.

Dan is a 6' 4", 220 pound switch hitter that plays corner infield (1B or 3B). He is from Carmel, Indiana which is the same home town that Ole Miss' starting point guard is from, Todd Abernethy.

Dan played with Ole Miss signee, Lance Lynn, this past summer and really caught Ole Miss' eyes while they were scouting Lance.

As you can see with his size, Dan is a long ball hitter. In fact, Black has over 40 home runs in his school career.

Dan took official visits to Indiana and South Alabama before deciding on Ole Miss.


*The third official visitor had previously committed to Ole Miss, CF Justin Reed (5' 11", 185).

Justin made the Jr Olympic team this summer and is the only Mississippian to make the team since we have been in this business.


Unofficial Visitors

The Ole Miss football program hosted QB prospect, Chris Smelley, over the weekend.

Chris is also a diamond star for American Christian Aca (AL).

Chris' teammate, David Kindred, committed to Ole Miss' baseball program back in the summer. David was also in for an unofficial visit.

Another two way sports star, Justin Woodall, also dropped by the Ole Miss baseball scrimmage over the weekend.

Our sources tell me that Justin had a very positive talk with the Ole Miss baseball staff during the scrimmage.


Will there be anymore action between now and signing day?


Look for Ole Miss to add a player or two more before it is all said and done.

We hear they are looking for another two way player and another arm.
