"I want the ball in my hands"

Cecil Frison (TE, Memphis, TN) - One of the more personable prospects committed to Ole Miss last month after collecting 23 receptions for 441 yards at the tight end position.

The Rebels only have three returning scholarship tight ends on their roster. Ole Miss was not only looking for a tight end, but they were looking for one that could bring size, speed, and blocking ability to the table.

"I graded out at 92% the last two years at blocking," stated the 6' 4", 242 pounder from Hamilton High School.

What makes Cecil Frison such a good football player?

"My competitive nature. I am just a competitor. I do not want anybody beating me in anything."

And what will Frison have to work on for the SEC level?

"I need to keep lifting weights," added the Hamilton product who benches 315 and squats 575. "I just need to get mentally ready more than anything. I think I am physically ready. That is what got me here. But, I am going to have to get use to the pace of the game."

Although Cecil is projected for tight end at Ole Miss; Cecil made a bigger impact at defensive end last season?

"I felt I was pretty steady. Probably a little better than my junior year because I was double teamed all year. I had 65 tackles, 22 for losses, 7 pass deflections, and 8 sacks for the season."

Why would the 1st Team All-Metro performer at DE not play defensive end on the next level?

"Position wise, I think I am better at tight end. On the next level, I think I will be better at tight end because I want the ball in my hands. I think I can make the best impact on offense."

Have the Ole Miss coaches told Cecil where he is going to play next year?

"Right now, I will play tight end. That is what I am going in as. I will probably play my freshman year and play extensively," stated the confident Cecil Frison.

Why did Cecil decide to take his skills to Ole Miss after receiving scholarship offers from Oklahoma State, Vandy, Kentucky, and Memphis?

"Ole Miss provided me a chance to play early, play in the SEC, and stay close to home. That is everything I wanted going into this thing."

Frison should have no problems qualifying as he carries a 2.7 Core GPA and a 20 on the ACT.
