"I got my ACT score in today," added Jerrell Powe. "I made an 18. I needed a 17 to qualify."
What about Powe's class work?
"I have already finished with my books. I made everything I needed. I graduate on May 27th, and I am leaving for Ole Miss the next day."
What was Ole Miss' reaction when they received the news?
"Coach Orgeron just started screaming Hotty Toddy at me. They got everybody on the staff to tell me congrats. Everybody was just pumped."
Powe was rated as one of the Top 10 prospects in the country coming out of high school and prep school.
He will have 5 years to play 4 at Ole Miss.
