Rory Johnson passes!

One of Ole Miss' biggest weaknesses on the team, weakside linebacker, just got a whole lot stronger when Mississippi's '05 Juco Defensive Player of the Year received a passing grade this morning.

" Me and my mother logged on this morning to see if my grade was in and it came up, and I made it. My mother jumped higher than I did," stated an elated Rory Johnson.

"This is just the greatest day in my life. I mean, I have worked so hard to get to this point. Nobody thought I was going to do it, and I did it. It just feels so good. I give all thanks to the Lord above. He has truly watched over me and blessed me and my family."

When will Rory arrive at Ole Miss?

"I have had my bags packed and ready to go. I have been so anxious to get up there. All of our paperwork is done. We now have to wait to get cleared by Ole Miss, but they said that will be no problem. They said that should be done in a day or so. I am just ready to get out there on the playing field. I want to earn my spot."
