Bayou TE solidifies commitment with Ole Miss

David Rue (TE, Monroe, LA) - The 6' 6", 250 pound Richwood product had been wavering with his commitment to the Rebels earlier but that looks to be a thing in the past.


"I feel more solid about my decision now," added David Rue.

What changed his mind?

"Nothing particular. I just sat down with my family and went over the pluses and minuses, and I really could not find any minuses. Ole Miss is going to be really good for the next few years, and they need some help at tight end. They are losing one to graduation and Robert (Lane) is moving to fullback. It is wide open for me, and besides, I feel real comfortable with the Ole Miss staff."

Rue had been hearing from Clemson, as the Tigers offered David early in the recruiting process. Will he take an official visit with the Tigers?

"Probably not. I am pretty set on Ole Miss now."

David helped Richwood win their second round contest by the score of 53-12. They face Rayville in the third round Friday.

"We are really playing together now. We are peaking at the right time. I think we have a real good chance to win this thing."

What do Rue's current stats look like?

"They are getting better and better. I have 7 touchdowns on the season."

When will David take his official visit to Ole Miss?

"I am going from December 1-3."
