"It was just a verbal, nothing official, when I committed to them earlier. I was going to wait until February 7th to make up mind. But they had been with me since last year, so I went ahead and committed," added Terry Mixon. "But I will probably not go there now because I do not know their new coaches and know what they are looking for. The old staff had faith in me, and the new one will not know anything about me, nor will I know anything about them. Heck, they might want to play me at CB, and I am a safety."

What got Terry interested
in Ole Miss?
"Coach Orgeron recruited a lot of my former teammates
when he was at USC. My high school head coach knows him real well. They are big
buddies. I know that Coach Orgeron has a desire to win and win big, which I know
he will do anywhere he goes. He is just so competitive. And plus, they play in
the SEC, the best conference in America, and they send a lot players to the pros.
I also like their history."
Anybody else in the picture?

main schools who have been calling me are Ole Miss, Washington, California, Tennessee,
Syracuse, and Arizona State."
