The move took a little adjusting, but Chris' talent has overcome the adjustment period and has earned the starting nod at defensive end.
"Chris won the job and will be starting at defensive end," added Scout.com's national recruiting analyst, Scott Kenneddy.
"I think it took him a couple of days to learn the new position but his talent is obvious and he has really been controlling the line of scrimmage the last couple of practices. Ole Miss is getting themselves quite a player."
