Quinn Sanford makes it a trifecta

Quinn Sanford (OL, South Panola, MS) - The 6' 3", 295 pound offensive guard out of South Panola gave Ole Miss its third verbal commitment today.

"Yea, we decided to come over to Ole Miss," added Quinn Sanford.

The "we" reference includes two other teammates.

"Me, Tig (Darius Barksdale) and Bud (Bud Barksdale) all committed today."

Did the fact that Sanford had two of his teammates going to Ole Miss with him help make his decision easier?

"Yea, but I would have gone over there anyway. All my cousins play for Ole Miss. John Jerry, Peria Jerry, Jamarca Sanford, Chris Strong, just all of my kins. It is going to be like one big family over there."

MSU actually held the lead for Quinn's services until recently.

"They just were not talking my language like Ole Miss. See at first, I was not thinking about committing to Ole Miss, but then they talked to me good during my visit, and I really like their campus. I can just see myself playing with all of my cousins."

The Ole Miss staff was also a selling point for Sanford.

"Coaches Hughes, Orgeron, and Kehoe; we are all tight. I like all of them. They are like one of my buddies, not like a coach. They just have so much energy up there."

That energy came out when Sanford informed Coach Orgeron of his decision.

"They just started hollering and stuff. All of that energy came out. Coach Orgeron asked me if I was ready to strap it on and put my Rebel pads on. I said lets go."

And what would be Quinn's message to the Ole Miss family?

"Hotty Toddy, I am on my way."
