What is going on with the N' West CC players?
"I spoke with Coach Hughes this week," added Demareo Marr. He came by Monday to talk to me, Daniel Thomas, Alonzo Horton, and Patrick Trahan."
What did Coach Hughes say?
"He told me about how everything was going with the coaching changes and that he still wanted me to come to Ole Miss. Coach Hughes said there is a possibility that he will coach the defensive backs and that I would be one of his number one guys."
What did Marr say back?
"I told him that Ole Miss is still #1 on my list, and he told me that it was 100% I was going to Ole Miss. Coach Hughes said that he knew Coach Nutt was going to like my film. They looked at my transcript and saw that I could get out in May. They were happy about that because they said it was important I could be there for both summer sessions so I could start learning their defense."
What is going on with his teammates, Patrick, Daniel, and Horton?
"I think Daniel is pretty much in the air. I mean, he is still committed to Ole Miss, but it could go either way. Everyday somebody new comes in and offers him. If a D1 school comes in here, they end up offering him. He already has offers from Oklahoma, Louisville, Kansas State, Ole Miss, UAB, and Troy."
Any one particular school the Rebs need to worry about with Daniel Thomas?
"I know Kansas State is on him real hard. They came to the school like two or three times this week alone. Everytime we are talking, one of their coaches calls. Like I said, he is still committed to Ole Miss, but it could go either way. He is still taking his visits."
What about Alonzo Horton?
"He is pretty solid on not going to Ole Miss. With the coaching change and all, it was just too much. Coaches Wilson and Orgeron were from New Orleans, so he had that connection. That was really the only reason he was going over there."
And Patrick Trahan?
"He does not really say much about Ole Miss, but some people say he is going back to Auburn and others say he is going to LSU."
When did LSU come into the picture?
"They came down like a month ago and they started talking. He has been talking a lot with them. He told me he might go to LSU, and I think Alonzo is between Kansas State and Memphis. Kansas State offered him this week. They are trying real hard to get both Daniel and Alonzo. I would love to have all of them with me at Ole Miss. You know Brandon Green committed (to Ole Miss) a couple of days ago. If all five of us were to sign with Ole Miss, that would probably set some kind of record. I have been talking to some other schools but it is not like Ole Miss. Memphis, Marshall, La Tech, and Kansas State has been calling lately, but I am going to Ole Miss."
Any new offers?
"It is still just Ole Miss, Memphis, and UAB. I am still taking an official visit to La Tech and Memphis in January. Marshall wants me to come in for an official visit in January too. Troy said they would wait on me all the way through the second summer session if they had to. They want me pretty badly. I told all of them that I am going to Ole Miss, and they said to just come in and check it out. I told them that was fine, but you are just wasting your time."
