RB #38
Tig Barksdale
Darius Barksdale (RB/S, South Panola, MS) - Darius, who goes by "Tig", broke the all time rushing record in a season for South Panola that was set by Kevin Jones in 1996. He aso broke the Mississippi 5A state rushing record in a season with over 2, 900 yards and 33 TD's despite missing two games.

Rated the #2 safety in the country by Scout.com.











OG #75
Quinn Sanford
**The Tigers are loaded on the offensive line. As many as five of their linemen have a chance to play on the D1 level some day, but the man who keeps the engine rolling is there do it all utility man, Quinn Sanford.

The 6' 1", 295 pound three year starter has played anywhere from tight end, center, guard, and tackle. Quinn has the footwork to handle any position on the offensive line and the tenacity to run block as well as he pass blocks.

Reports have already come out that Quinn is having the best camp out of any of the Mississippi offensive linemen.







DT #72
Bo Tillman
Bo Tillman, the younger brother of Marcus Tillman who has not actually committed to Ole Miss yet but is believed to be a heavy lean, has been a monster as usual this year as he collected 89 tackles, 11 sacks, 1 int, 3 forced fumbles, and 2 recoveries.













DE #80
Josh Tillman
**While Bo receives most of the pub, it is his 1st cousin and best friend, Josh Tillman, who keeps putting up all the numbers. After collected 18 sacks as a a junior, the 6' 5", 255 pound defensive end has put up another monster year with 94 tackles, 18 sacks, 1 int for a TD, 6 forced fumbles, and 5 recovered fumbles.

You think Ole Miss is drooling to get these two defensive linemen in the mix?









DT #76
Willie Packer

Willie Packer could arguable be the top defensive linemen in Mississippi this year. Packer has gained 25 pounds since the end of his junior season which has given him the needed strength and girth to become a monster on the line. Quinn Sanford said the 6' 2", 275 pounder is the best defensive lineman he has seen at the camp.

Packer helped his team to a 12-2 record and finished the season with 82 tackles, 21 for losses, 7 forced fumbles, and 18 qb hurries.







DE #54
Josh Chestang

Josh Chestang was the glue for the Tiger's defense this season as he led them in tackles with 96.

The 5' 11", 205 pounder will play linebacker for the Mississippi squad tonight but played defensive end for Moss Point.











CB #10
Derrick Herman

The 5' 11", 180 pound cornerback was named the 2007 Region 2-4A Offensive Player of the Year after compoeting 80-of-190 passes for 1,132 yards and 12 touchdowns while rushing for another 1,316 yards and 9 touchdowns on 142 carries.













LB #44
Marlon Walls
The Memphis Touchdown 2007 Player of the Year was a high impact transfer for Olive Branch as he finished the season with 128 tackles, 32 hurries, 10 sacks, and 7 forced fumbles.












OG #79
Josh Tatum

The 6' 6", 330 pound offensive limenan out of Marbury (AL) is technically still considered an Arkansas commit but he will change over to Ole Miss when coach Markenson arrives










Non-committed Ole Miss recruits

CB #32
Alonzo Lawrence

**The 6' 0", 180 pouund CB/WR has been dominant during the practices this week and could be the most explosive player on the squad.

Alonzo Lawrence finished the season with 32 catches for 807 yards receiving and 8 TD's. He also retutned 5 kickoffs/punts for TD's and chipped in 87 tackles, 2 int's for TD's, and 3 sacks at cornerback.









S #34
Charles Mitchell

Mississippi's Gatarode Player of the Year this season has reportedly been a difference maker for the Magnolia's squad this week.

Charles will line up at cornerback and safety during the game tonight.

The 5' 11", 190 pound soon to be defensive back is a three year starter for the Wildcat.








WR #84 DeAndre Brown

This freak of nature (6' 6", 220 and ran a legit 4.52 at scout combine) was a huge impact this season as he finished the season with over 1, 600 yards of offense and 15 TD's.

It is not coincendence that Brown is Mississippi's most sought after prospect as Scout.com ranks Brown as the #3 WR in the country.









#46
Kendrick Presley

Kendrick Presley out of Kosciusko is a 6' 1", 195 pound safety that has been highly productive during practices this week and is being watched very closely by Ole Miss.

Presley led his team to the North Half finals and finished the season with over a 1, 000 yards rushing and passing despite playing the majority of the season with a dislocated big toe.








#78
Terrance Pope

Terrance Pope was a terror for South Panola's defense all season as he finished the season with 57 tackles, 14 sacks, and 5 forced fumbles. He is also being watched very closely by the Rebels.











#74
Andre Wadley

Andre Wadley is a 6' 2", 270 pound projected defensive tackle that will play defensive end for the Mississippi squad. He is highly coveted by MSU, Auburn, and Ole Miss. Tennessee is also trying to get into the picture.
