Gerald Harris
Gerald Harris (TE, Navarro College, TX) - The 6' 5", 250 pound tight end was highly sought after late in the recruiting process with schools like Ole Miss, Miami, UConn, Utah, and Louisville all offering but he decided on the Rebels late Tuesday night.

"Me and my parents signed the papers this morning and sent in the letter of intent. We are going to have a press conference this afternoon to celebrate it. I just can not wait to get over there in January and start helping out their team. It is like a brick wall has been lifted off of my back. This feels great."

Emmanuel Stephens
Emmanuel Stephens (DE, Blinn College, TN) - The Houston native had 72 tackles, 20 1/2 sacks, 9 forced fumbles, and 3 interceptions in his two year career at Blinn College.

Stephens was one of two defensive ends nationally to be named to the 2007 1st Team NJCAA All-American team.

"I just sent in my papers a few minutes ago," stated a proud Emmanuel Stephens. "I am officially an Ole Miss Rebel."

Emmanuel has one goal in mind before he heads to Ole Miss.

"I need to gain around 5 pounds. I should not have a problem doing that during the christmas break. My momma is going to get me good during the holidays. I just can not wait to get over there on January 5th. I called Greg Hardy just a few minutes ago. I told him he is going to have to share some of those sacks with me (laugh). He said he is not sharing anything. I told him that's fine, because I am going to have more than him anyway (laugh). We think we are going to be the best bookends in the country. It is going to be a lot of fun." Stephens was a 1st Team NJCAA All-American this season.

Brandon Green
Brandon Green (OC, N' West CC, MS) - The former Southaven center was a two year starter for N' West CC and made 1st Team Academic All-American following his sophomore campaign.

"It is official," added Brandon Green. "I signed my LOI with Ole Miss and sent in my papers.

The 6' 2 1/2", 315 pound center will have 3 1/2 to play 2 at Ole Miss.
