Kellam receives good word from MRI and OM

The 5' 11", 185 pound star safety/receiver from Gulliver Prep had run into some back problems towards the middle of his season. Kellam missed the last three games of the regular season and the opener of the playoffs due to the sore back. Artice thought it was due to back spasms, but there was growing concern that it could be more serious.

This injury was also holding up his commitment to the Rebels, as he was told by Ole Miss that they needed to get the results back before making a final decision. Those results were returned to him last week and the news was good.

"It was just like what the doctors expected," added Artice Kellam. "It was just some back spasms. I was cleared to play, and I played in our last game. We won. We are playing in the championship game Saturday."

The news continued to get better for's #121 rated safety.

"I spoke with the Ole Miss coaches, and everything is good. They have accepted my commitment, so it's all good now. I am a Rebel. I already called South Carolina and South Florida to let them know I am going to Ole Miss. Me and Frank Crawford will be over there in January. Hopefully, we are going to continue our career together at Ole Miss. It looks good with him too."

Artice marks Ole Miss' 20th public commitment.
