To say this recruiting season has been difficult for quarterback Raymond Cotton would be an understatement.
After initially committing to Auburn, the 4-star signal caller decided to reopen his recruitment after the departure of head coach Tommy Tuberville.
"This was a process where he committed to Auburn early and decided to re-open his recruitment after they dismissed the staff he had committed to," added Raymond Cotton Sr, Raymond's father.
But now he's found a home with Ole Miss and head coach Houston Nutt.
Cotton comes by way of Ft. Meade, Maryland, but has family in Kosciusko. Raymond Sr. said he is very familiar with the Ole Miss campus.
"We use to go over there during the 80's," he said. "We are very familiar with the surroundings of that campus as well as the State of Mississippi."
Scout.com's #22 nationally ranked QB passed for over 2, 300 yards, rushed for another 700, and totaled 35 TD's this season. Cotton played in the Offense/Defense All-American bowl in January.
Raymond chose Ole Miss over Kansas State and USM.
