"My coach took me over there Saturday," added Kaleb
Eulls. "Man, Ole Miss, I love that school. People around here talk
bad about Ole Miss, but the school is amazing. It is big, but everything is
close together. You can get everywhere quickly."
What was the word around town about Ole Miss?
"Well, you have to understand, it really is coming from the MSU fans around here. You know they are big rivals. It gets like that between rivals. It is like us against Yazoo City. We dog them and they dog us out. We are rivals."
What new did Eulls learn about Ole Miss?
"I learned that their coaches are more friendly than I even thought. I also had a chance to talk to Coach Nutt, and he is more energetic than I thought. He is a very excitable person."
Outside of the misperception Kaleb had about Ole Miss before he arrived, what surprised him the most?
Kaleb toured the facilities, grabbed some lunch, and then he headed over to the practice field for the scrimmage.
"The one thing I learned by standing on the sidelines and watching them scrimmage is that their players are great guys. If someone does something bad, they keep each other going. They have a great comradeship. And the thing that I learned about the coaches is how much love they have for their players. I could also see how competitive they are with their players by how they were coaching them. When someone did something wrong, the coaches started teaching them what they did wrong, instead of yelling and screaming at them. That really impressed me."
What about the overall environment at Ole Miss?
"I learned it is a great environment. It speaks for itself. The students, faculty, staff, and players. They do not have to sell that Ole Miss is a great place to be. All you have to do is watch them to see what it is all about. Ole Miss speaks for itself. That is the best way I can put it."
Where do the Rebels now stand?
"This puts them under serious consideration for me. This bumps them up in my Top 3 or 4 colleges. Before I took my visit, they were like at the end of my list, but now they are up there at the top with a couple of others."
Who else is at the top of the pecking order?
"USM, MSU, and Alabama."
Where does Kaleb visit next?
"I am going to LSU for their Spring game on April 18th."
