Summer Showcase

Ole Miss held its final, and possibly most successful, camp of the summer Saturday, with over 400 prospective student-athletes in attendance for Ole Miss' one-day only camp for 2011 seniors.

Recruits made their way inside the indoor practice facility throughout the morning hours, before taking part in position and one-on-one drills.

Skill players, made up of wide receivers, running backs and quarterbacks, remained inside, while offensive and defensive linemen made the short journey over to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

Among those who participated included current Ole Miss commitment Mitch Hall. And while he logged his 40-yard dash and vertical jump, his primary focus Saturday was playing the part of recruiter. Hall kept close with three-star offensive guard Justin Bell and three-star offensive tackle Aaron Morris.

"I'm just going to help," he said. "Anything (other recruits) need to know about (Ole Miss offensive line) Coach (Mike) Markuson or (head) Coach (Houston) Nutt, I'll tell them whatever they need and hopefully push along the way."

Miller: "I feel at home"

Earlier in the week, long before he stepped foot on campus Saturday, quarterback Maikhail Miller had been leaning towards ending his recruitment by committing to Ole Miss.

The plan was to announce his decision sometime during or after camp. Ole Miss had been Miller's clear favorite since he received an offer in the baby stages of the process. The 6-foot-2, 235-pound quarterback had already made the drive to Oxford from his home in Fulton once this summer.

However, after careful deliberation with his father Friday, Miller decided to hold off on pulling the trigger, though he still "feels at home" at Ole Miss.

"I just wanted to get to know (Ole Miss) better and learn the offense and what they want us to do when we get here," he said. "I've really seen everything, so really it's just getting to know them better."

Miller passed for over 2,000 yards with 20 touchdowns and five interceptions as a junior at Itawamba Agricultural High School. He also carried 40 times for over 500 yards and 10 touchdowns. He's rated a three-star prospect, according to

"I'm kind of a pro-style quarterback," Miller said. "I can throw it anywhere and run when I need to. I've got good arm strength and vision on the field."

Prewitt firmly committed

Unlike other prospects, those who drag out recruiting well after their senior seasons, Cody Prewitt knew in June where he wanted to attend college.

He was extended an offer at Ole Miss' elite camp in mid-June, where he ran an impressive 4.47 40-yard dash. Admittedly, he had dreamt of playing for Ole Miss growing up. So when he was finally given that chance, he couldn't turn it away.

A month later, Prewitt isn't wavering in his commitment. Ole Miss is the only school he's visited during the summer, and is the only school he plans to visit this fall.

"I like everything about (Ole Miss)," he said. "The whole atmosphere up here – the coaches, the campus, education – I just love it up here."

Prewitt, who rates a three-star defensive back, had over 1,000 receiving yards and 28 touchdowns for Sylva Bay Academy in Bay Springs. Along with Ole Miss, he's drawn interest from numerous schools, including Florida, Georgia, Mississippi State and Tennessee.

He's been to all three Ole Miss summer camps, but still used Saturday as a chance to familiarize himself with his soon-to-be surroundings.

"Today, I just came to get more used to everything up here, from the campus and everything," Prewitt said. "I planned to do a couple of drills, but that's about it."

Moncrief taking his time

Like Miller, Ole Miss remains a favorite for four-star wide receiver Donte Moncrief. So much so, rumors were flying over the course of the week of a possible commitment Saturday.

But Moncrief isn't ready to go public with any decision.

"Ole Miss really is No. 1 right now," he said. "Basically everybody is still the same, but Ole Miss is leading by a little bit."

Moncrief, who brought his entire family to camp, is one of many talented wide receivers Ole Miss is targeting. Four-star Nickolas Brassell of Batesville, three-star T.J. Worthy of Gadsden, Ala. and three-star Josh Pinkston of Forest are on Ole Miss' radar as well, and participated today.

Moncrief said come decision time, he'll choose the school that fits him best and "feels like home." He's also looking at playing time, as he hopes to see the field as early as his freshman season.

"I really don't know (when I'll make a decision)," Moncrief said. "I don't know if I'm going to wait it out or do it before the season starts."
