Robert Conyers, a 6'5" 277 lb. offensive tackle out of Miami, Florida, committed to Ole Miss on Saturday while on an unofficial visit. Conyers, a three-star recruit and top target of Matt Luke, had offers from 10 BCS schools (including Vanderbilt, Illinois, and Michigan State).
The commitment came on a day when Coach Freeze and his staff had decided to part ways with the previously committed Jake Meador, an offensive tackle that had recently softened on his commitment. It is believed that neither Meador nor the Ole Miss coaching staff were convinced that his skills matched up with Coach Freeze's offensive philosophy.
Conyers will return to Oxford for his official visit on January 27 with several other key recruits, a visit in which he could help influence other top Ole Miss targets as they take their final visit before National Signing Day.
