2015 TE Willie Hibbler and 2016 RB Justin Conner Commit

Kelly Lambert

The Rebels picked up commitments from a pair of young players from North Panola yesterday.

Continuing along with the recruiting momentum we've all come to expect from Hugh Freeze, the Rebels added commitments from Willie Hibbler (who is rated as the #9 athlete in the country by 247Sports.com and the #6 tight end nationally by scout.com) and Justin Conner (who is unranked due to his age). Hibbler is 6'5" 220 as a rising junior. Conner is 5'10" 190 entering his sophomore year.

247Sports.com's Recruiting Analyst, Barton Simmons had this to say about the commitments:

Willie Hibbler is a rising junior. As a sophomore, he was the starting quarterback for North Panola. Here's hudl video of his play at that position (a position at which he is not expected to play at Ole Miss). There are also some highlights of his time at wide receiver.

Here's some highlight film of Justin Conner. Remember that you're watching a rising SOPHOMORE.

It's tough to project too much this far out. Both commitments look to be in good shape physically and are touted as big-time prospects. The 2015 class in Mississippi appears to be a particularly strong one, with Hibbler as the fourth overall player in the state according to 247Sports. That year will be a chance for the Rebels to continue to strengthen the roster.
