Hugh Freeze and Co. are bringing in a loaded group of official and unofficial visitors for the Magnolia Bowl.

Student Sports

Despite all the ups and downs of the 2015 season, Ole Miss still stands to haul in an impressive 2016 recruiting class. The Rebs are ranked as high as No. 4 nationally, with five-star Shea Patterson leading the way and four-stars like wide receiver DeKaylin Metcalf, athlete Justin Connor and offensive lineman Bryce Mathews right behind him.

While Ole Miss will be searching for its eighth win of the season this weekend against LSU, Hugh Freeze and his staff will also be searching for a win on the crootin trail. This the biggest visit weekend of the season, with no less than three blue chip prospects on their way to Oxford.

Defensive tackle Rashan Gary and linebacker Mique Juarez are rated as five-star prospects by Scout.com. Both are instant impact guys who would likely start or get plenty of early playing time for Ole Miss next season. Another connection is Juarez was teammates with quarterback commit Shea Patterson at Nike's The Opening and Gary is good friends with five-star offensive lineman Greg Little, who's rumored to be leaning towards Ole Miss.

Current Rebel commit Benito Jones, a defensive tackle who's rated a five-star by ESPN, will also be in town.

Here is the list of both official and unofficial visits for Saturday, according to Scout.com.
