Tre Nixon, a four-star burner of a wide receiver who committed to Ole Miss last week, tweeted that he's sent in his paperwork to the Rebels.

Nixon, who was named the 2015 Florida Class 7A Player of the Year after a 1,224-yard, 18-touchdown senior season, was among six prospects Hugh Freeze's staff hosted over the weekend. This comes a few days after he narrowed his finalists to a top three of Ole Miss, Auburn and Georgia. There's been no word yet whether he still plans to take his official to Auburn this weekend.

Of the major crootin services, Scout is the highest on Nixon, ranking him the 86th best overall player in the country and the 13th best wideout.

How does he fit?

The name of this guy's game is speed. Like, laser-timed-at-4.38-in-the-40 kinda speed. To put that in perspective, only six guys ran faster than that at last year's NFL combine.

Nixon seems like a strong redshirt possibility. For one, Ole Miss is loaded at the receiver position right now: Demore'ea Stringfellow, Quincy Adeboyejo, Markell Pack, Damarkus Lodge and Van Jefferson will head into camp on top of the depth chart. But Nixon will also need to spend some time bulking up his 170-pound frame and, judging from his tape below, spend time building out his route tree.

He sure as hell has the go-route down, though.
