UPDATE: Shortly after this post, D.K. Metcalf broke his foot because of course. He’ll take a medical redshirt and sit the rest of the season.
The supposition among those that follow Ole Miss football was that if a true freshman was to break out this season, it would be Starkville native (yea, we’re gonna keep rubbing that in Dan Mullen’s face) A.J. Brown. But a game and a half into the season, it’s four-star Oxford native D.K. Metcalf who’s stealing the show.
D.K., who’s a 6’4, 217-pound red zone nightmare, just did this in the second quarter against Wofford:
That’s comes five days after he hauled in this touchdown against Florida State.
Congrats to 2015 #TheOpening alumni @dkmetcalf14 on his first of many collegiate touchdowns! #HottyToddy https://t.co/Y5OTJiVAHl— The Opening (@TheOpening) September 6, 2016
As if you needed any more reason to like this dude, check out the snapchat he sent to his dad (who happens to be former Ole Miss O-lineman Terrance Metcalf):
Only God know the joy this brings!!! pic.twitter.com/TxxX25h3iF— Terrence O. Metcalf (@Metcalf79) September 6, 2016
