Ole Miss recruiting: Who came to the LSU game?

Despite losing to the LSU Tigers, recruits made the trek from all points of the Southeast last weekend to take in the 2017 edition of the Magnolia Bowl. And this was a particularly unique setting because this is the very first time that the Rebels have hosted any official visitors at a game this year. Until this past weekend, recruits were coming on their own and sitting in the stands to take in a game at The Vaught.

Last weekend though, recruits were able to experience a game day atmosphere in Oxford, talk with fellow recruits, interact with current players and coaches, and see what all the fuss is about with The Grove. It was an impressive turnout for sure, especially because Ole Miss is almost certainly going to be fielding a brand new staff next year and are still awaiting their “punishment” from the NCAA’s COI.
