In another new series this season, we will be keeping you all in the loop with any and every recruit making their way to Oxford, Miss. for Rebel home games. Each week, we will pass along a list that has been compiled of who is expected to make the trek to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium to take in a home contest.

After a good showing and a tough loss in Tuscaloosa, Ole Miss returns home to the friendly confines of VHS to host the Vanderbilt Commodores on the 30th anniversary of the Chucky Mullins Game. The Rebels are looking to get back to .500 on the year and snag a conference win while they’re at it.

This week, again, we have a mixed list of attendees ranging from current 2020 commitments, 2021 targets, and 2020 prospects committed elsewhere. We will post their 247Sports profiles so if you would like to learn more about each prospect, simply click on their embedded profile in this here article and it will take you to their respective recruiting profiles housed at the aforementioned recruiting web site.

Week four expected visitor list (in alphabetical order)

Obviously the names that jump off the list are Oxford (Miss.) tight end Jeremiah Pegues and Mississippi State commits Emmanuel Forbes and Dillon Jonson. Forbes, the four-star cornerback from Grenada (Miss.), has been committed to State for some time but has continued to stay in contact with the Rebels. Johnson, the four-star athlete from Greenville (Miss.), has still continued talking with the Ole Miss staff despite Matt Luke and Co. wanting him to play defensive back and he wanting to play running back at the next level.

Pegues, who released a top three this week of Alabama, Auburn, and Ole Miss, is arguably one of Ole Miss’ top remaining targets and with Octavious Cooley and Jason Pellerin vacating the tight end room after 2019, Pegues could step right in in 2020 and make a difference in Rich Rodriguez’s offense.

Forbes is a must get for the Rebs. He is an instant impact corner and we all know that Ole Miss needs help in the secondary. Johnson on the other hand doesn’t want to make the switch to safety, but he is an elite athlete that would serve the Rebels well in the back third.

Pennington, a humongous 2021 offensive/defensive lineman from Cordova (Tenn.), already has early offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, and LSU will be in town for the first time since attending camp in May. He is certainly a major target moving forward for next year’s class.


Stay locked in here for any changes or additions throughout the weekend because remember y’all...

Recruiting never stops.
