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.
The Ole Miss Rebels are back home for their Vaught-Hemingway Stadium finale against the No. 1-ranked LSU Tigers. And once again, the manifest is stacked with big-time targets and commits for 2020 and 2021, per Rebel Grove publisher Neal McCready.
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.
I will offer my opinion on the targets below that, per sourcing, I believe to be their current situation on the recruiting trail as it stands today.
Week four expected visitor list
BONUS BASKETBALL RECRUIT
- The 2021 guard from Memphis is classmates with Ole Miss commit Jabari Small and major target Omari Thomas and he’s also tight with 2020 basketball signee Matthew Murrell. Kermit Davis and his staff are coming after the five-star hard and are utilizing being his first major Power 5 offer to their advantage. And now that Memphis is in a bit of turmoil with the James Wiseman saga, it might be open season in the Bluff City for some highly-ranked dudes.
- Branch has been committed to the Canes for a while now, but he has visited Oxford several times and could be on flip watch.
- The Rebels continue to battle for Grimes with Alabama, South Carolina, and Tennessee. The Gamecocks have been the perceived leader for a while now, but with Will Muschamp’s seat heating up, it could change.
- Lawrence is close with Ole Miss commits De’Arre McDonald and Jabari Small and Tyrone Nix has recruited him non-stop for almost three years now. Getting him on campus is huge.
- Now that Grant Tisdale is gone and Matt Corral could potentially be out the door as well, the Rebels are looking to take another quarterback. And if Rich Rodriguez’s offense (regardless of what you think about it) is what Ole Miss is doing, Holiday is a perfect fit.
- It’s Auburn and Ole Miss. Rinse and repeat. He will visit the Ole Miss campus for the 1,586th time this weekend.
- Ole Miss has turned up the heat on the MUS lineman. My sourcing says that Henderson is being recruited as a defensive lineman and he is listening. LSU is the leader right now so this weekend could be huge in showcasing the opportunity to play.
- It’s long-been rumored that Forbes is wanting to flip to Ole Miss and it’s a matter of when not if. We’ll see. He, too, has visited Oxford quite a bit despite his commitment to the Bulldogs.
- Small’s high school teammate is a top target for 2020 and it appears that it’s down to Ole Miss and Tennessee since Arkansas has fired everyone. I still think the Rebels get him, but the Vols are coming after him hard.
- Here’s the deal, Hayes decommitted so he can take official visits to other schools. I believe he will still end up in Ole Miss’ 2020 class.
- Keep an eye on Mr. Williams. The staff really likes him.
- The above three names are arguably the top targets for receivers coach Jacob Peeler in 2021. Wright has already committed, Smith is committed to State, and Harmon is most likely going to be the top recruit in the state next year. The nWo needs a reload and these three would be a fantastic start.
- Colson is a big-time target for 2021 that Tyrone Nix has been working hard. His Middle Tennessee connections have already paid dividends with McDonald’s commitment, could he do it again next cycle for a blue chip linebacker?
- The 2022 target has a long way to go in this recruiting thing, but he already has major offers from Alabama and LSU.
McCready is also reporting that the following 2020 Ole Miss commitments will also be in town this weekend:
- Kris Draine
- Eli Acker
- Kahlil Benson
- Jakivuan Brown
- Kentrel Bullock
- An’Darius Coffey
- Lakevias Daniel
- Daylen Gill
- Jaycob Horn
