Welcome back to yet another year of fax machines and Cricket Wireless flip phones.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year again! For the majority of Wednesday morning and afternoon, high school students will enrage the Twitter masses with the simple stroke of a ballpoint pen as they commit to their favorite athletic program (out of the goodness of their heart and love of the game, no doubt).
To help you sift through the insanity that is National Signing Day, we’ve set up this post to track who’s signing where and who’s still up for grabs. Below, you’ll see five lists: 1) recruits who have signed letters of intent with Ole Miss on Wednesday, 2) recruits who have committed to the Rebs, 3) targets who remain uncommitted, 4) recruits who have committed or signed with other schools and 5) the 12 guys who signed with Ole Miss during the early signing period back in December.
We’ll be moving guys from list to list throughout the day as updates come in.
So for example: a guy might start in the targets list, then get moved to the committed to Ole Miss list after his announcement ceremony, then get moved to the signed with Ole Miss list after his LOI comes in.
Got it? Good.
This list consists of the most realistic names left on the board for the Rebels.
- 5-star RB Zachary Evans
