Three-star offensive lineman Brady Ward had plenty of opportunities to go somewhere with his bevy of offers, but it ultimately came down to him wanting to stick with a relationship he had made with Randy Clements and he ultimately picked the Rebels.
Despite the offer sheet containing the likes of Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, Iowa, LSU, Miami, Mississippi State, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Oregon among others, Ward elected to enroll at Ole Miss and take Lane Kiffin’s grayshirt offer.
The St. Paul’s product is going to take classes this summer and will eventually count towards the scholarship count in December.
How does he fit in?
The 6’7, 310-pounder might be somewhat of a project for now, but the frame and ability is there to work with. He was chosen as a All-American Game participant for a reason and should be able to learn and develop under the tutelage of Clements. He has long arms and is listed as 6’7, both things you cannot teach.
He still needs a little fine-tuning with his technique and hand positioning, but he has plenty of upside and potential to access.
