Ole Miss scores big on National Signing Day

Posted: Updated:

It's Christmas in February for College Coaches around the Nation.

National Signing Day shows who's been Nifty in getting the Top High School Stars under their Tree, and almost nobody doing better than the Ole Miss Rebels.

Head Coach Hugh Freeze pulling off the Recruiting coup of the season in getting the Nation's Number One Prospect, Linebacker Robert Nkemdiche of Atlanta, to sign with the Rebels.

Nkemdiche originally committed to Clemson last year, then backed off that and narrowed his picks down to LSU, Florida and Mississippi.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A couple hours later when Laremy Tunsil, a top-rated offensive tackle from Lake City, Fla., picked the Rebels over Florida State and Georgia.

The Rebels also got a commitment from highly touted defensive back Antonio Conner from South Panola.  He chose the Rebels over national champion Alabama.

 Even Lebron James took notice of the Ole Miss recruiting class, tweeting, "Ole Miss ain't messing around today! Big time recruits coming in. SEC is crazy."
