The Rebels have a top-25 class right now, per my board, and it's a good 20-man class. Yet, the buzz about Ole Miss' recruiting surrounds who they're expected to land.
I don't know about you, but for me it's only a matter of time before Robert Nkemdiche commits to Ole Miss. Joining his brother and making his family happy are likely going to be the driving forces behind this.
In addition, S Antonio Conner has been an Ole Miss lean in my eyes for quite some time. WR Laquon Treadwell is another elite player that looks like a real possibility for Hugh Freeze.
I also list the Rebels as a dark horse in the Laremy Tunsil sweepstakes. If you want a program that is coming on strong on the trail right now, look at the crew in Oxford.
