    The Ole Miss Rebels have a chance to finish off the 2013 recruiting cycle with one of the best classes in the nation.

    Hugh Freeze and his program are in the running for some of the nation's best recruits, and at this point there's no doubting the fact that the Rebels are a legitimate power on the recruiting trail.

    The future of Ole Miss football is bright, and that future starts with this 2013 recruiting class.

He has very good size for a quarterback at 6'4'', 205 pounds and is ranked as the No. 5 player from the state (per 247Sports).
