Rebel QB Bo Wallace is looking for a few good tight ends.
With TEs Ferbia Allen and Jamal Mosley having graduated, the cupboard is empty for the Rebels.
However, Hugh Freeze was well aware of the vacancy coming at tight end as he pieced together his 2013 recruiting class. Within the stellar class, he signed three tight ends: Evan Engram, A.J. Jackson and Christian Morgan. The head Rebel met his needs, but the experience obviously isn't there yet.
While Morgan, a mid-year enrollee, has looked capable in practice this spring, it's simply going to take time for the true freshman to adjust prior to the fall. This summer, Engram and Jackson will join forces with Morgan at tight end, but they too will be walking into an entirely new atmosphere.
Who could possibly step up for the Rebels and assist the freshman this year?
Enter 6'3'', 237-pound senior TE Jack Nuismer.
The nephew of country singer Vince Gill and three-time SEC Fall Academic Honor Roll recipient, Nuismer actually graduated from Ole Miss this past December. This spring, he's vying for a shot to finally find playing time for the Rebels.
With reserve TE John Youngblood having been moved to the defensive line, Nuismer has given Ole Miss a veteran option at tight end. While he doesn't have any game experience, Nuismer is a smart kid who has had a year to learn Freeze's offense. It should benefit him greatly as he works for a starting job.
Along with RB Darryan Ragsdale, Nuismer is quickly making a name for himself in Oxford.
