This past February, we see Ole Miss bring in a recruiting class for the ages. With players like Robert Nkemdiche, Laquon Treadwell, Laremy Tunsil and Antonio Conner, much is expected from the Rebels' 2013 haul. Only time will tell if the class is as good as advertised, but it does have a lot of hype coming to Oxford.
Hype is something that comes with a lot of recruiting classes and it is not always a good thing. We tend to forget on NSD that these are still just young 17- to 18-year-old players—they are merely kids who still have a lot of physical and mental maturation to achieve.
