Players to watch:

DE Jason Carr
6-foot-6, 280 pounds — Memphis, Tenn. — White Station HS 4 stars 3 stars
A current Tennessee commitment, Jason Carr has the versatility to play at defensive end or move inside to play tackle, thanks to his 6-foot-6, 280-pound frame. Carr’s status with the Volunteers appears to be up in the air, as he waits to see whom Tennessee hires to replace recently fired Derek Dooley. The Rebels appear to have put themselves in good shape with Carr if the Memphis product opens his recruitment up.

S Antonio Conner
6-foot-2, 200 pounds — Batesville, Miss. — South Panola HS 4 stars 5 stars
The top player at perennial powerhouse South Panola High School, Conner is in high demand and has sports offers from Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Texas A&M and many others. It is expected that the 6-foot-2, 200-pound safety will take most, if not all, of his five allotted official visits, but as with most South Panola products, the Rebels look to be in good shape for Mississippi’s top player.

RB Kailo Moore
5-foot-10, 180 pounds — Rosedale, Miss. — West Bolivar HS 4 stars 4 stars
The 5-foot-10, 180-pound running back has elite speed and is said to be one of the faster players in the Southeast. A former Ole Miss commitment, Moore decommitted with the coaching staff change and is currently a verbal commitment to Mississippi State. He has visited Ole Miss a few times, and there’s a chance that Moore could end up on Ole Miss’ signing day list.

DE Robert Nkemdiche
6-foot-5, 260 pounds — Loganville, Ga. — Grayson HS 5 star 5 star
Nkemdiche is considered by all services to be the consensus top player in the country for the 2013 class. He is, of course, the brother of Ole Miss redshirt freshman linebacker Denzel Nkemdiche, and the bond between the brothers has Ole Miss in good shape for the younger Nkemdiche. A longtime Clemson commitment, Robert decommitted a few weeks ago and could potentially announce a new commitment in the coming weeks, according to his brother.

WR Laquon Treadwell
6-foot-3, 190 pounds — Crete, Ill. — Crete-Monee HS 4 stars 4 stars
The top receiver in the country for the class of 2013 according to Rivals, Treadwell isn’t from a typical Ole Miss recruiting area, but the Rebels have managed to work their way into Treadwell’s top group. Treadwell has listed a top five in order of Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Oklahoma State, Michigan and Michigan State. The Rebels envision placing Treadwell opposite of sophomore wide receiver Donte Moncrief to form a potentially dangerous duo at the receiver spot.
