Ole Miss looking to finish strong as signing day awaits

Posted on Jan 29 2014 - 8:59am by David Collier

College football’s national signing day is a week away, and Ole Miss is looking to put the finishing touches on its 2014 signing class. Five-star wide receiver Malachi Dupre is the latest visitor to make his way to Oxford for an official visit.

Dupre, who is ranked as the No. 1 wide receiver in the country by ESPN, said on his Twitter that he arrived in Oxford Monday, Jan. 27. The 6-foot-4, 175-pound wideout is a River Ridge, La., native.

Dupre is one of 23 prospects who have visited the Rebels since this past Friday, according to Scout.com.  Most of those visitors were part of Ole Miss’s 24 existing commitments who reaffirmed their commitments.

Over the weekend, the Rebels got a commitment from offensive lineman Sean Rawlings, who is a three-star prospect by the four major recruiting services. Rawlings is a Madison native from Madison-Ridgeland Academy.

With just a few spots left in the recruiting class, Ole Miss’ list of potential candidates has dwindled significantly.

Several uncommitted three-star prospects were in town, including cornerback Terrence Alexander, running back D.J. Law, wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie, defensive tackle Michael Sawyers and offensive lineman Jordan Sims.

National signing day is Feb. 5.
