PostSubject: 2010 Ole Miss Recruiting   Sat 02 Jan 2010, 2:03 pm

The Rebels open the 4th Week With #3 SS Commitment

"I picked up my phone today to call SS prospect, Eric Gonzalez and before I could even get any words out he told me he made his decision that he will play for Ole Miss next year. He's a Canadian kid and I've got some unnofficial scouts stationed down there and the minute I saw film of this kid I knew we wanted him. He is an absolute MONSTER. He's a natural safety but he will certainly play linebacker for us and his pass coverage skills are going to be dominant. He will certainly help in the gap in our pass defence covering running backs," Coach Macc said.



ERIC GONZALES ****
Strong Safety (#3)
Barrie, Ontario
Barrie

Ht: 6'2
Wt: 208 .lbs
40: 4.54
GPA: 2.6

Scouting Report
On The Hoof - Eric's mixture of size and speed make him an ideal outside linebacker, despite being a natural safety. He doesn't have the speed to play safety at the NCAA level and his tenacity is what will put him in the linebacker position. He's tall and thick and has a meanstreak like none other.

Needs Improvement - Play Recognition. He tends to bite on playfakes far too often, he needs to keep the play in front of him and react when neccesary. He could work on getting off his blocks and overall awareness.

Most Impressive - Very explosive athlete with good speed and a high motor kid that won't quit. He's a big fish in small pond playing HS in Canada but he's proven on a consistent basis that he's the best player on the field at all times.

Reminiscent Of - Darren Sharper. He's got the wheels, he deflects passes and he can lay the hammer. This kid is a spitting image of the Saints safety.

Conclusion - It's a toss up whether or not Eric will serve as a redshirt. With a freshman ILB and the need to replace seniors in that position the Rebels may take a chance and start him come next fall. If this kid gets four years of starting experience he is going to be a MONSTER.

Rebels Sign Big Time Centre and JUCO Safety-Linebacker Hybrid.

"Were really excited early about our 2010 recruiting class. We think we're allready off to a huge success. I think last years group was directly focused on offence replacing some key elements and graduating seniors, well this year I think it was all about finding good athletes. We put an emphasis on the understanding that a lot of these kids in high school aren't positioned properly. We've signed another safety product, Phillip Ervin that we're confident will have a major role on our team next season. He's the answer for graduating MLB Jonathan Cornell's position and Jonathan's been a huge impact we feel on bringing this kid in. There's no question a lack of motivation in his studies through high school is the only reason he hasn't been a star in the NCAA. He's going to be a nightmare for teams to get their running backs involved in the passing game and he allready understands he'll have a huge responsibility next season. We've agreed as a coaching staff at Miss that we want to commemorate the biggest character player we've had the pleasure of coaching here, Jonathan's number 55 to the best linebacker fit to lead our team in the future. It was John's idea and pitch to seal the deal with Phillip. We've also been lucky enough to sign the countries best C prospect, Grady Lyles. Grady is an excellent pass blocker that will give our QBs tons of time in his match-ups. He's also a good run blocker," Coach Macc had to say.



PHILLIP ERVIN ****
FS (#2 FS)
Sandy Springs, Georgia
Rutland

Ht: 6'4
Wt: 216
40: 4.48
GPA: 3.1

Scouting Report
On The Hoof - He's an athletic machine and he looks like a rocked-up running back almost. He's got great height for the linebacker position and a thick solid build that won't shy away from tackling running backs. He's projected as a terrific pass defender and has the speed to keep up with the fastest running backs. He hits like a ton of bricks and is able to run ball carries down in the back field consistently.

Needs Improvement - Strength. He could certainly work on getting stronger but it's not going to be his strength that makes him a good player. He's going to be the linebacker that's got the speed to get to the ball regardless of what he has to do and his ability to throw the hammer he shouldn't have any problems getting out worked.

Most Impressive - Speed/Tackling. He is a monster with a motor running on all plays. He's got the linebacker mentality down pat and a real nutcase when in close games. He's a character player that runs off of aggression, good and bad. His overall skills are amazing for being at this level. He is a guarenteed starter next season.

Reminiscent Of - Shawne Merriman. Although nowhere near Merriman's size, Ervin's addiction to inflict pain is reminiscent of none other. He's the same character type but has quiet leadership qualities that you'd want out of your big time pass defender.

Conclusion - This kid is going to be a terrific Rebel. His paperwork continues to be processed while the Rebels wait to find out if he'll have two or three years eligible. Based off him coming out of Junior College the Rebels will get the most out of him if they start him immediately. He's too athletically talented not to play a lot.




GRADY LYLES *****
Center (#1 C)
Winchester, VA
Winchester

Ht: 6'0
Wt: 270 .lbs
40: 5.08
GPA: 2.7

Scouting Report
On The Hoof - Possesses a really solid frame that could easily hold more weight without losing his good athleticism. His short height allows him perfect pad level attack on the run block.

Needs Improvement - Pass Block Tecnique. He could really improve his chances to play early by improving his ability to keep DT's away from the QB. He has the size and the strength - those aren't issues. It's the little things like footwork drills and focus that he'll need to work hard on, if he wants playing time early.

Most Impressive - Run Blocking. This kid is about as good as you can hope for in run blocking at this age. He is tremendous at holding even the best run stuffers. His run block footwork is tremendous and he'll be a hole maker for the Rebels.

Conclusion - Grady possesses tremendous skill and the Rebels are going to be heavily dependant on him being a force within the coming years. He will enter spring camp as the #2 Center on their team behind only Rishaw Johnson. He will compete for starting time and he could very well win the job if he works hard enough. The Rebels could certainly benefit in the future if they have a 4 year starter at center. He will have the experience around him next year that will make the decision to start him - much easier.

Rebels Ink TWO BIG Time Recruits!

"Our recruiting class of 2010 has jumpstarted into one of the most impressive throughout the entire countries right now. This Rebels program is REALLY picking up and having no problem prove themselves to quite a few high profile high school athletes. We're receiving a terrific response from a lot of our commitments and I must admit these three commiting came as a big surprise. We stomped the Crimson Tide and stole some of their TOP high school athletes. We allready have a BRIGHT future on our offensive line adding key elements while signing Eric Brown. He comes from the brilliant Minor Academy over there where he's been involved in a terrific lineage of organized football. He is an absolute monster and will certainly play left for us and be a guy we're heavily relient on by his upperclass years. We've also found us a terrific defensive back recruit in FS Daniel Breedlove. He's another kid from Minor and great friends with Eric, which may be a good reason why he signed. Danny is projected a bit small for his natural FS position but his speed and man coverage skills are second to none and he'll play dimeback exclusively for us, possibly starting next year. We also received a big commitment from FS Phillip Ervin. Phillip is a monster at 6'4 216 he is far too big to be playing FS for us and he will be a great addition as either a OLB or MLB. His speed and versitility makes him a prime OLB candidate but his tacking skills make him seem more like a MLB right now. We can't be happier with our progress right now and we've got two big soft commitments so keep your eyes open next week! Go Rebels!"



ERIC BROWN *****
Offensive Tackle (#3 T)
Adamsville, Alabama
Minor

Ht: 6'5
Wt: 293 .lbs
40: 5.02
GPA: 2.5

Scouting Report
On The Hoof - Eric is built like a bear. If his physical stature isn't imposing, take one look into his helmet because this offensive tackle has the mindset of a linebacker. He has an extremely powerful base and lower half that any extra size will simply make him unstoppable.

Needs Improvement - Run Blocking. He is an excellent run blocker but if there's any SLIGHT (yes, I mean SLIGHT) flaw in his game it would be run blocking. He is going to be the clutch, relient tackle that won't give up a sack when in clutch moments and will gladly match-up with any teams best pass rusher.

Most Impressive - Pass Blocking. This kid simply won't allow ends or linebackers by him when in passing situations. With room for improvement, this kid is going to be a stud. He's all around extremely well sound.

Reminiscent Of - Tra Thomas. This kid really resembles the Jacksonville tackle and it wouldn't surprise us if he had a similar career.


Conclusion - The Rebels are very young and very talented at the tackle position. This kids abilities make him a prime candidate for a starting job and depending how the current O Line progresses and possibly elects early, there could be an opening. I look for Coach Macc to redshirt this kid, work on his game and send him out there ready when they'll need him.




DANIEL BREEDLOVE ****
Free Safety (#5 FS)

Adamsville, Alabama
Minor

Ht: 6'1
Wt: 188 .lbs
40: 4.44
GPA: 3.1

Scouting Report
On The Hoof - Tall, slim defensive back build with long arms and room to add more weight. Looks like the perfect size for a tough, physical cornerback.

Needs Improvement - Press. He isn't very strong on the press and his technique could use some work. He's not terrible but he'll have trouble with strong receivers in this league.

Most Impressive - Man Coverage Skills. Nobody in the country can cover like Breedlove. He's going to be one of the best at the college level when he enters campus in the spring. He is a shut-down guy that will be perfect for the Rebels system that uses lots of man coverage.

Reminiscent Of - Ty Law. He has all the coverage skills and the hands to make big plays. His speed is great but not lightning. He's a threat to run interceptions back almost any time.

Conclusion - This kid is a perfect fit for the Rebels system and they've stolen ANOTHER great Alabama product. He will be a very memorable corner by the end of his career if he keeps progressing like he's been.

Rebels Ink Two More Playmakers That Will Be Fighting For Starting Spots!

"As a coaching staff, we cannot believe the year we've gotten off to recruiting wise. I mean, there was almost NO interest in our school last year at this time and it's amazing what good, quality, sound, mistake free football can do for a program. It's obvious these kids have taken a notice to the Rebels because we inked two guys we feel, if needed could come into our program next year and be difference makers. We got a commitment from Virginia QB prospect - Shaun Chambers and Florida DE Dustin Larsen. Larsen will certainly add some depth to our defensive line with his amazing ability to do everything you'd expect out of a lineman, rush the passer, help in run situations... he will be a terrific addition to our squad. As for the QB, Shaun really wanted to go to Miss the minute we opened our recruiting doors this year. I've had conversations with his father whose been a Miss fan since the days of Archie Manning, so I assume we were helped out in that regard. Shaun is an outstanding athlete who is a diehard football player. This kids ability to run and throw is a perfect fit for us here at Miss and he will certainly take a year on the practice squad to get a feel for what we're doing here - which is more than fine by his father. Mark my words - Shaun will be a starter on this team at some point in his career. Depending on how he progresses - it could be sooner than later... he has all the ability in the world,"



SHAUN CHAMBERS ****
Quarterback (#5 QB)
Springfield, Virginia
Springfield

Ht: 6'2
Wt: 208 .lbs
40: 4.66
GPA: 3.5

Scouting Report
On The Hoof - Shaun's built like a tall running back, all rocked up and solid. He's very strong and very healthy looking. He will not need to gain or lose any weight. He is nearly the perfect size.

Needs Improvement - Ball Handling. For a guy who enjoys the carry the ball so much, he will have trouble at the college level with some of the more unforgiving linebackers. He needs to secure the ball and realize he plays the QB position - he's needed more to throw than to run. His stamina could be improved but he'll have plenty of time to work on it.

Most Impressive - Throwing Mechanics. Despite this kids ability to tuck it and run - he throws one of the nicest balls in the entire country. Shaun is by far, the most college-ready quarterback. His agility and ability to make guys miss is rediculous. He will be a great, efficient passing and running threat if he continues to improve at the rate he's been.

Reminiscent Of - Mike Vick. His ability to make defenders miss yet distribute a nice ball is reminiscent of none other. He's a bit unaware of the quarterback position, especially at the next level but his athletic ability to get it done when he's made the correct decision are reminiscent of none other. He may not be as fast, but he could have a better arm. He also very solid and with the ball in his hands he runs like a running back.

Conclusion - Shaun's a tremendous athlete and a huge pick up for the future of the Rebels. Shaun is the picture perfect, ideal quarterback for Macc's system. He could serve a purpose in MANY different aspects of the running game, depending whose around him by the time he's earned playing time - he could be at the helm of the Wildcat, giving them a legitimate option to pass the ball from that formation but just as much a threat to tuck it and run. He has unlimited potential. Direct future? He will be serving as a redshirt through Ray Cotton's junior year and his only starting competition will be in last years commitment Frank Larsen.



DUSTIN LARSEN ****
Defensive End (#5 DE)
Tamarac, Florida
Tamarac Private

Ht: 6'3
Wt: 249 .lbs
40: 4.78
GPA: 2.8

Scouting Report
On The Hoof - What you see is what you get - Dustin's built like the typical pass rushing defensive end.

Needs Improvement - Speed. He could work on his 4.7 speed if he wants to be the biggest, meanest player on the field at all times. His speed isn't a concern, his overall ability to do everything well really has no weakness within his game.

Most Impressive - Tackling. This kid gets ahold of you, look out. He's a ticking time bomb and a nightmare for any position player who plays behind the line of scrimmage. He wants to kill you on the field, and the majority of the time if he's unblocked - he will.

Conclusion - Dustin will almost defenitely start immediately as RE Kentrell Lockett is leaving for the NFL after this year. The Rebels aren't very deep in the DE department and the only way Dustin won't start is if they convert a linebacker to DE.

Rebels Sign 2 More Top 100 Players!!

"Well we came home from our game in Knoxville and the spirits were high. When I got to my office to prepare for Arkansas I was a bit side tracked this morning to find out we got two commitments from top 100 players, adding more to our depth in our recruiting class thus far. We signed California CB David Brown and Florida TE Mike Ross and we're very happy we received commitments from these two. David is a receivers nightmare matching up with 6'1 height, 4.38 speed and terrific acceleration. He's going to be a project for us to improve his ball and coverage skills, but we feel that once we've done that - he'll be a big time playmaker. We think he'll be our fastest corner next season so depending on how he progresses and our depth chart looks in the spring, he could be vying for playing time immediately. As for Mike, Mike's a big target and a receiving specialist TE. He's a steady blocker but will make his name catching the ball. He reminds us of Ferbia just a little bit taller and maybe a bit bigger of a target. He'll add some depth to our young TE corps,"



DAVID BROWN ****
Cornerback (#10 CB)
Upland, California
Upland

Ht: 6'1
Wt: 196 .lbs
40: 4.38
GPA: 3.1

Scouting Report
On The Hoof - David's got all the makings of a great cornerback. He's got all the size to be a terrific bump and run cornerback. His athletic ability to make him a candidate to receive early playing time. He could bulk up a bit and become one of the fastest, most vicious corners in recent memory.

Needs Improvement - Coverage. David will be an elite corner in this league when he improves his ability to cover receivers. He's got all the athletic and physical gifts to be great at this position, he just needs to work hard in drills and practices to improve his skills.

Most Impressive - Speed. Nobody in the country can fly in open space like David. He shouldn't have many problems getting beat deep or getting to over/under thrown balls.

Conclusion - David will enter camp with high regard and a great chance to compete for a dime or nickle back position. He's much faster than the former CB recruited, Daniel Breedlove but his coverage is nowhere near the same level. It will be an interesting battle.



MIKE ROSS ****
Tight End (#2 TE)
Pinewood, Florida
Pinewood

Ht: 6'5
Wt: 221 .lbs
40: 4.58
GPA: 3.5

Scouting Report
On The Hoof - Mike's built like a prototype receiving tight end. He's got a very athletic, basketball player type build that makes him a big target and many options physically.

Needs Improvement - Blocking. While he's not the big blocking TE type, he'll need to improve to block when he's asked to. He'll almost certainly have to improve his blocking to earn early playing time.

Most Impressive - Receiving Skills. He's got the mindset of a wide-out with the TE body, so that makes him a big threat. It's in the air how he progresses, he could be a big-time college TE in his freshman year.

Reminiscent Of - Antonio Gates. He's got the basketball player body and moves and that makes him a match-up problem because he's much more athletic than the average linebacker. He won't be fun to gameplan against.

Conclusion - It's really all up to Mike from this point on. He's a Rebel but he's got some stiff young competition to fight with for a starting spot. If Coach Macc doesn't see an immediate need to have this guy on the field he may serve as a red-shirt to improve his ability blocking and receiving.

Week 12 Recruiting Report

Coach Macc was confronted after a morning practice about his currently 2nd ranked 2010 recruiting class and had a few things to say...

"First off I want to give a special shout out to our recruiting staff. This EXTREMELY successful class thus far is very due in large part to the guys working around the clock to find the next playmakers of the Ole Miss Rebels. We are thrilled with the ammount of talent we've landed thus far and the recruits keep coming. We landed a commitment from yet another Alabama prospect, WR Brian Brown. This kid is a monster. He's 6'6 and about a buck 80. While Brian's not overly successful at any one skill at this moment, his size and ability to do everything WELL at this stage make him a real target to look out for. He's got a solid frame and he is a great target to be able to throw to. We also signed an Alabama FS prospect named Pat Williams. Pat's a great kid who plays in a terrific HS program right now. His speed and coverage skills right now project him to have most success at the CB position but it's really up to him at this point. He's a great athlete and after a couple of years of seasoning he'll be able to contribute in his upperclass years without a doubt. A steal at 2*s,"



BRIAN BROWN ***
Wide Receiver (#36 WR)
Chickasaw, Alabama
Chickasaw

Ht: 6'6
Wt: 179 .lbs
40: 4.5
GPA: 3.1

Scouting Report
On The Hoof - He's built like a prime-time, showcase, highlight reel receiver. There's nothing about his build that should pose any immediate concerns with the Rebel staff. This kid is going to be a baller and he certainly looks like it. He's on double scholarship for football and basketball so you can only hope the basketball conditioning only improves his stamina and power moves to get off blocks. Unlimited potential.

Needs Improvement - Release. He needs to strengthen his upper body to dominate corners off the line. If he would be able to get off a solid corners press - he would be unstoppable.

Most Impressive - Triple S. Side,Speed,Skills. This kid is extremely impressive. He has SOLID speed with a pretty good ability to catch balls and he's certainly a big target. He's extremely clutch and he makes a point to run crisp routes. He should be a good one.

Reminiscent Of - Terrel Owens. He's got all the size and skills, but right now he's really lacking a positive attitude that would bring him to the next level and make him a sure fire first round NFL draft BET.

Conclusion - Brian's going to certainly add some depth to the Ole Miss roster. He's a huge target and equally as athletic. He's the guy who you'd look to on third/fourth and long to throw it up to. Any corner in this league is outmatched by his height and frame and if he developed the ability to adjust/over power presses he will be a highlight reel.



PAT WILLIAMS **
Free Safety (#48 FS)
Prattville, Alabama
Prattville

Ht: 6'2
Wt: 194 .lbs
40: 4.46
GPA: 3.0

Scouting Report
On The Hoof - This kid looks like he could be a stud defensive back. He's a rocked up ball of muscle that's got great speed, even for a DB at this level. He's got average but steady all around skill to back up his very unlimited potential, physically.

Needs Improvement - Tackling/Coverage. He's a great athlete - but he could work on his technique defensively. He can get to the ball quickly, he just needs to learn how he should approach it better. He loves contact and is a big time competitor.

Most Impressive - Speed. He flies. He's one of the fastest guys on the field anytime he's with anyone near his age.

Conclusion - A great pick up for being a 2* prospect. He'll be a project for the Rebels and could start by his junior year, depending how he develops. He'll compete, he's defenitely a baller.

Rebels Sign Two More 4*'s

The Ole Miss Rebels have signed two more 4* prospects this afternoon, giving them by far the best recruiting class in the nation. WR Adam Gray is a Junior College athlete whose class is still undetermined from Grambling, LA as the Rebels steal another prospect from their LSU rivals. OLB Ted Stokes is another prospect out of the Minor Academy who signed on due in large part to his former teammates - T Eric Brown, CB Daniel Breedlove and WR Tray Talbot made him feel more at home. The lineage between Minor HS and Ole Miss has developed some big future prospects for the Rebels and current leading WR Talbot.

"We're thrilled about the commitments we received this week. Adam has all the makings of a terrific, All-American wide out by the time he's done. His speed and ability to make the big catch make him a player teams will have to gameplan against. We're still waiting to see what his status will be when he gets here and what his future eligibility will be. Ted comes from a great program and is a great addition to our linebacking corps. He can track ball carriers down with the best of them and will be a big help to our team in our 2012-2013 seasons. We've finished our seasonal recruiting, we've got our eye on one running back target whose a soft commitment but after that we expect to shut our recruiting doors until the off-season," Macc said.



ADAM GRAY ****
Wide Receiver (#5 WR)
Grambling, Alabama
Grambling

Ht: 6'1
Wt: 197 .lbs
40: 4.46
GPA: 3.0

Scouting Report
On The Hoof - Adam's built like a prime slot receiver that has the size to get off the press and into open field to make plays. He won't need to worry about adding any weight to his frame he's almost as good as you can get at this point.

Needs Improvement - Release. He could use some work in the weight room to not be so vulnerable to being pressed on the line. Ball catching drills will also improve his hands as he needs to improve catching the ball with his hands instead of his body.

Most Impressive - Speed. This kid flies. He'll be terrific coming off the slants and ins from the slot position. He has a tremendous ability to make the spectacular catch, which is certainly a big plus from a slot receiver.

Reminiscent Of - Mark Clayton. He runs hard routes, he catches the ball when he's needed to and he's got the similar build.

Conclusion - Adam has unlimited potential at possibly the easiest position to learn in college football, wide receiver. He's projected as a slot man that will do damage if you let him. His academics are no issue right now, the Rebels are patiently waiting to see what class he falls under after the NCAA reviews his file.



TED STOKES ****
Outside Linebacker (#20 OLB)
Adamsville, Alabama
Minor

Ht: 6'3
Wt: 235 .lbs
40: 4.58
GPA: 3.5

Scouting Report
On The Hoof - Ted is a big linebacker that looks like he's allready physically mature. He won't need to improve his physics whatsoever to play outside linebacker at the college level.

Needs Improvement - Coverage. Ted's very weak in coverage and that could pose a threat in his immediate starting ability. He's got the speed, pursuit angles and tackling ability to play at this level but he could certainly improve his ability to defend the pass.

Most Impressive - Tackling. He's a solid tackler who will track ball carriers in the back field consistently. His speed is about as good as you can hope for, for a natural linebacker. He's got a motor that always running.

Reminiscent Of - Brian Cushing. He's got the build, the athletics and the meanstreak to play at a high level. It's in his hands if he wants to be the playbook worm like Cushing.

Conclusion - Ted certainly adds depth to the Miss roster and will get a chance to prove himself on coverage teams if he doesn't redshirt. It's really in the air with him right now, depending on how he progresses. He could have a great spring and be a playmaker or he could remain quiet and consistent, it's really a toss up about his immediate future. He could be used as an extra pass rusher on third and long and be effective.

Rebels Finalize Reason Recruiting with 4* RB Doug Smith

"In preperation for bye week, the Rebels have decided to finalize our seasonal recruiting for a few weeks, until the Army Game is over because we're about at our scholarship limit and we want to keep at least three alive when certain players show their improvement. We signed running back Doug Smith today out of Paris, Texas. He's a short, powerful downhill runner and a complete power back. He runs a 4.5 and he's defenitely college ready. The young depth at our RB position however is pretty deep, hopefully VERY if Brandon decides to stay. We've got high hopes for this kid and he'll defenitely be our starter in his senior year,"




DOUG SMITH
Running Back (#7 HB)
Paris, Texas
Paris Tech

Ht: 5'8
Wt: 196
40: 4.54
GPA: 2.3

Scouting Report
On The Hoof - Doug has tremendous lower body structure and is the perfect height to remain low. He'll be the shortest guy on the field almost every time and it will help him and his powerful running style make big plays.

Needs Improvement - You could say his ultimate weakness preventing him from being a real threat is catching the ball but for his style of play, he does everything well with no big holes. He has trouble running guys over for being a power guy, he's more of a bounce off tackler back. There's no immediate areas of concern with this kid.

Most Impressive - Speed and Power. This kids got a great mixture of speed and power. He's small and when he's in open field he'll make you miss but he consistently breaks tackles. He's also very agile for a downhill runner.

Reminiscent Of - Brandon Bolden. He won't run you over but he won't let you tackle him, either. This kid should be a spitting image of the Rebels current pinball, maybe just a bit shorter. They've got a baller in Smith.

Conclusion - The young depth in the Rebels chart at back is really deep. Depending how others develop, the only reason Smith would sit out is to have two solid years where he's currently the only back in that class. He'll have two solid starting seasons, whether it's taking all of the snaps or strictly in goalline situations.
