Newcomers to the Ole Miss football team reported to Oxford Thursday.
Highly touted defensive tackle Ted Laurent of Georgia has been cleared to practice even though his academic standing has not been ruled on yet by the NCAA.
Meanwhile, the Jerrell Powe saga continues.
Powe's attorney has criticized the NCAA for the length of time they are taking to review his case.
The former Wayne County star has been connected with the Ole Miss program since February 2005, when he signed with the Rebels.
He's been trying to qualify academically ever since.
