OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- Second-year Mississippi coach Hugh Freeze is poised to haul in a big recruiting class on Wednesday's national signing day.
The list of potential names is stunning for a program the caliber of Ole Miss, which isn't known for its ability to attract big-time prospects. A perfect storm of family ties, momentum and Freeze's recruiting experience has brought the Rebels to this point.
If Ole Miss lands all of its targets -- which include many who are highly regarded by national recruiting analysts -- it would be the most celebrated class in school history.
But in the shark tank known as the SEC, Freeze is well aware there's no time to celebrate until those names are written on a National Letter of Intent and faxed to the football office on Wednesday.
