Meridian's Hampton Enrolls at Ole Miss


OXFORD, Miss. – Winter intersession classes are underway at Ole Miss and have brought a couple of new faces to the Rebel football program, as mid-year signees C.J. Hampton and Christian Morris have arrived on campus.

Hampton is enrolling early after graduating from Meridian High School, and he will be a true freshman in 2014 with five years to play four for the Rebels. Morris, an offensive lineman who transferred to Ole Miss from UCLA, was previously announced as a member of the Rebel squad in December.

Hampton, a 6-foot-1, 195-pound safety from Meridian, Miss., was a U.S. Army All-American this season. A consensus four-star recruit and the No. 59 prospect nationally according to, Hampton is listed as one of the country’s top 10 safeties by 247, and He was an all-state selection and the Region 3-6A Defensive Player of the Year after a senior season that saw him register 111 tackles and four interceptions while helping Meridian High to the 6A state semifinals. The Clarion-Ledger Dandy Dozen selection chose the Rebels over Alabama, Arkansas and Florida State.

More mid-year transfers are expected to arrive on campus later this month. These players will practice with the team beginning this spring.
