The Ole Miss Football Team made a dramatic turnaround under first year head coach Hugh Freeze last season, winning seven games, including the BBVA Compass Bowl.
That turnaround continued at the start of National Signing Day, with some of the nation's elite prospects choosing the Rebels. Just hours after securing the nation's top recruit, defensive lineman Robert Nkemdiche, the Rebels added two of the country's best offensive linemen.
Top-rated left tackle Laremy Tunsil completed his improbable recruiting journey, picking the Rebels. As recently as three weeks ago, Ole Miss didn't appear to be in the picture for Tunsil, but he began to consider the Rebels after a visit to Oxford, and ultimately signed with Freeze.
Prattville's Austin Golson was also an unlikely Rebel just a few weeks back. Committed to Florida State for more than two years, Golson had a change of heart late in the recruiting process and ended up signing with the Rebels as well.
