Offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil made the first-team on offense, while defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche and safety Cody Prewitt garnered spots on the first-team defense.

Rebels making the Second-Team Preseason All-SEC team are wide receiver Laquon Treadwell and quarterback Bo Wallace on offense and defensive back Tony Conner on defense.

Rounding out the Rebels who made the coaches list are linebackers Serderius Bryant and Denzel Nkemdiche who each were named to the third-team defense.

Ole Miss’ eight total players tied the Rebels with Georgia and South Carolina for fourth-most in the SEC. Alabama and LSU led the league with eleven players  each, while Auburn came in second with ten players chosen.

Each of the 14 coaches voted; however, coaches were not allowed to vote for their own players. For a complete list of all those voted to the Coaches All-SEC Team, please visit the SEC website, here.

The Rebels begin the season next Thursday in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game against Boise State in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
