Rebels poised for huge finish to 2016 recruiting class

Rebels poised for huge finish to 2016 recruiting class

Head Coach Hugh Freeze and the Ole Miss Rebels are poised for a big finish to the 2016 recruiting season, which will culminate with National Signing Day next Wednesday, February 3.

Just how big the finish is may be determined, in part, by what takes place this weekend. By all accounts, the Rebels will have twenty recruits, give or take a few, on campus in Oxford over the weekend.

The experts who follow recruiting closely are the first to acknowledge that the situation is quite fluid; there will be some surprise visitors, and possibly one or two who do not show up.

Regardless of what happens this weekend, however, Ole Miss is currently ranked No. 4 in the 247Sports 2016 Recruiting Rankings and could finish even higher–depending on how this weekend goes.

According to 247Sports, here is the most recent list of players who’ll be visiting Ole Miss this weekend.
