Rebel Recruits’ Reactions: QB Justyn Martin, DL Jaheim Oatis, LB Stone Blanton, OT Jimothy Lewis react to the win over Tulane
OXFORD, Miss. — Saturday in Oxford was a wild, wet ride as the Rebels dominated Tulane, 61-21, in a downpour at Vaught-Hemingway. And although the rain caused a delay of almost two hours, it didn’t dampen the spirits of fans — and potential recruiting targets who are considering coming to the ‘Sip to play for head coach Lane Kiffin and company.
The Rebel Walk had a chance to catch up with some of Ole Miss’ top targets from 2022 — and even 2024 — to get their reactions from another big win!
