His nickname and what he goes by is Tulu which might be an even better name

Yancy put in a crystal ball for Emmanuel Forbes to flip to Ole Miss from Mississippi State. He’s one of probably 4 guys remaining in State’s class that we’re actively pursuing. He’s by far the most likely to flip. Forbes also recently got a huge ratings bump by 247 into 4 star territory.

I'm enjoying watching State take all of these JUCO guys. It's going to fail spectacularly

9 JUCOs? Did Jackie even take that many in the end?

I think it’s actually 10 which is even worse lol. With 23 total commits, that means 43% of their class is JUCO. That’s gonna come back to bite them in the arse in a few years. They all seem to think it’ll work because the 2017 class had Sweat and Abrams.

And "Moorhead will get them to work together". Without any evidence to show he is capable of doing that

Forbes reminds me of Derrick Jones on film. Really good ball skills with good hands. I’ve heard Ole Miss is recruiting him at WR, but I hope he sticks on defense. He’s pretty physical and tackles well against smaller competition.

I mean it’s possible but I’ll be really surprised if this doesn’t backfire on Moorehead. They think Moorehead is elite at finding talent wherever he can via JUCOs and transfers lol. Then again, they also think Malik Heath is in the same category as DK and AJ

As far as I know, we’re full at receivers and are only taking 3 receivers in this class- Horn, Draine, and Herndon. So Forbes will most likely stay at DB.

Next years in-state receiver class is absolutely loaded. I think there’s 5 receivers in state that already have Ole Miss offers. Three of those guys are already considered top 25 receivers nationally. There could be 1-2 more that end up 4 star prospects. I think we’re saving a receiver spot (or two) for those guys next year.

I can see it now... the next season of Last Chance U might be in Starkghanistan. I'd still watch.

I have updated the second post in this thread to show the offer sheets for each of our commitments. After looking through each list, here's what I found:

1. All 23 of our commitments have 2 or more D1 offers.
2. 16 of our 23 commitments have 2 or more SEC offers.
3. 18 of our 23 commitments have 7 or more D1 offers.
4. 10 of our 23 commitments have 4 or more SEC offers.
5. 12 of our 23 commitments also have offers from at least one of Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, LSU, or Mississippi State, which are some of our closest SEC recruiting rivals in terms of proximity.
6. 8 of our 23 commitments also have offers from Mississippi State.

Irrelevant. If our measuring stick in recruiting success is Mississippi State, that's fricking pathetic

I don’t think he means only from State and then down from there. You assume the worst damn near every time.

This.

I read it to mean State is not recruiting at the level we are. Our 3*s have offer sheets that States don't. Meaning the offer sheet to a 3* isn't us, state and southern as has been the case for a lot of down years.

Great post RebBear, thanks

Ole Miss is emerging as a serious candidate for the nation’s number 1 safety and Top 50 player, Avantae Williams. The top contenders right now are Oregon (where he’s committed), Georgia, and Ole Miss. The thought right now is that even though he’s committed to Oregon, they may be behind Ole Miss and Georgia because of distance. Williams plans to visit Ole Miss in the fall. Georgia apparently doesn’t have a need at safety and may not have room for Williams so it could come down to Ole Miss and Oregon unless someone new emerges. Being that Ole Miss already has Eric Reed and De’Arre McDonald and has a good shot at flipping Emmanuel Forbes, the thought is that they can chase a bigger fish and see if they can land him. If they miss it’s okay because they’ve got some good players already, and they’ve got several high 3 star plan B guys.

Seems like there’s a gap for that type of talent on our defense. Reality is that Ole Miss is a part of the best all-around conference in football and it’s a path to the NFL. It’s a platform and great players can come in and compete early. I think we’re bound to get some talented players within the next 1-2 years with the defensive restart, so hopefully we can recruit Williams to come here and play football.

He’s definitely the type of player that would help get the defense back on track.
