Linebacker: Wish List
It would be great if the Rebels could sign at least two or three more linebackers in this class. They have their sights set on a few prospects. However, there is no bigger prospect out there that the Rebels would love to sign than Willie Gay, who was a one time Ole Miss verbal commit but has since de-committed. Ole Miss remains in his final list for potential schools. This four star linebacker from Starkville, MS. would be coup. Plus it will immediately create depth at the linebacker position. Gay has star potential.
Both Mohamed Sanogo and Thomas Johnston will be in Oxford for an official visit on 1/20. Sanogo is a four star recruit from Plano, TX who has become highly sought after since de-committing from Houston. The Rebels are hoping to keep his interest high this weekend. Johnston comes from Spanish Fort, AL. Ole Miss is making inroads with him. This could be a big visit.
Another interesting linebacker prospect for the Rebels is Jeffery Burley, who committed to Wake Forest in July. However, once he received an offer from Ole Miss in October, he has slowly been moving toward the Rebels. The feeling is that he will end up a Rebel. His presence would add much needed depth and would be a good “get” for the Rebels.
