Catching you up on the latest Ole Miss news: Ole Miss football 2023 commit linebacker Suntarine Perkins is now ranked as a five-star prospect by all four major recruiting media services.

Contrary to popular belief, Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin can bring in the top high school prospects just like the transfer portal veterans.

While the Rebels have done well in recruiting, they didn’t have a five-star rated commit in this year’s class for the 2023 season until now. Suntarine Perkins will be the Rebels’ first five-star.

Perkins is a Raleigh, Mississippi native, attending Raleigh High School where he plays both linebacker and running back. The 6’3 205 pound Perkins is ranked as the third-best linebacker in the country by 247 Sports.

He is the number one rated player at his position and the number one overall player for the state of Mississippi.

Perkins totaled more than 5,000 all-purpose yards over the course of his high school career. He ran for 2,078 yards and 32 touchdowns as a senior this past season. On defense, he amassed 267 tackles and 10 sacks over his high school career as well.

He chose Ole Miss over offers from Alabama, Georgia, Texas, LSU, Florida, Oregon, Mississippi State, and others.

This past week Perkins became rated as a five-star plus prospect, meaning that he has been officially given five-star status by all major recruiting outlets.
