Ole Miss Football are coming out of a weekend that featured their junior day, with high school players visiting Oxford on Saturday. Could we see early commitments for Lane Kiffin from 2025 recruits?

Lane Kiffin and his staff are looking to get a head start in the 2025 recruiting class, with several recruits impressed with what Oxford has to offer.

During Saturday's junior day, Ole Miss grabbed a commitment from four-star linebacker Corey Amos. A Louisiana native, Amos is the 24 ranked linebacker per On3.

Getting a commitment out of the weekend's junior day was solid work from Lane Kiffin, Kelvin Bolden and the team. However, they also put in the groundwork for more recruits to have Ole Miss high on their lists as a potential location to play football.

One of those players was Jhase Thomas, the son of former Ole Miss cornerback Fred Thomas. Jhase said that the Rebels were leading the race for his commitment as it stands.

Lane Kiffin and the staff did an excellent job in the 2024 class of keeping in-state recruits at Ole Miss. They are looking to do the same again, with several of the top Mississippi players in Oxford on Saturday.

There is a crystal ball prediction for four-star running back and Mississippi native Akylin Dear. Ole Miss staff have visited Dear in Quitman a handful of times, with the RB a top target for the Rebels.

With plenty of other top recruits from Mississippi and other states, the feeling was that the players were highly impressed with the future at Ole Miss. Recruits will look to narrow down their field over the next months, with the Rebels having a good chance to make the cut with most recruits.
