College football media site 247 Sports has released their top projected quarterback-receiver duos, with an Ole Miss combo making the cut.

It's that time of the year when we head into college football spring practice, with media dropping as many different rankings as they can. Today, 247 Sports ranked their 2024 top-ten QB-WR duos in college football, with Ole Miss making the list.

Quarterback Jaxson Dart and wide receiver Tre Harris came in at number eight, ranked among some excellent college football duos.

Dart and Harris were ranked just behind Colorado's Shedeur Sanders/Travis Hunter and SEC rivals Brady Cook/Luther Burden III of Missouri. The QB-WR pairs ranked above the two Rebels were rightfully on the list. However, an argument can be made for some of the ranked combos to be below Dart and Harris.

Georgia pairing Carson Beck and Dominic Lovett were ranked at number five. Lovett caught 54 passes in the 2023 season, as did Ole Miss receiver Tre Harris. However, Harris had 372 more receiving yards than Lovett and four more touchdowns. Beck is a good quarterback, showing that in his first season as a starter last season. However, he is not significantly better than Jaxson Dart.

I would say Dart and Harris should be ranked above the Georgia pair. Jaxson Dart had better quarterback stats than most of the quarterbacks ranked in front of him. Harris may not have had better stats than the guys in front of him. However, with the two and a half games he missed through injury, he would likely have.

Stats aside, you could see how good both players were last season for the Rebels. Dart was pinpoint across the season, with a below-average offensive line. Tre Harris was a receiver who dominated games for the Rebels, with DBs not being able to cover the Louisiana Tech transfer.

What is correct is the media see both players as a danger to defenses in 2024. Alongside the rest of the offensive weapons, Ole Miss has no defense will want to line up against the Rebels.
