Monday Morning Update

Spanning the globe on a Monday morning …

Two days before Signing Day here’s how ESPN breaks down the Ole Miss class.

There seems to have been good momentum with Birmingham offensive line prospect Jordan Sims of late. There’s been interest from Sims to Auburn too. It hasn’t looked like the same level of interest from Auburn to Sims, and in this coverage from mid-December Sims explains why he believes that to be the case.

Ole Miss lost a commit over the weekend when tight end Charles Standberry flipped to Louisville during an official visit there. The Cards recently hired Bobby Petrino to return as coach and appear to be stocking up on tight ends.

Web chatter indicates that things went pretty well for defensive lineman Michael Sawyers when the former Vanderbilt commit visited Tennessee this weekend. The Chattanooga Times Free Press makes mention of Sawyers here as it ranks the SEC’s recruiting classes.

Verbal commitment are not binding, of course, but it certainly appears that Greenwood tight end Sammie Epps is solid with his:
