Bobby Hill is indeed off the team and is no longer a student at Ole Miss.
Serderius Bryant will go through spring drills but has a lengthy “to-do” list to once again become a team member in good standing.
Denzel Nkemdiche will not go through spring and will be suspended for at least one game. He also has a “to-do” list. It’s longer than Bryant’s.
Channing Ward will be a tight end this spring. Some wheels still turning regarding the DUI charge to which Ward pleaded guilty. Freeze is hopeful that Ward will be cleared.
In other position change news, running back Kailo Moore to cornerback, DL Carlton Martin to OL. Jeremy Liggins will be offense this spring, tight end and quarterback.
Here’s what Freeze had to say about a lengthy injury list:
Woody Hamilton – two days ago broke his foot in indo work. He’ll be out for the entire spring. That hurts our depth at defensive line. He certainly was a guy that we’ll be depending on so we’ve got to get that fixed. He’ll have surgery within the next week. Be about a 10-week recovery deal for him.
Derrick Jones – Hip flexor. He’s day to day. I expect him probably to miss this week and then be ready to go after spring break.
CJ Johnson – The same thing. His is a little hamstring strain. We’re really going to be protective of him this spring.
Senquez Golson – Hamstring. We expect him to return after spring break.
Cody Core and Vince Sanders – All of those guys have small issues, nothing significant that will keep them out. They may return Friday, maybe tomorrow one or two of them. I really expect them to be back after spring break. (He mentioned these guys together with no specifics on the injury.)
Christian Morris – Tore his Achilles in winter workouts. Will be out for spring. He’s three weeks out from surgery, and it’s a six- to seven-month recovery.
Austin Golson – Shoulder surgery. He’ll be limited this week but should be full go after spring break.
Aaron Morris – The ACL surgery is 23 weeks out. We’re going to hold him out this spring just to hopefully get him in the best shape he can be in coming into the fall.
Waiting on Freeze with updates coming in Twitter.
In the meantime, suspended rising sophomore Bobby Hill no longer appears on the roster on the website.
Other off-season arrestees are on the roster: Denzel Nkemdiche, Serderius Bryant and Channing Ward.
Also of note, Ward has added tight end to his position per the roster. He’s listed as defensive end/tight end.
The former Aberdeen All-American appeared in all 13 games last year at end and on special teams. He had 23 tackles, two tackles for loss and one sack.
