More athletic on defense

Getting longer, leaner and quicker on defense was part of the recruiting plan for Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze, and that shows up in several players.

One of them is freshman end Marquis Haynes who was getting a lot of work with the ones yesterday while Fadol Brown is out with a sprained ankle.

“We’ve got to continue to recruit to that. Tee Shepard helps with that,” Freeze said.

Much more on the longer, leaner Rebels here.

Freeze also had good things to say about freshman cornerback Kendarius Webster yesterday. He’s eager to see Webster cleared fully from off-season shoulder surgery.

“He had shoulder surgery back in February, back at home. There’s some work to be done between our doctors and their doctors. He’s fully go in everything except for live periods. He feels good. I expect it to come off soon,” Freeze said.

Webster has impressed Freeze even in his limited status.

“He keeps showing up every day. He’s going to be a good player. We’ve got to get that green jersey off him and get him going as soon as we can get him fully released,” Freeze said.

    PA, the link: “Much more on the longer, leaner Rebels here” doesn’t work.

      Thanks Beeze. It should work now.

        It works.
        Coach Freeze–it would appear–is slowly & meticulously putting together an SEC caliber defense. I’m hoping they take another big step forward this season in the “journey”.
