Freeze visiting injured DE Prince Tega Wanogho in hospital

By John Davis, Oxford Citizen

Ole Miss football coach Hugh Freeze has been a busy man ever since the recruiting dead period ended. He and several members of his staff were in Florida Tuesday visiting defensive end CeCe Jefferson. This afternoon, Freeze was in the hospital waiting to see another standout defensive end, Prince Tega Wanogho Jr.

Wanogho Jr., who was the subject of last week’s Know Your Recruit segment, suffered a broken left leg while playing basketball for Edgewood Academy based out of Elmore, Ala. Wanogho Jr., who arrived from Nigeria in August, is one of the nation’s top football prospects for 2015.

Ole Miss is one of the many schools actively pursuing Wanogho Jr, who made 82 tackles in his first season to ever play football. His coach, Bobby Carr, said he had a successful surgery in a text message, and that the doctors in charge of his care felt he would be ready to train again in May.

Here is last week’s post on Wanogho Jr.
