Wednesday Morning Update

Spanning the globe on a Wednesday morning …

You only thought the recruiting madness ending on the first Wednesday of this month.

No matter what happens with Ole Miss football recruiting in the Class of 2016 moving forward the news will not get bigger than it did yesterday when five-star quarterback Shea Patterson committed to Ole Miss.

This is the point where we remind everyone that verbal commitments are non-binding. You need look no further than Ole Miss’ signing day a few weeks ago for a painful reminder of exactly how non-binding those commitments are.

That said, there are signs of stability around Patterson and reasons to believe he’ll be one of the firsts to submit his paper work to Ole Miss.

When a guy of this nature says he’s fully committed and wants to start recruiting on behalf of his newly chosen school look out. There’s an anticipated snowball effect building. We’ll see where it leads.
