Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze announced after the practice that Sophomore WR Tobias Singleton has decided to go another direction in his playing career. “Yeah Tobias is going to go another direction. We wish him the best we really do. He is a good kid and I love him, but I want to say this, Ole Miss is a wonderful place to go to school and we want people that want to be here and go to school here and be apart of what we are going to do.”
Freshman RBs Jaylen Walton and I’Tavious Mathers contintue to impress and will both get their fair share of playing time when the season hits. Walton is cat-quick on his feet and Mathers is more of a banger in between the tackles.
Sophomore CB Cliff Coleman, who had been running some with the first team, was held out of practice with a strained MCL. The same injury hit CB Wesley Pendleton earlier in the week and both are day to day.
Barry Brunetti got most of the snaps with the first team today at QB, in what seems to be a race that will go into the season. No QB has stepped up and had consistent days back to back to back and that has kept both neck and neck through a week and a half.
Here are some thoughts from Hugh Freeze after practice:
On Walton possibly moving into Tobais Singleton’s role, “Think so. Think he can do a lot of the things we do out there. Don’t know if he has the size you like to throw it to down the field, but he can certainly do things with the ball in his hands. He proves that every day.”
On RS Freshman lineman Mitch Hall, “Mitch just didn’t fit our system. He didn’t feel good about fitting into this system. Mitch is a great kid and I wish him and his family the best, but just really didn’t see himself fitting into this. I understand that and we gave him a release to wherever he wants to go.”
