OXFORD – Coming off the team’s first full-scale scrimmage, Ole Miss returned to preseason football practice Sunday evening to correct mistakes.
The Rebels spent part of the day reviewing film of Saturday’s scrimmage before taking to the practice fields for 90 minutes, working in shorts and shoulder pads on corrections, special teams and conditioning.
“After looking at the film, we still have a long ways to go,” said head coach Houston Nutt. “I was pleased with some things and not very pleased with some other things. But that’s why we have camp.”
Nutt noted several defensive players that stood out from the scrimmage.
“Wayne Dorsey did some good things, and Kentrell Lockett intercepts a ball for us,” Nutt said. “There were some big hits. C.J. Johnson and Ralph Williams were very consistent. Brishen Mathews and Damien Jackson were hitters.”
The quarterback race continues into week two of the preseason, and Nutt saw too many miscues in Saturday’s competition.
“The quarterbacks still have to keep coming,” he said. “They made too many mistakes. They have to take care of the ball. They have to make good decisions and stay out of disasters.”
Freshman cornerback Senquez Golson did not practice with the squad Sunday, as he traveled to Boston to meet with the Red Sox regarding their offer to sign a professional baseball contract.
Nutt said the eighth-round pick plans to make his decision this morning.
Preseason drills continue today, and are closed to the public.
Meet The Rebels Day is set for Saturday at noon in the Indoor Practice Facility on campus, with an open scrimmage to follow.
