Ole Miss football is looking to turn around in 2020 and that’ll start with an impressive first recruiting class under Lane Kiffin.
The Lane Train has arrived at the station and that means Oxford just got a lot more exciting heading into the 2020 season.
Ole Miss hired Lane Kiffin to replace Matt Luke after just a few seasons and he has the tough task of turning a program around in the loaded SEC. Even more difficult, he has to recruit and coach against Mike Leach now who took the job at Mississippi State. The Egg Bowl just got a lot more interesting.
With National Signing Day coming up, the Rebels still have some big names left on the board to help the 2020 class and Kiffin can get off to a red-hot start.
Who are the top remaining targets for the Rebels for National Signing Day?
Scottie Phillips didn’t quite have the season he would have hoped for, rushing for just over 500 yards a year after nearly reaching 1,000. He finished third on the team behind Jerrion Ealy and John Rhys Plumlee and now he’s graduating, leaving a vacant spot in the running back rotation. Who will complement Ealy in 2020?
Will the Rebels be able to land one of the top uncommitted running backs in the class in Henry Parrish on National Signing Day?
Parrish is ranked the No. 301 overall recruit and 24th-best running back in the 2020 class, per 247Sports. The Miami-native is considering Oregon and South Carolina as well but a visit to Oxford on Jan. 31 could be perfect for the Rebels considering it’s the last visit before signing day.
Although he’s not the fastest back, he can be quite elusive and makes defenders miss. He’s tough to bring down.
