The rich continue to get richer on National Signing Day. Along with the No. 1 overall prospect Robert Nkemdiche and the top-ranked wide receiver recruit Laquon Treadwell, the Ole Miss Rebels were able to keep their momentum rolling by securing the No. 1 offensive tackle in the nation, Laremy Tunsil.
Tunsil became the latest five-star recruit to sign with Ole Miss on Wednesday morning.
At 6-foot-5 ,290-pounds, the Columbia High School product was highly sought after by schools all across the nation. The decision ultimately came down to the trio of SEC schools for the Lake City, Florida native.
Tunsil was considering offers from Alabama, Georgia and Ole Miss.
Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze has to be ecstatic about his early success on the recruiting trail. This is the kind of recruiting class that has the potential to change the direction of a program.
