Ole Miss football: 303 pound Jeremy Liggins will get shot to play quarterback


It was just a day ago that Northern Kentucky River Monsters quarterback Jared Lorenzen made fat men everywhere proud thanks to his ability to play despite being a very, very large man. Now there may be another fat guy quarterback idol for everyone to look up to.

The Ole Miss Rebels added a JUCO signee on National Signing Day, Jeremy Liggins, that was a former LSU commit.

Liggins could potentially play tight end or defensive end for the Rebels, but he will also get a shot at playing quarterback for Hugh Freeze and company despite weighing a whopping 303 pounds.

“We’re going to find out this spring,” Freeze said, via CBS Sports. “He’s a tremendous athlete … can throw the ball 70, 75 yards.

“He’s gotten a bit out of shape … but he’s fighting to get himself down and has already lost 12 pounds. We’re real anxious to get to spring and try him out at both at the tight end spot and at quarterback.”

Hopefully Liggins can win the job and play under center for Ole Miss. At the very least, it will be something very entertaining for the world to see and, who knows, maybe he will be a future star.
