Ole Miss continues to reach outside region

Ole Miss has reached far beyond the normally-fertile recruiting grounds of the Southeast and is sending offers to prospects in the Midwest and along the Atlantic.

That trend continued Tuesday when New Jersey cornerback Tre' Bell (Jersey City/St. Peter's Prep) picked up an offer from the Rebels.

Bell said recently that another SEC team is his dream school and favorite, though.

“I was a Florida basketball and football fan before they won the two national championships in football and basketball,” he said Feb. 13. “I loved everything about Florida, the Gator chomp and everything.”
