Some of you may have noticed that Ole Miss football has been recruiting at an incredible level as of late. In fact, they just wrapped up a top 5 recruiting class for 2013, highlighted by the commitment of the #1 player in the nation. The Rebels are making major moves in the SEC to match the pace of some of the top programs such as Alabama and Florida. How are they going about doing this? Apparently by sending 54 handwritten letters to recruits. The slew of letters was sent to 2014 linebacker Clifton Garrett of Illinois.
Sometimes I’m not sure I envy everything about the process for these young kids. Fifty four handwritten letters? Brilliant? Or too much? You decide.
