It's decommitment season across the nation, but for now the Ole Miss recruiting class of 2021 has been spared from the swarm of decommitments sweeping college football.
It hasn't been a super productive month in Oxford as far as commitments go (they didn't land one), but with dozens of top recruits from around the state and nation deccommiting over the past week, it's got to be seen as a positive that the Rebels are, to this point, immune to that bug.
The Rebels are in the process of attempting to flip a few high-quality players (see later Altmyer, Trigg, Reese) and a few other potential future stars recently decommitted from other SEC programs are are now re-considering Ole Miss (see later McGhee, Lewis).
We're now just weeks away from the start of the early signing window on Dec. 16. The Ole Miss class sits at just 15 plays to this point, but it seems like they're headed in the right direction to land some more huge pieces.
See below for a more thorough evaluation of the current commits, as well as others to keep an eye on the next few weeks. Click any player name for SI All-American highlights and evaluation.
