The preparation for the 2022 football season is under way in college football but the path towards building the future of the sport is never on hiatus.
It's true for Lane Kiffin and Ole Miss, fresh off of a top 25 recruiting class and its raid of the NCAA transfer portal of late. The program has gone through considerable transition, from coaching staff to roster, coming off of the first 10-win regular season in program history.
Can the success be sustained? Continued strength on the recruiting trail would have to continue to play a primary part if so in the competitive SEC West and well beyond.
Stick with The Grove Report as we track the top class of 2023 recruits considering Kiffin's program all in one spot, dissecting offers, visits, top groups, commitments, decommitments and everything else Rebel recruiting-related with the next senior class.
MAY 18, 10:00 AM UPDATE
One of Ole Miss' top wide receiver targets is making moves in his recruitment.
William Fowles, the Hialeah (Fla.) Dade Christian standout, has long been high on the Rebels and he could soon make a debut visit to Oxford.
"It's an air-raid offense and I'm a wide receiver that likes to go deep," Fowles told Rivals. "My relationship with Lane Kiffin is cool. I'm looking forward to talking to him on my official visit."
Fowles went on to mention high standing with Florida State and Auburn, as well as a possibility to visit Alabama sometime soon. The trip to Ole Miss has yet to be locked in, but the trip is expected to be taken.
A decision for the breakout prospect, who also talked Ole Miss after dominating the Miami Under Amour camp, is not to be expected until late in the 2023 recruiting cycle.
MAY 15, 3:00 PM UPDATE
Ole Miss recently offered Roman Rashada, the brother of elite high school QB Jaden Rashada, and the Rebels made his list of top three schools this weekend.
Ole Miss joins Miami and Virginia Tech as the top schools vying for the JUCO DB's attention.
MAY 14, 7:30 PM UPDATE:
One of the best safety projection in Georgia has trimmed his list and Ole Miss is still in he hunt.
Milton (Ga.) High School star Robert Billings announced his top eight schools during the afternoon and the Rebels made the list along with Clemson, Florida State, Oregon, Michigan, Kentucky, North Carolina and Duke.
Billings, who last visited Oxford in April, originally picked up the Ole Miss offer back in September to kick off his recruitment. Clemson and Florida State have also hosted the Peach State prospect for a visit this spring. Listed at 6'2", 190 pounds, the rising-senior recruit trimmed the list from a total of at least a dozen total offers.
MAY 13, 3:00 PM UPDATE:
Ole Miss has offered JUCO defensive back Roman Rashada, brother of elite 2023 high school quarterback Jaden Rashada.
Although the Rebels already have a signal caller snagged for the 2023 season, offering the QB's brother could be viewed as a way of trying to lure another to campus as well. Kiffin also isn't shy about retweeting the quarterback, the most recent instance coming earlier this week.
As for Roman, he holds offers from notable schools such as BYU, Washington, Arkansas and Miami.
MAY 12, 10:00 AM UPDATE:
One of the hottest wide receiver recruits in America will soon see Ole Miss, and for an official visit.
