We feel instead of posting a new offer every time it could be more beneficial to make one thread and update it with new information.

Ole Miss offered '22 Forward Luke Hunger. A Canadian born prospect Hunger plays for Northfield Mount Hermon in Massachusetts. NMH has been described as an ivy league factory in the past. Hunger has done major work to his body and was listed as 6-10" 255lbs in April. He isn't a freak athlete but plays with plenty of versatility. Good footwork, Absorbs contact, and shot over 40% from deep in 30+ summer scrimmages. Bunch of mid major offers now with few high majors sprinkled in, could see more in the future.

I got the chance to talk with '22 Luke Hunger. We discussed his productive offseason, his recruitment timeline, and how his conversation with the Ole Miss coaching staff has went.

Ole Miss has made the final seven for Jaylen Martin. The others rounding out the seven are Georgetown, Florida, Georgia, Cincinnati, Wake Forest, and Texas Tech.

OM offered back in 2020. He has been on campus before (w/ Tre Donaldson?) and enjoyed it.

He will be on campus September 10-12 for a visit. He attends Florida State Univ. School and is 69th in latest 247 rankings

Guard LJ Thomas is down to six schools. Along with Ole Miss, the rest are Memphis, NC State, Houston, Georgia, and the newly formed Overtime Elite. He is the 24th best PG in the class of 2022.

In an interview with Phenom Hoop Report, Thomas had this to say:
"Ole Miss: Coach Kermit really lets his guards go; he is a guards coach. He and Coach Hamilton have built a great relationship with me and they believe I can come in right away and make an impact." - Thomas

My belief is Ole Miss could be a major player alongside Houston and Georgia. He will visit Oxford on September 18th.

Ole Miss has made the final three for '22 Center Shawn Phillips Jr. The Rebels will be in the mix for the big man alongside West Virginia and NC State. It's been no secret that the Rebels have been in the mix for a big man. Below is an excerpt from my forum post on 8/11/21. He is a top 20 center for the class and a top 130 player by 247 and top 100 by rivals.

Shawn "Baby Shaq" Phillips Jr is a 6'11" Center from Ypsi Prep Academy in Michigan. He was offered by Coach Levi Watkins over the weekend as the Rebels continue to look for big man options in the '22 class. In March, Phillips Jr released a top 7 of Indiana, Florida, NC State, Ohio State, West Virginia, Cincinnati, and Dayton. Time will tell if the Rebels can make up any ground in his recruitment process.

It appears as though '22 Center Malique Ewin is on an official visit to Ole Miss currently. The Lilburn GA native is the 5th best center (#51 overall) in his class according to prephoops.com. Rivals have him as a top 75 player in the class, while 247 has him as a fringe top 100 player. He stands 6-9"/6-10" and weighs around 220lbs. His game has tremendous upside and he can really move. He is still developing a full offensive game but can make plenty of plays off the drive and is a legit mismatch for most bigs. Has a really good motor and nice hands.

Other Offers: Bama, UGA, UF, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, Xavier, Illinois, Mississippi State, and many others.

Ole Miss made its first move of the open period as some members of the staff were at Clinton MS to see Kimani Hamilton.

Creighton was also there. Also isn’t taking his visit to Miss State for “personal reasons”
