Is recruiting passé? Ole Miss football, Florida, LSU raid transfers

Ole Miss Football had a relatively quiet drawing period in December, compared to many of his SEC colleagues.

The Rebels have attracted 17 players, 13 of whom are three-star potential. Their 2022 recruiting class is ranked 10th in the SEC.

That doesn’t mean the sky is falling.

Programs now get multiple bites when putting together the rosters, thanks to the amended NCAA and SEC transfer rules that immediately qualify for first-time transfers.

Ole Miss is one of the programs that has been particularly active in adding high-impact transfers this winter, with 247Sports placing the Rebels in third place nationally in the national transfer rankings for 2022.

Other SEC programs also mark 247Sports’ transfer top 10. LSU is number 2, South Carolina is number 5, Arkansas is number 6, and Florida is number 10.

In this edition of “SEC Football Unfiltered,” a podcast from the USA TODAY Network, host Blake Toppmeyer and John Adams debating whether a program is better off signing an entire class of high school prospects or reining in its signing class in favor of adding a slew of transfers.
