Expected to Sign
C.J. Hampton Meridian, Miss 6' 1", 195 FS


**C.J. Hampton will sign his conference papers Friday. He will make a final decision Friday between Ole Miss, Alabama, FSU, and Arkansas Friday while he remains committed to the Rebels.

**Kendrick Doss signed his conference papers with Ole Miss.

**Jeremy Liggins will ink with Ole Miss today, but he still has to be granted a waiver by the NCAA to be able to enroll in January. There is a three semester rule in the SEC which states a non-qualifier out of high school has to attend the same junior college for three semesters before he is eligible to enroll at an SEC school. The former Lafayette standout went to the local N' West CC branch as a part time student last summer and fall before enrolling at N' East CC as a full time student in the spring of '13. If Liggins' waiver is not granted he would have to go back to N' East CC for the spring and would resign with Ole Miss this February and report in May. If his waiver is granted then he would enroll at Ole Miss in January and will go through spring practice with 4 1/2 years to play 3.

**All high school players who graduate early sign their national letter of intents on February 5th. The conference papers bind them to that school within the conference. The national letter of intent binds them to that school nationally.

**Early signees can start practicing with for bowl preparations until their paper work has been cleared through Ole Miss. The earliest any of them will be able to start practicing is next week. NCAA rules state you can only let your early signees practice on campus. The Rebels will be in Nashville next week practicing so none of them will be able to practice with the team there in Nashville.
