"I came up to Ole Miss for three or four games this season," Sullivan said. "I just wanted to go up there again to get a better look at their campus and spend some one-on-one time with their coaches."

The second team 2A All-State selection was impressed with what the Rebels had to offer.

"I loved it. I really enjoyed myself. It was a good experience for me. I saw a little bit of their offensive scheme, which I really like. It fits me really well. I got to see more of their facilities. The other times I've been up there have been for football games so you really don't get to see everything. This time I did. I just think the whole place is nice. Overall I enjoyed myself and had a lot of fun."

What stood out the most about Ole Miss?

"The love and I see the coaches care about their players. They want to make their players the best they can be."

Sullivan had 41 receptions for a team high 773 yards and eight touchdowns as a junior. What are his goals for his senior season?

"First I just want to help my team get to the Big House and get to the championship game. That's my number one goal. I want to better myself as a wide receiver along the way. I want to run better routes and get bigger and stronger. I run a 4.56 right now. I want to get that down to a sub 4.5 before I graduate. I weigh 190 pounds right now, and I'd like to get to at least 210 and be a bigger receiver."

Which schools are staying in contact the most?

"I've started getting some letters from Auburn and Arkansas, and of course the in-state SEC teams. I talk to Ole Miss a lot. I talk to coach (Grant) Heard quite a bit. We've built a good relationship."

Sullivan grew up a fan of two out-of-state schools.

"I always enjoyed watching Auburn and West Virginia play. I liked their offensive styles and quarterbacks."
