Jordan Free took an unofficial visit to check out Ole Miss over the weekend and there was some talk that Ed Orgeron was going to offer the Baton Rouge (La.) Parkview Baptist offensive lineman if he passed the eyeball test.

“They offered me a scholarship,” Free said. “He walked out the door and shook my hand then said in front of a lot of people I want to offer you a full scholarship.”

The Rebels pulled out a 38-31 win over Northwestern State (La.) and the atmosphere on campus may not have been at its norm but it still impressed Free.

“It was nice,” he said. “The stadium holds like 60-something thousand and I saw some people tailgating in the Grove or whatever they call it so it was nice. There wasn’t that many people there on Saturday and it wasn’t that electric but I’ sure for a big game they have a lot of people show up and stuff.”

The big 6-3, 280-pounder plays guard, tackle and even lines up some at fullback in Parkview’s power sets and one of the this he brings to the table is the versatility to play anywhere on the line.

“They asked me if I had snapped before so I assume he is thinking about using me as a center but he really didn’t say for sure where they would play me,” said Free.

The Ole Miss offer was the third one that Free picked up this past week as Tulane and McNeese State also extended him an offer to bring his total eight.

“I like Tulane and I might take a visit there to check out some things a little more,” he said.

With that said, though, it’s two Mississippi schools sitting at the top of his list.

“Ole Miss and Southern Miss are my top two schools right now,” he said.

Parkview Baptist is primed to make a deep run into the state playoffs so official visits will have to be put on hold for a while but Free has some trips that he is thinking about taking.

“I’ve talked to Ole Miss, Southern Miss, Tulane and ULM about taking a visit but I’m going to wait a little bit longer and see what else happens then start setting them up,” he said.
