Kendrick Hardy has elected to spend his college days close to home. Earlier this month, Hardy narrowed his choices down to two schools, Ole Miss and Southern Miss. After taking a pair of official visits and some time to think things through, Hardy has made the call.

"I committed to Southern Miss last night," said Hardy. "I called and talked to Coach Anderson and Coach Hughes. They were excited."

Hardy held offers from around the southeast including four SEC offers, but he believed Hattiesburg was the best destination for him long term.

"I just felt was best for my career," said Kendrick. "They have good coaching there and I think I can be a better player. They have a good program and they are winning."

With his college destination now determined, Hardy reports that his recruitment is now over.

"I am done," said Kendrick. "I am relieved. I am glad it's all over. My family is relived too. They can come see me play, so they are happy with my decision."

Hardy will now turn his attention towards the spring sports and his preparations for the 2009 football season.

"I am going to run track," said Kendrick of his spring plans. "I am going to be lifting weights and everything to get ready for the season after that."
