"I had 8,000 people a day ask me what I was going to do," stated an excited Sam Noblin late last night. "I decided what is best for me is to head to Oxford. I am kind of glad the recruiting process is over, and I am excited to get an opportunity to be a Rebel."
Sam's father, Jeff Doblin, was an All-SEC defensive performer for the Rebels back in the 80's and that love that he shared with his father was just too much to over come for Memphis, which offered him a scholarship, and Mississippi State, who he took in an official visit with this past weekend.
""I just grew up being an Ole Miss fan. I grew up going to all of those games. It's in my blood. Throughout the whole recruiting process, it started out slow with Ole Miss, but they really picked it up later on (in the recruiting process). I really liked everything on my official visit. It gave me a different perspective of Ole Miss. I get a long with all of the players that are going there too. We just clicked on our visit together. Their facilities are awesome and their coaches are top notch. I feel they are definitely the best fit for me."
The only thing left is where to play the 6' 3", 205 pound All-State selection? He started at both quarterback and safety for Ocean Springs. This past season he had over 1, 200 passing yards, close to 500 rushing yards, 23 total TD's and 81 tackles while manning the safety position.
"They have not really put a set position. They said that is good because they are going to put me where I needed the most so I can get on the field the quickest. They are going to start me out at safety though, but if they need some help at QB, they will move me over there.
