All-State QB will enroll at OM in the Fall
Posted Feb 10, 2010
The 6' 2", 185 pound signal caller out of Lamar High torched his opponents for 3, 798 passing yards and 935 rushing for 66 total TD's and only three turnovers. Witt Haggard will take his talents to Ole Miss next fall. To learn more, read below.
"I have decided I am going to Ole Miss," added an excited
. "I have always been a big Ole Miss fan, and it has been a dream of mine to play in the SEC one day."
The Meridian native got a call from Ole Miss yesterday afternoon extending him one of the ten invited walk-on slots.
"I actually heard from them today. I got a chance to talk to Coach
. We talked for a while, and he told me that Coach Nutt wanted me to be a part of their program. Coach Nutt got on the phone and asked me to come be a part of his team. It was pretty cool. He said they only have two QB's in camp and
still is not in yet. He said that Mackey will be playing a lot of the Wild Rebel until he gets a grasp of the whole offense. I do not know. He was just real positive, and he wanted to get me in early and start this thing."
What are Ole Miss' plans for Witt?
"He just wanted me to come in and compete for the job. He said he does not play any favorites. The best man wins the job, just cut and dry. But even if I start out third string behind
, anything can happen. He just wants me to be a part of his family. Coach Nutt said I would be treated just like a scholarship player, and I would get everything a scholarship player gets. Every player is one equal unit in his family he said. He just wants me to be a part of his team and see how it goes."
Haggard turned down scholarship offers from other schools to be an invited walk-on at Ole Miss because he sees some opportunities in Oxford.
"I guess when (Jevan) Snead and
it kind of opened the door a little bit. Who knows, I just want to give it my all and see what happens."
What will the three time MAIS All-State selection bring to the table for the Rebels?
"Improvement wise, it is going to be a big step from private ball to the SEC. I understand it might take a year or two before I even get adjusted so I am going to stay patient. I have to get bigger. My speed is alright. Some people question my arm strength, but I feel I can make most of the throws. And if I get bigger and stronger, my arm is naturally going to get stronger. I have a lot of mobility which is a big plus. My legs have always been a strength of mine. I do not know. I just want to come in there in May, be positive, and work hard and hopefully have a shot at the starting spot at some point while I am at Ole Miss. Who knows when that will come, but if it does, I want to be ready."
