AUSTIN, Texas — Quincy Adeboyejo
isn't a big talker. But he did promise this:
"We're going to do some real big things," he said.
By ‘we,' Adeboyejo was speaking of the University of Mississippi, which has made the biggest National Signing Day splash with signings of
three five-star recruits
— Robert Nkemdiche, Laremy Tunsil and Antonio Carter. All were uncommitted heading into the day.
The Cedar Hill (Texas)
receiver did his part by signing his national letter of intent to Ole Miss. He wasn't able to attend the nation's largest signing day celebration — the USA Football Signing Day Breakfast at The Renaissance Hotel Austin Wednesday.
Adeboyejo signed along with other under-19 USA players headed to the SEC, including Colquitt County (Moultrie, Ga.)
lineman Octavius Jackson
(Florida), Clay County (Manchester, Ky.)
lineman Jacob Hyde
(Kentucky), Jonesboro (Ga.)
defensive back Taurean Ferguson
(Vanderbilt), Fort Zumwalt South (St. Peters, Mo.)
running back Chase Abbington
(Missouri) and Columbus (Miss.)
lineman Jake Thomas
Adeboyejo said Monday that he took his official visit the same weekend as Nkemdiche and Tunsil, got their numbers and made calls to them over the last several weeks.
"It's all part of the process," Adeboyejo said.
Another Texas prep commit, Skyline (Dallas)
quarterback Devante Kincade
also signed to Ole Miss Wednesday. "We live close together so we're going to start hooking up and throwing together," Adeboyejo said.
With the flurry of signings, Ole Miss moved from the Top 20 in the college recruiting rankings up to No. 6. It might even go higher.
"Like I said," Adeboyejo said. "We're going to do some special things."
