With National Signing Day for the 2024 recruiting class in the books, Ole Miss is starting to pick up steam on the recruiting trail for 2025.

Last week, the Rebels added Opelousas (La.) four-star linebacker Corey Amos. Now, they’re trending for Horn Lake (Miss.) Lake Cormorant four-star linebacker Jarcoby Hopson. Currently, the Rebels hold an 83.5% chance of landing Hopson, according to the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine.

Ole Miss’ chances, per the RPM, received a boost after an expert prediction with a 65% confidence level was logged by Ole Miss recruiting insider Zach Berry.

Hopson is the younger brother of Jarnorris Hopson, who just signed with the Rebels.

More on Ole Miss recruiting

Ole Miss put together an impressive recruiting class in the 2024 cycle. The Rebels signed 21 prospects, resulting in the No. 20 class in the nation, according to the On3 Industry Team Recruiting Rankings.

Headlining the class is Lake Cormorant (Miss.) four-star defensive lineman Kamarion Franklin, the No. 81 overall prospect and No. 10 DL in the On3 Industry Ranking. He is one of four four-star prospects headed to Oxford.

“The opportunity to put on for my home state and put my state on notice,” Franklin told On3 upon his commitment to Ole Miss. “The relationships I have developed at Ole Miss is also what led to this decision. My ability to impact my state is major and I’m ready to put on for it!”

The class also includes the top-ranked JUCO prospect in the nation’s No. 1 wide receiver Deion Smith. He’s joined at the top of the class by Houston (Miss.) four-star interior offensive lineman William Echoles and Taylorsville (Miss.) top-10 JUCO CB Cedrick Beavers.

“After grabbing 48 receptions for 1,063 yards and 12 touchdowns in junior college, he has solidified himself as a bonafide dude,” Ole Miss insider Zach Berry wrote of Smith. “Kiffin and Kelvin Bolden have all believed he was capable of stepping right in and being the guy for Ole Miss. Now, he will get his chance to prove them all right next season.”
