Ole Miss wants in on Darius West

Four-star safety from Ohio, Darius West has been a near-lock for Kentucky for weeks. The 6-foot, 196 pound bruising defensive back has been high on Wildcats ever since Mark Stoops arrived in Lexington. West is ranked 13th at his position nationally, and holds offers from Penn State, Louisville, Illinois, and West Virginia, among many others. But the race is not over yet. Saturday, Hugh Freeze and Ole Miss extended a scholarship offer to West, sending a ripple into his plan to commit on May 30. West told ESPN he could take an official visit to Ole Miss before his commitment date, at this point still set for the end of the month. He had narrowed his list to Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan State, and Wisconsin. We will have to wait and see what impact Ole Miss has on his final four. Getting into the recruiting game so late cannot be a good look. #StoopsTroops
