Ivey League: Tre Harris, Ole Miss football embracing sky-high 2024 expectations

Ben Garrettby:Ben Garrett05/02/24


Tre Harris but a few weeks ago very publicly made clear his desire to appear on the ‘Ivey League’ with his Ole Miss football teammate, Jared Ivey.

The Rebel duo made it happen on Thursday (May 2, 2024). 

Harris is next to sit down with Ivey for the Spirit-exclusive podcast powered by RiverLand Roofing. He was preceded on the ‘Ivey League’ by fifth-year Rebel head coach Lane Kiffin and athletics director Keith Carter

Upcoming guests include former Ole Miss defensive tackle KD Hill, as well as Tracey Ivey-Muhammad, Jared’s mom, for a special Mother’s Day episode.

“Everybody knows, really, that big goal is a national championship,” Harris said, when discussing expectations for the Rebels in 2024. “That’s sitting in the back of everybody’s heads. Everybody is not necessarily feeling the pressure, but more so embracing it. 

“We’ve got the team. We’ve got the pieces. Let’s go out there and execute and become a team like we’re supposed to be.”

Ole Miss, last season, won a program-record 11 overall games. 

The Rebels have already emerged as a trendy selection for inclusion in the expanded College Football Playoff in 2024.

“Of course, winning the SEC championship,” Harris said of team-wide goals for the season ahead. “You’ve got to get there first, but that’s a huge goal for us. One of the goals I set for myself personally was to be a better leader. 

“I was actually talking with my position coach (George McDonald) about this recently, just being able to come back to a place where you feel like you left your legacy and seeing those younger guys grow up and become the guy. That’s, I feel like, one of the biggest accomplishments you can have as an older guy — being able to pour into those younger guys and really show them the right way to do things. Show them the right way to practice (and) go about treatment and everything like that.”

Harris set a new single-game school record for receiving touchdowns (4) in his Ole Miss debut. 

He finished the year as one of three Rebel wideouts with 700 or more receiving yards. Harris was the leading receiver. He had 54 catches for 985 yards and eight touchdowns. 

Harris was one of the many decorated Ole Miss veterans who, in the off-season, put off the NFL Draft to chase a title with the Rebels next season.

“Having guys like Ayden Williams and Cayden Lee, and having guys like Deion Smith and Marquis Willis coming in … it’s inspiring,” Harris said. “Seeing them learning and picking up from you. You’ve got to keep learning and doing more. Having those guys in the room is huge.

“I’m going to be back whenever we win this natty (and) after we get drafted to see the guys continue the legacy.”
