Ole Miss has interest from Watch List RB

By Dave Hooker

Ole Miss recruiting has caught the attention of one of the top juniors in Mississippi.

"I think that they are doing a great job at recruiting this year's class and they are off to a nice start for next year's class," ESPN Watch List running back D.K. Buford said on Thursday.

Ole Miss has the No. 21 signing class in the nation. It is expected to get much better soon with some highly-rated commitments that are considering the Rebels. Ole Miss also have a commitment for the 2014 class from safety Calvin Hampton from Meridian (Miss.) High. Buford is paying attention to what's going on in Oxford.

"I'm really interested in Ole Miss right now and I'm going to their junior day," Buford said, referring to the Feb. 2 event.

Buford, who is from Oxford (Miss.) Lafayette, has scholarship offers from Ole Miss and Mississippi State. He has received strong interest from Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, LSU, Missouri and Tennessee.
