Ole Miss sophomore WR Laquon Treadwell caught seven passes for 105 yards and a touchdown in the school's 35-13 win over Boise State.

Treadwell reportedly added 15 pounds of muscle this offseason and it showed in his game. Bo Wallace frequently allowed Treadwell to get downfield against man coverage, lob it up and allow his receiver to win at the catch point. He is not draft eligible, but Treadwell is a name to watch on a talented Ole Miss team.

Ole Miss senior QB Bo Wallace completed 25 of 36 attempts for 387 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions, in the school's 35-13 opening win versus Boise State.

Wallace had a rough start, throwing three interceptions in the first half of play. The Ole Miss prospect failed to look off defenders, locking on his targets, while not following through on his progressions. For about 2 1/2 quarters the Rebels' offense struggled to separate from Boise State, but put together consecutive scoring drives in the fourth quarter to pull away with a victory. Moving forward, Wallace will need to improve his play if he plans to impress evaluators.

Mississippi announced Jeremy Liggins has been moved to tight end.

The JUCO transfer practiced as a quarterback this spring in the hopes he could be a Wildcat point man. Because he's 6-foot-3, 296 pounds, that would have been a fun experiment indeed. Unfortunately, it's now over, and Liggins will play tight end. "Jeremy is overwhelmed a bit with learning what he has," coach Hugh Freeze said. "I just did not want to add on to that." Instead, 6-foot-1, 212-pound defensive back Anthony Alford will be the Wildcat QB. Bo Wallace, of course, is the Rebels' starter.

Mississippi senior CB Senquez Golson "possesses natural cover skills," writes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"Golson has enough agility and speed to intrigue scouts," Rang wrote. The corner also played outfield for the Ole Miss baseball team in 2012 and was an 8th round pick of the Red Sox in the 2011 MLB draft. "Golson's size is an obvious detriment but he possesses natural cover skills due to his athleticism and has recorded six interceptions in his 36 career game appearances," Rang wrote. The 5-foot-9, 180-pound Golson has 4.43 speed.

Mississippi redshirt senior ILB Deterrian Shackleford is a 'tweener who "lacks the size to remain at defensive end and isn't fast enough to handle coverage responsibilities at linebacker," writes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Shackleford is entering his sixth year of eligibility after missing the 2011 and 2012 seasons with separate ACL surgeries. He collected 44 tackles, including 7.5 for loss and two sacks in his return last year. "Shackleford has 'tweener traits as he lacks the size to remain at defensive end and isn't fast enough to handle coverage responsibilities at linebacker," Rang wrote. "He's physical, alert and a fiery leader, however, and played his best football down the stretch last season."

Mississippi senior S Cody Prewitt "looks the part of an NFL safety, sporting a well-built frame with long limbs," writes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Prewitt earned All-American honors last year after leading the conference with six interceptions. He added 71 tackles and two forced fumbles. Prewitt is also a durable prospect who has never missed a collegiate game. "He is an alert, active defender with good vision and the athleticism to handle deep coverage responsibilities," Rang wrote. "He changes directions fluidly and is a smooth accelerator. He possesses good (but not great) top-end speed and can get himself in trouble with aggressive pursuit lines that leave him little room for error. Prewitt generally is asked to play two-deep or the single high free safety role, rarely dropping down close to the line of scrimmage to cover slot receivers. From this center-field vantage point, Prewitt shows good understanding of route concepts, anticipating where the ball is going and getting a jump on it. He has good hands for the interception and times his leap to take the ball at its highest point."

Ole Miss freshman WR Sammie Epps was arrested on Friday night on charges of driving without a license and possession of marijuana inside a motor vehicle, according to the Clarion Ledger.

The former four-star TE recruit out of Greenwood High School, was released from jail that morning after posting bond and resumed practice at Ole Miss on Monday. The 6-foot-5, 215 pound Epps, was originally slated to play tight end, but has now been moved to wide receiver and will play in the slot.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang believes that Ole Miss senior LB Serderius Bryant's "size likely keeps him from being drafted, but he's an aggressive and speedy defender with a history of making the splashy play."

Despite starting in seven games, The 5-foot-9, 215 pound Bryant led the Rebels with 78 tackles, including 12.5 for loss and three forced fumbles last season. In February, Bryant and fellow linebacker, Denzel Nkimdiche were arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, being drunk in public and disturbing the peace.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang notes that Ole Miss junior S Trae Elston "attacks downfield in the running game, popping off the screen due to his closing speed."

The Rebels' prospect played in every game last season with 11 starts at Rover, and finished fourth on the team with 62 tackles and third with six passes defended. Rang notes that Elston's "hard-hitting" and "extremely aggressive" style of play provides quite the complement to Prewitt in the Rebels' secondary.

Ole Miss senior QB Bo Wallace "shows good accuracy and enough velocity to zip in-cutting routes but average arm strength" is a concern, according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"He shows good accuracy and enough velocity to zip in-cutting routes but average arm strength and a bit of wind-up make long throws outside of the hashes a concern when projecting to the NFL," Rang wrote. While Wallace "plays with good awareness," Rang notes that he "doesn't always step into his throws" leaving "passes fluttering." which can leave his passes fluttering, though he anticipates his receivers' breaks well and usually places the ball where only his receivers can get it. Wallace enters his senior season ranked second in Ole Miss history in total offense with 7,085 yards and second in passing with 6,340 yards.

Ole Miss senior DE C.J. Johnson's "speed off the corner" is his "best attribute," according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"His speed off the corner is Johnson's best attribute but he possesses good leg drive for the bull rush and has a nifty spin back to the inside to complement it," Rang wrote. While the 6-foot-2, 237 pound Johnson, is listed at defensive end by the Rebels he is most effective in a two-point stance. The Rebel has a "quick first step and accelerates smoothly, showing good balance and flexibility to scrape the edge," Rang notes.

Ole Miss HC Marquis Haynes is "giddy" about freshman edge rusher Marquis Haynes, according to SI's Thayer Evans and Pete Thamel.

Haynes enrolled in January after spending a season at Fork Union Military Academy and produced two sacks in the spring game. Ole Miss is down their top edge rusher for the season in C.J. Johnson. Haynes originally signed with UNC out of high school but could not qualify academically. "Haynes will likely start against opponents with spread offenses and probably rotate against those with attached tight ends, but will certainly be in against both on third downs," Thamel and Evans write.

Ole Miss sophomore DL Robert Nkemdiche believes he will have a breakout season this fall.

"I can play without my head spinning," Nkemdiche said. "Everything is so calm and easy for me to pick up, and that's why I'm going to have a really big year. ... I'm going to have a huge year this year, man -- I know it." The former No. 1 recruit, 6-foot-4 and 280 pounds, underachieved while struggling with injuries during his true freshman campaign. Nobody expects those struggles to persist. "His sheer size, and he's so big and fast and agile," safety Cody Prewitt said. "You don't see very many guys like that, and I'm glad he's on our side." Added LT Laremy Tunsil, a fellow five-star 2013 recruit: "When I say he bull-rushed me, oh man. I felt all 310 [pounds] just coming at me, full of muscle, six-pack and everything. I was like, 'I see why he's No. 1.' I've never seen somebody so explosive coming off the ball in my life."

ESPN's Kevin Weidl notes that Ole Miss sophomore DL Robert Nkemdiche "flashes some impressive feet considering his size."

"Just your typical 6'5, 295 lbs running back," Weidl deadpanned. This isn't the first time this offseason we've heard somebody gush about Nkemdiche's freaky athleticism and frame. In July, senior DE CJ Johnson exclaimed: "I ain't never seen anybody 295 lbs with abs like he's 125 lbs." The former top recruit has lined up on the edge, but we wouldn't be surprised if he's eventually moved inside.

Ole Miss HC Hugh Freeze has been pleased with suspended redshirt junior LB Denzel Nkemdiche approach to his punishment.

"I thought his attitude and leadership out there in practice thus far is always positive," Freeze said. "He's kind of accepted what his punishment is and has gone through it very nicely." The older brother of former top recruit Robert, Denzel Nkemdiche appears on track to play in the school's second game of the season against Vanderbilt.
