ESPN 300 WR Pack flips to Ole Miss
By Derek Tyson
ESPN 300 wide receiver Markell Pack (Purvis, Miss./Purvis) flipped his commitment from Florida State to Ole Miss, according to the Jackson (Miss.) Clarion-Ledger. Pack confirmed his decision in a text message.
Markell Pack is the No. 12 wide receiver in the ESPN 300.
The 6-foot-2, 180-pound athlete switched his pledge while on an official visit to Ole Miss. Pack is the No. 12 wide receiver in the country and the No. 92 player overall.
Pack also held offers from Clemson, Georgia, LSU and Mississippi State, among many others.
This comes as welcomed news for Ole Miss, as four-star offensive tackle Andy Bauer (St. Louis/De Smet Jesuit) recently flipped his commitment from Ole Miss to Missouri.
The Rebels' 2014 class is currently ranked 15th. They have 23 verbal commitments, including three who are ranked in the ESPN 300. Pack is the third wide receiver to commit to Ole Miss.
Florida State, meanwhile, still has 24 commitments, including nine ranked in the ESPN 300.
Ole Miss' Laquon Treadwell, the No. 1-ranked wide receiver in the country in the 2013 class, enters Saturday's game with 53 receptions for 477 yards and five touchdowns for the Rebels as a freshman.
