  03/26/21 - *Elijah MooreJr/2021, Mississippi, 5-10, 178 (DS#5 WR) + More +

  Ole Miss wide receiver Elijah Moore showed off his athleticism at his pro day Thursday. Moore ran his 40-yard dash in 4.32 seconds on his only attempt. He also ran his short shuttle in 4.00 seconds and finished the three-cone drill in 6.65 seconds. Moore's 40-yard dash time would've been the third-fastest at the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine and his three-cone time would've been the fastest of any wide receiver since 2018. "I did well," Moore said. "I wanted to do more on the bench. But the 40 was around the area I wanted and the routes, I felt like I was very efficient. I'm just thankful. I can't thank God enough." Moore also ran routes and caught passes from former Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly. Moore also participated in running back drills and in punt return drills to show off the diversity of his skill set.

In 2020, Moore was voted first-team All-America by the Associated Press after catching 86 passes for 1,193 yards and eight touchdowns in eight games. Draft analysts widely vary on Moore's stock, ranking him anywhere between a first- and fourth-round pick. "Of course I have dreams and aspirations to go in the first round," Moore said. "Of course I want to go to the right position. But I've been praying a lot on top of that that whatever position I do fall into is the right position. I let God lead me. You can't go wrong whenever you do that." - The Clarion Ledger

  03/24/21 - Jerrion EalySo/2023, Mississippi, 5-08, 190 (DS#14 RB) + More +

  Starting running back Jerrion Ealy is one of four Ole Miss football players who coach Lane Kiffin does not expect to practice at all this spring because of injury. Ole Miss held its first spring practice Tuesday, after which Kiffin addressed the media for the first time since National Signing Day in February. Tight end Casey Kelly, safety Daylen Gill and defensive back Demarko Williams are the other three players who will be absent because of injuries. "Obviously there are a bunch of other guys who will be limited or will be back at some point," Kiffin said. "But we expect everybody else to be available at some point this spring."

Ealy, who was Ole Miss' leading rusher in 2020, had offseason surgery that is keeping him off the football field and the baseball diamond this spring. Kiffin did not disclose what the injuries keeping the other players out are. Gill made 18 tackles in nine games last season and Kelly caught eight passes for 115 yards and a touchdown. Williams is a freshman who early enrolled from Westlake High School in Atlanta. Additionally, Ole Miss will be without quarterback John Rhys Plumlee this spring. Plumlee is an outfielder for the baseball team who has started three games and played in 13 this season. - The Clarion Ledger

  Ole Miss has 35 seniors on the roster. Thirteen were seniors last season but opted to return for an extra season as allowed by the NCAA after the COVID-19 pandemic. Eight of those 13 were starters last season. No SEC West team returns more COVID seniors or brings back more returning starters among COVID seniors than Ole Miss. Throw in traditional seniors like Ben Brown, Jacquez Jones, MoMo Sanogo and Keidron Smith, who have three years of starting experience as well, and this team is loaded with veterans. - The Clarion Ledger

  Ole Miss' Elijah Moore and Kenny Yeboah have elected to forgo the remaining games of their Rebel football careers in order to begin preparation for the 2021 NFL Draft, it was announced Thursday.

  Ole Miss quarterback Grant Tisdale is back in the transfer portal, a school spokesperson confirmed to the Clarion Ledger. A former four-star quarterback from Allen, Texas who was a part of the Rebels' 2019 signing class, Tisdale has only played in one game for the Rebels in his two seasons in Oxford. Tisdale entered the transfer portal in October 2019 but returned to the Rebels in December after Lane Kiffin was hired as head coach. Tisdale has not played in 2020 and for more than half the season he was listed as a wide receiver on the team website. Tisdale returned to quarterback for the Rebels' final two games, warming up as the fourth quarterback option pregame. He was not on the travel squad this year. As a true freshman in 2019, Tisdale played in mop-up duty against Alabama. He completed two passes for 56 yards and a touchdown and ran twice for 10 yards. - The Clarion Ledger
