TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - The 2019 Rebel Road Trip made a stop at Tupelo's BancorpSouth Conference Center on Wednesday evening.
The annual caravan gives Ole Miss fans an opportunity to visit with coaches and administrators.
Athletic director Ross Bjork was joined by head football coach Matt Luke, whose Rebels just finished spring practice last week.
Luke says he's ready to move forward after the program spent the last years on NCAA probation.
"We signed 31 guys last class to get us to that 85 number," Luke said. "Nineteen of those guys from the state of Mississippi, and just really excited about that moving forward, two of which are from Tupelo."
Women's basketball Yolett McPhee-McCuin signed a top recruit on Wednesday in point guard Jayla Alexander of Pearl.
"Super excited about having her," McPhee-McCuin said. "It was important for us to let people know that we're gonna be serious about recruiting people in-state."
Men's basketball coach Kermit Davis also signed a top recruit on Wednesday in four-star guard Austin Crowley, a native of West Point.
"Not only is he an elite talent, (he has a ) great family from West Point," Davis said. "He went off to Sunrise (Academy) and really got so much better in two years, great basketball IQ, so the guy's gonna help us immediately."
