RYAN BUCHANAN had offers to play for Alabama, Florida and Auburn.
But instead, Jackson Prep’s star quarterback signed with Ole Miss, the year after the Rebels went 2-10 under Houston Nutt.
There were a couple of reasons Buchanan wanted to sign with the Rebels. He grew up an Ole Miss fan, and attended games with his dad, Brooks.
And he believed in Coach Freeze. “Coach Freeze talked to me and I saw the vision he (and the coaching staff) had and I believed in it,” he said.
