Ole Miss has signed a big time quarterback who’s absolutely the biggest man on campus now.
Jeremy Liggins is a junior college transfer quarterback for the Rebels, who began spring practice this week right around 300 pounds.
His official Ole Miss bio lists him as a 6’3″, 296-pound athlete.
Even though Liggins has played on the defensive line, Rebels coach Hugh Freeze will give Liggins a chance under center according to Joe Student of Busted Coverage.
Freeze also discussed new JUCO signee Jeremy Liggins, a one-time LSU quarterback commit who Freeze says currently weighs in at 303 pounds — and will still get a shot at playing quarterback for the Rebels.
“We’re going to find out this spring,” Freeze said of Liggins’ chances at remaining at quarterback. “He’s a tremendous athlete … can throw the ball 70, 75 yards.
“He’s gotten a bit out of shape … but he’s fighting to get himself down and has already lost 12 pounds. We’re real anxious to get to spring and try him out at both at the tight end spot and at quarterback.”
The Oxford, Miss., native was a 4-star dual-threat quarterback LSU signee from the class of 2012.
