    6 players have already entered the portal (baseball)

    Revy Higgins, Grey Bane, and Taylor Montiel have been in the portal for a couple of weeks.

    Andrew Walling, Mikey Tepper, and Bradley Wilson entered today.

    More will follow. This roster is about to be flipped upside down, and it has to happen. These next few weeks are gonna be crazy.

    I'm kind of surprised by Tepper - but that also might have been "recommended".
    "After dealing with Ole Miss for over a year," he said, "I've learned to expect their leadership to do and say things that the leadership at other Division I schools would never consider doing and to justify their actions by reminding themselves that "We're Ole Miss.""

    We've cut almost that many recruits too. WTF are these coaches recruiting? It damn sure ain't talent it appears.

    Do we have a stud catcher coming in or something? Surprised to see the only returning catcher on the roster (unless Hancock comes back) decide to transfer. You'd think that'd be somebody that would stick around.

    Kind of surprised that they're all freshman that haven't played except for Walling and Tepper. Wonder whether they just figured out (or were told) that they aren't going to be competitive for playing time or if any of them have potential but just have decided to go chase playing time rather than hope they can earn it here later. But again, Bane seems surprising unless we have a commit that he just knows is better than he is.

    Maybe Lemonis is cutting ties with recruits that a coach brought in that will be going to a different school soon. Maybe Lemonis and another coach didn’t see eye to eye on certain kids and Lemonis is going his own way. Seems like Lemonis is hitting it head on and making changes where everyone is bitching about needing to make changes so other people can bitch and complain about a coach making changes….****

    Good. Needed to happen. I suspect we will have a minimum 20 new faces between juco, freshman, and portal.

    Bane struggles mightily.
    Highfill will be ahead of him day 1.

    Any low-utilization transfer pitcher is not really a loss. If the coach had to pitch Lane Forsythe more than a roster pitcher, then there was something wrong with that roster pitcher.

    Tepper leaving is a statement about Foxhall. MT does not think Fox can help him develop to his potential. I hope he does not end up at Tennessee next season, throwing 100 mph.

    Word is there is more thought Hancock might be back. Highfill is a better prospect than Bane. The 6 won't be all. Remember some aren't on baseball aid and some are on 25% can't waste any of it, produce or look like you are going to, or that scholarship is going elsewhere.

    Tepper is a huge disappointment. Not necessarily his transfer, but his career here. That was a guy you thought would be a stud coming in.

    Agree on all this(especially not wasting any of it) Hearing Luke is seriously considering coming back.

    He was. Just never put it together. Never know. Took Hudson 3 years as well. Heck Cohen yanked his scholarship too. He came back for his jr year anyway. Thank goodness.

    If I were him - or any of our guys other than LoTan - I'd come back simply because no way I would want THIS season attached to my name. It's not like these guys are going to get big draft dollars, stay, get some grad classes and NIL and redeem yourself.

    Hancock will get next to no money if he gets drafted this year or next year. Unless he just hates college baseball, coming back and playing college ball beats the hell out of riding on a crappy bus and staying in cheap hotels for a year in rookie ball.

    The crappy bus and hotels will be there next year.

    It will be interesting to see what happens with Fristoe. I hate to say it, but I was worn out with Fristoe and Tepper throwing gas on fires, especially when Fristoe was really good the first half of his freshman year.

    I could see Fristoe going into the portal. He almost did last year. He's at least shown flashes though. Walling and Tepper did nothing.

    Thats been my stance on Hancock all along. Where is he gonna go? If he gets drafted he will be on a low level bus league team living with 4 or 5 other guys in an apartment, playing in front of tens of people somewhere after signing for a twix bar and a warm pepsi. Come back and catch next year playing SEC ball, bang college girls, and play in front of 10K or more on the reg- and then sign for your twix bar and pepsi.

    Fristoe has a big decision. He has too much talent to keep failing. He either has hope Fox can get him straight and he really likes Sville- or he needs to try playing somewhere else like LSU or A&M where he may get coached better.
