Purvis (Miss.) wide receiver Markell Pack had a breakout junior year leading to in-state rivals extending offers over the last week.
Defensive coordinator Chip Bilderbach informed Pack of the offers and told him more could be on the way.
This fall, the 6-foot-3, 180-pounder collected five interceptions on defense while racking up more than 1,200 all-purpose yards. He hauled in 44 passes for 785 yards while lining up at split end.

At his size, he can get to the edge and turn the corner on jet sweeps and reverses with ease. He is versatile scoring threat from anywhere on the field. He lined up at QB, RB, CB, S, KR, PR, and even handled punt duties for the Tornadoes. The Magnolia State standout has big-play ability.
Last summer he camped at Mississippi State and clocked a 4.42, 4.43 40. Coach Bilderbach thought the Bulldogs were going to be the first to offer, but Ole Miss beat them to it as Chris Kiffin and another staff member decided to pull the trigger.
Bilderbach said, "Mississippi State has stopped by this fall to see him, but Ole Miss got the jump and extended an offer last Thursday."
Four days after the Rebels offered Mississippi State sent him a verbal offer.
Pack has excellent size, speed, and body control. He is natural hand-catcher that doesn't fight the ball and shows good concentration.
"He is a special player. I've only coached for twelve years and I've never coached a player this gifted," Bilderbach said.
Alabama is also showing interest according to coach Bilderbach. Pack has plans to go to Oxford for the Egg Bowl next weekend. It will be his first time to The Grove.
