Ole Miss has landed players out of Crete-Monee (Ill.) High in the last two classes, and it would love to make it three years in a row by adding Rivals100 linebacker Nyles Morgan. The Rebels will get a chance to move closer to that goal when Morgan visits Oxford this weekend.
"I am anticipating it to be a fun trip, an exciting trip, because I am going down there with my teammate," Morgan said. "He's been talking with me about it since day one, so I expect good things. We will probably spend some time with the players and see the spring game."

The teammate accompanying Morgan to Ole Miss this weekend is Laquon Treadwell, the nation's No. 5-ranked prospect in the class of 2013 who signed with the Rebels in February. This will be Morgan's first visit to Ole Miss, but he has heard plenty about the program from Treadwell.
"He has actually told me about everything -- the school, the campus, the people, the atmosphere," Morgan said. "My [interest] is pretty high because they have been on me since day one. I have been trying to get down there for awhile now but I just didn't have the time, so I am excited to see what's going on down there."
The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Morgan has heard plenty about the school from his talks with Ole Miss coaches Hugh Freeze, Tom Allen and Grant Heard. Their discussions have included how they foresee Morgan fitting into the defense.
"They want me to play the strong inside linebacker," Morgan said. "They want to utilize my speed and my rushing instincts."
Morgan and Treadwell leave for Oxford on Friday and will stay through Sunday. It is the last trip Morgan has planned for the spring, but he has other schools he wants to see in the coming months.
"I plan on visiting Florida, and I'll probably get out West and see some schools," Morgan said. "I want to see UCLA, USC, Arizona and Arizona State, if I can get to all those schools."
The offers continue to pour in for Morgan, who has a list with more than 30 schools on it. Mississippi State and Miami were the most recent schools to join that list.
"Miami offered [Wednesday] night," Morgan said. "Miami is always a top program. That is where Ray Lewis came out of, and Miami is a linebacker school."
