OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Second-year Mississippi coach Hugh Freeze is poised to haul in a big recruiting class on Wednesday's national signing day.

The list of potential names is stunning for a program the caliber of Ole Miss, which isn't known for its ability to attract big-time prospects. A perfect storm of family ties, momentum and Freeze's recruiting experience has brought the Rebels to this point.

If Ole Miss lands all of its targets - which include many who are highly regarded by national recruiting analysts - it would be the most celebrated class in school history.

Freeze isn't celebrating yet. He knows that in the Southeastern Conference you can never count on landing a recruit until his name is written on a National Letter of Intent and faxed to the football office on Wednesday.
