Deandre Burnett is a guard on the Ole Miss basketball team. He’s also the brother of Dalvin Cook, Florida State’s top player.
Ole Miss and Florida State will hit the field Monday night to open the 2016 season in the Camping World Kickoff. The Seminoles’ best player, running back Dalvin Cook, has a unique connection to Ole Miss: his brother plays basketball for the Rebels.
Cook’s brother, Deandre Burnett, will be eligible to play guard for Ole Miss this season after sitting out last year. He’s a transfer from the University of Miami.
In this hilarious video released today by Ole Miss basketball, Burnett meets Rebels quarterback Chad Kelly and members of the Ole Miss defense. When he is introduced to the latter, things get interesting.

That’s fantastic social media work by Ole Miss. Well-done.
