2 Players Have Decommitted From Ole Miss Since Hugh Freeze's Resignation

Ole Miss football is already experiencing some fallout from Hugh Freeze's resignation on Thursday night.

Freeze left the Rebels after five seasons, after news broke that he had been caught calling a Tampa-area escort service on a school-issued phone.

Athletic director Ross Bjork made it clear that Freeze would have been fired if he hadn't stepped down.

The father of star quarterback Shea Patterson has already stated that his son is not leaving the program as of now, but the team's recruiting efforts have already been impacted. Two players have decommitted from the Rebels since Thursday.

First, 2019 cornerback Bobby Wolfe backed off of his commitment on Thursday.

Wolfe didn't make the announcement himself, but retweeted a number of writers who broke the news on Twitter.

He was followed by a 2018 cornerback decommitment: three-star Jaylin Williams out of Tennessee.

Wolfe has offers from Baylor, LSU, and others, and a Texas offer could be coming soon.

Williams has offers from Indiana, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Wake Forest, Washington State, and others.

There will likely be more shake-ups over the next few days. Ole Miss fans should brace for a rough few months on the recruiting front, especially with potential NCAA sanctions looming, until a full-time replacement for Freeze is hired.
