Photo: Ole Miss Sent A Recruit A Photoshopped Twitter Feed From Signing Day 2015 Showing Him As A Rebel Commit

Football programs have gotten extremely creative when using social media to recruit, and if anyone knows recruiting, it is Hugh Freeze's staff at Ole Miss. Freeze's first full recruiting cycle in 2013 produced a top five class, and his 2014 class is ranked 14th by 247Sports. 

Ole Miss is after five-star defensive end Cece Jefferson, and came up with a very cool tactic in recruiting the Florida native. Jefferson tweeted a picture sent to him by Ole Miss of an iPhone with a Twitter feed open, with Scout, Rivals, and 247Sports announcements that the Rebels had received a Signing Day 2015 commitment from the talented defensive end, as well as Kirk Herbstreit saying that Freeze is "building something really special" in Oxford. As far as recruiting photoshops go, this is a pretty cool idea by Ole Miss.

98% of the predictions in 247's "Crystal Ball" have Jefferson heading to Florida, so it appears that Ole Miss has some ground to make up to make this Signing Day prediction come true.
