Last Saturday Louisiana high school senior football player Floyd Raven verbally committed to Ole Miss.
Neal McCready of RebelSports.net reported of Raven’s recruitment by Ole Miss:
Floyd Raven loved his experience at Ole Miss’ elite camp in June.
Ole Miss loved him back. The Rebels’ staff, wowed by his performance against top wide receivers such as Nick Brassell and Donte Moncrief, not only offered him a scholarship on the spot but also made him a priority.
Raven loved the time at Ole Miss so much, in fact, that he very nearly committed to the Rebels on the spot.
So, what took so long for Raven to commit?
Raven to RebelGrove.com:
“To be honest, with me being a black male, I wanted to see everything for myself. That’s why I was slow to commit. When I got here (Friday), it was the total opposite of what I heard. My girlfriend, mom and everyone totally loved it.”
