Under Armour news: Robert Nkemdiche has been trying to convince Montravious Adams to come to Ole Miss with him. The number one player in the nation as well as the number one DT to play beside him? I think we all knew Coach Freeze could recruit, but I don’t think anybody expected we’d be in on so many top recruits so early! Robert will be leaving after Friday’s Under Armour all star (all star!) game to go see his brother and Ole Miss play against Pittsburgh. He has named Ole Miss and LSU his leaders but has said it would be hard not to choose the Rebs. Rebel Nation concurs!
Former Rebel linebacker Ashlee Palmer signed a contract extension with the Lions. It was done before the end of the season but just now released to the public. Palmer, also one of the Lions’ best special-teams players, signed a two-year extension with base salaries of $1 million for 2013 and $1.25 million for 2014. He led the Lions with 14 special-teams tackles and was named to Pro Football Focus’ all-pro team on special teams. Good for Ashlee!
