Ole Miss begins to wrap up Spring Practice as the Grove Bowl approaches. The Rebels have been busy implementing new systems on both sides of the ball with a revamped coaching staff. Tuesday, we heard from the defense about how they’re adapting, but Thursday was the offense’s turn to speak.
Greg Little has slimmed down from 340 to 320 and discussed how he is able to keep with the tempo of the new offense. After a freshman season which he deemed a “C”, A.J Brown is ready to take the next step as a pivotal part of the Rebel offense. WR D.K. Metcalf quickly became a force to be reckoned with in 2016 before a broken foot ended his season. The talented WR talked about how he used last year to get mentally up to speed and how he is attempting to round out his game this spring.
The pair of young WRs also opened up about what it’s like playing for new WR coach Jacob Peeler and how close the two were to heading out west to play their college ball.
LT Greg Little
“I’m not as winded. I notice my wind five plays later is way better than last season. Last season, I was huffing and puffing looking for a sub; but this season, I’m waving off guys. I definitely enjoy the weight loss and don’t want to gain it back.”
WR A.J. Brown
“I was always told that potential doesn’t mean anything, but we’ve got a lot of talent in the room. We can make plays. We do the small things every day. This room is really going to take off this year.”
WR D.K. Metcalf
“It hurt, but everything happens for a reason. I just looked at it as God giving me an opportunity to sit down and take up as much knowledge as I can and get back to work.”
