Ole Miss Rebels coach Kermit Davis is trying to kill two birds with one stone on the recruiting trail. On Thursday, he was in to check out two different 2020 top 50 players, Jaemyn Brakefield and AJ Hoggard.
Both prospects are highly regarded; though each have slightly different ratings. More on that in just a minute.
This news was relayed on Twitter by Stockrisers reporter Jake Weingarten.
Most reputable recruiting service outlets not only have Jaemyn Brakefield pegged as a five-star caliber recruit, but most tend to agree he’s one of the 20 (or so) best prospects in the entire 2020 recruiting class. He is the higher rated of the two players.
As for AJ Hoggard, not only do all reputable recruiting service outlets have the young man pegged as a four-star caliber prospect, but most tend to agree he’s one of the 100 (or so) best players in the entire 2020 recruiting class.
Both players are obviously drawing interest from other major programs.
For Kermit Davis to excel with the Ole Miss Rebels, he will have to out-recruit those other power programs, turning his into something special in the progress.
