Cotton Headed to Ole Miss
Colleague Katie Carrera files this dispatch:
Meade quarterback Ray Cotton signed his letter-of-intent to Mississippi, ending what became a whirlwind few months of recruiting for Cotton after he decommitted from Auburn when Tommy Tuberville resigned as Tigers head coach.
"We're really just ready for this to all be over," Raymond Cotton Sr., Ray's father said Tuesday. "We've had coaches at the house almost every weekday since everything happened with Auburn. We're glad he is happy with his decision."
Cotton, who transferred to Meade when his father, an officer in the coast guard, was stationed in Maryland, wanted to return to the South for college, his father said. After reopening his recruiting, Cotton narrowed his choices to Ole Miss and Kansas State before selecting the Rebels.
"Coach Tuberville called a few days ago to wish Raymond the best of luck," Cotton Sr. said. "He believes that Ole Miss will be a good fit for him and that's what we're hoping too."
Katie notes that Cotton is one of 36 signees for Rebels Coach Houston Nutt. Ought to be interesting to see how Mississippi manages that number.
