Well not really, but I’m sure that’s how he feels at the moment.

The Rebels are having a huge National Signing Day. Not only did they receive a letter of intent from the nation’s No. 1 recruit in Robert Nkemdiche, but they’ve followed it with even more top prospects.

Five-star offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil announced that he’ll sign with Ole Miss, while four-star tackle Austin Golson joined him – a very strong pair of linemen.

Lavon Hooks – the top-ranked defensive tackle – faxed in his LOI this morning following Nkemdiche’s decision. These two are going to be one heck of a tandem and a nightmare for opposing offensive linemen.

In addition, five-star safety Tony Conner picked the Rebels over Alabama, Auburn and Florida State. He could vie for a starting spot immediately to help pad a secondary that lacked in 2012.

Top names like Laquan Treadwell, Nickolas Brassell, Kailo Moore, Jordan Wilkins and Mark Dodson – all have 90 or better ratings on 247Sports – are also expected to sign today.

Life's a breeze when you’re Hugh Freeze.

Great day indeed, however, at the end of the day it was Alabama that had the overall best recruiting class. By the way, it's not all about 4 and 5 star recruits (see USC the last 4 years), it's about maximizing the talents of the 3 star recruits that lead a school to greatness.
