G.W. Carver High School running back Eugene Brazley said he’s been amazed at the Ole Miss football team’s turnaround this season.
Ole Miss commit Eugene Brazley
The Class of 2013 Rebel commitment out of New Orleans said he loves the amount of effort and passion the Ole Miss team has played with this season. Brazley said it motivates him to want to come to Oxford and become a playmaker.
“They’re doing great. I liked how they played against Alabama. It really showed me that they don’t give up. That’s the stuff I like,” Brazley said.
Brazley said he’s still solidly committed to Ole Miss. In fact, he said he hasn’t talked to any other school lately.
Unfortunately for Brazley, he said his high school football season has hindered his ability to make a trip up to Oxford to watch the Rebels play.
He said, however, that he plans visiting Ole Miss for either the Vanderbilt or Mississippi State games, though he’s unsure of which one.
“I really have to get up there. With my football season, I really haven’t had a chance to go that way,” he related.
With the Rebels heading to Baton Rouge to take on the LSU Tigers in a few weeks, Brazley said he’d like to attend that game, but he doubts LSU would allow him to visit.
“I would try to go to Baton Rouge, but I don’t think they’ll let me come because I would probably be on Ole Miss’ sidelines,” he laughed.
Not only does the Rebels’ attitude impress him, he said he loves the offensive system Ole Miss is running under head coach Hugh Freeze.
“I missed the game against Arkansas, but I watched the replay. I saw how they were trying to pass the ball to (Randall) Mackey,” Brazley said. “They were trying to get him into open space. I run the same offense in high school.”
Brazley said he loves getting into open space. He said he feels while playing for the Rebels, the Ole Miss coaching staff will do a great job of getting him to the corners.
Until he arrives on campus, Brazley said he has a message for Ole Miss fans.
“Tell them I said ‘Go Rebs and Hotty Toddy,’” he chuckled.
Brazley is currently ranked the No. 34 running back and the No. 16 player in the state of Louisiana for the Class of 2013.
