Hinds Community College wide receiver and current Ole Miss commit Quadarias Mireles said he’s been very impressed with the turnaround head coach Hugh Freeze and staff has brought to Ole Miss in such a short time period.
“They’re actually doing better than I expected for this season. I expected for them to do good, but still,” he mused.
Mireles said the system the Rebels run offensively is very similar to the offense he plays in at Hinds. He said both squads like to go up-tempo, no huddle, and he said that excites him.
“That’s why I feel like I could fit right in. Teams have to try subbing in and out and try figuring out the coverage,” Mireles explained. “By the time they do that, the ball has been snapped. It really helps.”
Mireles said he really likes how Freeze gets his speed guys into open space. He believes if he gets the room, he can make plays in the SEC.
“If you get my speed in the open field, I can break it at any time,” he chuckled.
Reigning from Delray Beach, Fla., the 5-11, 185-pound wide receiver committed to the Rebels in 2010 but was ruled academically ineligible by the NCAA.
Mireles will have two years of eligibility left and he says he wants his final years of college to be at Ole Miss.
“I have other offers, but I don’t talk to other schools as much as I talk to Ole Miss,” he said.
Mireles plans are to graduate Hinds in December and enroll at Ole Miss in January. He said his grades are in check and he’s very excited to get to Oxford a semester early.
“It’s very important because I have the advantage of getting to know the plays and feeling everything out,” Mireles said.
Mireles is expected to visit Ole Miss on the weekend of Nov. 24 for the Egg Bowl.
