Recruiting is the lifeblood of any program. Game day weekends are one of the biggest recruiting tools that a program has to entice young men to campus. This week more than 150 of the top prospects from around the South are expected on the Southern Miss campus for the Annual Black and Blue Game with Memphis.
Several prospects that are already committed to Southern Miss are scheduled to attend. Commitments from Alabama scheduled to be in attendance: Arsenio Favor (Stanhope-Elmore), David Fowler (Daphne), and Anthony Wilson (Homewood). Other out of state committed prospects expected in Hattiesburg include Cortez Bowen (Memphis, Tenn.) and Jeremy Hester (Panama City, Fla.) .
Both sides of the line are a priority for the Eagles and a visit from O.C. Brown (Memphis, Tenn.) is a big plus. The 6-foot-2, 300-pounder is widely considered one of the best OG's in the South. Other quality lineman expected include Jarred Flemming (East Central CC), Seth Reedy (Piedmont, Ala.) and Melvin Meggs (Petal, Miss.).
Unofficial visit weekends are also a great opportunity to get players that may be committed to other programs to take a look at your campus and program. Southern Miss is taking advantage of this and has several committed prospects on campus this weekend.
