Eulls set to take in Ole Miss scrimmage

The Kaleb Eulls spring travel tour is set to resume this weekend.

The four-star defensive end/whatever-you-need-him-to-play prospect has already attended junior days at Alabama, Mississippi State and Southern Mississippi.

On Saturday, he'll make the two-hour drive north to check out Ole Miss, a program that has pursued him vigorously over the past year.

"I'm going to visit and see the school and the coaches and get to know them better and get to talk to them eye-to-eye," Eulls said Wednesday night. I'm looking at Ole Miss to see how comfortable I feel there, how the environment is. I want to see which college makes me feel at home and like I'm wanted."

Ole Miss will scrimmage for the first time this spring on Saturday morning. The Rebels' plan is to practice on the practice fields for an hour before moving inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium for the scrimmage. Eulls, a 6-foot-4, 245-pounder who is currently ranked as the No. 2 prospect in Mississippi by Rivals.com, said he's interested in seeing how the Rebels use their defensive linemen and how the squad looks. He's more interested, however, in talking to Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt in person.

"The very first time I talked to him, he offered me on the phone," Eulls said. "That was good. I got a chance to talk to him at school and get an update on the school and the program and what they're trying to do."

Eulls, who has scholarship offers from Ole Miss, LSU and all of the schools he's previously visited, said he has no leader at this point.

"They all stand out because I had a chance to see the coaching staffs, the faculties and the environment and the programs they have," Eulls said. "I think I'm going to go close to signing day before I decide."

Eulls said he's enjoying the process, particularly the time he's gotten to spend with head coaches such as Dan Mullen, Nick Saban and Larry Fedora. On Saturday, Nutt will get his chance to make a favorable impression.

"To me, that's awesome, because I'm sure anybody that plays a high school sport would love to get that chance to talk one-on-one with these college head coaches," Eulls said. "It's been a lot of fun so far."
