All three Rebels were named second team All-America at the Home Depot College Football Awards Thursday evening.
One year after Senquez Golson was tabbed the Rebels’ first Walter Camp All-American since 2008, Ole Miss landed three to this year’s team, tied for the second-most nationally by one school.
