Ole Miss scores in 2011

Ole Miss is on the board in the 2011 class with a commitment from two-sport athlete Tyler Poole of Hickory (N.C.) High School.
"I went to the campus last year and just feel in love with the campus and the coaching staff," said Poole, a 6-foot-6, 200-pound small forward. "The new facilities for basketball and baseball are impressive as well."
A pitcher in baseball, Poole will be on a basketball scholarship while also playing baseball at Ole Miss. As things presently stand with the basketball roster, Poole will have an opportunity for early playing time.
"They want to use me as a freshman because they should be short at the three," he said. "I'm a shooter who can get to the rim and the free throw line."
Poole also considered South Carolina and North Carolina State.
