OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss baseball program continued to add to its crop of athletes for the 2012 season with the announcement of Auston Bousfield, Sikes Orvis and Casey Mulholland to the class, head coach Mike Bianco announced on Friday.

The three athletes join Hawtin Buchanan, Dylan Chavez, Chris Ellis, Ryan Hornback, Will Jamison, Josh Laxer, Jake Overbey, Michael Reed, Chase Reeves and Tyler Roach. The members of the 2010-11 signing class will join the Rebels for the 2011-12 academic year.

“We’re very excited about Sikes, Auston and Casey,” said Ole Miss assistant coach and recruiting coordinator Carl Lafferty. “They come from great high schools, but also a great summer baseball program in the Orlando Scorpions. They are familiar with each other and competing together, and we look forward to getting them on campus and out on the baseball field.”

Bousfield, a 5-11 outfielder, signs with the Rebels out of West Orange High School in Oakland, Fla., where he helped his team advance to the Regional Finals of the state playoffs in class 6A last season. He has competed with the Orlando Scorpions summer team alongside current Rebels Will Allen and Austin Anderson and future Rebels Mulholland and Orvis.

Orvis, a 6-2 left-handed first baseman, signs with Ole Miss out of Freedom High School in the Orlando, Fla., area as well where he helped his team advance to the second round of the state playoffs in class 6A last season.

The pair helped the Orlando Scorpions summer team claim the 2009 Perfect Game/WWBA Underclass World Championship.

Mulholland reaffirms his previous commitment to play baseball for the Rebels after signing his original letter of intent as a part of the 2010 signing class. The 6-3 right-handed hurler and outfielder comes to the Rebels from The Pendleton School in Bradenton, Florida. He was ranked as one of the nation’s Top 100 players by both Perfect Game and Baseball America.

He had Tommy John surgery last spring and has gone through rehab in the time since the March surgery.

The right-hander posted a 6-0 record with a 1.39 ERA in the 2009 season as he struck out 73 batters and walked only 10 in his 40.2 innings of work. He also hit well, batting .355 with five doubles, three triples and eight RBI as he helped his high school to a 29-1 record and final ranking of seventh nationally.

Mulholland was selected to play in the Under Armour All-America game in the summer of 2009.
