OXFORD, Miss. – Ole Miss head football coach Hugh Freeze continues his hot start on the recruiting trail, receiving a national letter of intent Thursday from Bo Wallace, a quarterback from East Mississippi Community College.

The 6-foot-5, 210-pounder will enroll at Ole Miss for the spring semester and begin competing in the 2012 season with three years of eligibility remaining.

“It shows the momentum we are gaining in recruiting to sign a player as highly sought after as Bo,” Freeze said. “Bo and I have a relationship that goes back several years. It’s exciting to see how far he has come as a player and person, and I’m looking forward to getting him on campus.”

In 2010, Freeze was the offensive coordinator/QBs coach at Arkansas State, and Wallace was a freshman for the Red Wolves. Wallace redshirted that season before embarking on a record-setting season at East Mississippi.

Wallace led EMCC to a 12-0 record and the 2011 NJCAA national championship while setting NJCAA single-season records for passing yards (4,604), total yards (4,810) and touchdown passes (53). The First Team All-American became the first freshman to win National Offensive Player of the Year honors since 2004.

Wallace also experienced success at the prep level, leading Giles High School to a state title and a 14-game winning streak. The Tennessean 2009 Player of the Year, Wallace established a state record for total offense (4,195) and finished top-five in state history in total touchdowns (47), passing touchdowns (37) and passing yards (3,287) as a senior.

He finished his career with 8,778 yards of total offense and 6,395 passing yards, which ranked fifth and seventh all-time in the state, respectively.
