OXFORD, Miss. - Always a big day of fall camp, fans weathered the humid and sticky conditions on the practice fields adjacent to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, to catch a glimpse of the Ole Miss football team in full pads during the team's fourth practice of the preseason, Tuesday.

Practice will again be open to the public Wednesday morning. One workout per day will continue to be open to the public through Saturday (August 10), and daily updates of practice locations will be available on Twitter at @OleMissFB. Visitors to campus on weekdays are reminded to make parking arrangements by going to www.olemiss.edu/parking, and fans are asked to watch practice from the north hillside and west side of the practice fields and not in between the fields. Cell phone and camera usage is strictly prohibited at practice. Wednesday evening's workout is closed.

"We finished a little better," head coach Hugh Freeze said. "We had to beg it out of the offense, but it was better. The redzone stuff, the offense should win most of that. They did fairly well in the `dirty ball period' where we had a lot of stuff coming at us. Donte (Moncrief) made a nice play, so they finished a little better.

"Early on the defense was really taking it to us. We are not coming out consistent enough. Early on we weren't taking care of the ball and moving the chains."

Members of the one of the nation's highly ranked recruiting classes are definitely getting the reps in practice, and Freeze likes what he sees so far.

"Laquon Treadwell had a good day. He's starting to understand things a little more, and we're going to slow it down it a little for him. When you're looking at him and Quincy (Adeboyejo) as having to play, it's tough on a young kid when you install something new every day. As they understand more, the confidence will get better. I think you saw that today with Laquon.

"DeVante (Kincade) is up and down. He's going to be a really good player, he's just so unsure about so many things. Some of it's not so much the routes, but the protection and how do I set it, what do I do with my back and when I do move the tight end. All those things slow him down and make him doubt himself. He and Ryan (Buchanan) both have a chance. Ryan made some good throws today. They're both very good players."

With the high-speed offensive attack Freeze likes to run, the Rebels are searching for more weapons in the backfield to go with leading returner Jeff Scott. With the loss of co-starter Randall Mackey to graduation, other guys will see plenty of action, including sophomores Jaylen Walton and I'Tavius Mathers.

"Jaylen and I'Tavius are a little ahead of the others, but Kailo (Moore), (Mark) Dodson and Jordan (Wilkins) are doing some good things. Kailo is doing some things that as you get into a game plan, you can use him in open space.

"Any guy that we can line up who we feel can be very multiple as to whether we're going to throw it or run it, that's our offense. We kind of see Kailo in that role, and Jeff can do that too."

Fans be sure to mark your calendars for the annual Meet The Rebels Day presented by Community Trust Bank, Aug. 17 at the IPF. Go to OleMissSports.com for details of the day's events.
