Just doing a little research on Alabama’s next opponent when I came across a nice story about a local making a big impact as a Rebel freshman. D.T. Shackelford, an Austin High School graduate, is enjoying his big year after flying under the recruiting radar.
Read more about his recruitment and first few games at Ole Miss by clicking here. You’ll read about the “Wild Man” nickname his teammates gave him.
It’s not all good news for the former Black Bear. Rebel coach Houston Nutt talked about injuries to Shackelford (sprained ankle) and teammate Andy Hartmann in his Monday news conference.
“They both jogged around a little bit better yesterday. I hope they get a little bit better by tomorrow. We will see how they practice. We are planning on both of those guys practicing. We will see how that goes. They are looking better. You just don’t know how close to full-speed they are. We planned on playing D.T. but he just couldn’t cut.”
