Jeremy Liggins set for Ole Miss

It already seemed like a done deal, but Jeremy Liggins' switch to his hometown team Ole Miss is official now.

Anthony Hart, the 2012 quarterback's coach at Lafayette High School in Oxford, Miss., confirmed that Liggins had switched his commitment from LSU to Ole Miss this semester while he waited to qualify academically.

Hart said Liggins made the decision back in August when he decided to leave Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College and return home.

"I'm not sure where all the talk about this is coming from, because I thought this had all happened months ago," Hart said. "It was pretty much decided when he left Mississippi Gulf Coast that he was going to try to qualify with Ole Miss."

Liggins has been in Oxford taking community college classes to earn eligibility with the Rebels for next semester. If he is successful he'll enroll in January for spring football.

LSU addressed its quarterback needs by adding Penn State transfer Rob Bolden when Liggins didn't qualify in August. The Tigers also have a pair of ESPN 300 signal-callers, Hayden Rettig (Los Angeles/Cathedral) and Anthony Jennings (Marietta, Ga.), committed for 2013.
