Freeze searches for depth on Ole Miss roster
OXFORD, Ms. - Quarterback Bo Wallace tossed a football up and down on the sidelines. Receiver Donte Moncrief stood holding his helmet, offering encouragement to teammates.
Mississippi's annual Grove Bowl wasn't about watching the team's stars on Saturday. Instead, it was one more opportunity for second-year coach Hugh Freeze to find more depth as the Rebels attempt to improve on last year's 7-6 record and become a consistent contender in the Southeastern Conference.
Linebacker Serderius Bryant picked off a pass and returned it 75 yards for a touchdown while Ja-Mes Logan caught five passes for 101 yards in Saturday's workout.
Several key players didn't play because of injuries, including Wallace, Moncrief, cornerback Charles Sawyer and defensive end C.J. Johnson. All four are expected to be back by preseason practice in August.
