Ole Miss WR Tre Harris has high hopes for the pivotal 2024 season

Can Ole Miss Rebels wide receiver Tre Harris have another electric year in Oxford? That seems to be the expectation going into the 2024 campaign.

The Rebels are among the betting favorites to reach the newly expanded College Football Playoff this season, and Harris will play a key role in the team’s success should it reach that level. Despite some injury issues in 2023, the wideout racked up 54 receptions for 985 yards and eight scores.

Recently, Dalton Wasserman of Pro Football Focus shared his expectations for Harris’ second year at Ole Miss, and he wasn’t kidding.

“I wouldn’t be shocked if he’s the best receiver in the SEC this season,” Wasserman said on PFF’s College Football Show.

That’s some high praise for a receiver entering his second season in the Southeastern Conference, but Harris’ 985 receiving yards were good for fifth in the league a year ago.

Harris came to Ole Miss through the transfer portal prior to last season after previously suiting up for the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs. He quickly became the favorite target of Rebels quarterback Jaxson Dart and scored a program record four touchdowns in the season opener against the Mercer Bears at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

He will be surrounded by a talented cast of characters in the wide receiver room this year, including the returning Jordan Watkins and new addition Antwane “Juice” Wells who has transferred from South Carolina.

Ole Miss opens its season at home against the FCS Furman Paladins on August 31.
