Greg Hardy Returns to Rebels

Ole Miss Defensive End Greg Hardy says he's made his decision.

He will RETURN to the Rebels for his Senior Season.

Hardy, a former Briarcrest High star, had been contemplating leaving early for the NFL Draft...but limited play due to an injured foot this year helped put that decision on hold.

Today is the Deadline to enter.

His return bolsters what looks like a promising defensive squad for Ole Miss.

Hardy averaged a sack per game over the last two seasons, and can play both Defense and Offense..

The 6'4", 265-pounder can also playTight End.

Ole Miss Head Coach Houston Nutt says convincing Hardy to return is akin to a recruiting victory.

Nutt, himself, is up for the Bear Bryant College Coach of the Year award, which will be presented Thursday.

In his first year in Oxford, Nutt led the Rebels to a 9-and-4 Record and an upset of 7th ranked Texas Tech in the Cotton Bowl.
