East Mississippi Community College quarterback Bo Wallace has given a verbal commitment to Ole Miss, web sites Scout and Rivals reported Tuesday evening.

Wallace (6-foot-4, 210) set community college records for passing yards (4,467) and touchdowns (53) in leading EMCC to the national championship.

He was redshirted during the 2010 season at Arkansas State – where new Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze was then offensive coordinator – before transferring. He will enroll in the spring and will have three years of eligibility remaining.

Wallace told Scout.com that his familiarity with the Freeze offense was a big reason he committed to the Rebels over Mississippi State. He believes that gives him an advantage in a competition for the starting job that presently includes returning quarterbacks Randall Mackey, Zack Stoudt and Barry Brunetti. All three started games last fall under former coach Houston Nutt.

Prior to Arkansas State, Wallace played for Giles County High School in Pulaski, Tenn.

You see Rebelrt, it's working. You are feeling sorry for me, instead of feeling sorry for yourself. Plus getting a few chuckles! That's what it's all about, dude!

The Dan the Man shirts went out after year one. The tshirt that's in vogue now, is the "3 PETE" or the "3 in a row shirt". I have printed up a "one for the pinky" and "one for the thumb" for the coming years.

"I know that many of you have at least chuckled at some of my comments."

Nah....well maybe a few, but most of the time we just feel sorry for you.

I like the Dan the WoMan name.....it's a mock of the "Dan the Man" t-shirts you guys sport around. I need to have one made with my slogan.

I don't even know what to say, except you don't get it! It's funny, it's comedy in writing. It's Saturday Night Live, except it's written "live".

It's Howard Stern, Paul Finebaum. It's to get more people involved in defending their school. It's not to be taken seriously. It's a diversion from the everyday BLAH, BLAH! C'mon it's good to have a vilian running rampant across NEMS 360. I love to be hated, baby! I am just trying to bring some laughter into this! I know that many of you have at least chuckled at some of my comments.

Judging by what I saw at the QB position(s) this year, I can't believe there will be a "battle". I wish Freeze and his team the best of luck in turning this ship around. My wishes are for him to put a competing, moral based team on the field and Ole Miss gains respect and wins some games.

@turfguy: Before reading this comment, first see my screen name - know this is coming from a long-time, season ticket holding State fan. I'm the type of State fan who roots against Ole Miss regardless of who they play - True Maroon, if you will. However, I completely understand why the likes of Ward and Wallace would choose to go to Ole Miss. They want to play now, not years down the road Yes, it's disappointing to lose recruits of that caliber to an arch-enemy, but we recruited both of them, so to say they're scraps says something bad about us, doesn't it? I'm glad to know our coaches go after talent that wants to make instant impact, not be satisfied as a 3rd stringer. As one State fan to another, please drop the numerous variations of Oxford derision. It makes the rest of the Maroon and White look bad.

Your comment "dr. dawg" is the most sensible since the DJ started providing this service. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but sometimes it's taken too far. Some purposely look at it as a means for retort to engage in back-and-forth jargon. All the name-calling and sarcastic comments are really just that person's view. But some take offense and an emotional reaction is probably the reason they resorted to such radical thinking.

Thank you Dr dawg you reflect my thoughts exactly but only in reverse as I am a rebel. This guy uses all of these made up names on here all the time and then talks about someone else for doing the same. He could get a job tomorrow in a washing machine factory cause he wants to be an agitator so bad .

I must agree with ts95, Wo Man is just stupid. It's hard to make fun of someone who has never lost to Oxfart College of Really Bad Made Up Names.

On the recruiting front Mstate is ranked 17th and ICE ICE baby, is 55th. I would say that it's working really well for....WoMan? just stupid.

I'm not a fan of Ole Miss, but I do understand why these players are committing there. Rather than stand on the sidelines as a second or third stringer, they have the opportunity to go and make an immediate impact. It's plain to see, they want to play right way. And despite whatever allegiance you honor, what if they turn this program around - their stock will increase 1000%. That's a big if but nothing's impossible unless one makes it that way.

Are you serious turf? You really need to quit eating that fungus growing on the cow crap. After Dan offered this kid a spot, and his high school coach begging him not to go anywhere else if he like MSMOO. Seriously.... Dan only got the recruits he has now because Ole Miss was in transition. How's that working out for ole Dan the WoMan now?

once again The Iceman gets Mullen's leftovers.

turfguy your comments get more insane every post. "The Iceman gets Mullen's leftovers." You can't expect anyone to buy this crap. It's strange that when Moo-U thinks they have a shot at these top recruits they really roll out the red carpet using helicoptors and no telling what else. Truth is they can't handle it when their bubble is busted so they pretend they never wanted or couldn't use the recruit. They would have sold the farm to get Ward, Gross, or Wallace. These boys are far from left-overs. These are the real deal for the REBELS!

The missing piece? What a great pickup for the Iceman.

Will Wallace become a Jedi Knight and slay the evil Rebelbear Killer, Dan Mullen? Giving hope to the lost empire of Oxfart. Will we find out that Bo Wallace is actually Dan Mullen's son?

Was there really ever any doubt? He gives The Rebelbears a shot at winning 4 games in 2012. Possibly upsetting Vandy to end the streak.
