Matt Corral makes big announcement ahead of Ole Miss home finale
Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral appeared to make a significant announcement about his future ahead of Saturday’s home finale.
The junior quarterback posted that Saturday’s game against Vanderbilt would be “my final game” at Vaught Hemingway Stadium. He also paid tribute to his coaches and Ole Miss fans, appearing to confirm that he will enter the NFL Draft at the end of the season.
Ole Miss Forever.

The implication doesn’t come as a huge surprise. Corral is considered a potential top ten pick, and has a real shot at being the first quarterback off the board next April.
Corral was originally set to attend Florida before switching his commitment. It certainly looks like it worked out for him. The Rebels will win at least ten games if they win out in the regular season, and Corral’s draft stock remains high.
