2023 top 90 recruit and top 15 point guard Josh Hubbard has reopened his recruitment and decommitted from the Ole Miss Rebels. This announcement comes after the program fired Head Coach Kermit Davis following another disappointing season. Hubbard was released from his commitment and his NIL deals. Hubbard is the number one 2023 recruit in the state of Mississippi. He is also the all-time leading scorer in Mississippi high school history. Ole Miss also lost the commitment of four-star center Rashaud Marshall after Davis was fired by the program. With no Head Coach hired yet, getting them back will prove difficult.

With the departure of Josh Hubbard and Rashaud Marshall, the Ole Miss Rebels only have two players signed for next season. A three-star recruit and an unranked recruit with the three-star recruit still considering his options after he completes his final high school basketball season. With no players signed in future classes, the program’s next Head Coach will have a lot of work to do when they are hired.
Before he committed to the Ole Miss Rebels, Josh Hubbard was also seriously considering the Mississippi State Bulldogs. He also held offers from the LSU Tigers, Georgetown Hoyas, Houston Couagrs, and some other programs. He will likely find most of those programs and maybe a few more interested in his recruitment now that he is once again able to sign with another program.
