Three-star quarterback Bubba Thompson told Al.com that he has de-committed from the Auburn baseball program. Thompson, out of McGill-Toolen High School in Mobile, Ala., was offered by Ole Miss in football on Oct. 26.

Thomspon said he now wants to play football and baseball in college.

"I want to play both sports in college or at least give it a shot," Thompson told AL.com. "I don't want to look back years down the road and regret not playing one. I've been blessed with some opportunities, and I just want to explore all of them."

The 6-2, 180-pound Thomspon is rated as the nation's No. 55 pro-style quarterback.

Ole Miss would like to add at least one more quarterback to its 2017 class to go along with Richmond (Va.) 3-star commit Alex Faniel. The Rebels are also pursuing some junior college QBs.

Tennessee, however, may be the odds-on favorite to land Thompson. He has visited Knoxville twice in the last month.
