Ole Miss added the highest-rated commitment of its 2020 football recruiting class on Tuesday, as four-star defensive back Eric Reed pledged to the Rebels.
“I’m excited to say that I am 100% committed to The University of Mississippi,” Reed tweeted.
Ranked as the nation’s No. 16 safety in the 247Sports Composite index and the No. 7 prospect in Louisiana, Reed (6-foot-1, 197) is more likely to play cornerback in college.
Reed, a rising senior at Calvary Baptist Academy, picked Ole Miss over a a batch of other offers, from programs including LSU, Notre Dame and Southern Miss.
