Ole Miss adds three more commitments to 2019 class

Ole Miss’ recent run on commitments continued Thursday with a trio of in-state products.

Northeast Mississippi Community College linebacker Sam Williams, Charleston High defensive back Deantre Prince and Nanih Waiya Attendance Center (Louisville) offensive lineman Caleb Warren are the latest recruits to give verbal pledges to the Rebels, who are up to 17 commitments in their 2019 class. With Williams, Prince and Warren in the fold, Ole Miss’ class is ranked 14th nationally and seventh in the SEC in 247Sports.com’s composite rankings.

Williams, a consensus four-star prospect, chose Ole Miss over offers from Auburn, Tennessee, Oregon and others. He’s ranked as the nation’s No. 9 junior college prospect and the No. 3 weakside defensive end in the 247Sports composite, but the 6-foot-4, 250-pounder could also play linebacker, where he had 53 tackles, 3.5 sacks and two forced fumbles for NEMCC as a freshman last season.

Prince is a three-star prospect ranked as the nation’s No. 35 athlete and the 17th-best recruit in Mississippi in the 247Sports composite. The 6-1, 160-pounder, who’s projected to play cornerback at the next level, is the Rebels’ fourth defensive back commitment after choosing Ole Miss over offers from Georgia and Michigan among others.

Warren is the fourth offensive linemen in the class and the third to commit to the Rebels in the last week, joining Sacred Heart-Griffin High (Illinois) tackle Nick Broeker and Buford High (Georgia) tackle Carter Colquitt. The 6-4, 305-pound Warren projects as a guard in college, giving Ole Miss two (Harrison Central guard Bryce Ramsey) at that position in the class.
