11:34 a.m. – Ole Miss announces that three-star defensive lineman Tae-kion Reed (Columbus) has signed with Ole Miss. He flipped from Mississippi State this morning.

Noon- D.D. Bowie has committed to Ole Miss. He is a four-star receiver from Morton who had been committed for the Rebels for more than a year, but Mississippi State made a late push at him. In the end, Bowie stuck with his commitment and is a big addition to this class.

1:32 p.m. Ole Miss announces that three-star offensive lineman Tony Gray has signed with the Rebels. With Larrell Murchison delaying his announcement a few days, this should round out today’s signees.
