The success on the recruiting trail for Ole Miss continued in a big way for the second straight day.
After flipping 4-star WR Dannis Jackson away from Mississippi State, Ole Miss wasn’t finished adding talented players to the already deep room of receivers in Oxford. Hailing from Brandon, 4-star WR Jonathan Mingo has confirmed his commitment to the Rebels over Arkansas, Auburn, MSU, and others.

WR Coach Jacob Peeler has been busy on the recruiting trail, and after the announcement, he was clearly enthralled with the latest addition to the group of “Nasty Wide Outs” at Ole Miss.

Mingo is 6’2 and weighs around 200 pounds, and in 2017, he totaled 775 receiving yards with 6 touchdowns on 53 catches.
The Rebels’ 2019 class now has 27 total commits, and Mingo becomes the fourth wide receiver. Another position of note has become the offensive line. Matt Luke, the former OL coach turned head coach, clearly wants to make sure he’s got a solid foundation to work with as Greg Little, Javon Patterson and other starters round out their time at Ole Miss.
With that being said, the Rebels picked up a big commitment from 4-star OL Darius Thomas out of Jonesboro, Arkansas. Thomas becomes the highest rated OL commit in the class so far, and at 6’6 and 332 pounds, he is sure to bolster the line for the red and blue.

Thomas is the 3rd highest rated player at any position in the state of Arkansas, and he chose Ole Miss over Texas, Georgia, LSU, MSU and several others.
With the recent additions to their 2019 class, the Rebels now rank 11th in the county and 5th in the SEC, according to 24/7 Sports.
