Nation’s top OL prospect commits to Rebels

Ole Miss may have found its replacement for Laremy Tunsil.

Allen (Texas) offensive tackle Greg Little, the consensus No. 1 prep offensive lineman in the country, committed to Ole Miss on Wednesday. The 6-foot-5, 315-pound Little chose the Rebels over Texas A&M, Alabama, Auburn and LSU among many others.

Little originally committed to Texas A&M last June but eventually decommitted before pulling the trigger for Ole Miss. Little reportedly set a date to commit last month but delayed his decision until releasing a video on Bleacher Report on Wednesday announcing his commitment to Ole Miss.

Little, a consensus five-star prospect, is ranked among the nation’s top four overall prospects by every major recruiting site and could immediately take over at left tackle for the Rebels should Tunsil forego his senior season and declare for the NFL draft. Tunsil hasn’t made that decision yet, though he’s widely projected to be a top-10 pick in next year’s draft.

Little is the 20th commitment for the Rebels’ 2016 recruiting class and the second five-star pledge, joining IMG Academy quarterback Shea Patterson. The class is ranked No. 1 nationally by Rivals.com and No. 3 by Scout.com and 247Sports.com.

Little was the second commitment in as many days for Ole Miss, which picked up a verbal pledge from East Coast Prep (Great Barrington, Massachusetts) cornerback Myles Hartsfield on Tuesday.
