Ole Miss landed one of the premier prospects in the nation Wednesday, as offensive lineman Greg Little committed to the Rebels and head coach Hugh Freeze over Alabama and Texas A&M. 

From Allen, TX., Little is rated as the No. 1 player from the state of Texas and the No. 3 overall prospect in the country, according to Scout. Previously an Aggie commit, Little decommitted from A&M after a yearlong pledge to play with former Allen teammate and current Texas A&M quarterback Kyler Murray in College Station.

With Ole Miss likely to lose starting left tackle Laremy Tunsil as an early entrant to the 2016 NFL Draft, Little could be an ideal replacement in the starting lineup by next season’s opener against Florida State.
