Ole Miss reaches into Tennessee, lands four-star OL Bryce Mathews
The 2016 Ole Miss recruiting class is shaping up nicely as the Rebels have added yet another four-star prospect with the commitment of 6-foot-5, 280-pound offensive lineman Bryce Mathews.
Mathews is regarded as one of the top prospects in the Volunteer State, according to 247Sports, and chose the Rebels over Clemson, Texas A&M, where his father played, and Tennessee, where his teammate and fellow 2016 prospect Ryan Johnson is currently committed.
"I decided I'm going with Ole Miss," Mathews told 247Sports. "The first time I went there I was really drawn by what the coaches were saying. I felt a great connection with the coaches. I loved the town. It's a great town with the square. I felt like a lot of signs were pointing me there."
The Brentwood, Tenn., prospect is also excited for the opportunity to play with two high school teammates that have decided to walk on at Ole Miss.
"I can go play with those guys and being able to play with them would be a great experience," Mathews continued. "Playing in the SEC is a great deal. Being able to play where my family can see me often would be a really cool thing, too."
The Rebels now have 18 commitments lined up in their 2016 recruiting class, which is regarded as one of the best in the nation. With the addition of Mathews, their ranking is surely only going to continue to rise.
