The exodus continues for Ole Miss, which is losing another one of its underclassmen.
As expected, safety Deontay Anderson has left the Rebels; he is headed to Houston and announced the decision on Twitter.

Anderson, a high-profile recruit when he signed with Ole Miss in 2016 from Manvel (Texas) High, starred during his freshman year with 32 tackles and an interception to earn a spot on the All-SEC freshman second team.
But he didn’t play this season, choosing to sit out, and reports began swirling in November that he was contemplating a transfer because he felt he had been “misled” about the university’s NCAA problems.
Though Anderson’s Ole Miss career appears over, he will go down in Rebels lore for at least one reason: The highest-altitude commitment video in school (and possibly college football) history.
