Future Rebel in place: 2019 DE Jamond Gordon commits to Ole Miss

Jamond Gordon.

Ole Miss faces a lot of uncertainty about its future, but the Rebels have at least one piece lined up for the 2019 recruiting class.

Three-star defensive end Jamond Gordon committed to the Rebels on Tuesday night, announcing his decision on Twitter.

Gordon (6 feet 4, 265 pounds) attends Meridian (Miss.) High, about 140 miles southeast of Oxford. He selected the Rebels over offers from Tennessee and Southern Miss. He is considered one of the nation’s top 50 weakside ends for the 2019 class.

Gordon committed to the Rebels even though it is far from clear who will be coaching the program by the time he enrolls. The Rebels currently are led by interim coach Matt Luke, who took over before the season following the dismissal of Hugh Freeze.

Gordon becomes the first Ole Miss pledge in the 2019 class. His announcement means that just two SEC programs, Missouri and Vanderbilt, have yet to pick up a commitment for 2019.
