It’s been a rough few days for Ole Miss with the NCAA handing the school’s football program additional sanctions, but one prospect’s announcement just made life a little better for Rebels fans.

Three-star safety Tavario Standifer committed to the Rebels’ 2019 class on Monday, announcing his decision on Twitter:

Standifer (6-2, 195 pounds) plays for Tupelo (Miss.) High. He’s the second 2019 prospect from the school to commit to the Rebels in just over a week, following wide receiver Jordan Jernigan’s commitment on November 26.

Ole Miss was the only Power Five school to offer Standifer up to this point, although he did have offers from bowl-bound programs including Memphis and Arkansas State.

With Standifer’s commitment, Ole Miss now has three players lined up for the 2019 class, including Jernigan and three-star defensive end Jamond Gordon of Meridian (Miss.) High. The NCAA’s bowl ban against the school, announced last Friday, ends after the 2018 season, so these 2019 recruits would have the opportunity for postseason football all four years if the Rebels qualify.
