[HT: BeardedGinger for the write up. Definitely a big pick up for the Rebels, especially considering the recent loss of Marquel Combs due to academic ineligibility.]
The Rebels got a big time commitment when 6'3" 305 pound Darious Cummings committed to Ole Miss on Sunday morning after taking his official visit this weekend. The former Florida State player currently plays at East Mississippi CC where he leads the team in sacks and tackles for loss.
Before EMCC, he played in 3 games as a true freshman for Florida State. Coming out of high school, Darious was a 4 star recruit on both Scout (18 overall DT) and Rivals (11 overall DT). He is currently not ranked on Scout or Rivals, but those rankings will come out later since he is a JUCO player.
With Gilbert Pena and Uriah Grant graduating, he should earn immeadiate playing time. This is a big time pick up for the Rebels as pass rushing defensive tackle is a huge need for this rebuilding program.
