Memphis University School's Gary Wunderlich - yes, his name is the same as the intelligence test given to NFL prospects - dropped his Virginia commitment for Hugh Freeze's Ole Miss Rebels earlier this morning. Aside from Ole Miss and Virginia, also had an offer from Texas A&M.

Wunderlich is an Under Armour All American selection, and rated as the top high school kicker in the country by 247Sports' composite rankings. He kicks field goals, punts, and is the kickoff specialist for the MUS Owls, and is a BCS level prospect in all three skillsets. His Hudl highlights show him demonstrating both power and accuracy with his field goal kicking, as well as distance and hang time for his kickoffs and punts. Having skilled specialists cannot be overstated as a key part to any football program's success, and Wunderlich certainly looks the part.

This commitment marks the 21st commitment in the 2014 Ole Miss class.
