Remember that guy who chucked a State hat across the room on Signing Day? He’s been chucked from the team.

As first reported by Antonio Morales of The Clarion-Ledger, 2017 Ole Miss defensive line signee Tae-Kion Reed has been released from his letter of intent after being arrested on Tuesday for allegedly breaking into a home and stealing guns. He was released from jail Wednesday morning after attempting to burglarize a home, according to Lowndes County (Ga.) Sheriff's Department Detective Capt. Ryan Rickert.

You may remember Reed as the guy who chucked a Mississippi State hat across the room while making his college choice on National Signing Day.

So what does this mean for the Rebels? Not much. Most believed that the 6’4, 295-pound Reed was going to be a sign-and-place candidate anyway, so it was going to be at least a year before he was donning the red and blue. But with Fadol Brown, D.J. Jones and John Youngblood gone, Ole Miss faces a potential shortage of depth on the D-line.

The real issue here is what this means for Tae-Kion Reed, who was already a lightly-recruited prospect. Maybe he'll pan out elsewhere, but you won’t be seeing him in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium as a Rebel.
