Ole Miss Football: Three-Star Signee Arrested, Jailed For Burglary

The poor are getting poorer. It’s not just raining on the Ole Miss football program these days, bearded men build arcs for the kind of downpour they’re weathering.

Days after self-imposing a postseason ban in response to the NCAA’s allegations of violations, the Rebels got some more bad news today.

Tae-Kion Reed, a three-star member of the 2017 Ole Miss recruiting class, was arrested and charged with burglary.

Reed remains jailed in Lowndes County. Exact details of the burglary remain undisclosed, but by all accounts it appears the crime was committed when he broke into a private residence.

It remains unclear how Ole Miss will respond to the incident, the only comment they have made is that they “gather facts on the matter.”

Reed made headlines on National Signing Day when he decided to flip his commitment from Mississippi State to Ole Miss in spectacular (and fairly disrespectful) fashion. Rather than making an announcement, he first grabbed a Bulldogs hat and threw it across the room before placing an Ole Miss hat on his head.

For his sake, lets hope the judge who he will have to appear in front of isn’t a Bulldogs fan, or it might be a long stay for the big fella.
