Hugh Freeze and the Ole Miss Rebels have picked up a major commitment along the defensive front. Four-star defensive end Bryan Jones, the 11th-ranked defensive end in the Class of 2017 from Madison Prep Academy in Baton Rouge, announced his decision to commit to Ole Miss.
Jones made the announcement on social media.

Jones chose Ole Miss over other offers from schools like Texas, Texas A&M, Tennessee and USC.
The Louisiana native will join the SEC as a member of the Class of 2017. With the losses to the NFL Draft, specifically the departure of star defensive end Robert Nkemdiche, Jones could find himself called on sooner rather than later as a key piece of the Rebels defense.
