Ole Miss gets verbal from top O-lineman

Ole Miss got another big football commitment on Wednesday when Callaway offensive guard Rod Taylor gave the Rebels his word.

The 6-foot-4, 305-pounder is the state’s top prospect, considered by many the top guard in the country.

Taylor, a 4-star, chose Ole Miss over national champion Alabama. The verbal moves Ole Miss to No. 10 in the Rivals team recruiting rankings. His teammates, wide receiver Dayall Harris and safety Ronald Walker, have already committed to the Rebels.

Ole Miss is also a finalist for Chargers’ defensive end Breeland Speaks, a 4-star prospect who said Wednesday he will choose between Ole Miss, Florida State and Arkansas
