Gregory Little, 5-star offensive tackle from Allen, TX (Allen High School), saw his future in the clouds, and that future will be with the Ole Miss Rebels.
Little (6’6”, 282 pounds), is ranked as the top offensive tackle in the 2016 class, according to the industry generated 247Sports Composite, and announced his decision via a hype video from Bleacher Report. It looked a little something like this:

Without a doubt, this is a huge commitment for Ole Miss, which knows a thing or two about landing top offensive tackle recruits. Former 5-star offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil was the No. 1 offensive tackle in the 2013 class, according to the 247Sports Composite, and he also picked Ole Miss. He’s now likely on his way to a career in the NFL.
Little will be coming in with that kind of hype, not just at his position, but nationally. Per the composite, he’s also the No. 2 overall 2016 recruit, only behind 5-star defensive tackle Rashan Gary.
Not surprisingly, a ton of schools were after Little’s commitment, but the Rebels mainly beat out Alabama, LSU and Georgia for the 5-star’s commitment. Other schools of note that had offered were Auburn, Baylor, Florida, Clemson, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon and USC among others, though.
Ole Miss’ 2016 class now has 20 commits and is ranked No. 3 nationally.
