Cummings commits

East Mississippi Community College Defensive Tackle Darious Cummings didn't know much about Ole Miss until teammate Nick Brassell started filling in the blanks. Darious investigated the scene, fell in love with Ole Miss and committed Sunday morning.

Darious Cummings was making good use his time at East Mississippi Community College as one of their leaders in QB sacks and tackles for loss as a defensive tackle.

The former Florida State signee/player was contemplating where he would spend the next two years when his teammate, Snoop Brassell, approached him about checking out Ole Miss.

"I didn't know much about Ole Miss, but Snoop kept telling me it was a great place," said Cummings, who was also offered by Texas A&M, Mississippi State, Arkansas and Florida, "but once I went up there and met the coaches and players, I fell in love with the place."

"I committed this morning."

The 6-3, 300-pounder will be a mid-year signee. He will be here for second semester and spring practice then have two years to play two.

"I looked at the depth chart and saw Gilbert Pena and Uriah Grant will be graduating. I saw an opening for playing time," he continued. "Also, when I watched Ole Miss play, I noticed they rotate guys quite a bit to keep everyone fresh and I like that."

Cummings said he was also swayed by DL Coach Chris Kiffin's pedigree.

"Coach Kiffin knows his stuff. He's been taught by the best and I think he is a rising star of DL coaching," Cummings noted.

The Titusville, FL, native is excited about his decision and the future of Ole Miss football.

"That game yesterday was very exciting. I love how hard Ole Miss plays and I can see where I can help them win," he closed. "I am finished with recruiting. I know where my heart is and I know where I will be the next two years."
