Jonathan Cornell commits to Ole Miss

Jonathan Cornell (LB, La Puente, CA) -'s #23 nationally rated linebacker committed to the Rebels yesterday, but didn't announce until today. The Rebels keep rolling with one major commitment after another. Cornell and Kentrell Lockett committed on the same day after weeks of speculation and anticipation.

"I called Coach Orgeron today and told him I am coming. I am going to sign with Ole Miss," commented Jonathan Cornell.

And why did he pick Ole Miss over his home state schools, USC and UCLA?

"I just felt really at home when I went on my visit to Ole Miss, and me and Coach Orgeron have just built a close bond. I do not know. I just feel real comfortable around the Ole Miss staff. It's also because they play in the SEC and it was different than what I am used to. I also love their facilities."

The 4 Star LB participated in the CA/FL All-Star game and had over 100 tackles and 8 sacks on the season.

Jonathan picked Ole Miss over UCLA, USC, Arizona State, and Oregon. All five schools offered.
