Big DT commits to Rebels

Ted Laurent (DT, Powder Springs, GA) - The 6' 1", 285 pound nose guard out of McEachern High committed to the Ole Miss Rebels Sunday night.

"I just committed to Ole Miss," added Ted Laurent. "I called Coach (Ryan) Mielsen tonight to let him know."

Why Ole Miss?

"I chose Ole Miss because of their business program and Coach Ed Orgeron's connection to great players like Warren Sapp. Coach O coached Sapp, and he is my favorite player. Ole Miss was just the perfect fit for me."

Which colleges offered Ted a scholarship before he decided on Ole Miss?

"Indiana, Auburn, Mississippi State, and Georgia Tech all gave me written scholarships. A few more told me I had a spot, but I never received anything in the mail."

Laurent earned All-County and All-State honors as a junior after recording 70 tackles (59 solos), 9 tackles for losses and 2 sacks.

Ted currently benches 335, squats 615, and power cleans 300.

He carries a 2.5 GPA

Ted marks Ole Miss' 12th public commitment.
