Dion enrolled at MS Gulf Coast CC and had a solid freshman campaign as he collected 44 tackles and 6 sacks.
Ole Miss, LSU, Oklahoma State, MSU, and USM all offered Dion the second time around
but he choose to recommit to the college he signed with out of high school, the
University of Mississippi.
Is Gales still solid with the Rebels?
I visited Ole Miss a few times and it is just a nice scenery for me. I come from
the hood (in New Orleans). I just think Ole Miss is the right environment for
me to further my career both on the (football) field and the classroom. And besides,
having a head coach that has coached all of those players that went to the league,
what better situation could I ask for?" added Dion Gales.
offered by Michigan, Michigan State, Miami, LSU, FSU, Florida, Colorado, West Virginia, Clemson, Illinois, Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Tennessee before
the start of his senior year season.

LSU, OSU, MSU, and USM before he committed to Ole Miss in February; are any of

(laugh), LSU and MSU are still on me pretty good, especially LSU. They write and
call me all of the time. It is all good."
One of Dion's goals going

"Not really (laugh). I am up to 287 now. I have put
on about 15 pounds, but I have kept my speed. We were actually timed in the 40
the first day we started back (spring) practice. I ran a 4.81 (forty). But, I
am a lot stronger now. We have a strength competition on our team, and I placed
second. I feel real good right now. I probably am not going to get that 4.5 speed
back, like I had in high school, but I feel like I am plenty fast and strong enough
to make an impact on any level."
How are Dion's classes coming along?
I will most definitely graduate in December."
Dion Gales stays strong with Ole Miss
