Ole Miss Football: Matt Luke and Rebels add another commit

The 2020 Ole Miss football recruiting class has been adding up and coach Matt Luke and his staff added another solid commitment Saturday.

While the jury may still be out on the quality of the 2020 Ole Miss football recruiting class, there is no doubt it has heated up for head coach Matt Luke. In the span of less than two weeks the Rebels have added ten commitments to the 2020 class and may just be getting started. The latest commitment came Saturday.

Saturdays commitment puts the 2020 recruiting class at 14 future Rebels and ranks No.20 nationally. The class also ranks No.9 in the SEC. Saturdays commitment marks the sixth defensive commitment and shows head coach Matt Luke and defensive coordinator Mike MacIntyre are looking to build in the new 3-4 defense. Saturdays commitment also marks the sixth out-of-state player to commit to Matt Luke and the Rebels.

Meet Cedric Johnson

Cedric Johnson of WP Davidson out of Mobile, Alabama is rated as a 3* WDE. Johnson has a 247 Sports Composite of 0.8499 and is listed at 6’3 and 225 lbs. Johnson, who was recruited by Jeff Koonz, also holds offers from Tennessee, Kansas, Florida Atlantic and Southern Miss among others.

Current Commit List

Johnson joins 13 other players who have already committed to coach Matt Luke and the Rebels. Here is the current commit list for the 2020 Ole Miss football recruiting class.

While some Ole Miss football fans look at the list and don’t see it full of 5* and 4* players the numbers are there. By the time NSD gets here many of the above players will see their 247Sports Composite increase and stars will likely go up. For now, it is apparent coach Matt Luke and his staff are staying busy and any player who decides to be a Rebel is something we should all be excited about. Hotty Toddy!
