Ole Miss Basketball got a big time commitment from Virginia Tech transfer Sean Pedulla.

Under the guidance of the esteemed Ole Miss head coach, Chris Beard, the Rebels have consistently attracted top-tier transfers. This trend continued with the recent commitment of Virginia Tech transfer guard Sean Pedulla, a testament to Beard's ability to sell the vision of what the team wants to achieve.

Pedulla visited Oxford on April 21 and committed to the Rebels on April 24. Rumors circulated that he would visit Alabama after the Ole Miss visit. However, Beard worked magic to get Pedulla to commit to his home state, Oklahoma. The Junior has already changed his 'X' bio, tagging Ole Miss Basketball.

During the 2023-24 season, the 6-foot-1 junior averaged 16.4 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 4.6 assists in 32 games. Pedulla also averaged 32.5% in 3-point shooting and averaged 32.2 minutes per game.

Beard still needs to finish his work in the transfer portal. However, the players he has already brought in alongside what he still has on the roster are exciting for Rebel fans.

Oklahoma State Transfer Javon Small Recent Player to Visit Ole Miss

Coach Beard will look to tie up another commit from a recent visitor to Oxford. Oklahoma State transfer Javon Small visited the Ole Miss Campus on April 23.

Small, a member of the 2021 recruiting class, was not ranked according to the On3 Industry Rankings. He started his college career in East Carolina before transferring to Oklahoma State. As of April 25, Small is ranked the No. 7 overall player in the transfer portal per 247Sports.

This past season, the combo guard averaged 15.1 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game. Small also shot 37.4% from three-point range and 44.1% from the floor.

Ole Miss is in the mix for his commitment alongside Kentucky, Miami, and several other programs.
