Manvel safety Deontay Anderson picks Ole Miss over Texas and LSU

Posted February 3rd, 2016


Manvel safety Deontay Anderson, the No. 5 player in the American-Statesman’s Fab 55, committed to Ole Miss over LSU and Texas on signing day.

Anderson used a unique method to announce his decision.

This was not not a surprise as Texas was never believed to be the favorite for Anderson, who is among 11 players at Manvel who are heading off to Bowl Subdivision schools. One of them, wide receiver Reggie Hemphill-Mapps, was the first commitment in Texas’ class.

By landing Anderson, Ole Miss continued its impressive haul of top Texas players. Also signing with the Rebels is Allen offensive tackle Greg Little, the state’s top player.
