Four-star wide receiver Jonathan Mingo signs with Ole Miss

Ole Miss picked up its next member of the “Nasty Wide Outs” as 4-star wide receiver Jonathan Mingo signed with the Rebels Wednesday morning at Brandon High School. Mingo, who committed to Ole Miss back on July 31, 2018, chose the Rebels over Mississippi State, Georgia, and Florida.

The 6-foot-2, 200-lb Mingo, An Under-Armour All-American, is the fifth wide receiver signee for the Rebels Class of 2019. According to the 247 Sports Composite Rankings, Mingo is the No. 12 prospect in the state of Mississippi and the No. 32 wide receiver in the nation.

Mingo also held scholarship offers from Notre Dame, Auburn, Arkansas and Oregon, to name a few, and was hotly pursued by Georgia up until his signing with the Rebels Wednesday. Mingo caught 77 passes for 1,451 yards as a senior at Brandon High School and also caught 14 touchdown passes.

Mingo will join other Ole Miss wide receiver commits Jadon Jackson, Dannis Jackson, Dontario Drummond, and Jordan Jernigan who turned in their letters during the December signing period.
