Offensive lineman Timi Gagophien commits to Ole Miss

Talented Gagophien brings more size, agility to the Rebs’ O-line

OXFORD, Miss. — Offensive lineman Timi Gagophien (Houston, TX) becomes the third class of 2022 commit in as many days to hop on the Lane Train at Ole Miss, pledging to the Rebels on Sunday via his Twitter. 

The talented, 6-foot-6-inch, 290-pound Gagophien is a three-star (for now) tackle who plays for Alief Hastings High School. He’s ranked the No. 61 tackle in the nation, according to the 247Sports Composite.

He chose the Rebels over Tennessee, Houston, Arkansas State, ULL, Louisiana Tech, Tulane, and others.

The Rebel Walk spoke with Gagophien about his decision to choose the Rebels.

Ole Miss is a great place. The coaches and everything about Ole Miss are what called my heart. It just felt like the right thing to do. Go Rebels!”  

Timi Gagophien on why he chose Ole Miss

Here’s what Gabe Brooks at 247Sports has to say about Gagophien:

The 6-foot-6, 290-pound Gagophien is one of the more promising offensive linemen to emerge lately in the Lone Star State. He owns the requisite frame for a tackle spot with the play style and block-finishing demeanor of a big guard. Gagophien, who played right tackle as a junior for his Houston-area Class 6A program, is nimble enough in 1-on-1 situations on the outside that he can likely stay at tackle in college.

Brooks also believes we will see a jump from Gagophien in the rankings. “Gagophien is an O-lineman who could very well continue to rise in the rankings with the proper vetting on the camp circuit,” he said, “especially with valuable athletic context in the testing category.”

Here are some highlights of Gagophien’s junior season:

Where the Rebs stand now

With today’s commit from Gagophien, along with commits from Preston Cushman Saturday and Friday’s pledge from defensive end Jacarius Clayton, Ole Miss now stands at nine verbal commits for the class of 2022.
