Ole Miss gets commitment from North Texas transfer cornerback Deshawn Gaddie

OXFORD, Miss. —  The portal success continues for Lane Kiffin and the Rebels. North Texas transfer cornerback Deshawn Gaddie entered the portal Monday and on Friday committed to Ole Miss.

The First-Team All C-USA selection closed out his final season in Denton for the Mean Green with 62 tackles, 12 pass breakups, 2 forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery for the season.

During his career at North Texas, Gaddie he amassed 149 total tackles. He could be an instant impact player for the Rebels at a position of need.

Gaddie took to social media Friday to officially announced his commitment to the Rebs.

While he will most likely play corner, the 6-foot-1 Gaddie also has experience at the safety position.

Coming out of Lamar High School in Arlington, Texas, Gaddie was ranked as a 3-star and the overall No. 162 athlete in the Lone Star state as ranked by 247Sports.

He’s pretty good at track and field, too.

Thanks to the COVID rule he will arrive in Oxford with two seasons of eligibility remaining. Here’s just a small taste of what this future Rebel can bring to the field!
