The Rebels made the cut and now look to outlast their tough SEC counterparts in Texas A&M, Arkansas, Florida, Alabama and Tennessee.
The 6-foot-2, 175-pound Pride out of Blountstown High School in Florida ranks as the overall No.84 recruit in the nation in 2024, as well as the No. 6 safety and No. 18 player to come out of the Sunshine state.
Pride, once a Florida State commit, reopened his recruitment this past April. The Gators have been putting in the work to keep him at home and in the orange and blue. But as is often the case, it really appears to be anyone’s game.

With the arrival of defensive coordinator Pete Golding from Alabama, the Rebels are staying on the mind of many of the nation’s top defensive athletes, and from the looks of things, Ole Miss has made an impression on Pride.
Pride is a year-round athlete who also plays baseball, basketball and runs track and field, making him both versatile and talented. He possesses great instinct on reads, and his speed and quick reactions help him quickly shut down opposing receivers.
With continued work this off season heading into his senior season, expect Pride to be even more powerful on defense as he develops and progresses.
