OXFORD, Miss. — Any time Ole Miss defensive coordinator Pete Golding tweets a shark emoji, Rebel fans get excited as that is usually indicative of an upcoming commit.

The 6-foot-3, 305-pound Beavers is ranked the No. 4 player in the state of Mississippi as well as the No. 17 defensive lineman in the country according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
Beavers joins four-star defensive lineman Jeffery Rush (Pascagoula, Miss.), the No. 5-ranked player in the state according to the 247 Composite Rankings, as another high-profile defensive star from Mississippi who has committed to Golding and Ole Miss. This marks two of the state’s top five players who have committed to the Rebs.
Beavers picked Ole Miss over Alabama, Auburn, Mississippi State, LSU, A&M and others.
This past season, Beavers’ Bay Springs Bulldogs, who finished 14-1, won the MHSAA Class 1A Championship for the second year in a row. Beavers notched 52 tackles last year, with 13.5 for loss, as well as a sack and a forced fumble.
With new DC Golding moving the Rebels from a 3-4 defense to a 4-2-5, Beavers will have the opportunity to make his presence felt soon on the inside of the line.
Ole Miss is also pursuing standout defensive linemen Kamarion Franklin from Lake Cormorant, the state’s No. 1-ranked player according to the 247Sports Composite and Jamonta Waller from Picayune, Miss., the state’s No. 2-ranked player, so stay tuned for more info as it comes!
