Jay Stanley did not need long in the NCAA transfer portal to find his new home.

A day after entering the portal, the departing Ole Miss defensive back announced his commitment to Southern Miss.

As a freshman, Stanley played in nine game games, recording 20 tackles and a pass deflection. This past season, he logged six tackles and a pass deflection in six games.

Out of Brandon High School in Mississippi, Stanley was a former 3-star prospect in the class of 2019, committing to Matt Luke’s Ole Miss program on June 24, 2018.
