Jonathan Mingo, star Ole Miss WR, makes decision on future football plans
Jonathan Mingo announced Tuesday morning that he would be forgoing his final year of eligibility at Ole Miss and entering the 2023 NFL Draft.
This is not too shocking of a development. Mingo was Ole Miss’ 2nd leading receiver this season behind Malik Heath, hauling in 861 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns. He has spent 4 years in Oxford and had 1 season of remaining eligibility via the Covid-19 waiver rule.
Of course, that’s a moot point now. Mingo made his announcement via his personal Twitter account Tuesday.

Mingo, who stands at 6-foot-2, 225 pounds, is the ideal size for a NFL receiver and is projected to be a 3-5 draft pick this upcoming season in a strong receiver class.
Ole Miss finished the season 8-5 following a Texas Bowl loss to Texas Tech.
