M.J. Daniels, Ole Miss DB in the transfer portal, announces decision
M.J. Daniels quickly reversed course after the Ole Miss defensive back entered the transfer portal over the weekend.
Daniels, who recorded 2 tackles in 5 games during his freshman season at Ole Miss, wrote on Twitter, “I’m withdrawing my name from the transfer portal and staying at Ole Miss.”
The 6-foot-1, 210-pound safety exited high school as a 3-star prospect and ranked as the nation’s No. 26 overall athlete, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings. Ole Miss has now had 16 players enter the transfer portal after he removed his name from the portal.
Daniels was rated as the nation’s No. 9 athlete and the No. 4 overall player in the state of Mississippi’s 2021 class by the 247Sports rankings. He also held offers from Mississippi State, Arkansas and Auburn, among others, according to 247Sports.
The Lucedale native was a major signing day win for the Rebels’ 2021 class as Ole Miss won an in-state battle coming down the stretch before signing day. He was a Clarion Ledger Dandy Dozen pick in high school and was also selected to play in the Mississippi-Alabama All-Star Classic. He should be in line for significant playing time next season on the Rebel defense.
