Ole Miss added to the top-ranked transfer class on Saturday with a commitment from former Miami (OH) running back Rashad Amos.

The 6-foot-2, 234-pound tailback spent 3 seasons at South Carolina to begin his career before transferring to Miami (OH) for the 2023 season. There, he turned in a 1,075-yard, 13-touchdown campaign for the RedHawks before jumping back into the transfer portal around Christmas. Amos originally committed to Mississippi State in mid-April but flipped that pledge to Colorado several weeks later. Now, after taking a visit to Oxford, it seems he has settled on Ole Miss.

He’ll join the Rebels with 2 seasons of eligibility remaining.

Amos was a seldom-used back in South Carolina’s backfield during his 3 seasons with the Gamecocks, logging only 20 total carries in 13 career appearances.

His move to Oxford, Ohio, last season paved the way for a breakthrough year. Amos had 4 100-yard games for the RedHawks last season, including an explosive 163-yard day on 21 carries in the team’s 30-16 win over Ohio on Oct. 28. In the Cure Bowl against App State to end the year, Amos ran it 33 times for a career-best 180 yards. He found the endzone in 10 of his 14 appearances, helping the RedHawks to an 11-3 record and a MAC championship.

Per Pro Football Focus, Amos averaged 3.7 yards after contact and forced 49 missed tackles — fourth among MAC rushers.

Amos will be joining a crowded backfield at Ole Miss, which has now added four transfer running backs this offseason. Miami (FL) transfer Henry Parrish Jr. and New Mexico transfer Jacory Croskey-Merritt also committed to the Rebels during the spring window, while former LSU tailback Logan Diggs joined in the winter. Diggs had offseason knee surgery, putting his availability for the 2024 campaign up in the air.

Ole Miss also returns Ulysses Bentley IV, who had 95 carries for 540 yards and 4 scores last season while backing up Quinshon Judkins.

In attempting to replace Judkins’ production, head coach Lane Kiffin has given himself and his Rebels plenty of options.
