Rebels fill hole at defensive tackle

Finesse' Middleton, an undersized defensive tackle from Gadsden (Ala.) High School, has committed to play in the Southeastern Conference for Ole Miss, multiple sources report.

The 5-foot-11, 253-pound rising senior also picked up scholarship offers from Arkansas State, Louisville, Middle Tennessee, Southern Miss, Tulane and UAB. Clemson and Mississippi State showed interest.

Four-star defensive tackle Christopher Robinson (Shreveport, La./Woodlawn), who selected the Rebels in April, is no longer committed to Ole Miss.

Hugh Freeze is currently holding onto 19 pledges for 2013.
