Four-star safety C.J. Hampton decommits from Ole Miss


The Ole Miss Rebels were hoping to build off of a strong recruiting class from one year ago by adding more talented prospects to their roster in 2014, but their 2014 class took a hit earlier this week when Meridian, Mississippi native C.J. Hampton decommited from the Rebels.

“I am not committed to anyone so you know,” Hampton wrote on his Twitter account before eventually deleted the message.

Hampton had committed to Ole Miss back in 2012 before his junior year of high school, but it appears that he has recently had a change of heart. He is expected to make his official decision later this afternoon.

Ole Miss still has a chance to land Hampton, as they are one of the final teams he is considering along with Alabama and Arkansas. However, the fact that he made it clear he was not committed to any school could be a bad sign for the Rebels entering today.

Hampton is considered the No. 5 safety recruit in the nation, so it will be a big get for whoever lands his commitment.
