Less than three weeks after decommitting from Ole Miss, Gautier (Miss.) offensive tackle Bryson Hurst has committed to the Rebels again.
Hurst is the No. 323 prospect in the 2022 class, according to the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He ranks as the nation’s No. 18 offensive tackle and the No. 8 prospect in Mississippi.
Saturday morning, the 6-foot-5, 340-pounder shared a graphic on his Twitter account announcing his commitment with “110%” written above it.
Bryson Hurst decommitted from the Rebels on Nov. 14
In mid-November, Hurst announced on Twitter that he was backing off his commitment to the Rebels. But he didn’t shut the door on them being a part of his recruitment going forward.
“I would just like to say that during these three months of my commitment Ole Miss has treated me well,” Hurst tweeted. “With that being said, I will be decommitting from the University of Mississippi and bringing my recruiting back open.”
He originally committed to the Rebels on his birthday, Aug. 25, announcing the news just after midnight. He chose Ole Miss over offers from Oregon, Missouri, Kentucky, Florida State and others.
He took unofficial visits to other campuses, but ultimately recommitted to the Rebels on his official visit this weekend.
The 6-foot-6, 320-pound Hurst brings a ton of size and SEC physicality to the Rebels’ 2022 offensive line class that also includes mammoths Preston Cushman and Timi Gagophien. The length and aggressive nature that Hurst plays with is something that should pay dividends once he moves up to the SEC.
