As the dead period marches on, On3 is updating its rankings. On Monday, Charles Power and Cody Bellaire released the newly-minted On300 Rankings. And Ole Miss lands four commits in the newly-unveiled list.

Let’s take a look at who Lane Kiffin and Co., have committed in the 25th-ranked class and where they are located in the new rankings.

4-star CB Maison Dunn – No. 141

The 6-foot-4, 180 pound prospect was one of Pete Golding‘s top priorities not only in the state of Mississippi, but nationally as well. And on Monday, Dunn was rewarded by being bumped all the way up inside the Top 150.

“Most coaches have offered and recruited him as a corner,” Tupelo head coach Ty Hardin said. “But he’s skilled enough to play safety, too. He is built like a gazelle and is going to get better and better.”

As a junior, he made 21 tackles and grabbed two interceptions and a tackle for loss for a 9-3 Golden Wave team.

4-star DL Andrew Maddox – No. 198

At 6-foot-3, 270 pounds, Maddox is a smooth mover on the interior. His tight relationship with family friend and Ole Miss defensive coordinator, Pete Golding, was a huge piece of the puzzle. But, he is also very close with defensive line coach Randall Joyner.

“They are developing players and they won 11 games last year. Me and (defensive coordinator/linebackers coach Pete (Golding), we have a connection,” Maddox said. “He recruited me when he was at Alabama. When he moved to Ole Miss, that brought me closer to him.

“My brother is going there, so that’s what also drew me closer to Ole Miss. (Defensive line) coach (Randall) Joyner is like a second father to me. He’s taken me under his wing and shown me around, shown me things and we are building a relationship. I am getting to know him and I feel safe around him.”

4-star S Keon Young – No. 272

Ole Miss landed one of the more exciting players out of the state of Florida in June. Young has a great bond with safeties coach Wes Neighbors, cornerbacks coach Bryan Brown and Golding. The prestige of playing for a SEC program was a big factor in his recruitment.

“I committed because it’s in the SEC; I want to play against the best every day and on Saturdays,” he told On3. “Coach Pete [Golding], Coach Brown and Coach Neighbors will put me in the best position to go to the NFL. I can see myself being around all these loving people and having fun for the next three to four years.”

Young has quickly taken to the Rebels’ coaching staff, who made him feel like a top priority in their 2025 class.

“The thing that put Ole Miss in the mix was they will always be a great program under Coach Kiffin, and I trust my DB coaches will put me in the best position and prepare me for the next level,” he added. “They’ve recruited me very hard over these few months, and it made me feel important to them.”

4-star LB Jarcoby Hopson – No. 279

Speaking of priorities, Hopson was on Golding’s radar from the jump. The Lake Cormorant (Miss.) prospect has gone from being a secondary recruit to growing into a 6-foot-2, 220 pound linebacker. He is a huge part of Kiffin’s plan for the in-state class.

“Ole Miss is recruiting me as an outside linebacker,” Hopson said. “I’m just building a relationship as much as possible, Pete GoldingKelvin Bolden. All of them.”
