    Ole Miss defensive tackle signee Tae-Kion Reed has been arrested and charged with burglary, adding more bad news to the reeling Rebels program.


    The Ole Miss program has seen much better days, and things just got a little bit worse as a signee in the 2017 recruiting class, Tae-Kion Reed, has been arrested and charged with burglary.

    Reed, who surprised many by decommitting from rival Mississippi State and signing with the Rebels on National Signing Day, allegedly broke into a house. He was quickly arrested, with no other details having been released at this time.

    A three-star prospect out of New Hope HS in Columbus, Mississippi, Reed was ranked the No. 3 defensive tackle in the state of Mississippi, and 107th overall in the nation. Reed’s signing was crucial for the Rebels, as Hugh Freeze’s team is in need of some depth in the trenches.

    The news of Reed’s arrest comes a week after the Ole Miss program self-imposed a one-year postseason ban in response to the NCAA Notice of Allegations, which detailed 21 violations that has occurred during Freeze’s tenure. Freeze has been charged with violating head coach responsibility legislation, while the school lacked institutional control and failed to monitor the conduct and administration of its athletics program. Ole Miss will contest both charges.
