Ole Miss added another impressive prospect to its 2014 recruiting class Tuesday. Cornerback Kendarius Webster (Stockbridge, Ga.) pulled the trigger on a commitment to the Rebels, per Scout.com reporter Ben Garrett.
The 4-star recruit joins an Ole Miss class that lost one of its top targets Monday. Offensive tackle Andy Bauer (St. Louis, Mo.) decommitted to reestablish a pledge with Missouri.
Webster becomes the 21st member of a group that now features seven 4-star players. He picked the Rebels from a long list of suitors, most notably Florida State, Clemson and Georgia.
Ole Miss hosted Webster for an official visit weekend last month. He watched the Rebels play SEC rival Texas A&M on Oct. 12.
Webster was in Tallahassee on Saturday, when Florida State faced Miami, according to 247Sports.
The 5'11", 175-pound defender is listed as the nation's No. 26 cornerback recruit in 247Sports composite rankings. There's an immediate need for his talent in Oxford.
Cornerback Charles Sawyer is a senior, while Senquez Golson has one year of eligibility remaining. Webster is the fourth defensive back prospect to commit to Ole Miss during this recruiting cycle.
Webster is the fourth 2014 Rebel commit recruited out of Georgia. In 2013, five players from the Peach State signed letters of intent with Ole Miss, highlighted by No. 1 national prospect Robert Nkemdiche.
