Five-star offensive tackle Drew Richmond committed to Ole Miss on Tuesday.

Richmond announced his decision on an ESPN.com broadcast. He chose the Rebels over offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Ohio State and many others.

HAMILTON: Has Penn State really learned its lesson?

The Memphis native said a big factor in his decision was the ability to learn from Ole Miss sophomore offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil, who was a five-star recruit in the class of 2013. Richmond also said he still plans on taking all five of his official visits "to be sure that Ole Miss is the right place."

Richmond is rated the No. 27 recruit in the country and the No. 5 offensive tackle by Rivals. He becomes the third commitment in the team's 2015 class rated four stars or above. 

Ole Miss is 2-0 so far this season. The Rebels next play Saturday against Louisiana-Lafayette.
