OXFORD, Miss. -- Ole Miss picked up a commitment from Dallas (Texas) Parish defensive back Daniel Demery on Friday. The Rebels were deep in the mix for the secondary player along with SMU.

He also mentioned Ole Miss defensive coordinator Chris Partridge as playing a big role in his recruitment along with head coach Lane Kiffin.
