Adeboyejo announced his commitment on his Twitter account, @QuincyA18. The Ole Miss Spirit later confirmed the news. Adeboyjo is rated the No. 57 wide receiver in the country by Scout.com.

"I planned on announcing on the 29th (of January) but why wait when you know where you need to be?" Adeboyejo said on Twitter. "Ole Miss is home."


The 6-foot-3, 175-pound Adeboyejo, a one-time Texas A&M commitment, joins an Ole Miss commitment class already ranked No. 13 in the nation by Scout.com.

Along with Adeboyejo, Ole Miss holds commitments from such talented wide receivers as five-star Laquon Treadwell, three-star Derrick Jones, three-star Quadarias Mireles and two-star Trey Bledsoe.

"I'm home," he said on Twitter. "This is it. I'm a Rebel, baby."

Adeboyejo, of Cedar Hill, Texas, led Cedar Hill High School to a Texas 5A-II state championship. He hauled in 91 catches for 1,265 yards and 17 touchdowns.

He held no shortage of offers. Arizona State, Clemson, Houston, Nebraska, Texas Tech and UCLA joined Ole Miss and Texas A&M in extending a scholarship.

He'll be inserted into an Ole Miss wide receivers corps already featuring rising junior Donte Moncrief, who finished his sophomore season sixth in the Southeastern Conference in receiving. He had 976 yards and 10 touchdowns last season.

Veterans Vincent Sanders and Ja-Mes Logan emerged as reliable contributors, as well, helping engineer a five-game turnaround for Ole Miss in the first year under head coach Hugh Freeze.

The Rebels finished the 2012-13 season 7-6 overall, including a blowout win over Pittsburgh in the BBVA Compass Bowl earlier this month.

Throughout the recruiting process, Adeboyejo said he was in search of the offense that best suited his talents. "Ultimately, that's what my decision will be based on, which offense fits me best," he said.

With Ole Miss, he'll be inserted into an up-tempo style that was fifth in the conference in total offense last season, averaging 423.8 yards per game, and 31.5 points per game.

"I like those coaches a lot," Adeboyejo said of Ole Miss in a previous interview with Scout.com. "Playing in the SEC is a big plus. I can tell they're great people and coaches, and you can't beat playing in the SEC. Ole Miss is headed in the right direction."
