Lane Kiffin delivered a big addition to Ole Miss' defense Wednesday, as four-star defensive tackle Tywone Malone announced on ESPN that he's signing with the Rebels.
The 6-foot-4, 310-pounder is ranked by ESPN as the fifth-best defensive tackle and 45th overall prospect in the Class of 2021. The Bergen Catholic grad visited both Texas A&M and Florida State in January before deciding to sign with Ole Miss.
Malone will likely be called on to make an immediate impact for Kiffin's defense. The Rebels' unit was the worst in the SEC last season, allowing over 38 points per game.
