J.J. Hawkins committed to Ole Miss on Friday, and made history for his high school football program in the process.
Hawkins became the first Discovery athlete to commit to a Power Five school when he chose the Rebels.
The 6-foot-3, 240-pound senior is a prospect at defensive end and outside linebacker who also has played running back for the Titans. He had 58 tackles and eight sacks last season, averaged nearly 10 yards per carry and was a first-team All-Region 6-AAAAAAA selection.
He also plays basketball for Discovery.
