OXFORD, Miss. -- Ole Miss picked up its eighth top 300 commitment for the 2013 signing class, as shortstop Errol Robinson picked the Rebels on Sunday.
Robinson, a shortstop from Boyds, Md., is a Mississippi native, whose mother and father went to Ole Miss and Southern Miss, respectively.
Kendall Rogers first reported the commitment.
The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder is the No. 249 overall prospect for the class, according to Perfect Game. He's also rated as the No. 5 player in Maryland and No. 34 shortstop nationally.
Robinson ran a 6.85 60-yard dash during the 2012 National Showcase last month at the Metrodome. He also threw 84 MPH across the infield during the same event.
Perfect Game rates him a 9.0 on its 1-10 scale and had this scouting report during the National Underclass Showcase last December in Fort Myers, Fla.
