Former Gator Hornsby commits to Ole Miss



Former Florida safety Jamar Hornsby, who was dismissed from the team last spring after his arrest for allegedly using the credit card of a UF student who died in a motorcycle accident, has orally committed to play for Ole Miss next season.

Hornsby is facing felony charges of larceny of a credit card and fraudulent use of a credit card after court records say he used the credit card of Ashley Slonina, the UF student who was killed in a motorcycle accident last October while riding with UF football player MIchael Guilford. Guilford also died in the accident.

Hornsby has an upcoming court date in Alachua County, and is expected to settle the case. He has maintained he did not steal the card.

At 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, Hornsby spent this past season at Mississippi Community College where he earned Junior College All-American honors.
