News of the day, 1/13
Every recruit is a stud in someone's eyes. Every recruit is a bust in someone's eyes.
With that said, let's examine the significant developments:
*WR Philip Pierre-Louis of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., committed to the Tigers on Sunday. He's only 5-foot-9 (some list him at 5-10), but he's remarkably fast. He chose Auburn over Syracuse and Mississippi State. Pierre is the Tigers' 20th commitment.
*S Christian Thompson, who played high-school ball with Pierre-Louis, said Sunday that he enjoyed his trip. Still, he didn't make a firm decision before leaving. He's considering offers from LSU, Miami and Mississippi State.
*WR LaRon Byrd of Boutte, La., said he now considers Auburn his No. 1 choice. He's 6-4. He's considering competing offers from Mississippi State and Miami.
*DE Robert Quinn of Charleston, S.C. said he enjoyed his weekend at Auburn and considers the Tigers his co-leaders along with Alabama and North Carolina.
*RB Eric Smith of suburban Tampa, Fla., will announce his decision Saturday. He is choosing between Auburn and Clemson. Smith told AuburnSports.com that his visit was a 100 on a scale of 1-10.
