OK. Here we go.

CB Izauea Lanier (right) of Gordo High, an Auburn commitment, said matter-of-factly that QB Tyrik Rollison committed this weekend. Saying that and meaning that are two different things sometimes. Not sure what to make of that.

WR DeAngelo Benton has left the building. He didn't want to talk, which is OK with me.

LB Jonathan Atchison of suburban Atlanta, an Alabama commitment, has left the building. His uncle, John Williams, spoke for him. Williams said Atchison's appearance at Auburn this weekend signifies significant interest. He also said James Willis' jump to Alabama doesn't affect anything.

DT Jamar Travis from W.S. Neal High in Brewton has received an offer from Auburn. He seemed elated to have received that, but said he remains committed to Southern Miss right now. Travis said he intends to make a final decision tomorrow. Auburn and Southern Miss are the only candidates.
- LB Joel Kight, WR Travante Stallworth and ATH Robert Cooper left from an alternate location. That means I wasn't able to get them today. It happens.
- A couple of administrative things. LBs DeDe Lattimore and Greg King didn't make the trip this weekend as previously reported. So they're not here. They may reschedule; they way not.
- Rollison arrived on Saturday (he had a basketball game on Friday night) and won't leave until Monday. Prospects have 48 hours to tour each college. He won't be visible today.
