Sunday recruiting news
Hey everyone. We're now underway.
- (9:03 a.m.) Offensive lineman John Sullen of Auburn High has committed to Auburn University. He had been committed to Southern Miss. That has changed. Sullen currently is en route to relay that information to coach Gene Chizik ... so you really do know it first.
- (9:50 a.m.) The two kids from Texas, defensive end Nosa Eguae (pictured at left) and wideout Emory Blake, were phenomenal interviews. Eguae seemed really high on Auburn. He was committed to Colorado. He's also thinking about Nebraska and Texas Tech. Word was that he had committed to Auburn during the weekend, but Eguae said that did not happen.
Blake was more diplomatic, though I don't think it was a function of not being impressed with Auburn. He said Texas Tech, Colorado and Auburn are his top three.
- (10:35 a.m.) Linebacker Tana Patrick (prounounced tuh-NAY) has left the building. He didn't have a lot to say afterward. He rated his visit a 10, but still is considering Alabama, LSU, Southern Cal and Tennessee. He's headed to Los Angeles next weekend.
- (10:53 a.m.) Athlete Demond Washington said he's still committed to Ole Miss. Auburn and Ole Miss are the only two schools he's considering. It's uncertain which position would fit him best in college -- he's a cornerback and an offensive utility guy -- but his last chat was with defensive coordinator Ted Roof.
- (11:20 a.m.) Defensive lineman DeQuinta Jones has left the building. He's a Michigan commitment, but seemed pretty intrigued by the things he saw here this weekend.
- (1:10 a.m.) Offensive/defensive lineman Brandon Moore of Montgomery's G.W. Carver High just left the building after a long talk with Gene Chizik, Jona Chizik and Moore's parents. It was a long one. Moore didn't rule Auburn out, but I think this decision will come down to Alabama or Florida.
- Also visited this weekend: Wideout Anthony Gulley, defensive end (and Auburn commitment) Dee Ford.
- More to come.
