Auburn adds another commitment ... sort of
Post No. 1,029
Daphne High quarterback Robert Cooper has committed himself to the Tigers' program, but won't make the roster until January 2010 ... at the earliest. We know this because our friends at AuburnSports.com tell us it is so.
Cooper will be grayshirting. He will sign a Letter of Intent on Wednesday, but will not enroll as a full-time student until January. That will preclude him from participating in football activities this fall because those endeavors are limited to full-time undergrads or graduates engaged in post-baccalaureate studies. When he joins the team in January 2010, he'll have five years to play four.
Cooper can play a variety of positions. Time will tell.
Auburn's last successful grayshirt: LB Chris Evans.
