Safety Malik Greaves from Sandalwood High School in Jacksonville, Fla., is focusing his recruitment on Auburn now that he’s no longer committed to Vanderbilt.
Greaves told 247Sports that he decommitted from Vanderbilt last week and plans to take an official visit to Auburn in the near future.
“Vanderbilt is a good program,” Greaves said. “From the staff to the players. I just feel that it would be a better situation for me at Auburn. They are a great academic school as well as Vandy, just with a more pro-style defensive system. Yeah, they fell off this season but that happens.”
Of course, as the season for Auburn (1-7, 0-6 SEC) continues to get worse, the future of Auburn coach Gene Chizik and his staff becomes more in doubt. And that could cause prospects like Greaves to question their interest in playing for the Tigers.
