Lineman Drops Texas For Auburn

Auburn continued its recruiting success on Friday by picking up a commitment from Christian Westerman.

The offensive lineman from Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton High School had been committed to Texas since May. Auburn benefited from offensive line coach Jeff Grimes deciding to stay with the Tigers instead of accepting the same position with Texas.

Auburn’s recruiting has taken a notable step up this month. The Tigers have received five commitments since Jan. 5. Auburn has 19 commitments for the class of 2011.

Could Auburn Steal Prospect From Texas?

Texas recently lost out on trying to lure away Auburn offensive line coach Jeff Grimes.

Texas could now lose one of its top offensive line prospects to the same school. Offensive lineman Christian Westerman from Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton High School will announce a “significant recruiting update” at his school on Friday.

There’s speculation that Westerman, who has been committed to Texas since April, will announce that he’s switching his pledge to Auburn.

That would be significant news for Auburn. Westerman is considered the third-best offensive tackle and No. 27 overall prospect in the nation by Rivals.com. He took an official visit to Auburn last month.

Auburn has enjoyed some impressive recruiting momentum in recent weeks.

Athlete Quan Bray, defensive back Robenson Therezie, linebacker Brent Calloway and athlete Kris Frost have all committed to the Tigers this month.

Auburn, which has 18 commitments for the 2011 class, is currently ranked No. 10 in the Rivals team rankings.
