Auburn’s first commitment on Wednesday came from defensive end Devaunte Sigler from B.C. Rain High School in Mobile, Ala.
Sigler made the announcement at his school, choosing Auburn over LSU and Mississippi State.
“I’ve had a lot of time to think about it, and now I know,” Sigler said, according to the Mobile Press-Register.
Sigler’s goals are high as he prepares to enter college. He said he plans to be the “next Nick Fairley,” referring to the former Auburn defensive tackle expected to be drafted near the top of April’s NFL Draft.
Auburn might have also found the next running back to make an instant impact in Gus Malzahn’s offense. Tre Mason from Park Vista High School in Lake Worth, Fla., committed to Auburn over Ole Miss.
“It was the place that felt the most like home to me,” Mason told ESPN.com. “The coaching staff is great. The players were cool. Everything was great.”
Mason became Auburn’s 21st commitment for the class of 2011.
