Auburn Signee Blackson Receives Good News

Auburn 2011 signee Angelo Blackson has been cleared to enroll in school, according to AuburnSports.com.

The defensive tackle from Red Lion Christian Academy in Bear, Del., isn’t Auburn’s highest-rated signee at the position. That would be Gabe Wright from Columbus, Ga. But Blackson is expected to challenge for playing time right away this fall.

“Blackson has the athleticism and the body to compete immediately for playing time on a rebuilt defensive front at Auburn,” Justin Hokanson of AuburnSports wrote on twitter.

Three of Auburn’s 2011 signees are still waiting to be cleared to enroll in school: wide receiver Jaylon Denson, running back Tre Mason and defensive back Anthony Swain.

Michael Flint No Longer Committed To Auburn

Offensive lineman Michael Flint from Oxford (Ala.) High School is no longer committed to Auburn.

Flint was the first prospect to commit to the Tigers for the 2012 class. He has decided he wants to seek other options.

“I had made an early decision, and I just want to take my other vsits and visit other schools,” Flint told AuburnSports.com. “I just started to realize I should take my chances and see what else is out there.”

Flint said he hopes to visit Oregon and UCLA. He also had received offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, LSU, Georgia, Tennessee, Florida State and Notre Dame.

Auburn still has seven commitments for the class of 2012.

Justin Hokanson of AuburnSports.com said Flint and Auburn “mutually agreed to part ways.”

“Auburn’s class in 2012 will be just fine despite the Flint decommitment,” Hokanson tweeted.

Roberson Helps Auburn Continue Recruiting Success

Marcus Roberson’s decision to switch his commitment from Texas Tech to Auburn should come as no surprise.

In fact, we wrote the night that he committed to Texas Tech that his recruiting was still very much up in the air.

Roberson’s commitment to Auburn is another significant piece to the Tigers’ class of 2011. Roberson, who attends St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is ranked the No. 2 cornerback and No. 37 overall prospect in the nation by Rivals.com.

Auburn has 23 commitments for 2011. The Tigers have received four commitments in the last week and nine commitments in the month of January. Auburn’s class is now ranked sixth nationally in the Rivals team rankings.

Auburn doesn’t appear to be done with its class. The Tigers are still recruiting several highly-touted prospects, including offensive linemen Cyrus Kouandjio and Antonio Richardson, defensive tackle Gabe Wright and defensive backs Erique Florence and Jermaine Whitehead.

Here’s a recent Q&A with Justin Hokanson of AuburnSports.com looking ahead to National Signing Day.
