Auburn received commitments during the weekend from safety Khari Harding from Edmond, Okla., kicker Jimmy Hutchinson from Kennesaw, Ga., and wide receiver Tony Stevens from Orlando, Fla.
Stevens, who switched his commitment from Texas A&M, made the decision after seeing Auburn’s campus for the first time.
“It felt like home,” Stevens told AuburnSports.com. “It’s a family out here. I committed to Auburn University. I’m happy I made my decision.”
Harding made his decision to switch his commitment from Arkansas to Auburn. Both schools experienced coaching changes last month.
It was Auburn that produced a staff that was better able to connect with Harding.
“I wanted to be loyal, but I went for the coaches and I didn’t get a good vibe from their coaches,” Harding told AuburnSports. “The Auburn coaches are down to earth and they produce players.”
Auburn lost a commitment on Sunday from running back Jordan Wilkins of Cordova, Tenn.
Decommitted from AU…. Thanks for all the love from the fans but I have to do what’s best for me.

Wilkins’s decision is not surprising. He had been considering other schools, including Ole Miss and Vanderbilt, since Gene Chizik was fired as head coach in November.
Auburn has 16 commitments for the class of 2013.
