Auburn signs two high schoolers, one JUCO transfer

It's been a busy day for Auburn. The Tigers officially signed three players to the team Wednesday -- high schoolers Craig Sanders and Jessel Curry and junior college transfer Brandon Mosley. All three will enroll in January.

Auburn's three major recruiting Web sites -- AuburnSports.com, Inside the Auburn Tigers and AuburnUndercover.com -- reported the news.

The three players will count back to last year's signing class. Schools are allowed to add 25 scholarship players per year. After several signees failed to make the grade, Auburn was well under that limit.

Sanders, a defensive lineman, is from Ariton (Ala.) High. He originally committed to Alabama but switched to Auburn. Curry, a linebacker from Buford, Ga., is the son of former Atlanta Falcons linebacker Buddy Curry.

Mosely was a late addition. The 6-foot-6, 275-pound offensive lineman/tight end played at Coffeyville (Kan.) Community College this season. He had offers from Arkansas, Florida State and Ole Miss among others, according to Inside the Auburn Tigers. Scout ranks him as a three-star recruit. He has three seasons to play two.

We're still waiting for anything official.

Andy, some rumors are going around that Eric Smith was kicked off the team. Can you inquire about this at practice? Thanks for D.W.Y.D.

I tweeted that he was not at practice. We're going to ask Chizik about Smith in a few minutes.

Other newspapers earlier this week had reported that Chris Davis would also enroll at Auburn in January. Have you heard anything about this and, if so, would he count back to 2009?

Andy Bitter said...

Not sure if he will, but if Davis does graduate early and enroll, he can count back to 2009.

Auburn had room for five early enrollees to count back because it added only 20 scholarship players last season.
