Auburn gets commitment from Gadsden, Ala., safety Anthony Swain

Anthony Swain, a safety from Gadsden, Ala., gave his verbal commitment to sign with Auburn in 2011. The 6-foot-3, 213-pound Swain made his decision known after attending Auburn's Junior Day on Saturday.

We know this because of the fine reporting at AuburnSports.com, Inside the Auburn Tigers and The Auburn Sports Blog.

Swain chose Auburn over Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky and Clemson.

A big, physical safety, Swain played eight games for Gadsden City High last year before breaking his foot while making a cut.

"I'm a big dude that can move," Swain told Scout.com earlier this month.

He is the Tigers' third commitment for 2011, joining East Mississippi Community College defensive back Izauea Lanier and Somerville, Ala., offensive lineman Spencer Region.

Let's update the big board for 2011:
  • Izauea Lanier, DB, 6-1, 190, Gordo, Ala. (East Mississippi CC)
  • Spencer Region, OL, 6-6, 330, Somerville, Ala. (Cullman High)
  • Anthony Swain, S, 6-3, 215, Gadsden, Ala. (Gadsden City High)
