Auburn has released a list of signing day bios from Wednesday. Offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio is not among them.
The No. 1-ranked offensive tackle in the country, who committed to Auburn on ESPNU earlier in the day, is apparently having second thoughts.
Kouandjio, who had Alabama as a finalist, gave an interview to Scout.com shortly after committing to the Tigers. (Watch it here.) He said he didn't decide until the last second.
"The words just came out," Kouandjio said. "It was Alabama or Auburn and Auburn just came out of my mouth."

Kouandjjio said there was still "doubts in his mind" about his commitment. He's not bound to any school until he sends in his letter of intent.
His brother, Arie, recently finished his freshman year at Alabama, where he is also an offensive tackle.
"As a parent, the best thing would be for him to follow his brother," Kouandjio's father, Jean-Claude, said. "We know about Alabama. We've been there for a visit. ... But we take it serious and try to support him if that's his decision."
Head coach Gene Chizik isn't allowed to mention unsigned players by name. Asked about what his policy is for pursuing recruits after signing day, he opted not to answer.
'"I’m only going to talk about the ones that we’ve got paperwork in and we've signed," Chizik said.
