Auburn picks up three commitments

Sunday was a big day for Auburn football recruiting, literally and figuratively.

The Tigers picked up three commitments for the 2009 class: Andre Harris, a 6-foot-4, 327-pound offensive lineman from Lovejoy High School in Hampton, Ga.; LaDarius Perkins, a 5-9, 180 athlete from Greenville (Miss.) St. Joseph; and Travante Stallworth, a 5-10, 180 athlete from Leesville (La.) High.

That brings to 14 the number of Auburn's early commitments for the 2009 class.

Harris chose Auburn over offers from Arkansas, Georgia Tech, Mississippi State, N.C. State, Rutgers, Tennessee and Virginia, according to

Perkins rushed for nearly 2,000 yards and 29 touchdowns as a junior and chose Auburn over offers from Arkansas State, Louisiana-Monroe, Louisiana Tech and Southern Miss. He projects as either a running back or slot receiver.

Stallworth rushed for nearly 1,000 yards on 165 attempts and scored 17 touchdowns as a junior. He also threw for 1,340 yards and 10 touchdowns, but he worked at receiver during Auburn's camp this weekend. He had an offer from Tulsa.
