Auburn recruiting news

The Tigers landed more defensive help Monday when a pair of defensive linemen committed to Auburn, according to

Jamar Travis, a four-star defensive tackle from W.S. Neal, switched his commitment from Southern Mississippi to Auburn.

Travis said Sunday that he planned to reevaluate his decision to attend USM. As he said, he reached his final answer on Monday morning.

Auburn also landed defensive end Nosa Eguae, a 6-foot-3, 244-pound defensive end from Mansfield-Summit High School in Texas.

Chizik visited Eguae at his home on Monday, when the three-star defensive end committed to join the Auburn program.

Auburn didn’t offer either player until Gene Chizik took over as coach.

Auburn’s recruiting class is now up to 21 members. The Tigers are expected to host several highly sought prospects this weekend, the final visit weekend of the current recruiting season.
