McCalebb to join Tigers


Auburn gained a potentially valuable playmaker at the tailback position on Monday when Onterio McCalebb was ruled eligible to enroll at the university.
AuburnSports.com reported the news late Monday. McCalebb told the web site he would enroll at school Wednesday.
McCalebb gives Auburn more depth at tailback, where the Tigers had just three scholarship players. McCalebb joins Ben Tate, Mario Fannin and Eric Smith.
Fannin and Tate are expected to compete for the starting spot, but coaches have declared a new slate.
McCalebb joins linebacker Eltoro Freeman and defensive lineman Nick Fairley as mid-year enrollees.
McCalebb signed with Auburn last year, but failed to qualify academically.
He spent the year at Hargrave Military Academy where he rushed for 755 yards and four touchdowns in eight games.
