O-line help on its way? and Inside The Auburn Tigers EDIT: and Auburn Undercover reported a potentially major story this weekend when the web sites interviewed former AU recruit Aubrey Phillips.

If you recall, the four-star offensive tackle considered the Tigers strongly this year during his recruitment. Ultimately he chose Florida State.

Phillips said he has now received a full release from FSU. In other words, he can enroll at any school he chooses.

Why is this a big story? Phillips spent at least part of Sunday in Auburn. He told ITAT that he was choosing between Auburn and Arkansas. Phillips told that he might spend Sunday night in Auburn.

According to the AuburnSports report, Phillips said he was told by Gene Chizik that there is a spot for him if he chooses the Tigers.

Phillips' teammate, cornerback Daren Bates, signed with Auburn in February.

Phillips could be huge for the Tigers because they are desperate for offensive line depth.


I apologize that the blogging has slowed over the last few days. I hosted some friends from out of town over the weekend and was working on a new project earlier in the week.

As of tomorrow, you can find Anniston Star SEC preview podcasts here. We will post a new podcast every day for the next 12 days, previewing every SEC team. Please let me know what you do and don't like about the podcasts because it's something I plan to continue through the season if the interest is there.
