Phillips chooses Auburn

More than five months after OT Aubrey Phillips spurned Auburn for Florida State, the incoming freshman has decided that's where he wants to play.

Phillips, who was granted a full release from FSU after he reported in mid-June, chose Auburn over Arkansas. and Inside The Auburn Tigers first reported the news. Phillips said he would enroll in school in August.

The next issue is whether or not FSU grants Phillips a waiver to play in the 2009 season. If not, Phillips has to sit out because of NCAA transfer rules.

Auburn is in dire need for offensive line depth, something Phillips could provide.

The Tigers have also added two more recruits to the 2010 class. Both ATH D.J. Howard (Lincoln HS) and DB Demetruce McNeal announced their verbal commitments to Auburn over the last three days.

Read tomorrow's Anniston Star for a full report on Howard's decision to sign with the Tigers.

Auburn now has 11 total commitments this summer.
