A week after Auburn landed one of the nation’s top tailbacks, the Tigers also grabbed a commitment from a top receiver on Friday.
Trovon Reed, a receiver from Thibodaux (La.), announced his attentions to play for Auburn on Friday after agreeing to play in the U.S. Army All-American Game.
Rivals.com ranks Reed as a four-star prospect and the No. 5 receiver nationally.
Reed’s commitment gives the Tigers 21 this year. Auburn plans to count five signees in the 2009 class, enabling the Tigers to sign a total of 33 players this year – five more than the maximum of 28.
Auburn has now gotten four commitments from receivers – Reed, Jeremy Richardson, Antonio Goodwin and Shaun Kitchens.
Before Reed’s announcement, Rivals.com listed Auburn as having the No. 10 recruiting class. Reed’s decision will likely give the Tigers a boost in the rankings. Five SEC teams, including Alabama, are currently ahead of Auburn in the team rankings.
