National Signing Day: Top Auburn Recruit Having Second Thoughts
National Signing Day Is Getting Interesting With Cyrus Kouandjio Reportedly Reconsidering His Verbal Commitment To Auburn
At around noon today, OT Cyrus Kouandjio, the top offensive lineman in the country, was being interviewed on ESPNU and announced his intentions to play football for Auburn University starting next year. It was a major coup for the defending champion Tigers, and catapulted them up the recruiting class rankings.
One thing that made the decision so interesting was that Kouandjio's brother is an offensive lineman for Alabama.
Just three hours later, reports are suggesting that Kouandjio is really struggling with the decision, and is still undecided about where he will attend school. The one thing that we do know for sure is that he will play for Auburn or Alabama.
In the Washington Post report, they say that one of the major reasons that Kouandjio didn't want to go to Alabama was because he feels hesitant to "compete with his brother to be the Crimson Tide's left tackle."
No doubt Gene Chizik is going to be scrambling trying to convince Kouandjio to sign with the Tigers, but this is definitely a situation that we will be keeping an eye on.
Plus, this adds another interesting chapter to the already legendary Auburn-Alabama rivalry.
