National Signing Day 2011 has come and gone and top-ranked offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio remains unsigned.
Kouandjio remains up in the air despite offering Auburn his verbal commitment yesterday in a National Signing Day ceremony. After the announcement, Kouanjio was supposed fax his National Letter of Intent to the Tigers. It never came.
The announcement that Kouandjio was going to play at Auburn came as a shock to most, as he was considered a likely Alabama signee and had a long list of other finalists, including Iowa and New Mexico.
There is no timetable reported on when the DeMatha Catholic (Maryland) star will make his ultimate decision, leading to questions and utter confusion throughout much of the day Thursday.
If we’re playing the guessing game—which seems like it’s the only game we’re able to play at this point—I’d say that Kouandjio will end up elsewhere. He remains undecided between Auburn, Alabama and New Mexico, and I say he lands with the Tide.
Here are five reasons why I think Cyrus Kouandjio will sign with Alabama in the end.
