When a coaching staff lands one of the top recruits in the country, it has a right to celebrate.

Auburn defensive coordinator Will Muschamp must have missed that memo.

On Wednesday, Byron Cowart—whom 247Sports lists as a 5-star recruit—committed to Auburn. However, Muschamp didn't provide much of a reaction when he found out he was getting a 6'4", 250-pound defensive end to work with in the fall.

The Armwood High School (Seffner, Florida) product was the No. 1 recruit at his position, so it's OK to give high-fives after landing him. Or at least smile.

Cowart committed to the Tigers with the help of Chucky from Child's Play, per The Independent Florida Alligator's Graham Hall:

The Chucky doll was a clear sign of loyalty to Muschamp, who had a history with the doll at the University of Florida.
