The place for Tiger fans to talk football, basketball and recruiting
The place for Tiger fans to talk about everything Auburn and not!

You have no favorite boards.
No details yet but Roberson is no longer committed to Auburn and won't be signing with the Tigers.

Fearless and true.
WTH? I wish these kids would just make up their minds before announcing stuff.
Don't know. Something happened to cause Auburn to turn him loose.
"There's no doubt, we're going up."
Wow. And thus goes recruiting........ Never a boring moment.
The recruiting industry needs to come up with a better term than commit, since it really doesn't mean that anymore.
That is the report. Details are sketchy at this point. Have ESPN reporting that AU has NOT dropped Roberson. I believe BM ... obviously something has happened.
Recruiting drives me nuts. I could not imagine being a coach where recruiting is part of your job. How do they sleep during this time of year?

I am with you lonestartiger07. Just when I thought I might get some work done today ... then this!
tweet from Newburg...
@JNewbergESPN Was just told that Auburn has NOT dropped Marcus Roberson.#ESPN_NSD

Who knows what's going on. I wonder if that was a move similar to Frost? Make it known that we'll move on if necessary to see if he's serious or not? He reportedly told a Florida reporter that he wasn't 100% Auburn as of yesterday. Maybe we're just making sure he's locked in before we leave Whitehead to MSU?
PS. I'm taking Bryan's word on it, but just wonder if in the end we'll take him back in?

I just dropped my phone. You can report that as fact!!
Lol, we need to just step back and chill. Something happened, who knows what. Wanna bet we get some one committing tomorrow who doesn't even have an offer? It'll all come out in the wash.

Based on BM's statement, there is/are good reasons the coaches have dropped Roberson. It sounds like, even after Roberson committed yesterday, he told a Florida reporter that he was not 100% committed to AU. If that is so, it is too late in the game for games.
