Signing Day blog

2:00 p.m.: Running back Tarean Folston has signed with Notre Dame, and that's a wrap for Auburn Signing Day of 2013. It can't be viewed any other way than as a major success for first-year head coach Gus Malzahn.

11:24 a.m.: With the signing of Johnathan Ford, Auburn has moved back to No. 10 in the 247Composite team recruiting rankings. Quite an accomplishment.

11:11 a.m.: Johnathan Ford is official. His NLOI has arrived.

11:06 a.m.: Auburn put the finishing touch a big-time Signing Day when 4-star running back Johnathan Ford said he has signed with Auburn.

10:55 a.m.: DE Tashawn Bower finally ends the suspense and signs with LSU.

10:56 a.m.: PK Daniel Carlson's NLOI has arrived.

10:50 a.m.: Five-star defensive tackle Montravius Adams is now official. His Letter-of-Intent has arrived.

10:50 a.m.: S Brandon King is in the house.

10:15 a.m.: Auburn was hit by its first Signing Day disappointment Wednesday when 5-star cornerback Mackensie Alexander committed to Clemson. His brother, 3-star safety Mackenro McKensie, chose Auburn.

10:05 a.m. Safety Mackenro Alexander form Immokalee (Fla.) High School has chosen Auburn, according to reports. He is the twin brother of MacKensie Alexander, a 5-star cornerback. No word yet on what MacKensie plans to do.

9:50 a.m.: The Reuben Foster saga is officially over. He has signed with Alabama.

9:38 a.m.; More on a bizarre day for DE Tashawn Bower. He picked up an LSU hat at his commitment ceremony but the word now is that he hasn't signed and still doesn't know what he is going to do. Very strange.

9:36 a.m.: The loss of Tshawn Bower dropped Auburn from No. 10 to No. 11 in the 247Composite team rankings. The Tigers figure to get running back Jonathan Ford from New Hope, and that should put them back in the top 10 to stay.

9:11 a.m.: Tashawn Bower, an Auburn commitment until the last day, has chosen LSU. There were reports this morning he had signed with Florida. Those clearly were erroneous. LSU was widely believed to be behind Florida and Auburn going into Signing Day.

9:06 a.m.: Auburn has moved to No. 10 in the 247Composite team ratings. That's a truly remarkable accomplishment for first-year coach Gus Malzahn and his staff.

8:51 a.m.: Auburn continues its huge haul on the defensive line as 5-star DT Montravius Adams says he'll be a Tiger. That's a big one. Very big. Third 5-star DL pickup of the day, joining Carl Lawson and Elijah Daniel.

8:37 a.m.: Jason Smith's papers are in the house. He's been listed as an athlete, but head coach Gus Malzahn's tweet calls him a quarterback.

8:25 a.m.: Huntsville High linebacker Cameron Toney, another player who eagerly joined the recruiting effort, has signed his papers. He's a Tiger.

8:21 a.m.; Wide receiver Earnest Robinson and linebacker Kenny Flowers are in the house.

8:12 a.m.: Four-star QB Jeremy Johnson from Carver High School in Montgomery, who has spent the last two months doing his best to double as a recruiter, has made it official. He's an Auburn Tiger.

8:08 a.m.: S Khari Harding, once an Arkansas commitment, has signed with Auburn.

8:01 a.m.: Nick Marshall is in the house, and he's being called a quarterback.

8:01 a.m.: Five-star DE Carl Lawson has made it official. He's an Auburn Tiger.

8:01 a.m.: It's official now on OL Deon Mix. His coach says he's signed and faxed his letter of intent.

7:57 a.m.: Running back Peyton Barber has signed with Auburn. He's a teammate of 5-star DE and Auburn commitment Carl Lawson at Milton High School in Alpharetta, Ga.

7:49 a.m.: The Jackson Clarion-Ledger reports that offensive lineman Deon Mix, a former Mississippi State commitment from South Panola (Miss.) High School, has signed with Auburn. Mix is scheduled to announce his choice at 10 a.m.

7:35 a.m.: WR Marcus Davis is in the house.

7 a.m.: WR Dominic Walker has signed with Auburn.

6:40 a.m.: Wide receiver Tony Stevens has signed with Auburn.

6:39 a.m.: Hold the phone on Bower. He tweets he hasn't signed anywhere. Florida still likely.

6:31 a.m.: Five-star defensive end Elijah Daniel has flipped from Ole Miss to Auburn. He has signed with Auburn.

6:32 a.m.: Defensive end Tashawn Bower, a former Auburn commitment, has signed with Florida..

12:01 a.m.: PK Jimmy Hutchinson has accepted a grayshirt offer from Auburn and will be part of the 2014 class. The decision was reached several weeks ago.

12:01 a.m.: Auburn begins the day with 20 commitments and No. 16 in the 247Composite team recruiting rankings.

12:01 a.m.: Welcome! National Signing Day has arrived. Prospects can begin signing National Letter of Intents at 7:00 a.m. local time, which means the first faxes can start rolling in at Auburn shortly after 6:00 a.m. CT.
