Weekend rewind: Tigers add three

It was a huge weekend for Auburn recruiting. Check below for a brief look at all the recruiting news from Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Flower committed to Auburn Friday.

AUBURN ADDS THREE COMMITMENTS: Auburn picked up commitments from three of its top targets over the weekend. It started Friday with a commitment from 3-star linebacker Kenny Flowers from Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College.

Flowers is expected to play outside linebacker at Auburn.

“As a player, he’s super strong and has great closing speed,” Hutchinson coach Rion Rhoades said. “He’s an instinctual guy and has a good feel for the game and he’s a smart player too. I feel like Kenny has a great total package to bring to the table at Auburn.”

Just hours later, 3-star wide receiver Dominic Walker from Evans in Orlando, Fla., flipped his commitment from Nebraska to Auburn, joining his teammate, 4-star wide receiver Tony Stevens, who committed to Auburn last week.

Walker and Stevens have played together since middle school.

“This is just an amazing opportunity to get another four years, with not only my teammate, but my brother," Walker said.

Sunday, 3-star athlete Marcus Davis from American Heritage in Delray Beach, Fla., committed to Auburn following an official visit. Davis was a standout quarterback in high school but is expected to play slot receiver at Auburn.

"I fell in love with the offense," Davis said, "getting the ball in space and making plays."

Alexander has one more visit left.

Auburn is up to 19 commitments for the 2013 class. Click HERE for a complete list of Auburn’s commitments.

5-STAR REALLY IMPRESSED WITH AUBURN: 5-star cornerback MacKensie Alexander from Immokalee (Fla.) High officially visited Auburn this weekend and left with the Tigers among his top schools.

Alexander said his close relationship with assistant coaches Charlie Harbison and Melvin Smith are a big plus for Auburn.

“I came because of those guys,” Alexander said. “They’ve been recruiting me for a while and I have a great relationship with those guys.”

THREE VISITORS FACE TOUGH DECISIONS: Auburn is a finalist for three of this weekend’s official visitors, who could all have a decision this week. Four-star running back Johnathan Ford from New Hope (Ala.) High, 3-star athlete Jonathan Walton from Bayside Academy in Daphne. Ala., and 3-star offensive guard Wilson Bell from Blount in Mobile, Ala., all had good visits to Auburn.

Ford is committed to Vanderbilt but is thinking things over after visiting Auburn and adding offers from Florida State and Georgia.

Walton said it’s dead even between Auburn and South Carolina.

“Both of them are amazing coaching staffs,” Walton said. “I just got a good vibe from them. The people, the fans, the support they have, it makes it hard to make a decision.”

Carter already has two dozen offers.

Bell is trying to decide between Auburn and Florida State while still technically being committed to UCF.
