Auburn added its first commitment since last month’s signing day when linebacker Cassanova McKinzy of Woodlawn (Ala.) High announced he’ll play for the Tigers on Thursday.
The Tigers’ three recruiting websites — AuburnSports.com, AuburnUndercover.com and Inside the Auburn Tigers — reported the news first.
The 6-foot-3, 225-pound McKinzy had offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Clemson, Florida State and more.
As a junior at Woodlawn, McKinzy had 123 tackles, 19 tackles for a loss and seven sacks.
He is Auburn’s second commitment for 2012, joining offensive lineman Michael Flint of Oxford, Ala.
