For those who have taken a look at the blog as the recruiting cycle has wound down, most know that Martin Luther King safety Jordan Moore was scheduled to announce his decision between Auburn and TCU following tonight’s Hawks game.
Moore, whose stock shot up after he played safety the last three games of Martin Luther King’s season, chose TCU, leaving Auburn with 15 commitments on the eve of national signing day. Originally a receiver, Moore’s tape on a safety sent his stock soaring, but he stuck with the two schools he chose at first, and ended up going with TCU, a team that had paid him a lot of attention right from the start.
Moore was a three-star safety, and Auburn still has eight more targets scheduled to make decisions in the morning.
Moore’s announcement came not long after the Hawks game finished, but the blog experienced a maddening loss of Internet shortly before the Hawks game ended. Luckily, it’s back up and running now, and there should be no problems on national signing day in the morning.
For all of the national signing day announcements, follow the blog on Twitter and Facebook. I’ll be up at the Auburn Athletic Complex bright and early to bring all the news and signees as the faxes roll into Auburn.
