AUBURN, Ala. — Wide receiver is less than a gaping hole, but more than a need position, for Auburn going into next season.
Which is why the Tigers’ coaches have to be pumping their fists every time they get a receiver to flip his commitment in favor of the Plains.
3-star WR Dominic Walker made his announcement Friday night on 810 AM CBS Sports radio in his native Orlando that he has flipped to Auburn, after just days ago insisting he was “100 percent” committed to Nebraska.
The 6-foot-2, 190-pound Walker tweeted shortly after his declaration, “Toughest Decision of my Life man i feel like a huge truck been lifted of my back but i had to do whats best for the family and myself”
Walker’s high school teammate at Evans, Tony Stevens, flipped from Texas A&M – and returning Heisman-winning quarterback Johnny Manziel – to Auburn on Sunday.
Four-star prospects Earnest Robinson and Jason Smith, each longtime Auburn verbal commits, give Auburn some hope for the future at that position.
As usual, Walker and his potential future mates can sign their national letters of intent on Signing Day, which now sits 12 days away.
