Super seal: RB Peyton Barber to Auburn

AUBURN, Ala. — While the nation was captivated by a lights-out Super Bowl Sunday night, Peyton Barber was settling in to his decision to flip from Ole Miss to Auburn, verbally committing to play running back for the Tigers after an official visit went well this weekend.

In effect, Auburn trades one four-star running back prospect for another in exchange with Ole Miss. Jordan Wilkins decommitted from Auburn on Jan. 20, and pledged to the Rebels Saturday night.

On the other hand, Barber changed his tune from Hotty Toddy to War Eagle in a matter of hours.

A 5-foot-10, 210-pounder with some breakout speed, Barber is a high school teammate of blue-chip defensive end Carl Lawson, who firmed his commitment earlier Sunday. Auburn now has 20 commits (and counting) with less than 48 hours remaining to National Signing Day.

This makes the third different school across the country which will be shipping multiple products to the Plains – receivers Tony Stevens and Dominic Walker hail from Evans HS in Orlando, while Devonte Danzey, Ben Bradley and Kenny Flowers played last year at Hutchinson CC in Kansas.

  1. As far as I am concerned, this staff has done an execellent job. The way I look at it, we are playing with house money now. If we get Foster that would be incredible, but if not, I still count this class a sucess.

  2. I think Foster goes to bamer due to big money and the pot called the kettle black when they claimed Cam got money…It’s sad but true that bamer money buys a lot of talent down at tuscaloser :(
