HOOVER, Ala. — Though Auburn is still a day away from making its appearance at the Wynfrey Hotel for Day 2 of the SEC Media Days, the Tigers made some news on Tuesday when they picked up therir first quarterback commit for the 2014 recruiting class. Like many others seem to do in these days of social media, Sean White announced the news himself on his personal Twitter account.
“”I have just committed to Auburn University! WAR EAGLE!!!!!” White tweeted.
White, who plays for University School in Hollywood, Fla., was an Elite 11 camp participant, winning MVP honors at the annual quarterback gathering. He passed for 3,348 yards and 40 touchdowns (against six interceptions) as a junior. He put up those stats playing at Chaminade-Madonna, a college preparatory school also located in Hollywood, last season. White, a pro-style quarterback considered a three-star prospect by most, is known for his accuracy after completing on 69.3 percent (183-for-264) of his attempts last year.
White became the 10th pledge of Auburn’s 2014 recruiting class. Class of 2015 quarterback prospect Tyler Queen of Kennesaw, Ga., gave his commitment to the Tigers last week.
