Auburn football recruiting: Deon Mix announces for Tigers

John Reed-US PRESSWIRE

Auburn receives surprise signing from Deon Mix.

In a surprise late minute flip, 4-star offensive lineman Deon Mix, the No. 458-rated recruit according to 247Sports, announced his intention to sign with Auburn during a press conference Wednesday. Mix had been a long-time Mississippi State commit, but he flipped to the Tigers on National Signing Day.

Mix, who played for Batesville Mississippi, South Panola High, chose the Tigers over MSU.

There were rumors he might commit to Auburn, but the chance of the flip were low, since offensive linemen were not a priority this year for Auburn.

Mix was the 25th-highest offensive lineman in the 247Sports rankings, and he was ranked as the No. 7 player out of Mississippi. He joins an Auburn squad is loaded on the offensive line, so it will be interesting to see if he earns a playing spot in the coming years.
