Class of 2014 athlete Stanton Truitt commits to Auburn

Spruce Derden-US PRESSWIRE

The Tigers picked up another speedy prospect on Wednesday.

Class of 2014 athlete Stanton Truitt committed to Auburn late Wednesday morning. Truitt is the second player to commit to the Tigers in as many days and the 11th pledge in this recruiting cycle.

You may have heard of Truitt. He's to prospect to whom Tennessee sent 102 letters back in March. So much for subtlety, eh, Vols?

Truitt is rated as a four-star prospect by ESPN and a three-star by 247 Sports, Rivals and Scout. Out of Monroe (Ga.) Area High School, the major recruiting services list him as roughly 5'10 and 185 pounds. ESPN lists Truitt as the 23rd-best athlete in the class, while 247 says he's No. 51. Rivals ranks him No. 29 at his position, and Scout lists him as a cornerback, ranking him No. 60.

Despite his near-consensus three-star rating, Truitt currently has 27 offers from around the country. He chose Auburn over Florida, South Carolina, Tennessee, Nebraska and UCLA, among others.

While Truitt may be destined to play at defensive back due to his size, he'll should at least get a look at playing quarterback in Gus Malzahn's offense. He plays the position for Monroe Area, and last season, he recorded 1,438 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns to go with 764 yards and eight scores through the air. Truitt put up those numbers in just 10 games. He's also a top sprinter for his school's track team, so you know he has plenty of speed.

With the addition of Truitt, Auburn moves up to No. 18 in 247 Composite's Class of 2014 rankings.
