4* Georgia Commit Darius Slayton Visiting Auburn

247Sports is reporting that Darius Slayton, a 4* CB and Georgia commit, is in Auburn on a surprise official visit.

My first thought on seeing this was "Six feet, one inch cornerback? Yes, please." Then I saw in the above link that Auburn has changed directions and is now recruiting him as a wide receiver.

This is a promising development for the Tigers, as that's the position that Slayton would prefer to play, apparently. I'm sure that played a very large part in getting him in town for this visit.

With Slayton, the visitor's list for this weekend is starting to get even more impressive. It doesn't have the number of 5*s of last weekend's visit, but it does have some big prospects at positions Auburn is wanting to to nail down.

This is a promising development for the Tigers and definitely one to keep an eye on going forward. It may be too late, but at least they got him to campus.
