Auburn football: Tigers pick up verbal commitment from 2015 three-star offensive tackle Bailey Sharp

AUBURN, Ala. — Even before it took the field for A-Day, Auburn got good news in the form of another verbal commitment.

Bailey Sharp, a three-star offensive tackle from Marietta, Ga., gave his pledge to the Tigers on Saturday morning. And it was a family affair. According to all three recruiting services that cover the team — Rivals, Scout and 247Sports — 27 members of Sharp's family were on hand when he walked into Gus Malzahn's office to inform the coach of his decision.

"I didn't want to do it without my family," Sharp told "I told Coach Malzahn I want to commit with my whole family. I want my family to be committed to the Auburn family."

Sharp, who plays at Sprayberry High School, becomes the seventh commit for the Tigers' 2015 class and the second one this week. Four-star running back Kerryon Johnson chose Auburn over Alabama and Florida State in a ceremony at his high school on Tuesday.
