Southside (Ala.) offensive lineman Tyler Carr


AUBURN, Ala. — Tuesday started off on the right foot for Auburn, as it picked up commit No. 16 for its 2015 recruiting class.

That player was Tyler Carr, a consensus four-star offensive lineman from Gadsden, Alabama. Carr's decision was made even sweeter for Auburn when considering his other finalists double as its two biggest rivals — Alabama and Georgia. He's no stranger to Auburn, as his father attended the university and he grew up attending games at Jordan-Hare Stadium. With Carr on board, the Tigers now have four offensive lineman committed for the next recruiting cycle, joining a trio of Georgians in Marquel Harrell, Kaleb Kim and Bailey Sharp.

According to 247Sports, Carr has been told by offensive line coach J.B. Grimes that he would begin his career as a tackle. Should that not work out, the 6-foot-5, 320-pound Carr would move to guard.

But the day isn't over.

Jalen Harris, a consensus three-star tight end from Montgomery, Alabama, is set to reveal his choice at 7 p.m. ET. Auburn and Alabama are considered the clear-cut favorites, but he also has LSU, Miami (Florida) and Vanderbilt among his finalists.
