Auburn continued its recruiting surge in late-January, adding a commitment from Lake Worth, Fla., running back Tre Mason.
The South Florida Sun-Sentinel first reported the news earlier this afternoon. Mason announced more officially later in the afternoon during a press conference at his high school.
The 5-foot-10, 190-pound running back had narrowed his finalists to Auburn and Ole Miss.
Rivals and Scout both rank Mason as a four-star recruit. Rivals has him as the No. 14 running back in the nation. Scout lists him as No. 29.
Never miss a local story.
Mason ran for 1,643 yards and 24 touchdowns as a senior. In his final two seasons at Park Vista High, he ran for 3,103 yards and 46 touchdowns.
He is Auburn's second potential running back in the class. Five-star recruit Brent Calloway switched from Alabama to Auburn because he said he'll get a shot at running back. Calloway is listed as the No. 5 linebacker recruit in the country by Rivals.
He is the Tigers' 21st commitment for 2011, joining Mobile defensive end Devaunte Sigler, who committed earlier Wednesday.
Auburn can sign up to 28 players on National Signing Day a week from today. Per NCAA rules, it can only enroll 25 in August.
