Auburn’s big recruiting weekend is already paying dividends. Safety Demetruce McNeal out of Banneker High in College Park, Ga., committed to the Tigers on Saturday night according to Auburn’s three major recruiting Web sites.
The 6-foot-1, 180-pound McNeal is Auburn’s 10th commitment for 2010, joining his Banneker teammate Shaun Kitchens, an athlete who committed in April.
McNeal, who chose Auburn over offers from South Carolina and West Virginia among others, is the second defensive back of the class, joining Jonathan Mincy of Decatur, Ga.
McNeal made 74 tackles in eight games as a junior at Banneker last year. He is ranked as a 3-star recruit by both Rivals and Scout.
