AUBURN, Ala. — A spectacular week on the recruiting trail for Auburn picked up even more momentum Thursday.
Kaleb Kim, a four-star offensive lineman from Mill Creek High School in Hoschton, Ga., chose Auburn over his other finalist, Georgia, during a ceremony at the school Thursday afternoon. He has played tackle during his high school career, but has the versatility to stand in at any spot on the line. According to the Gwinnett Daily Post, Kim graded out at 88 percent last season with 37 pancake blocks. The rising senior has also been named a first-team all-county selection each of the past two seasons by the Touchdown Club of Gwinnett.
Kim's pledge continues an incredible run of success for the Tigers' 2015 recruiting efforts, becoming the fifth commitment in six days. He's also the third offensive lineman to commit during that span, joining two fellow Georgians. Bailey Sharp, a four-star offensive tackle from Sprayberry High School, pledged prior to the A-Day game on Saturday, while Marquel Harrell, a three-star offensive guard from Creekside High School, committed on Monday.
Auburn now has 11 verbal commits for its 2015 class.
