Three-star safety Jordyn Peters gave Auburn its sixth in-state verbal commit Friday afternoon.
Peters committed to Auburn over a group of three finalists that included Virginia Tech and Ole Miss. The defensive back also had offers from Mississippi State, Michigan, Minnesota, Duke and Louisville.
The 6-foot-2, 185-pounder out of Muscle Shoals High School is ranked as one of the top 50 prospects in Alabama by 247 Sports.
“I’d also like to publicly thank all of the Coaches for believing in me and recruiting me, however, an opportunity of a lifetime has presented itself to me and my family,” Peters tweeted Friday. “I am happy to say that I will continue my academic and football career at Auburn University!! War Eagle!”
