Auburn is now in the business of hurting feelings, it seems.
A few days ago, the Tigers snagged a stud RB out from under Florida State’s nose in Tallahassee (Fla.). Right before that, they swayed one of Ohio State’s commitments. And today? Auburn took a stroll into Georgia … which it does often … and came away with an offensive lineman the Bulldogs really wanted. Kaleb Kim, a national top 250 prospect out of Hoschton (Ga.), just picked Auburn. The offensive guard made it official at his school around 3 p.m. on Thursday.
The end result? The Tigers now have 11 commitments and are firmly in the No. 3 spot in the national rankings.
Kim had 42 pancake blocks as a junior and graded out at 88 percent on the line, garnering him all-star honors as both a sophomore and junior.
