Auburn continues to add to its 2021 class.
The latest Auburn commitment is Ian Mathews from Columbus, Georgia. In a ceremony broadcast live on his Instagram account, the Pacelli standout committed to the Tigers.
The day before his signing, Mathews shared a “top seven” graphic on Instagram featuring Auburn alongside Arkansas, Duke, Florida State, Georgia Tech, South Carolina and Virginia Tech. Chad Simmons of Rivals says Georgia Tech was the runner-up for Mathews.
Listed at 6-5, 290 pounds, Mathews is rated 3-stars, the No. 43 defensive tackle, No. 65 Peach State product and No. 743 prospect overall nationally in the class on the 247Sports Composite.
