Auburn has added one of the top 10 in-state recruits to its 2022 recruiting class. Lanett standout Caden Story announced his pledge to the Tigers on Saturday.

Story started being recruited by Auburn under the Gus Malzahn staff and narrowed his 16 scholarship offers down to a final two of AU and Malzahn’s UCF program ahead of his commitment. The Story family is sure to be conflicted during the Iron Bowl for the next few years as Caden is the brother of Alabama defensive back Kristian Story.

Caden Story is listed at 6-4, 264 pounds and rated the No. 30 defensive lineman and No. 222 prospect overall nationally in the class of 2022 on the 247Sports Composite. Story’s recruiting profile lists Kentucky, Mississippi State, Missouri, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas A&M and Vanderbilt among his scholarship offers.

With Story on board, Auburn’s 2022 class is up to eight verbal commitments. Story’s highlights can be viewed below:
