Auburn OL pledge flips commitment to Notre Dame
Back in May, Auburn landed Caleb Johnson’s commitment. On Thursday, the 3-star offensive tackle flipped his commitment to Notre Dame.
“I would like to thank Coach Bicknell and Coach Malzahn along with the Auburn fan base for their support,” Johnson wrote in a note shared to his Twitter account. “This has been one of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make but I have to make the best decision for me. With that being said I am now committed to the University of Notre Dame.”
Out of Trinity Catholic in Ocala, Florida, Johnson is rated the No. 28 offensive tackle, No. 60 recruit in the Sunshine State and No. 367 prospect overall nationally for the class of 2021 on the 247Sports Composite. In addition to Auburn and Notre Dame, Johnson had 34 other scholarship offers, including Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, LSU, Mississippi State, Missouri, Ole Miss and Tennessee.
Auburn still has 13 pledges in its 2021 class, which ranks No. 7 in the SEC and No. 20 nationally on the Composite.
