Auburn picks up commitment from 4-star 2020 JUCO defensive end
After losing guys like Derrick Brown, Marlon Davidson and Nick Coe this offseason, the Auburn Tigers needed to reload along the defensive line.
On Sunday, they took a big step toward doing just that, landing the top JUCO defensive end in the 2020 class.
As you can see below, it was announced on Sunday afternoon that 4-star DE Deandre Butler would be attending Auburn this fall:

Per the 247Sports composite rankings, Butler is the No. 7 overall JUCO player in the 2020 class, the No. 1 strong-side defensive end and the No. 3 JUCO prospect from Georgia. He played at Independence Community College the past couple of years.
The Tigers now have 25 players in their 2020 recruiting class, which currently ranks No. 7 in the nation and No. 5 in the SEC, per 247Sports.
