Auburn picks up commitment from nation's top kicker for 2022 class
The Auburn Tigers just landed a commitment from a kicker with a last name familiar to SEC fans.
Coach Bryan Harsin and his staff picked up a commitment from Alex McPherson, the brother of former Florida kicker Evan McPherson, who was just drafted in Round 5 of the 2021 NFL Draft this April.
As you can see below, the younger McPherson, a native of Fort Payne, Alabama, took to Twitter to announce his decision to attend Auburn starting next fall:
Per the 247Sports rankings, McPherson is the No. 1 kicker in the 2022 class and the No. 64 overall recruit from the state of Alabama.
Auburn now has 4 players in its 2022 recruiting class. Prior to McPherson’s commitment, the class ranked No. 80 in the nation and No. 14 in the SEC, per 247Sports.
