Nation's No. 1 WR decommits from Auburn
Auburn lost a key piece of its 2016 puzzle late Wednesday when Tampa (Fla.) Catholic five-star wide receiver Nate Craig-Myers called coach Gus Malzahn to inform him of his decommitment.
Several recruiting services including 247Sports reported the news, an early blow to one of the nation’s top classes.
“I just want to thank the Auburn coaching staff for the opportunity and seeing the potential in me. But I have decided to open up my recruitment,” Craig-Myers told 247Sports.

Last week, Baylor assistant Kendal Briles visited Craig-Myers. The Bears and Florida State are believed to be out front for the elite wideout’s services, though he claims there are no favorites.
According to the 247Sports Composite, Craig-Myers is the nation’s top-ranked wide receiver and the 23rd best player overall.
