Will Latu No Longer An Auburn Commitment

The top JUCO offensive lineman is no longer headed to the SEC.

Will Latu, the top junior college offensive lineman in the country, is no longer committed to the Auburn Tigers, and will visit the Florida State Seminoles per a report from the St. Pete Times:

Latu has re-opened his recruiting after a poor academic semester in the fall left him unable to qualify to enroll at Auburn, where he had verbally committed in July, in time to join the team for the summer workouts.

He said he failed some classes in the fall, and while he still expects to graduate in the spring, making up those classes to be eligible in the SEC would take up half his summer.

"It's just a whole bunch of hassle,'' he said. "I'm not saying I can't do it, but with another school I can graduate in May and be there in June,'' said Latu. "If I were to stay with Auburn I wouldn't graduate until the summer and not get there until August, and everything would be rushed.''

Latu, originally from the Bay Area, attended Gibbs High School. He didn't qualify out of high school and went to the College of the Canyons. He then committed to West Virginia before decommitting and committing to Auburn.

Latu is 6'5", 320 pounds and has good power and quickness for his size.
