The Auburn Tigers continue to roll on the recruiting trail with Gus Malzahn at the helm of the program. With three junior college players already signed on Wednesday, AU added yet another four-star prospect to their 2014 class when defensive end DaVonte Lambert flipped his commitment from Tennessee to Auburn. He has signed his national letter of intent.
Lambert, who is ranked by 24/7Sports as the No. 6 JuCo prospect in the country, spent the last two years at Georgia Military College. He was originally listed as a three-star prospect coming out of high school in 2012 and received interest from a handful of SEC programs.
The late addition of Lambert is big news for the Tigers:
JUCO signing day. Auburn signed @247sports' No. 1 receiver, No. 1 safety, No. 1 center and No. 1 defensive end in country.— Brandon Marcello (@bmarcello) December 18, 2013
That tweet refers to D'haquille Williams, the top receiver and top overall JuCo prospect in the class, as well as safety Derrick Moncrief and center Xavier Dampeer. And now with only 20 players committed for the 2014 class, there's still a good chance AU adds a couple of more highly regarded recruits before National Signing Day arrives in February.
