Kouandjio makes the switch from Auburn to Alabama
Cyrus Kouandjio made sure Auburn fans will have even more hatred towards Alabama this weekend when the top offensive line prospect spurned Auburn by signing with Alabama.
Kouandjio publicly committed to Auburn on National Signing Day but never sent in his national letter of intent. Kouandjio was having second thoughts and decided to take a few days to think about the decision. There was even talk that Iowa was in the mix before the weekend. This young man from Maryland decided Alabama was home and signed with the Crimson Tide. Quite a pick up by Alabama but recruiting fans should know Alabama has annually been at the top of recruiting since Nick Saban has been in town.
It's always great to snag a 5-star recruit but to steal one from your hated rival makes it even sweeter. Kouandjio is the #1 OL prospect in the nation and the #4 ranked overall prospect on Rivals. He's 6'7" and weighs 322 pounds. It looks like this is another example of when the rich get richer.
