The Auburn Tigers continue their long-standing tradition of stocking up on players from Atlanta as they received a commitment on Thursday from one of the best wide receivers in the South.
Antonio Goodwin, a 6-foot-2, 170-pound rising senior at Atlanta’s Booker T. Washington High School, has decided to sign with the Tigers, according to report Rivals.com. Rivals ranks Goodwin as a four-star recruit and the 37th ranked wideout in the country.
Goodwin did not immediately return messages seeking comment. But he reportedly visited Auburn this past weekend and that “sealed it with me,” he told auburn.rivals.com.
With Goodwin’s commitment, the Tigers actually have more recruits coming from Metro Atlanta (5) than they do the entire state of Alabama (4). He joins LB Jessell Curry (Buford), ATH Shaun Kitchens (College Park), DB Demetrice McNeal (College Park) and DB Jonathan Mincy (Decatur).
Auburn now has 12 commitments overall for its 2010 class.
I’ll update this report as soon as I hear back from Antonio or his coach.
