Another one-time Florida State commitment has landed elsewhere.
Lowndes offensive lineman Ed Christian, an AJC Super 11 selection, committed to Auburn after going there on an official visit this past weekend. The 6-foot-5, 280-pound tackle originally committed to the Seminoles way back in February, just a week after national signing day. He “decommitted” to FSU late last month when questions started to arise over the future of the program. He attended the Auburn-Ball State game on an unofficial visit that weekend.
Christian credited Auburn assistant coach Curtis Luper for reigniting his interest in Auburn. He said Luper called him out of the blue last month.
“I wanted to experience another college,” Christian told Auburn.Scout.com. “I gave them that chance and it was my overall best visit to a school. This school (Auburn) treats you the best. . . .This commitment is more personal than the one at FSU. It’s more personal. Their approach is way different.”
He also considered Alabama, Tennessee and Florida.
Christian became the second Super 11 designate to pull a switch over the weekend. Gainesville wide receiver Tai-ler Jones flipped from Stanford to Notre Dame on Sunday.
Christian is ranked the No. 17 offensive tackle in the country by Scout.com, No. 19 by ESPN and No. 29 by Rivals.
