Austin Ausberry, a four-star cornerback from University Lab High School in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, announced his commitment to Auburn live on CBS Sports HQ on Monday afternoon. Ausberry chose the Tigers over LSU, Alabama, Florida and Michigan. It's a big surprise considering the 247Sports crystal ball had Ausberry staying in his hometown and playing for new coach Brian Kelly at LSU instead of heading to the Plains to play for Bryan Harsin.
"It was a gut feeling," Ausberry said of his commitment. "I felt like it was best for me and my family."
Ausberry is ranked No. 177 overall and is the No. 22 cornerback in the 2022 recruiting class.
