Pilson still committed to Auburn

In the wake of Tommy Tuberville’s departure from Auburn, one of the key concerns for the Tigers has been recruiting.

Many Auburn recruits are unsure of what will happen with the situation, and several have de-committed.

Greenville senior defensive lineman Jamontay Pilson, who has committed to Auburn, said he’s still committed, but he’s also leaving his options open.

“This has opened my vision to look at other colleges,” he said.

Florida and Oklahoma State have already expressed interest in him, Pilson said.

Pilson also said that Auburn assistant coach James Willis visited earlier in the week, but that was before Tuberville’s resignation.

“He didn’t say anything about it,” Pilson said. “I’m going to try to get up with him.”

While Pilson is still committed, Auburn hasn’t been as lucky with other recruits.

The Birmingham News reported that the Tigers have lost at least four senior recruits: defensive back David Conner of Batesville, Miss., defensive lineman Montez Robinson of Avon, Ind., defensive lineman Terrance Coleman of Mobile, and running back Rodney Scott of Cross City, Fla.
