Delaine Commits!

Auburn picked up its fifteenth commitment today from in-state defensive end Justin Delaine (he is not in the Rivals or Scout databases yet). He picked up an offer today and committed immediately. Delaine has not been rated by any databases yet due to his coach not sending out his film. Today was the first time I had even heard of him. Delaine is supposed to be a stud who is an unknown in the state of Alabama.

He is 6'5", 225 lbs and runs a 4.5 second 40 yard dash. He is a track guy and projects as a speedy defensive end. He runs the 200 meter dash and 200 meter hurdles. Transferred from Sumter Count HS to Linden HS for this year. I am hearing Alabama insiders are even saying he is a real sleeper. Other offers include Troy, South Alabama, Mississippi State and Southern Miss but I expect more to come rolling in. All four teams that have seen him live offered him almost immediately.

"He's an active player who doesn't ever quit...he's got a good motor". --Stacey Watters, head coach.

Delaine had around 60 tackles and 12 sacks last season. He is possibly a sign and place commitment according to Rivals. He is still very raw but uses his hands well.

This information I am pulling from something he filled out himself as a sophomore. As a sophomore, he had interest in Auburn, FSU, UNC, Texas A&M and Michigan State. Plays baseball, football, basketball and runs track.

He was recruited by Phillip Lolley. More still to come....

  5. I heard though he's a sign and place commit. Is he going to qualify. I hope he does because he looks good.

  6. Can't play the "sign and place" game too carelessly with the 28 signee limit. I hope our staff at least thinks he will qualify.

  7. Already passed the exit exam and the GPA fix is doable.

  8. A committment wouldnt of been taken unless he is expected to qualify.

    Delaine > Neron Ball and this season he will give TJ Stripling a run for his money.
