Andrew Bone provides a closer look at the Top 60 players in the state of Alabama prior to the 2011 season.

5. T.J. Yeldon
Scout.com four-star
No. 15 running back
Daphne High School
6-foot-1, 200-pounds

2010 stats: Yeldon finished the season with 1,112 yards with 18 touchdowns and 34 receptions for 504 yards with five touchdowns.

Recruitment: Yeldon committed to Auburn in mid-June and held scholarship offers from across the country. His final two also included Alabama.

Yeldon on his commitment to Auburn, "I get along with the coaches, the players and Auburn runs the same offense we run on my high school team," Yeldon told autigers.com. "Going to Auburn I won't have to learn a new offensive system when I get to college."

"What helps T.J. most is his size and strength," Daphne head coach Glenn Vickery said. "As a receiver his biggest asset is his route running, plus he can really catch the ball with excellent hands. At running back, he sees the field well, runs strong and hard. T.J.'s just a good player who competes with great desire."
