"I had to make the best thing happen for myself and I'm just so lucky I have that option," Frost said. "I love Coach (Gene) Chizik and the rest of the Auburn staff. It just feels like home no matter what."

Leaning to Auburn much of the time early in the recruiting process, Frost actually committed to the Michigan Wolverines but a coaching change in Ann Arbor made for a different climate for Frost. Seeing the chance to compete early for playing time at a number of different positions for the Tigers he said coach Gene Chizik's program is the one for him.
"The opportunity is amazing. I loved Michigan but the opportunity at Auburn is much better for me and I can't pass it up. I am so thankful to have the chance to play at Auburn. I won't get anything that good anywhere else."
Kris Frost can play either offense or defense.
Rated as a four-star prospect and the number 18 outside linebacker in the nation by Scout.com, Frost is being recruited as an athlete by Auburn.
Frost took several bus trips to Auburn this year for summer camps and to football games. His last one was to see Auburn's victory over Georgia and he noted he loved the atmosphere. "The LSU game was really something," he said. "I didn't think anything could really top it, but the Georgia game did."
A player recruited by North Carolina, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Clemson, Texas A&M and many others, he was one of the prospects who came to Auburn in May for AU's Big Cat Weekend.
