Five-Star Prospect Signs With Chizik's Tigers

One of the nation's top-rated prospects has signed scholarship papers to play for the Tigers.

Position/Scout Ranking: Christian Westerman, 6-5, 295, Hamilton High, Chandler, Ariz., five stars, ranked as the No. 1 offensive guard prospect in the country.

Auburn's Main Competition: Originally committed to the University of Texas, changes on the Longhorns' coaching staff prompted him to re-open his recruiting and Auburn was able to land the talented lineman.

Why Auburn Signed Him: Westerman's combination of size, athleticism and aggressiveness made him a prospect wanted by the Tigers and colleges from coast to coast.

Worth Noting: He has the skills to play any of the five positions on the offensive line and he could be a tackle in college, the position he played on his state championship team.
