Running Back On Board With the Tigers

Florida prep star Tre Mason has signed scholarship papers to play for the Tigers.

Position/Scout Ranking: Tre Mason, Park Vista High, Lake Worth, Fla., four stars, ranked as the No. 29 tailback prospect in the country.

Auburn's Main Competition: Ole Miss turned out to be the team to beat for the running back, who also seriously considered Michigan, West Virginia and Texas A&M.

Why Auburn Signed Him: With just two returning scholarship tailbacks from the 2010 team with Mario Fannin graduating, running backs are a very high priority for this signing class.

Worth Noting: A player who produced three 1,000-plus seasons for rushing yardage, he will have a chance to play early and often for the Tigers in 2011.
