b>Position/Scout Ranking: Jonathan Rose, 6-2, 180, Leeds, Ala., High, four stars, ranked as the No. 14 cornerback in the country.

Auburn's Main Competition: The early high school graduate who is enrolled at Auburn chose the Tigers over Alabama, Florida State and others.

Why Auburn Signed Him: An outstanding player in high school on both sides of the ball, cornerbacks are a high priority for the Tigers in this signee class and Rose was excellent at that position as a senior.

Worth Noting: The U.S. Army All-American was a key player in his team's run to a state title as a senior. He scored a pair of touchdowns and was outstanding on defense in the state championship game. Rose chose to follow in his father's (Charles Rose) and his uncle's (Courtney Rose) footsteps when he picked the Tigers.
