"My momma didn't really like it up there and she figured it was best for me to finish my senior year where I started," Hardick tells Inside the Auburn Tigers. "There was a lot to it. She wanted me out of trouble."
Hardrick, at 6-6 and 320 pounds, became Auburn's sixth public commitment of the 2008 class on June 17. He says since then everything has been quiet on the recruiting front.
"I really haven't heard from Auburn or anybody," he notes. "I like it okay, but I really like the attention."
