A 6-3, 258 defensive end and defensive tackle, Pilson is expected to be one of the top prospects in the state of Alabama this fall as a senior. He was in attendance at Saturday's A-Day game and says he knew it was time to make his decision.
"Yes sir, I committed," Pilson tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I just wanted to go ahead and do it. The game was fun. I told Coach (Tommy Tuberville) today. He was pretty excited."
Pilson was a standout at the Scout.com Combine in Mobile earlier this year. He says he plans to attend the Scout.com Elite Camp in Auburn on April 27 as well.
"My strength is run stopping and being able to move," says Pilson, who had 50 solo tackles as a junior with 47 assists. "Those are my strengths. I have to work on seeing the whole field. Our coaches tell me I've got tunnel vision when the play starts so I'm going to work on that."
The lineman had 12 quarterback sacks as a junior.
