Williamson Standouts Make Their Choice

A signing day update on Nick Fairley, Terrence Coleman and LaVoyd James is featured.

Mobile, Ala.—A trio of Williamson High School prospects, Nick Fairley, Terrence Coleman and LaVoyd James, have signed with Auburn.

Fairley signed with Auburn out of high school in 2007 and again in December out of Copiah-Lincoln Community College but didn't get all of his classwork completed in time to enroll. James Willis tried to convince him to sign with Alabama but Fairley chose Auburn.

He is expected to start off at strongside defensive end.

Coleman is the nephew of Auburn defensive end Antonio Coleman. He looked at several other schools following the coaching change, including Southern Miss, Arkansas and most recently Tennessee. He took an official visit to Knoxville this weekend and chose Auburn over Tennessee on signing day.

"I just looked at the depth charts and Tennessee had about eight defensive ends on the roster and a few more committed. I know I'll have a chance to play early at Auburn."

Like Fairley, Coleman could play end or tackle at the collegiate level and says that he's excited about being a Tiger.

"In the end I just decided Auburn was the best place for me," Coleman tells Inside The Auburn Tigers.

LaVoyd James, a 5-10, 185 receiver, was a summertime commitment to Auburn prior to his senior season and never waivered on his decision.
