Mincy has been leaning towards Auburn for some time and he has had his mind made up for a couple of weeks.
The 5-foot-10, 164 pound corner out of Decatur, Ga. - Southwest Dekalb visited Auburn earlier this month and the Tigers have been number one on his list since.
This commitment is a little surpring not because of the school he chose, but because of the timing. Southwest Dekalb Head Coach Buck Godfrey typically does not allow his student-athletes to make early decisions, but he has decided to pull back on that this summer. He gave his players permission and Mincy jumped at the opportunity.
The Tigers are getting a cover corner with good ball skills, solid technique, and nice instincts.
This is commitment no. eight for the Tigers.
