Frost Goes With The Tigers

2011 LB/WR Kris Frost talks to FOX Sports' Laura McKeeman before he announces his commitment at the US Army All American Game. He tells us why he made his decision and explains his choice to become a Tiger in his own words.

2011 4-star OLB/WR Kris Frost (6-foot-3, 210-pounds) will be an Auburn Tiger on the next level. Frost is at peace with his decision and very excited about it but it wasn't easy to choose between Michigan, Auburn and LSU.

"I am so excited I'm going to be committing to Auburn. It was crazy because I've been a Michigan fan my whole life and my dream was to go to Michigan but I had to make the best decision for myself and that's Auburn. For a couple of days, My mom was saying I should go to Michigan even after coach Rodriguez was fired because she knew it was my dream and my dad was saying I should go to Auburn for sure. But, we talked about it as a family and I know I'm doing the right thing by being a Tiger. It's awesome."

Frost is incredibly excited to be heading to the SEC. He says playing for a winning program like Auburn is a huge motivator.

"The opportunity is amazing. I loved Michigan but the opportunity at Auburn is much better for me and I can't pass it up. I am so thankful to have the chance to play at Auburn. I won't get anything that good anywhere else."

Kris Frost came off his junior season with five interceptions, four fumbles recovered and three fumbles caused. Frost could play LB or WR on the next level and came off his senior season with some experience at WR that will help him if Auburn asks him to play offense. He has good size and strength and is very hard to bring down when he has the ball in his hands. He will learn quickly when it comes to running routes and could be a natural on offense or defense.

"I am hearing from Auburn that I could play as a freshman and that's very important to me. I am really excited that it looks like Cam Newton is coming back and you know I'll be cheering so hard for the Tigers in the national championship. Tigers all the way baby!"

Frost says he will stay solid with his commitment to Auburn and he is more than ready to be decked out in "orange and navy blue."

"I had to make the best thing happen for myself and I'm just so lucky I have that option. I love coach Chizik and the rest of the Auburn staff. It just feels like home no matter what."
