Sigler's Set

Alabama defensive end Devaunte Sigler has moved up his announcement to tomorrow, Jan. 26, at his high school. It's a battle between Auburn and Mississippi State. "I've told the coaches (at both schools) too," Sigler said. "I thought they should know, but that's it. I'm not telling anyone else until tomorrow. I felt like it was time and I was ready to get it all over with. I really feel..."

Devaunte Sigler the 6-foot-3, 249 pound three star defensive end from Ben C. Rain High School in Mobile, Ala., has moved up his announcement to Wednesday, Jan. 26, at his high school.

Sigler, ranked as the No. 42 defensive end in the country by Scout.com, has narrowed his choices down to Mississippi State and Auburn as previously reported. He took an official visit to Mississippi State on Jan. 14.

"It was really good," he said. "They have a great campus and it's a football city. They have great support there.

"But so does Auburn," he said. "Auburn and Mississippi State are actually very similar."

Sigler visited the Tigers officially on Dec. 18, but went back to Auburn this past weekend (Jan. 22) to attend their national championship celebration.

"It was huge," he said. "I couldn't believe how many people showed up. It was fun being part of the celebration. The ceremony was a lot of fun and the players were very excited and hyped up. They said they're ready to win it again next year."

Sigler admits he's gotten to know Auburn very well. "I've already been there a bunch of times," he said. "I'm pretty comfortable there already."

Another thing he likes about the Tigers is their defense. "I love how aggressive their defense is," he said. "They never give up. Even when they are down the defense never stops and always believes they can come back."

Although Sigler isn't making his announcement until tomorrow, he says he's already made his decision. "I've told the coaches (at Mississippi State and Auburn) too," he said. "I thought they should know, but that's it. I'm not telling anyone else until tomorrow. I felt like it was time and I was ready to get it all over with.

"I really feel like I can go and be happy at either one of these schools," he said.

He reports a 2.5 GPA and a 17 ACT.
