Gus Malzahn and the Auburn Tigers got some bad news Tuesday night, as 4-star athlete Tray Bishop told 247Sports he was officially decommitting, and would not longer be considering the Tigers.
The 149th ranked recruit in the country, according to 247’s composite rankings, is a big loss for Auburn. But the Tigers’ loss appears to be the gain of two other SEC programs. Bishop told 247 that he was not only decommitting from Auburn, but that he would ultimately be choosing between Georgia and Florida.
With Bishop’s decommittment, the Tigers’ class shrinks to 17 players. The Bulldogs and Gators reportedly both prefer him on the defensive side on the ball.
Having just decommitted, Bishop has said there is no timetable for when he’ll make his decision decision.
