Auburn secured its third verbal commitment in November on Saturday.
Defensive end Paul James of Copiah-Lincoln Community College (Wesson, Miss.) committed to the Tigers late Saturday evening, SEC Country has confirmed.
The move comes as no surprise. James has visited Auburn twice in the past two months, including an official visit he took on Nov. 14. His only other reported offer came from Mississippi State.
The 6-foot-4, 255-pound James gives Auburn its 15th commitment in next year’s recruiting class and the fourth defensive lineman overall. The Tigers now boast the No. 19 recruiting class in the country, per 247Sports.com.
