Huge news for the national champion Auburn Tigers.

Cyrus Kouandjio of Hyattsville, Md., just announced on ESPNU that he's signing with Auburn. He's ranked by ESPN as the No. 1 offensive tackle prospect in the country and picked Auburn over Alabama, where his brother plays.

The Tigers' offensive line class is absolutely loaded. Kouandjio joins Christian Westerman of Chandler, Ariz., in this class. Westerman is ranked by ESPN as the No. 2 offensive tackle prospect nationally. Kouandjio and Westerman are two of the top 6 prospects overall nationally.

Auburn was able to get Westerman away from Texas, and a lot of recruiting insiders thought Kouandjio was ticketed for Alabama.

Auburn, which lost four senior starters in its offensive line, also has center Reese Dismukes of Spanish Fort, Ala., already enrolled in school. Dismukes is ranked by ESPN as the No. 1 center prospect in the country.
