By ESPN.com staff
There were some uneasy moments these last few days for Auburn concerning top offensive tackle prospect Shon Coleman.
But after looking around a little bit and taking some late visits, Coleman stuck by his earlier commitment and signed with the Tigers on Wednesday.
Alabama, Arkansas and Miami were all in play down the stretch for the 6-foot-6, 270-pound Coleman, who's rated as the No. 31 offensive tackle prospect in the country by ESPN's Scouts Inc. The Olive Branch, Miss., product is the third highly rated offensive lineman in this class for the Tigers. Ed Christian of Valdosta, Ga., is the No. 18 offensive tackle prospect and Eric Mack of St. Matthews, S.C., is the No. 2 offensive guard prospect.
