Auburn offers 5-star EDGE Elijah Rushing


Auburn has entered the mix for one of the top recruits in the country.

On Sunday the Tigers offered five-star edge rusher Elijah Rushing. The 6-foot-6, 255-pounder announced the news on Twitter.

He is the No. 16 overall player and No. 3 EDGE rusher in the 247Sports Composite ranking. The Tuscon native is also the No. 2 player in Arizona.

Auburn will have ground to make up as Rushing had narrowed his schools to a top 12 of Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Oregon, Tennessee, UCLA, USC, and Washington. However, he has stated other schools could enter the picture and that is exactly what defensive line coach Jeremy Garrett and Auburn are trying to do.

Rushing had a monster junior season for Salpointe Catholic High School, making 73 tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss, 11.5 sacks, and 59 quarterback hurries in 12 games.
