Auburn’s 2019 recruiting class has been bolstered with its 16th commitment.
In-state three-star cornerback Nehemiah Pritchett from Jackson High School announced his commitment to Auburn on Twitter Wednesday with the following statement:
“First and foremost I want to thank God for all of his blessings and opportunities he’s given me, I give him all the praise! I want to importantly thank my parents for being so supportive in everything I accomplish … I also want to thank my family, friends and coaches for showing endless love & care. Thanks to all the coaches that gave me an opportunity to play at their University. However, I know where I want to be!!
“And with that being said I would like to continue my academic and athletic career at Auburn University!!! WAR EAGLE”
Pritchett is the latest commit for the Tigers’ 11th ranked recruiting class, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings. The 6-foot, 172-pound defensive back ranks as the 55th best corner in the nation and the 17th best recruit in the state.
The senior chose Auburn from a litany of offers that included Indiana, Memphis, Nebraska, Ole Miss, South Alabama, Troy and UAB.
Pritchett’s commitment gives Auburn it’s second cornerback for the 2019 recruiting class, with the other being four-star Jaylin Simpson (Frederica Academy, Ga.). Though, four-star athlete Cam’Ron Kelly (Oscar Smith High School, Va.) also projects as a potential defensive back for the Tigers as well.
