    Earlier this spring, it seemed like only a matter of time before Tucker, Georgia, four-star linebacker Michael Harris committed to Ohio State — all he needed was the necessary test scores. But the Buckeyes have since landed Teradja Mitchell and Dallas Gant, are on the verge of accepting K'Vaughan Pope's pledge and remain in the hunt for Solomon Tuliaupupu, which leaves Harris on the outside looking in.

    The 6-foot-2, 213-pound Harris came to campus in early June, hoping to find out exactly where he fits into Ohio State's plans at the position. But seeing the writing on the wall, he committed to Auburn on Monday afternoon.

    Harris, who recorded 122 tackles, 12 tackles for a loss and five pass break ups to be named the Region 4-AAAAAA Defensive Player of the Year last season, is a big-time pickup for Auburn. He's a versatily linebacker, who can play both the inside and outside positions. There just wasn't any room left for him at Ohio State.

    Harris has been to Auburn four times this spring, including an overnight trip on Sunday that led to his pledge. His bond with linebackers coach Travis Williams is what ultimately gave the Tigers the edge over the Buckeyes and home-state Bulldogs.
