The Auburn coaching staff, regardless of Rashaan Evans' choice, was looking to add a second safety into the mix from the get-go. They got their wish on Monday when Markell Boston, a three-star safety out of Georgia, became the Tigers' 21st commitment of the 2014 recruiting class.
Boston was previously committed to East Carolina, but the Auburn coaching staff liked what they saw in the 6-2, 200 pound safety, which resulted in an offer from Coach Malzahn. With the new offer, Boston de-committed from the Pirates and committed on the spot to the Tigers.
With Boston's commitment, the Auburn coaching staff looks to be done recruiting safeties for this class, as it now looks like former Auburn target, Lamont Simmons, is headed to USC. Boston is the third safety commit for the Tigers' 2014 class.
