On Monday, Auburn landed its third commitment for the 2015 class. Defensive back, Tony Bridges out of Mississippi Gulf Coast C.C., is unrated by 247sports.com at the moment, but it certainly says something if the Auburn coaching staff is willing to offer and accept a commitment from the 6-2, 185 pound JUCO athlete this early in the process. According to 247sports.com, Auburn offered the defensive back a couple weeks ago. Bridges joins quarterback Tyler Queen and athlete Jason Smith on the Tigers' 2015 commitment list. 

In high school, at Hattiesburg High in Mississippi, Bridges was an all-state selection, as well as a player in the Alabama-Mississippi Annual All-Star Game. During the 2013 season at Mississippi Gulf Coast, Bridges recorded 28 total tackles from the cornerback position.
