Last night, Auburn’s Heisman Trophy-winner announced he was leaving school early to turn pro. Today, Auburn’s Lombardi Award-winner did the same.
Following in Cam Newton’s footsteps, defensive tackle Nick Fairley made his announcement today at his old high school in Mobile. He thanked his coaches, asked “What more could I accomplish my senior year?” and gave one final shout-out to the Tiger fans:
“I’d like to say, ‘War Eagle’ to the Auburn nation.”
Fairley is expected to be a top five pick in April’s NFL draft.
