Auburn has made it into the top five of the schools being considered by offensive lineman Cyrus Kouandjio from DeMatha High School in Hyattsville, Md.
Kouandjio is also considering Alabama, where his older brother Arie Kouandjio is a freshman offensive lineman, Southern Cal, Iowa and New Mexico.
Kouandjio replaced Miami with Auburn, according to ESPN.com.
Auburn also appears to be in the running for running back Marlin Lane, who is committed to Clemson. Lane, who attends Mainland High in Daytona Beach, Fla., said his recruitment will come down to Auburn or Clemson.
“By Feb. 2 or 3, I should know where I’ll be going,” Lane told AuburnUndercover.com. “It will be one of the Tigers.”
Auburn also received a visit from running back Jeremy Hill from Baton Rouge, La. Hill recently decommitted from LSU.
Hill, whose teammate La’el Collins is committed to LSU, said he and Collins will return for a visit to Auburn in January. It will be interesting to see if LSU can try to hold on to its hometown standouts or risk losing them to a division rival at Auburn.
