In the SEC, it is a must that you have the horses to control the line of scrimmage on offense and defense.
If you don’t, you’re in for a long Saturday.
The Auburn Tigers realize to beat the likes of Alabama and LSU on a consistent basis, you have to compete up front.
Lincoln high school (Lincoln, Alabama) Jauntavius Johnson could be the defensive tackle of the future for Auburn. At 6’3 and 323 pounds, he fits the pedigree of a SEC defensive lineman, someone who can plug up the middle and shut down the fun of opposing offenses.
Johnson ultimately chose Auburn over rival Alabama and Louisville.
“It just feels like a place that feels like home if I had to go there today,” Johnson stated during his decision.
On why he chose the Tigers:
“The first reason is it felt like home,” he said. “Another reason, I spent a long time thinking about what I should be, an in-state boy or an away-boy, I thought about that. That was another reason. Another was for my family, making them happy as to where they could travel to see me play.”
According to Rivals.com, Johnson is the No. 28 ranked defensive tackle in the country for the 2015 class.
