Three-star recruit chooses Louisville over Auburn

Times they are a changin’.

In a move that would have been considered unprecedented just a few years ago, three-star defensive end recruit Mike Boykin has committed to the Louisville Cardinals over the Auburn Tigers.

Boykin made the announcement on social media.

Blessed to say i have officially commited to the University of Louisville #L'sup! #BirdGang! #CardNation! 🙏🙏🙏

If there is one thing tthat is unfortunate about the announcement, it is that Boykin is a Class of 2016 standout from Carrollton (Ga.).

This season, Louisville and Auburn open the season against one another so it would have been fun to watch Boykin show Auburn what they will be missing out on.
