RB Tank Bigsby of Hoganville, GA Friday announced a commitment to Auburn. He picked the Tigers over USC, Georgia and LSU. The Gamecocks recruited him from the angle of coming in and being their primary ballcarrier and, based on numerous reports, looked like the frontrunner. Then, they landed a commitment from an equally highly regarded back in Marshawn Lloyd. Bigsby took an official visit to USC in June and continue saying the right things about playing in the backfield with Lloyd. But that commitment appears to have impacted his feelings toward USC. Georgia also has a major running back talent committed for the 2020 class in Kendall Milton, and Bigsby has not done all that much with the Bulldogs. Auburn did not have have a 2020 running back commitment before Friday, and Bigsby’s most recent visits were to Auburn, including unofficial and official visits in early June.
