Vigor 4-star Defensive End Justin Thornton is the latest star recruit from the Mobile-area to commit to Auburn.
Thornton made the decision, early Mother’s Day morning at his church, which was originally reported to come down between LSU or Auburn.
Texas A&M was rumored to have an outside chance, because Thornton’s father lives near the Dallas area, but that was never a major factor.
He named LSU his leading favorite this past month, but the latest trend of commits from his peers only made this decision easier.
Thornton joins fellow Vigor star Deshaun Davis and St. Paul’s Tre’ Williams and Josh Casher as the major recruits to commit to the Tigers this offseason.
