Why did he do it?
He did it because of his family ties and instate ties.
He is a very talented athlete who projects at linebacker in college more than likely. But, he really has the skill to play a number of positions depending on his growth in the weight room.
His frame could easily handle another 30 or 40 pounds and maybe even more. Which would make him a great prospect at tight end or even defensive end.
Sears is the sixth commitment to the Auburn Tigers and also a major showing of the strength Coach Tuberville is having in his home state.
Which is something he needs to continue to be successful in the SEC.
