Former Auburn commit looking for new home

After a mutual parting of the ways with Auburn earlier this month, former Tigers commit Michael Flint of Oxford (Ala.) re-started the recruiting process.
"I committed last year during the Arkansas game," Flint told Rivals.com. "I was out of touch with it for awhile."
Now that Flint is back on the market, the 6-foot-4, 303-pound offensive lineman apparently has plenty of options.
"I have offers from all the SEC schools," he said.
One of those schools is Tennessee. According to Flint, he visited the Volunteers last weekend, and the trip went well.
"I got to meet with the coaches and I did kind of a little mini-camp with them and stuff," Flint said. "It was pretty fun. I toured the campus. It's the first visit I've gotten to do because I was committed to Auburn so long. Tennessee is probably recruiting me the hardest at the moment."
Next up for Flint: a possible trip to Notre Dame.
"I may drive to Notre Dame this summer," Flint said. "I haven't decided when yet. Sometime in July probably. The end of July. I'm also going to visit Oregon. Me [and teammates] Kwon Alexander and Trae Elston. That will probably be an official because it's so far away.
Right now, Flint has no leaders, he said.
"It's too early for that," Flint said. "[His de-commitment] just happened not that long ago. It's too soon since I just opened it back up."
Flint plans to commit during the Under Armour All-American Game in January.
"I'm trying to narrow it down as fast as I can," he said. "I need to get in as many visits as I can since I'm graduating early. I plan on taking all five official visits."
