Carl Lawson makes it official to Auburn

Defensive end Carl Lawson (Alpharetta, Ga./Milton), the No. 2 overall prospect in the ESPN 150, signed with Auburn, as expected, on Wednesday in a ceremony at his high school. Lawson was an early pledge to the Tigers but wavered in his commitment in recent months. He reaffirmed the pledge shortly before signing day.

"I committed to Auburn the school, not the coaching staff," Lawson said Wednesday in an interview on ESPNU.
