Auburn lands a pair of commits 

May, 31, 2011
Over the Memorial Day weekend, Auburn hosted its Big Cat weekend and landed a pair of prospects in offensive tackle Shane Callahan (Parker, Col./Chaparral) and defensive end Darius Philon (Prichard, Ala./Vigor).

"Actually, I am still here," Callahan said. "I was first here about a month ago for a junior day and decided to come back for Big Cat weekend. I just had a great time. It was just very relaxing hanging out with the recruits, coaches and players. Honestly, it was one of the coolest things I have ever been to."

It's unusual for Auburn to land players from the state of Colorado, but there was a tie here as Tigers assistant Jeff Grimes recruited Callahan while he was an assistant coach at Colorado.
