Recruit Raashed Kennion flips for Auburn Tigers

Posted: Updated:

Raashed Kennion has switched his commitment and says he will sign with Auburn.

Kennion had previously committed to Cincinnati, who is coached by former Tigers coach Tommy Tuberville.

Kennion is a three-star defensive line prospect from Florida. He had 54 tackles and six sacks last season for First Coast High School.

"The first thing that stands out about Kennion obviously is his frame and length," 247Sports recruiting analyst JC Shurburtt said. "He's somewhat raw and developmental, but the raw tools are there and you can't coach what he has--which is raw ability to be an excellent pass rusher. Auburn has a need for defensive ends with length in this class and he certainly fills one."

Auburn has 12 commitments in it's 2014 signing class.
