One of Auburn's top recruits is gaining momentum as one of the best players in the nation. 247Sports and Rivals.com have elevated current Tigers commit Carl Lawson to a five-star recruit.
Lawson is now the number one weakside defensive end in the nation according to 247Sports. The five-star recruit from Alpharetta, Georgia spent this past weekend at Auburn for the Big Cat Recruiting Event.
Auburn had nearly 30 prospects on campus, including several previously-committed players. The Tigers landed one commitment out of the weekend in tight end Arshad Jackson from Lovejoy, Georgia.
Jackson had offers from six other SEC programs. He is the Tigers 10th commitment for the 2013 signing class.
