Tyler Nero wants to trade the Gulf Coast for the Plains. Nero has verbally committed to Auburn.
The Escambia County star picked Auburn over Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Florida State, South Alabama, Kentucky and Arkansas State. Nero is Auburn's 13th commitment for the Class of 2012.
Nero is a 6-foot-1, 285-pound defensive lineman. He is the second Escambia County player to commit in the past week, joining teammate Dalvin Craft, who chose Southern Miss.
