It’s not exactly Dewey defeats Truman…

… but it’s still pretty amusing.

Five-star linebacker Rashaan Evans — by far the most-watched recruit for both Auburn and Alabama fans on Signing Day — stunned many in his hometown of Auburn by choosing the Crimson Tide. A huge win for Nick Saban and a big blow for the Tigers (who had been considered the favorite until recently), Evans is the No. 15 overall player in the Top 247.

How big a surprise was Evans’ decision? This appeared on Auburn’s site — complete with highlight video — as the state held its breath for Evans’ announcement:


Somewhere out in some trailer park, Harvey Updyke silently pumps his fist.

    The coming self reported NCAA violation will also be amusing. That somebody will be stuck doing some paperwork over it makes me smile a little too much.

    And of course one of the very first comments on the Auburn site is all about he should never have been classed as a 5* recruit in the first place.

    Those grapes sour much?

    Harvey Updyke may be pumping his fist somewhere but it won’t be silently.
