Cyrus Saga Not Over

Northeast Recruiting Reporter
Posted Feb 4, 2011


The nation's No. 2 prospect Cyrus Kouandjio still has not made up his mind over Auburn or Alabama.

Moments after the nation's No. 2 recruit Cyrus Kouandjio announced on national television Wednesday that he will play for Auburn University, he expressed doubts about his choice.

“There’s doubt in my mind,” he said in an interview with his family. “There’s still a little bit of questioning in my mind. I have the time, but for right now: Auburn. . . . We’ll see.”

Two days later, the 6-foot-7, 320-pound offensive tackle from DeMatha (Hyattsville, Md) has yet to take the next step and continues to wrestle between the two rival schools - Auburn and Alabama.

“There are a lot of good things about Alabama. There are a lot of good things and we’ll see,” said Kouandijo, whose older brother Arie plays for the Tide.

But when will we get an answer?

"You know as much as I know right now," DeMatha Coach Bill McGregor said Friday. "Right now I am not sure what he is going to do. He doesn't know what he is going to do. He is still not sure between Alabama and Auburn. He is one foot in and one foot out. I honestly just hope he can come to a decision here soon and get this over with."

The reality is; however, no one knows when that decision will come. It is on Kouandjio's clock and at this point in time Kouandjio is not available for any interviews.

"We are not allowing him to talk to any media," said McGregor. "We will not do a formal announcement. When he is ready, he will sign the papers and do that privately."
