Adding a recruit with a verified 4.4 40 time is never a bad thing. Doing it on Thanksgiving Day is a nice holiday trip.
Noah Igbinoghene (6-foot-0, 190 pounds, Trussville, AL) made a slight surprise on Thanksgiving, when he spurned Notre Dame to announce his commitment to Auburn.
Igbinoghene had been considering Notre Dame and Duke before Auburn jumped in late to the party with an offer. The chance to play for the in-state school must have been a significant factor for Igbinoghene, as he didn’t take long to announce his commitment after that offer.
Igbinoghene is the 16th commitment for Auburn’s 2017 class. That class currently ranks 11th in the nation over at 247Sports.
