Four-star DL Liner keeps options open 

January, 1, 2013
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Four-star Dee Liner (Muscle Shoals, Ala./Muscle Shoals), an Auburn commitment, has been hesitant to give any recruiting updates since former Tigers coach Gene Chizik was let go and replaced with Gus Malzahn. But the 6-foot-3, 270-pound defensive lineman talked about his status after Day 2 of practice for the Under Armour All-America Game today at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports.

Miller Safrit/ESPN.comFive-star DL Dee Liner says while he is eager to meet with Gus Malzahn, he still is solid to Auburn.
“I am committed to Auburn, but I am keeping my options open right now since they got the new coaching staff,” Liner said. “I am getting to know them better, but I have not made an official visit there and that will really factor in when I take that trip.”

Other than Auburn, Liner said that he is also considering Alabama, Miami and LSU, although he is unsure whether any other schools are in the mix at the moment.

“I will most likely take officials to those four schools, but I am not sure if I will take a fifth yet or who it would be to,” Liner said.

As of right now his next official visit will be to check out the Hurricanes.

“I am taking an official to Miami Jan. 11, although I have not finalized the visit just yet,” Liner said. “I want to see how it is down there and get to know the coaches. Who would not want to visit Miami?”

Another school the No. 12 prospect in the country is hoping to see in person is LSU.
