Auburn RB commit looking around?

By Dave Hooker

Jordan Wilkins is still committed to Auburn.

However, with three other SEC schools chasing the ESPN 300 tailback, that might not be the case for long.

"As of right now I am," the prospect from Cordova (Tenn.) Saint Benedict said when asked if he was still committed to the Tigers. "Not sure if I will stay."

Wilkins, the No. 233 prospect in the country and No. 3 prospect in Tennessee, committed to Auburn in July. Since, the Tigers fired head coach Gene Chizik after a 2-10 season.

Wilkins complimented Auburn's decision to hire Gus Malzahn last month. However, the coaching change still prompted the ESPN 300 prospect to evaluate other SEC options.

Wilkins said he will take an official visit to Ole Miss this weekend. It was thought Wilkins would visit Arkansas this weekend but that visit is on hold. Wilkins said he probably still take an official visit to Arkansas and likely one to Vanderbilt.

For now, he is only considering Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, Auburn and Arkansas. Tennessee tried to make a push for the in-state standout to no avail.

Wilkins said he is very much aware what is going on at Ole Miss. The Rebels have the No. 21 class in the nation and are thought to be on the verge of landing a handful of other top prospects.

"It definitely helps," he said when asked if the Rebels' 2014 class would affect his decision.
