4-star cornerback Stephen Roberts has flipped his commitment from Alabama to Auburn.
His change of heart is no surprise to observers and I doubt it caught the Alabama staff flatfooted either. Roberts had made several unofficial visits to Auburn from his nearby hometown of Opelika - at least 8 during the football season.
Additionally, one of his BFFs 3-star tight end Jakell Mitchell had committed to Auburn in May (and then tore his ACL in June) and it appears they want to play together at the next level.
This puts the Crimson Tide at 20 commitments for 2014.
