Thomas O'Reilly is a Tiger!
Auburn picked up it's fourth commitment for the 2011 class today. Thomas O'Reilly, one of the top offensive line prospects in the country and possibly the top offensive line prospect in Georgia committed to play for the Tigers. O'Reilly hails from Pope high-school in Marietta, Georgia and is a massive 6'3", 315 pounds. O'Reilly chose Auburn over offers from several top programs across the country including FSU, Ga Tech, Maryland, Miss St., NC State and several others. O'Reilly says he always dreamed of playing football in the SEC and the family atmosphere he felt on his trips to Auburn was too much for him to turn down. O'Reilly will get a head start on his college career, as he plans to graduate high-school in December and enroll at Auburn in January so he can go through spring practice. O'Reilly is not only known for having great footwork for a player his size, but also claims a 340 pound bench press and a 585 pound squat. He's also a good student and shouldn't have any trouble qualifying. He joins Spencer Region, Anthony Swain and Izauea Lanier as the first four Auburn Tiger commitments for the 2011 class. Welcome to the family Thomas! War Eagle!
