Auburn added ESPN 300 linebacker Wesley Steiner to its 2020 recruiting class on Tuesday. Steiner is the No. 35 ranked prospect overall and chose the Tigers over Stanford and LSU.
Steiner made the announcement on Twitter.
At 6-foot, 220 pounds, Steiner is an athletic linebacker and one of the top prospects from the state of Georgia. Coming from Houston County High School in Warner Robins, Georgia, Steiner is the No. 6 ranked recruit from Georgia.
Of the 18 commits ranked in the top 25 in the state, including Steiner, only three are committed to Georgia. Among the seven commits in the state's top 10, two are committed to Georgia.
Auburn now has four of those top-25 Peach State prospects committed in its class with Steiner, receivers Kobe Hudson and Ze'vian Capers and offensive lineman Tate Johnson.
Adding Steiner is a big boost to the future defense and a big boost to the class overall. The Tigers now have six ESPN 300 commitments in the No. 18 ranked class overall.
