In today’s edition of Auburn Tigers News, the Auburn football program has secured another 2025 commit, and a 4-star running back feels he fits perfectly with the Tigers.

Inspired by his close friend and teammate Blake Woodby’s official visit to Auburn, 4-star linebacker Bryce Deas visited the campus over the weekend for a private workout and camp. After spending two days at Auburn, Deas received an offer and committed on Tuesday.

During his private workout, Deas worked closely with defensive coordinator DJ Durkin. The time spent with the coaches made his decision straightforward.

“You can tell that they want to make you better,” Deas told Auburn Undercover. “They touch on every point and everything I messed up on and have a coaching point on it. Just me being able to be coachable, that’s going to be good for both of us: me and Coach Durkin.”

Deas is ranked as the #16 recruit out of Maryland and the #66 linebacker in the class of 2025. However, he is being recruited to Auburn as a ‘defensive athlete’ capable of playing multiple positions for the Tigers.

Additionally, 4-star running back Shekai Mills-Knight, who has become a priority for Auburn and running backs coach Derrick Nix, visited over the weekend. Mills-Knight has also developed a strong relationship with head coach Hugh Freeze, who sees him as an ideal fit for the team.

“It was really real, he’s one of the more down to earth coaches, he’s really transparent,” Mills-Knight told Auburn Rivals. “He was telling me he needs me here. He wants me, he likes the person I am and I fit the culture.”

Ranked as the #33 running back in the class of 2025, Mills-Knight has already visited Alabama, Miami, and Michigan and plans to visit Ole Miss and Tennessee soon. He hopes to make his final decision before starting his senior year.
