In today's edition of Auburn Tigers news, Auburn football adds another commit to the class of 2025 and a former 2024 commit flips to Maryland

Over the weekend, the Auburn football program hosted 3-star tight end Hollis Davidson for a campus visit. The TE visited previously for a game day, but made this trip alongside Auburn tight end commit Ryan Ghea, and the pair spent time getting a look at the facilities and meeting with the coaching staff. According to Auburn Rivals, getting to meet with coaches was a big deal for the tight end:

"I enjoyed the day, Coach Ben (Aigamaua), Coach Logan (Bradley), everybody was showing a lot of love and it was amazing," Davidson said of the visit.

Following the visit, Davidson was ready to join ranks with fellow TE Ghea and the Auburn Tigers. Davidson, a native of Peachtree City, Georgia, is ranked as the #21 tight end in the recruiting class of 2025 and the #42 recruit out of the Peach State. He is the eighth commit to join the Tigers' class of 2025 and the second tight end.

Former 2024 commit flips to Maryland

It's national signing day, but there is not a lot of action expected from the Auburn football program, which solidified most of its 2024 class in December during the early national signing period. However, one commit that didn't sign with the Tigers at the end of last year has flipped his commitment.

Defensive lineman Dimitry Nicolas committed to Auburn back in August, but has flipped and will officially sign with the Maryland Terrapins. The Terps recently handed the Tigers a massive L in the Music City Bowl, and then Maryland's highest ranked recruit from last year, tight end Rico Walker, transferred to the Plains.

Nicolas' flip is somewhat unsurprising considering the fact that he did not sign in December and was being actively recruited by multiple other programs. The Tigers are still bringing in several new defensive linemen — two transfers and one high school signee.
