Tampa Catholic WR Nate Craig picks Auburn

Tampa Catholic wide receiver Nate Craig committed to Auburn, he announced via Twitter on Monday night. 

"First off I wanna Thank God for blessing me with the talent I have, and  want to thank all the schools that recruited me!" he tweeted. "I will be taking my talents to Auburn University!"

Craig, a four-star recruit, is No. 6 on ESPN's top 300 for the class of 2016 and had more than 40 college offers. 

He made news in January when he announced he was transferring from Pasco High School to Tampa Catholic, a move which led his former school to accuse the Crusaders of recruiting. The FHSAA is currently investigating the allegation. 

“It has nothing to do with football,” his mom, Nicki, told the Tampa Bay Times about her son's transfer at the time. “It’s all about education. That’s what people need to understand.”

As a sophomore last season, Craig was a Times' second-team all-North Suncoast selection. He recorded 203 yards on 19 receptions and 117 rushing yards on 16 carries, scoring seven total touchdowns.
