The Auburn Tigers added another piece to the 2015 recruiting class when they secured a commitment from JuCo cornerback Tony Bridges on Monday.

The 6’2, 185-pound Bridges attended Hattiesburg High School in Hattiesburg, Mississippi before attending Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.

In high school, Bridges competed in the annual Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Game. He was an all-state selection at Hattiesburg High.

In 2013, Bridges recorded 28 total tackles for Mississippi Gulf Coast, with 23 solo stops.

“I talked to Coach [Auburn cornerbacks coach Melvin] Smith and all the coaches this morning,” Bridges told Keith Niebuhr of Auburn Undercover. ”I told them, War Eagle!”

“I feel like it’s a good program,” Bridges said. “And for me, I’m from Collins, Miss. That’s a small town. SEC football is as big as it gets.”

Bridges compares himself to Richard Sherman and will have two years of eligibility left when he joins the Tigers in 2015.

He is the third commitment for the Tigers in the class of 2015. He joins Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College teammate Jason Smith and North Cobb High School quarterback Tyler Queen.

Smith is a 6’1, 180-pound athlete, who like Bridges, is not rated by any recruiting sites and Queen is a 6’2, 229-pound, who is considered a 4-star prospect and the ninth-best pocket passer prospect in the country, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.
