Vestavia Center Blake Burgess has picked Auburn.
The 6-4, 260lbs. Burgess committed to Gene Chizik's staff over the weekend. He picks Auburn over Clemson.
Burgess is projected as a defensive lineman in college, but with two years of offensive line experience at the 6A power will give Auburn coaches some options.
Burgess is expected to redshirt the first year while putting on weight. He voted All-State by the Alabama Sports Writers Association and All-Metro Birmingham after the 2008 season.
Blake is the son of syndicated radio personality Rick Burgess of Rick and Bubba, and the grandson of Division Two National Championship, Jacksonville State Coach Bill Burgess who is also an Auburn Alum who played for the Tigers back in 1961-63.
