Five-star prep quarterback Zeke Pike of Edgewood, Kentucky has verbally committed to the Auburn Tigers and says he will sign with Coach Chizik's team next February.
Pike is a 6' 5" 230-pound high school star who visited Auburn, Tennesseee, Georgia and Clemson just last week.
Pike made the announcement today at his high school, saying of his decision, "It was a God thing- I can't explain it. I had no intention of going down there and then committing... but I didn't expect to get the feeling I got when I was there."
Tiger quarterbacks Barrett Trotter and Clint Mosley battled for the number one QB spot this spring, but Coach Gene Chizik said this morning that the quarterback battle will continue into the summer, when newcomer Kiehl Frazier will arrive.
FOX6 Sports will have highlights of today's announcement and an interview with Zeke Pike tonight at 6:20, 9:45 and 10:20.
