Auburn SID attempts to explain Rashaan Evans website fail

Auburn had a moment to forget on National Signing Day when homegrown 5-star talent Rashaan Evans picked Alabama over the Tigers. Most believed that Gus Malzahn would be able to close the deal, but at the end of the day, Nick Saban and the Tide proved too strong.

Just before Evans announced his commitment, Martin Rickman shared with Twitter that Auburn had already posted Evans’ profile to the Tigers’ website, which you can see here.

The premature fail instantly caught traction following Evans’ pledge to the Tide. According to Auburn SID Kirk Sampson, however, the university did not prematurely post his bio.

This is probably the moment Auburn should just own up to the fail instead of trying to make an explanation. The fact of the matter is it was posted prematurely, coding or no coding.
