Almost immediately, tweets came in response hoping that he was going to announce that he had flipped his commitment to Texas A&M.
Ausbon, ranked as the No. 11 wide receiver in the Class of 2017, committed to LSU in June.
Nearly three hours later, Ausbon made the call to make the announcement rather than continue the rampant speculation.
He had flipped but from the U.S. Army All-American Bowl to the Under Armour All-America Game.
But was there more to come? Was that the announcement? Some weren’t sure.
So 25 minutes later, Ausbon returned to Twitter to confirm that was it.
Given the intertwined relationship between recruiting and social media, there is a good lesson to be learned here.
In the middle of this, the Under Armour game added another IMG player who has committed to LSU, Grant Delpit, who is ranked as the No. 9 safety in the Class of 2017 by the 247Sports Composite.
