Cyrus Kouandjio Keeps The Family Together & Says ROLL TIDE

Cyrus Kouandjio announced to the world on National Signing Day that he wouldn't be following in his brother's footsteps at Alabama and instead would be attending rival school Auburn University for his college career. Three days later, the tables have turned.

Cyrus never signed his letter of intent to Auburn, saying that he thought he had a bit of buyer's remorse and was considering other options. At around 5:30pm this evening, he made the announcement on his personal Facebook page:
"Thanks for all the love and support from the state of Alabama, all the new relationships i have made throughout this process. . but at the end of the day.. ima keep the fam together and i must say.... ROOLLLLL TTIIIDDDEEE!!"
 Kouandjio is considered one of the top recruits in the country, and it seemed that the only reason he blurted out Auburn on Wednesday was because it was where he made his last official visit. But over the course of the last 72 hours, many family members and friends in his life swayed his decision towards the University of Alabama.

Since I now realize how similar the Alabama / Auburn rivalry is to Michigan / Ohio State, I can appreciate how big of a moment this is for the Alabama football program.
