Auburn boosted its 2021 recruiting class Tuesday, as four-star defensive tackle Lee Hunter announced his commitment to the Tigers.

Hunter is the No. 47 overall prospect in the 2021 ESPN 300 and the second-ranked athlete in the state of Alabama.

The 6-foot-5, 290-pound Hunter is Auburn's highest-ranked commitment in the 2021 class thus far and received interest from Alabama, Clemson, and Georgia, among other elite programs, according to ESPN's Tom VanHaaren.

Head coach Gus Malzahn and the Tigers currently hold three top-100 ESPN 300 recruits for 2021. They also have the eighth-ranked class in 2020.
