2011 National Signing Day: Cyrus Kouandjio's Coach Confirms He Is Undecided On College Choice

We now know for sure that Cyrus Kouandjio has indeed waffled on his televised decision to commit to Auburn on National Signing Day. Kouandjio's coach at DeMatha, Bill McGregor, told Josh Barr of the Washington Post that Kouandjio has not faxed in his letter of intent and is clearly having second thoughts about his decision.

"I don't know what to say," DeMatha Coach Bill McGregor said. "I don't know if it's a lot of drama about nothing or if he wants to change his mind."    

Kouandjio, the number one offensive lineman in the country according to Rivals.com, is considering Auburn, Alabama and New Mexico as a darkhorse. He was undecided this morning, and it's clear he might still be undecided. 

Kouandjio's initial reservation with signing with Alabama may have come because he plays the same position as his brother Arie, who is currently with the Crimson Tide. However, McGregor said that shouldn't be an issue, because one can switch positions. Therefore, it remains odd to McGregor that Kouandjio is still undecided.

"I'm as surprised as anyone else right now there are second thoughts," McGregor said. "Once a kid says it [in front of the camera on signing day], that's usually it. It's signing day, I've never had this happen before. You say you're going there, that's where you're going and everybody is happy."    

McGregor said he will speak to Kouandjio later this afternoon about his decision.
