2011 National Signing Day: Cyrus Kouandjio Will Not Decide Until Friday At Earliest, Considering Iowa Again

The Cyrus Kouandjio indecision train rolls on. One day after the DeMatha offensive lineman announced he was heading to Auburn, only to change his mind and not fax in his letter of intent, his father said that he will not be making his ultimate decision until Friday at the earliest. In addition, Iowa, a school he crossed off his list initially, is back in the picture.

Kouandjio's father, Jean Claude Kouandjio, told the Tuscaloosa News that his son still wants more time before he makes his decision.

"If he makes a decision today, you will have it tomorrow in the morning," Jean Claude Kouandjio, the father, said. "He's still confused. We keep talking with him, I don't think he's ready yet. He's the one that who wants more time." 

Jean Claude Koaundjio also said that Cyrus is deciding between Auburn, Alabama and Iowa. The first two schools were long considered to be the favorites for his services, but Iowa has re-entered the picture after reports prior to Wednesday indicated it was crossed off Cyrus' list. The family met last night to consider his options, and will meet again Thursday night after Cyrus' classes. 

Cyrus Kouandjio is the number one rated offensive line recruit in the country and number four overall according to Rivals. He announced on ESPNU that he was headed to Auburn, but never signed a letter of intent and began having second thoughts as soon as he made his decision. His brother, Arie, is an offensive lineman at Alabama.
