Alabama State flips Auburn commit

After one visit Jonathan Fells falls for Alabama State.

Jonathan Fells, an All-State running back from Carroll High School in Ozark, Alabama, was super excited about committing to Auburn in December 2018. He didn’t hold an offer but was expected to walk-on to the SEC school.

But the new year brought a new attitude for the 6 ft., 205 lb running back, who’s also listed as a cornerback and defensive end. After taking a visit to ASU this past weekend, he signed with the Hornets on Wednesday morning.

According to his Hudl profile, Fells has an outstanding combination of speed and strength, and describes himself as a fan of contact.
