4-star RB Cartavious 'Tank' Bigsby makes his college decision

The top running back in Georgia picked Auburn University

HOGANSVILLE, Ga. — Cartavious "Tank" Bigsby announced he will attend Auburn University next year.

The 4-star running back out of Callaway High School made his decision live Friday on 11Alive..  


Bigby is the No. 6 recruit in the state and the top running back in Georgia, according to 11Alive's recruiting partner Rivals.

"The atmosphere, the coaches and just being around good people," Bigsby said when asked what he liked about Auburn. "They remind me so much of my own team. I feel like it's home there."

He said it took a lot of thought. "I was just praying to God."

Bigsby narrowed it down to four schools, Auburn, Georgia, LSU and South Carolina. Rivals' FutureCast predicted he would choose Auburn, especially after 5-star running back Kendall Milton committed to Georgia last month.
