Commitment Bart Eddins has been honored as one of the nation's top prep players.

Montgomery, Ala.–-The announcement came at 8:30 Thursday morning that Auburn commitment Bart Eddins was named to the U.S. Army All-American team.

A 6-5, 260 defensive tackle, Eddins received an official invitation to participate in the U.S. Army All-American Game that will be played Jan. 7 at the Alamodome in San Antonio.

With father Liston Eddins and mother Nancy in attendance as well as Trinity Presbyterian coach Randy Ragsdale, Eddins received the official invitation at a ceremony at his high school.

Eddins should be a defensive anchor for the Tigers for years to come.

A four-year starter for the Wildcats, Eddins is currently dominating the competition at defensive tackle and has also seen some time on offense at both tackle and fullback this season. Through six games Eddins has 39 tackles and nine sacks. He has also added a blocked kick and two fumble recoveries.

An Auburn legacy, Eddins is the son of a former Tiger while older brother Bret Eddins played for the Tigers from 2000-2004 and is currently with the New York Giants. Another brother, Blake, played basketball for the Arkansas Razorbacks.

Eddins and his teammates travel to Opp this Friday night and look to remain among the best Class 4A teams in the state. Last week the Wildcats defeated number one Geneva 17-6 with Eddins coming through with 10 tackles and three sacks in the contest.
