The Auburn Tigers have just received a commitment from the Class of 2024's No. 1-rated quarterback in the state of Arkansas. 

Walker White, a junior at Little Rock Christian Academy, officially announced his decision to join the Tigers this Friday. 

Ranked as 247Sports' 13th-best quarterback in the 2024 class, White becomes the first four-star signal caller to commit to Auburn under head coach Hugh Freeze. 

White narrowed his commitment decision down to three schools yesterday; Baylor, Clemson and Auburn. 

Though he chose Freeze's Tigers today, White had plenty of interest from programs all across the country. He'd previously received offers from Alabama, Ole Miss, LSU, Oklahoma and Arkansas - just to name a few. 

Here's what White said about his visit to Auburn earlier this year, per 247Sports' Steve Wiltfong:

"When I went to Auburn one of the first things and how they introduced things, all the coaches met me at the front of the facility. It was very cool. That was the first time it happened for me. It was really special for me, it showed everyone on the staff knew I was coming and all made a point to meet me and my family. We went on a facility tour which is a beautiful facility and I got to meet with their strength coach. Me and him clicked really quickly and I understand I’ll be working a lot with him. I loved their staff and they all seemed to really like me and my family. We had a good time hanging with the staff to get to know everyone. Just getting to be around Caoch Freeze and Coach Montgomery along with Coach Austin and Coach Stone, their offensive staff is very impressive to me how intelligent and experienced that offensive staff room is in working with the quarterbacks. My biggest thing is development of quarterback and I see myself getting to my best at Auburn."

Does White's commitment this Friday signal a new era of quarterback play at Auburn?
