After months of speculation, four-star safety Eric Winters (Enterprise High School) from Enterprise, Alabama, has committed to Auburn.

Eric Winters is 6 foot 2 and weighs 200 pounds. According to 247Sports, he is the No. 5 safety, the No. 5 player in Alabama, and the No. 53 nationally ranked recruit in the class of 2025.

Before his commitment to the Tigers, he was pursued by other programs like Georgia, Miami, Florida, and Tennessee. He visited Miami on May 31st and Georgia on June 7th before taking his final visit with Auburn. His primary recruiters were co-defensive coordinator Charles Kelly and D.J. Durkin.

Winters is Auburn's fourth commit in eight days, bringing Auburn class from the No. 8 class to the No. 6 class in the 2025 recruiting cycle.

What Eric Winters Brings To Auburn

Winters has the frame to add 15 to 20 pounds. He projects as a nickel safety or hybrid linebacker who can play close to the line of scrimmage and make tackles while playing man coverage against bigger wide receivers and tight ends.

He also plays quarterback for Enterprise High School, which gives him an understanding of coverages, how to sit in zones as a defender, and when to attack the ball at the catch point. With the additions of Oklahoma and Texas, the SEC becomes even more offensively threatening, and this acquisition will help bolster the defense in preparation.
