Auburn's 2014 recruiting class is 21 prospects strong once more.

It briefly fell to 20 last week after the decommitment of junior college defensive tackle Dalvon Stuckey, but Markell Boston stepped in to fill the void today. The three-star safety from Newnan was offered by the Tigers earlier in the day and committed shortly after. The news was first reported by 247Sports.

Boston visited Auburn last week, as the Tigers were continuing to look for another safety to add to their 2014 haul. He now joins early enrollee Derrick Moncrief and Stephen Roberts out of Opelika, Ala., as Auburn seeks to replace a pair of departing seniors in Ryan Smith and Ryan White in the secondary.

Last year at East Coweta High School, Boston made 87 tackles and returned two interceptions for touchdowns. He had previously been committed to East Carolina before flipping to Auburn on Monday.

The only thing Boston's pledge didn't do was change Auburn's ranking among the major recruiting services. The Tigers' class remained at No. 7 (247Sports), No. 9 (Scout) and No. 10 (Rivals), respectively.
