Auburn just lost a major commitment from an elite defensive lineman recruit. Kayode Oladele, a four-star defensive end out of Miami, Fla., announced his commitment to Auburn in December 2017.

Just two months before the 2018 college football season, however, the Tigers will have to hit the field without him. According to Benjamin Wolk, Oladele will not enroll at Auburn.

Instead, he'll explore other options for this fall.

His decision should come soon.

Oladele commented on the news via his Twitter account.

The 6-foot-4, 235-pound defensive end chose the Tigers over Florida State, Miami, Ole Miss and Tennessee, among other programs.

A four-star prospect, Oladele was the No. 13 player at his position, via 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

The Tigers signed the No. 12 class, but losing Oladele hurts regardless.
