In this interview with The Post, Kouandjio talks about his options. He said he is considering Iowa, Auburn, Alabama and New Mexico. Kouandjio's older brother Arie, a DeMatha graduate, currently plays football at Alabama.

Cyrus. Although it hurts me to root for a DeMatha graduate (God is Purple). I am just going to be brutally honest with ya, kid.

Go to Auburn. Win a National Championship. Get some pre-NFL diamonds (Championship Ring(s); SEC Champ/BCS). Go to the NFL. Become Legendary.

Auburn has all the pieces in place for you to be highly successful on virtually every level. The Academics are stellar. The environment is amazing. The facilities are A+. The competition will push you to be the best you can be. Auburn will continue to recruit this area over the coming years, and you will always be a part of a Larger Family.

Auburn baby! War D@mn Eagle! AU Family! We're All In!

You will start from day one, and you will begin your Epic journey on day two!

LOL at AU comments. Promising you National Championships and yet inferring that at AU you will start from day 1.

You're a very classy young man, Cyrus. You belong at a classy University with a Coach than can prepare you for the NFL and for Life. Auburn is surely going to be limited after the NCAA investigation for ethics violations(putting it nicely). You want to play for a National Championship AND playing with your brother would be great. We want you at Alabama. Come Roll with the Tide. National Championships and the NFL await you!

LOL. Come to Auburn and win a NC? Sorry, but that only happens once every 60 years. They aren't due again until 2070. Cam Newton's don't grow on trees. He is one and done, and so is AwBarn. They are back to their typical 9-3 while Bama has won a NC in 6 of the past 8 decades (with multiples in several). Keep dreaming Barns. Only 11 More NC's to catch the leader. Roll Tide Cyrus! Can't wait to watch you block for Richardson, Lacy, and Crowell!

Consider Maryland; you home town school needs you and you won't just be another 5 star recruit among a dozen other 5 stars. Good luck either way. Study hard, enjoy your college experience and make your family proud beyond what you do on the football field.
