The recruiting weekend starts NOW

Hey everyone. Thanks for making Thursday a big day for HABOTN traffic. Our servers were sizzlin' all day, which makes everyone happy. You make great comments. I enjoy great comments.

It's a match made in heaven.

Auburn has several high-profile prospects headed for the Plains this weekend. Let's take a gander at the list. I'm putting them in order of how much they intrigue me:

  • QB Tyrik Rollison (Sulphur Springs, Texas)
  • DT Jamar Travis (E. Brewton)
  • LB DeDe Lattimore (Athens, Ga.)
  • LB Greg King (Memphis, Tenn.)
  • DL Myles Wade (Eugene, Ore., by way of Arizona junior college)
  • WR Travante Stallworth (Leesville, La.) **AUBURN COMMIT**
  • LB Deontae Skinner (Macon, Miss.)
  • DB Izauea Lanier (Gordo) **AUBURN COMMIT**
  • LB Joel Kight (suburban Atlanta)
  • OL Hunter Stout (Tampa, Fla.)
  • QB Robert Cooper (Daphne)


NUGGETS D'OR (couldn't think of anything clever here)

  • Tyrik Rollison told AuburnSports.com that his recruitment is down to Auburn and Kansas State. How's that for accelerated attention? Auburn wasn't recruiting him on Dec. 1. If you can check out the Rivals.com film on him, do it. His footwork leaves a lot to be desired, but it's clear he knows how to make plays.

  • Greg King is a new name to me. He's a speedy outside linebacker from Memphis who met with Tennessee last weekend. Looks like a useful weak-side guy to me.

  • I bet Jamar Travis ends up at Auburn. He's a Southern Miss commitment, but he told AuburnUndercover.com that he's basically waiting on an offer from the Tigers. Then everything will change. What I hear about him -- smaller than ideal but plays with unusual fervor -- is exactly what we heard about Sen'Derrick Marks back in the day.


TO PLACATE MYSELF

Video that has nothing to do with recruiting, but makes me laugh. May make you laugh as well if you're not already familiar. They definitely got the 1980s Rod Stewart vibe with this one.

I really was looking over the recruiting board last night and I am not sure why folks think we can't have a solid recruiting class. Here is how I could see defensive side going down.

I think DT we should be good, and it was a big need for us, with 4* Myles Wade, 4* Jamar Travis (He is just waiting on a AU offer, 3* Nick Fairley and I think we have a chance at picking up 4* Corey Gaines after this weekend.

LB seems pretty good as well no superstars besides 5* The Bull. I think 3* Lattimore would be a good one, 3* Greg King looks good and when AU paid him some attention he canceled his Miami trip to visit AU, Johnathan Evans and Harris Gaston will be good as well. Then rounding it out this new kid Bamfo (LB, TX) looks pretty good and is eerily similar to Tray Blackmon

On the ends, looks like 3* Dee Ford will be great, once he bulks up. 4* Nosa Eguae I think he signs as well. That could be it but with the guys we have there now should not be an issue. Especially with our major recruit A. Coleman coming back for his Sr. Season.

Then in the secondary 4* DB Reggie Taylor looks like he will be a difference make. I think next weekend we get 4* DB Taikwon Paige when he is officially offered. Other than those 2 not sure who else.

Over all Defense seems like it will be solid.

Any one else care to chime in or perhaps disect our potential offensive class?

9:05 AM

Eddie I will be at the AU/Tenn game! Look for the Big Cat in the HABOTN shirt.

DoWhat- Good assessment of our potential. Personally I would like to see a few more bigger LBs like D.T Shackleford and Tana Patrick. Both are probably long shots but I can wish.

Taikwon Paige would be great at corner and if we can get Wade and Travis at DT then we increase our depth. I'm was suprised that xCTT didnt offer Travis earlier. He was always high on AU.

The lack of OL scare me a bit especially with Ramsey gone for good. WRs will be ok if we can coach them up a bit. Most seemed to make some ok progress last year as the season progressed.

She played alright. She played like a beast. She had one trip down the floor on D and almost had back to back blocks...the first was clean, but she put a little something extra into the 2nd and got the whistle.

Would you rather fight her or Sen'Derrick Marks?

Both of them are exceedingly nice people. I don't think they'd fight anyone.

Artile on Kight in the Atlanta paper this morning. He wants to play near home (Atlanta), but not at home. He dropped Georgia Tech from consideration when he got an offer from us. Competition is now Ole Miss. I wouldn't be surprised if he commits.

9:16 AM  
Blogger astatguy said...

Kight's an interesting case. OM and GT want him at running back, but he wants to play defense. That's unusual. He's 5'9" and 199. AJC says he a DB, but the recruiting services say he's a linebacker. Looks like a db body to me. He was Geaorgia's largest high school classification defensive player of the year as a junior. I think he only has two stars may be because his high school made him play running back as a senior, and he's a defender.

I am going to stay committed to Auburn, but I don't know for sure what I am going to do."

Wow, I can't believe there is a coach that would allow a game like that to happen. I know we had a football game against one of the Kansas schools in the 80s. The game was decided by halftime. Coach Dye agreed with the opposing coach to not stop the clock in the second half. I always admired Dye for that.

Hate to say it, but look at what happened the other night in the UConn/Syr women's game.

They won by 50 something and the HC at UConn had words with a Syr player.

It is about some lawmakers voting not to honor Florida as a swipe at the BCS system. The last paragraph is awesome:

"A spokesman for Rep. Bobby Bright, an Alabama Democrat and Auburn University graduate, said his reasons for not supporting the measure were simpler: He simply couldn't bring himself to support a school that is such a bitter rival of his state's universities."

I used to officiate HS football, and I will tell you that:

a. I ran the clock even when the coaches wouldn't agree with it.

b. I told an offense while they were in their huddle that if they ran for more than 5 yards on a play, it was coming back. And I flagged 'em when they did. No need for a team to score more than 70 in high school ball.

And I'd do it again.

If we get Oku, Brown and Randle to visit on the same weekend , that seems to be quite a recruiting coup in itself.

Luv, In Monica's favorite show ... "Big Love," which is about a polygamous family. The wives are refer to each other as "Sister Wives."

I have started referring to myself as a "Brother Husband" since I have been accused of having multiple personalities.

Also, because Omnica has such power over many of the men here, we could be identified as her HABOTN "brother husbands."

Forgive the inside jokey jokemaker of it.

Michael - I had your back on that one! Just let the record reflect that please and thank you.

Luv - it's a Facebook reference - I commented how much I love the show Big Love and a whole multiple wives/husbands thing ensued.

When you're married to a man with many wives, the other wives are called your "sister wives".

Is anyone wondering why we're not recruiting more OL? I know we dropped Moore and there are one or two here and there, but OL is a MAJOR issue for Auburn.

In fact, I would much rather see us signing a bunch of top quality OL than 4 star/5 star RB's and WR's. If you ain't got the blocking, you don't have squat!

I am a bit concerned with the number of linemen we are recruiting, although I don't tend to distinguish offensive linemen from defensive linemen. We have been known to turn DLs into OLs.

Ha. Very funny! It's just hard for me to get too excited about this recruiting class without some solid OL. I think it's one of the most underperforming areas of Auburn's team in the last decade, barring some standout players who anchored the unit.

Yeah, I agree things will be okay and that we probably will turn some DL's into OL's. Just general concern and hoping we start getting tougher up front.

I will be happy if we can just get some offensive linemen that can understand one simple concept. Ball moves, you moves. Ball don't move, you don't move. Lets get guys that can handle that concept and work from there.

The continuity on the staff that is being discussed now is a concern I have. If you want me to define continuity, take a look at our offensive staff this last season. That is what that staff didn't have.

It isn't enough to get good coaches. If they can't work well together, it doesn't matter.

Blogger ZteveFC (Live to Punt) said...

AUnMobilz, Auburn's problems in the coaching community really began with Terry Bowden and how he left. Jetgate added to the problems. The way Muschamp left added to it. The way Tuberville left also added to it. Apparently what happened with Willis was also another indicator.

I had hoped our issues with coaches would go away when Housel was replaced. It doesn't seem like that is the case.

Among the coaching community, Tuberville is viewed as a top notch coach that was mistreated by Auburn.

What went on with Muschamp was even more ridiculous. If he asked for ticket to the bowl game, there should have been no issue with it. When you pay a guy hundreds of thousands a year, you make sure minor things like that don't get in the way.

I really don't know enough about how the athletic department functions to know the root cause of these issues, but there is an issue that needs to be addressed.

This isn't to say that Chizik and company won't be successful. It is about whether Auburn is view as a final destination for a coach or a jumping off point.

A good example of this was Coach Fraud at Alabama and his move to Texas A&M, which was definitely a lateral move at best. Bama has had the problem with this reputation ever since Bear Bryant left. It is part of why Stallings left.

I am hoping to get back to the reputation we had with Shug through Dye. Whether they would be around next season was not a constant topic. Even with Barfield, he was given a decent shot.

Blogger Jet N. Fuego said...

My take ...

This bad rep business may be true, may not.

I think we hired the No. 2 guy on our list. The rest was just show.

A former player turned us down to be an assistant coach? We hired a coach in that guy's slot who has been with successful programs -- BYU and Boise State.

An assistant coach has left us to go to our archrival? I don't think he can sway many players, and the signals to last season's offensive plays are, well, no longer being used.

I don't see where we've been that hurt badly -- so the media got wound up a while, but January still has a week left in it and it's over.

Face it, the first two words you think of when you think of Charles Barkley ain't "Turner Gill."
