The recruiting weekend starts NOW
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.
