Auburn adds another commitment ... sort of

TUESDAY MORNING
Post No. 1,029

Daphne High quarterback Robert Cooper has committed himself to the Tigers' program, but won't make the roster until January 2010 ... at the earliest. We know this because our friends at AuburnSports.com tell us it is so.

Cooper will be grayshirting. He will sign a Letter of Intent on Wednesday, but will not enroll as a full-time student until January. That will preclude him from participating in football activities this fall because those endeavors are limited to full-time undergrads or graduates engaged in post-baccalaureate studies. When he joins the team in January 2010, he'll have five years to play four.

Cooper can play a variety of positions. Time will tell.

Auburn's last successful grayshirt: LB Chris Evans.

Jay G, is there a time when kids can just try out to walk on the team, or do they have to have that lined up before the get to campus? i guess i mean, does Auburn ever have open try outs or anything like that?

9:34 AM  
Blogger ZteveFC (Live to Punt) said...

I wonder where they see Cooper playing. He is a dual threat QB, but seems a bit slow from what I have seen and read. He does have good size.

Blogger ZteveFC (Live to Punt) said...

PM has a list of players who were former Auburn commitments. He lists ten, and a lot of them look to be good recruits. Somehow I didn't realize how many we have lost.

Auburn holds open tryouts, yes.

They also invited selected players to walk on during the fall.

Jay G, what do you think the mark of success will be for Chizik's recruiting for this year. I mean if he gets one person to change he mind, is that a success. Just trying to get an idea of what the standard is. I realize that this will probably not be the norm for years to come, this seems to be more of a thing that he did to make a splash and to try to catch up.

9:58 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Also, for everyone interested, an invited walk-on reports at the begining of camp with all the scholarship playeres, whereas the "tryouts" occur closer to september, after fall camp has been underway for about 3-4 weeks if not longer.

What is with the chatter on rivals about Lutz? Did some whacko predict him to switch over to bammer or something? Surely there's nothing legit to that....... Right?

10:06 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Denny- I believe this group of coaches can recruit big time, and I really believe given time, they will pull in some big time players. As far as success this year, I believe it is measured by how we have been able to get into the picture of so many big time players in such a short time bolds well for the future. Tuberville was an area based recruiting strategy, whereas I believe that these coaches are going to go after the best players using any relationship means they are privy to.

Miller, I've seen absolutely nothing to that on the scout boards. Also over at PMarsh's site the headline is Lutz w/ "Happy to be an Auburn Tiger" and his contact at UAT was Lance Thompson, this just seems like wishful thinking.

AUNugget- All anyone has to do is go to the complex and let them know you want to walk on and they will direct you to whoever is in charge of it now. I don't know who would be in charge anymore, but that will get you sent in the right direction. You should also do it well before the fall if possible.

Blogger ZteveFC (Live to Punt) said...

As for how this staff has done recruiting wise, I think they have held their own. We lost a lot of talent, but they have also brought some talent in.

So far, the strategy of this staff has been similar to Tuberville's in that we focus on a wider are, but that could change next season. If this staff continues to raid the Texas/Oklahoma area and continues to recruit the traditional states Auburn has pursued in the southeast, it could bode very well for Auburn.

Undercover is apparently also listing Quan Fletcher (LB, Dr. Krop HS Miami) as an AU prospect. First I've heard of him, and he doesn't list AU as one of his schools on any of the major services. . .

10:46 AM  
Blogger Mark said...

I don't think we make much of a move this year (read: tomorrow on signing day). Honestly, in the year of a coaching change, if we are top 15 that is unbelievable. If we are top 15 after the kids arrive, that is even more impressive. Something tells me we will be top20-25 after admissions and then pick up several of these kids a year or two down the road after prep or juco.

10:53 AM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

I don't think Cooper is being brought in with any aspirations for the QB spot. I see him more in the mold of Will Herring (high school QB, brought in and made into a hybrid S/LB). Cooper will probably be a LB (if his speed is close to what is reported - 4.5/4.6)

10:57 AM  
Blogger ZteveFC (Live to Punt) said...

Probably the scariest thing about this recruiting season is the amount of talent we lost to Ole Miss. Ole Miss was very impressive this past season and should be just as good or better next season. The SEC West is going to be very interesting.

Jimmy Ranes son walked on, I know him and let me tell you he was terrible in high school. He did it for daddy.

Another big booster, from my hometown, Downs, his son walked on Watson Downs, same thing. Its a daddy make me proud moment.

I had a friend who walked on at Florida State. He quit right after tackling drills he was laid out by Derrick Brooks, my friend was like 5'11 165.

There are some for real walk ons, like the kid from Prattville, that should have played somewhere, but most are just living the dream to see if they can make it and see how much of a difference there is from local town football to the SEC. Im sure its a crazy experience. Guys you grown up watching and then getting laid out by them.

Quan Fletcher is an interesting recruit...the sites speak well of him, but he was between two of the top LB's in this years class...so he was either looked over, or looked better because of the talent around him...
The only big schools after him are Purdue and Tenn

Kevin Greene- I heard from the equipment manager at the time, that when he first walked on that he weighed like 150 lbs and then the second time he walked on, he came in at at like 230 lbs and all the weight gain was pure muscle. He was always rumored to be on roids, but back then, a lot of the team was rumored to be using roids.

Phred -

Richardson had developed a case of the flu during the tour and asked one of Holly's bandmates, Waylon Jennings, for his seat on the plane; Jennings agreed to give up the seat. When Holly learned that Jennings wasn't going to fly, he said, "Well, I hope your ol' bus freezes up." Jennings responded, "Well, I hope your ol' plane crashes." This exchange of words, though made in jest at the time, haunted Jennings for the rest of his life.

The reason KD does that is quite honorable. I don't know where the article is, but he does it to send a positive message to the kids of Woodlawn HS. It's a reminder that folks from that area if they work hard enough, they can do anything they put their mind to.

He got to talking about the anniversary of Bear Bryant's last game (must have been 2002 then) and said he grew up a Bama fan but couldn't afford out of state tuition. That's why he went to UT.

FSJ, thanks for confirming the worst kept secret in sports radio. LOL!

I missed that, but I have no doubt he would have said something like that. Truth is, PF knows that if he bangs on Auburn and cool whips Alabama, ratings soar.

I agree with Sensi about PF, which is why I will neve listen to another word out of PF's mouth, nor read anything he writes. The guy is just trying to make money by being a jerk. I bet he cries when he is by himself.

I think Finebaum is a very good writer, but his show is staged to some degree. By that I mean the regular callers (Bobby/Shane/IMan).... I work with a lady whose best girlfriend called in a few months ago. She caused a stir for jumping on Jay Barker about something. Finebaum's producer begged her for weeks to become a regular caller. They were going to give her a direct line so she wouldn't have to wait in line and so forth.

The Karlos Dansby calling into finebaum thing is awesome. He's my second favorite player of all-time.

My list is:

1. Takeo Spikes
2. Dansby
3. Carlos Rogers

Jet - well played.

On the Billy Joel front, for all fathers of daughters, there is no better song than Lullabye. Go ahead and try to contradict me, you can't do it.

Scenes from an Italian Restaurant confuses me...

It's like three songs in one...

Bottle of Red...Bottle of White..

Brenda & Eddie..

and finally back to the restaurant.

good afternoon, habotnistas. welcome to the new posters. I think i'm in line to get a $10.00 refund from comcast for the super bowl porno faux pas the other day. not sure why they're doing that, but okay by me.

I've lost count. I think I've seen Billy 8 times. He'll be in the ATL together with Elton and I've seen that show twice.

2:49 PM  
Blogger Jet D. Habotn-Bear said...

I could not believe the Today show's report on that this a.m. They showed with the blurred over screen what went on the air. The first instance was just the credits of a movie ... the second was an act that the blurred screen didn't hide too well.

Why? They almost should have shown it without cover ... there was little left to the imagination.

Did anyone here F'baum say there was a recruit that Auburn was targeting very heavily behind the scenes and was a big time prospect for Bama. They said if it happens it would shock the recruiting world.

2:51 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

gatiger,

Yep...this will be my fourth time to see him with Elton.

Georgia Dome in 94
Phillips in 2001 or 2002
Nashville in 2001 or 2002

I get the Nashville & Phillips Arena years mixed up.

That is a great show. You definately get your money's worth.

i always liked keith richard's quote about elton john: "anymore, he just sings songs about dead chicks."

2:53 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

And that is very funny considering it comes from Keith Richards who looks dead.

lol.

FSJ I was in the house with you in the Dome and Arena. It was 2001, by the way. Had great seats for the Arena show. I'll likely be missing this one though.

Keith Richards has actually been dead for years. It's the Disney Animatronics that everyone has been seeing. Not surprisingly, his guitar playing has improved since his death.
