The List of New Football Players

WEDNESDAY MORNING
Post No. 1,033

Hey everyone. It's National Signing Day. You know what that means? It's ON.

THE LATEST
(11:30) DE Terrance Coleman, WR LaVoyd James and DL Nick Fairley -- all of Williamson High fame -- have signed with Auburn. That bumps the Tigers' 2009 class to 28 players.


OTHER THINGS OF INTEREST
  • (11:18 a.m.) DT Jamar Travis of W.S. Neal High in (East) Brewton has signed with Auburn.

  • (10:40 a.m.) LB Harris Gaston of Bessemer Academy has signed with Auburn. He'll emerge as an outside guy with power.

  • (10:25 a.m.) ATH Robert Cooper of Daphne High has signed with Auburn. He is expected to "gray shirt" this season and join the team in January.

  • (10:10 a.m.) TB Dontae Aycock and DB Taikwon Paige have signed with the Tigers.

  • (9:55 a.m.) DE/DT Nosa Eguae of suburban Ft. Worth, Texas, has signed. Read about him here: Truth sets Texas DE free - to sign with Auburn

  • (9:30 a.m.) WR Anthony Gulley of Brantley High has signed.

  • (9:25 a.m.) WR DeAngelo Benton of Bastrop, La. (also of Hargrave Military Academy) has signed with the Tigers. I consider that a completely crazy development. He's supposed to be a big-time wideout, but he hasn't played organized ball since November 2007. Either way, this is a significant NSD coup.

  • (9:15 a.m.) WR Emory Blake of Austin, Texas, has signed with Auburn. That is a major development because Blake was the most important "bubble" prospect on the Tigers' list.

    With Blake and now DeAngelo Benton signing on with Auburn today, it's clear that offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn and his offense has captured the imagination of offensive prospects.



  • Here is your up-to-the-minute list of signees:
    • LB Eltoro Freeman (already enrolled)
    • TB Onterio McCalebb (already enrolled)
    • TE Philip Lutzenkirchen
    • LB Donald "Dee" Ford
    • DB Daren Bates
    • OL Andre Harris
    • WR Travante Stallworth
    • QB Clint Moseley
    • DB Reggie Taylor
    • RB Brandon Jacobs
    • DB Izauea Lanier
    • LB Jonathan Evans
    • QB Tyrik Rollison
    • OL John Sullen
    • DT Josh Jackson (of Gainesville, Ga. -- new to the scene)
    • WR Emory Blake
    • DB Demond Washington
    • WR Anthony Gulley
    • WR DeAngelo Benton
    • DE/DT Nosa Eguae
    • DB Taikwon Paige
    • TB Dontae Aycock
    • ATH Robert Cooper
    • LB Harris Gaston
    • DT Jamar Travis
    • DE Terrance Coleman
    • WR LaVoyd James
    • DT Nick Fairley

A bammer called into Jay Barker-Evans this morning and said he was a redneck friend of Tana Patrick. Said Tana was wearing red and white today and was bammer all the way. Then, Mr Mullet caller said that SaBear told Tana that (SaBear) got EVERY recruit he wanted. The only reason anybody went anywhere else is if SaBear didn't want him.

Ronnie Daniels went from 1,000 yards and 10 TD's in 99 to 300 yards in 00.

The rise of Rudi Johnson caused problems for Daniels and it was really strange that he left after a bad 2000 season.

Benton was supposedly working on Randle wanting to be teammates again.
Do I think it happens? Not a chance. But, I didn't think we had a chance with Benton either.

I wonder if Benton accidentally faxed his LOI to the wrong place?

When I checked back, he dropped one. Maybe they got new film.

I read an article just yesterday where his coach at Bastrop was gloating about Benton resigning with LSU. At the time he said hands down Benton was the better wide receiver when compared to Randle. Wonder if he still feels the same!

Yea, I am moving kind of slow, but this class appears to be turning out much better than I hoped. My guess is we would end up ranked in the middle teens at best. I am pleasantly surprised.

Kathy, CTT delivered top 10 classes in 2006 and 2007. I am unsure what you are talking about.

Someone said the Bastrop coach was on JOX this morning and he said he couldn't use the words on the air when he heard from this guy (Benton). What a loser.

Kathy you have amazing skills at multi tasking and info gathering. I name you the QUEEN of HABOTN.

Steve, Tommy had gotten very complacent in his recruiting process the past couple of years. If these guys didn't camp at Auburn, he didn't recruit them. You've got to be proactive when you are fighting against the best in the SEC to get these guys. But it's all water under the bridge now. This is a new day!

I am amazed that Miles recruits as well as he does. There have been so many games were I thought they made bonehead moves. Sometimes they work out, sometime they don't. But if I were a recruit, I wouldn't be impressed with Miles.

Kathy, we have to agree to disagree. I am not sure why the focus on Tuberville anyways. Chizik is the guy now.

Aw thanks Monica. I can't hold a candle to you, but I graciously accept your compliment. You are definitely the QUEEN of the HABOTN. Now as for the Jester, there are A LOT in this group!

ESPN says Petey Smith #5 LB in nation. What a farse! At 6' 240lbs the kid likely won't be two deep on special teams.

THT & Hip-Hop,

Back Off.

The double click on the submit button was an accident. I wasn't attempting to get "noted".

War Eagle, this is a great class....

I've got my daughter watching ESPNU recruiting with me. I'm a proud mom! It is a good day!!!

AND THT,

Your status on The HABOTN does not qualify you to dish out unsolicited medical advise.

If Tubbs wasn't on the U pretending to be a professional recruiter we wouldn't refer to him at all SteveFC

Gonzo - I humbly apologize. WAR EAGLE back at you!!!

Tuberville was one of the top coaches in the nation and brought in top 10 recruiting classes. How is that pretending? That is kind of a bizarre statement.

jhag: the articles I read this morning say Benton is on track to qualify. I'll track them down right after I'm done with Dominos (I'm sending Coach Bradshaw 132 pizzas w/extra anchovies).

But THT was correct, smoking does cause cancer. I have a mother and a father who are on oxygen dying with emphysema, and I still have siblings that smoke. I guess we all pick our poison.

Now off the soap box and onto this great day. I'm really enjoying this signing day!

Tubbs used to be a great recruiter, I agree, ten years, yes, like all of us in our jobs after 10 years became relaxed

10:55 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Steve, the focus on Tub is because Tuberville is on ESPN talking recruiting, he is our most recent coach and it's not rare to compare a current year's class vs a previous year's class.

We know you love Tub, we do. You've shown it. We know you always find the positive in Tub's time at Auburn, and there were plenty of them. However as Jay G has stated, the recruiting game passed Tub by and he didn't adapt.

Those top 10 classes that he did have in 2006 & 2007 really didn't do much to help us avoid 5-7 this past year.

Who did we loose? Down to 29 from 30 on the count....
