Recruits by position

Here's a look at Auburn's recruiting trends. Where did they feel like they needed help?

OFFENSE (15)
  • Wideout: 4 (Benton, Blake, James, Stallworth)
  • Tailback: 3 (Aycock, Jacobs, McCalebb)
  • Athlete: 3 (Cooper, Gulley, Washington)
  • Quarterback: 2 (Moseley, Rollison)
  • Line: 2 (Harris, Sullen)
  • Tight end: 1 (Lutzenkirchen)


DEFENSE (13)
  • Line: 6 (Coleman, Eguae, Fairley, Ford, Jackson, Travis)
  • Secondary: 4 (Bates, Lanier, Paige, Taylor)
  • Linebacker: 3 (Evans, Freeman, Gaston)


**Of note: I think Washington will be a defensive back.

all looks good except for the O line

Jay G, thanks for all the great updates today. I'm really excited with this class and these coaches.

3:23 PM  
Blogger ron mexico said...

and rollison qualifing would be a huge boost to this class

We should have offered scholarships to a couple of punters.

Not to worry Mike. When Monica walks on, JGT will be by her side. Did ya know he can kick a ball 50 yds?

3:25 PM  
Blogger The SeanZ said...

Jay G, any reason why Dee Ford was left out of the linebackers?

3:25 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Another deep snapper could have provided more prestige, I think.

Doc...double up on Mikhail's dose of colon blow please. It's obviously not working yet.

Thanks JayG...for both your hard work and providing this place to chat.

the offensive line does look a bit sparse.

3:25 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

Jay G, listening to press conference. What did Phillip ask and Chizik say to stay tuned?

3:25 PM  
Blogger ron mexico said...

Rumor has it, that durst is back with the team. I personally thought he tried to go pro early and changed his mind.

3:26 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Fixed the Ford omission.

Thanks.

Finebaum just said Les Miles ran off Benton so he could get Randle.

3:26 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

PMarsh asked about any "additional signees."

Jay G., I have been told by folks in Tallassee that Washington was recruited to Auburn to play DB.

3:27 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Benton and Randle didn't want to play at the same school. They're the same kind of player and were promised the same spot at LSU.

3:27 PM  
Blogger hehateme said...

Great job, JGT!

3:27 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Sensi ... I'm pretty sure Washington will be a cornerback, but Auburn is listing him as an offensive athlete for now.

3:28 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Thanks for all your support!

3:28 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Yeah, he fits the mold of the Auburn DB - not a ton of size, but good closing speed.

3:28 PM  
Blogger Bear82 said...

Jay - IMO you should take the rest of the week off. As the physically largest HOTTIE, and also the one in charge of security, (ask Monica) I declare this issue to occur. Anyone second? (its not like we want to be in the dark, but goodness, you work 70 hours/week, 9 days a week) I don't see how you do it.

3:29 PM

Thanks, once again, Jay G, for all of your hard work!

Folks, don't listen to PF. Don't contribute to his ratings. Let all those Bama rednecks do that. PF is such a joke and slandering these kids really galls me.

minus the whole getting drafted by the patriots thing

I'm really impressed with Chizik. He talks a good game. No nonsense.

are we thinking of redshirting our 2 new QBs? Just wondering if anyone had heard anything heading into spring. Id it Kodi's job to lose?

F-baum is the bane of sports radio. First time I listened to him was by accident passing through Birmingham and I just sat there thinking who does this guy think he is?

3:31 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I'm giving a talk tomorrow -- couldn't make this up -- about how to cultivate online communities.

I play a role in creating ONE happy community and now people believe HABOTN-like hotness can be replicated.

3:32 PM  
Blogger michael said...

I am guessing there will be a qb competition. New coaches like to do that sort of thing.

3:32 PM  
Blogger ron mexico said...

Malzahn really wanted Burns out of high school, so it's definitely his to lose.

3:32 PM  
Blogger The SeanZ said...

I would actually rather listen to Skip Bayless fill-ins than Paul Finebaum. I would rather listen to Tony Kornheiser solo broadcasts of MNF than PF.

3:33 PM  
Blogger Andrew said...

The Finebaum quote was that Les Miles told Benton "get out".

I'm sure that's just how it went down.

3:33 PM  
Blogger michael said...

One "happy" community? Do you not realize how much we hate each other?

But seriously, if you are giving the talk in Huntsville and need a guest speaker, then I'll be there. Unless it is during working hours.

3:33 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I gotta believe Moseley is a sure-fire redshirt. I'm 95% sure Rollison is either in prep school or redshirting next fall.

Barrett Trotter's career hasn't even started yet ... and you still have Burns, a surgically repaired Todd and Neil Caudle.

3:33 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

I don't know about LSU/Benton, but his coach was upset he didn't sign with LSU.

3:35 PM

surgically repaired... like Robocop!!?

3:35 PM  
Blogger Andrew said...

Kornheiser solo broadcasts..ouch!!

How do you guys avoid listening to this garbage? I've tried to before, but I always feel like I have to listen to be able to defend Auburn against whatever the flame of the day is.

3:35 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I asked Chizik about Benton's immediate past. I liked his answer to that one.

I'll say this knowing I could be completely wrong: Benton should be viewed with some skepticism.

From an analyst perspective, I'm more impressed with Emory Blake.

3:35 PM

I hope Demons plays in the slot or something personally.


Unless frenchy is ready and is harry Adams alive?

I really hate it for Coach Bradshaw. I'm sure this is a disappointing day for him.

3:36 PM

Jay G Tate - leaving Mont. Adver. and starting a new job as a consultant for college footballs fans, creating blogging sites. Feb. 8th- Austin, TX Feb. 12th - Los Angeles, CA Feb. 19th - South Bend, IN. Tickets: $250.00 per session.

Sound good? I can create the promotional materials, free of charge, as long as I tag along on the trips.

3:37 PM  
Blogger The SeanZ said...

Andrew, that's what Finebaum and his sponsors want you to do. To really defend or defeat the beast, you ignore it's very existence.

3:37 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I saw PPL earlier.

He's not 100% yet. It'll be summer.

3:37 PM  
Blogger michael said...

ahhh yes, Harry Adams... our last sure thing instant help on offense recruit. Why would bring him up today?

3:38 PM

I heard the tight end commitment (don't ask me to spell his name) on JOX this afternoon.

I was very impressed with him.

Kathy, BBradshaw lost some serious commi$$ions on the Benton non-signature. Let's pass the hat for him, shall we???

3:39 PM  
Blogger j-z said...

Can I be in charge of the backstage passes?

3:39 PM  
Blogger michael said...

how do they calculate ratings on radio? Do people have Nielsen boxes like for TV? Or do they just do surveys?

Because you can listen to poopbaum and still not be adding to his ratings as long as you either lie to survey takers or don't get a Nielsen box or whateva.

3:39 PM  
Blogger ron mexico said...

Did anyone see r. randle's press conference when coach bradshaw kept saying he was qualified in the 9th grade. That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard in my life.

3:40 PM

True..I just need to quit for good and act like that horrid studio in bammerham doesn't exist..When Al Del Greco is the best thing you've got going, you are really really struggling!

Jay G,
Did you ever read the Inc article I emailed you about?

3:40 PM

J-Z i saw on the other thread where you threatened to give Nick Saban crabs. Care to explain?

3:42 PM  
Blogger depressedAUfan said...

Bingo, Ron Mexico. The last two years have been brutal for O-line recruiting. I do think these coaches tried to stop the bleeding, but losing out on Farms and Phillips really hurts. Two O-lineman in two years? Sheesh.

3:42 PM  
Blogger Andrew said...

It is good for laughs every now and then. Like this very second as they praise and praise again dry k. for staying in alabama and being such a swell dad.

Ron Mexico is clearly interested in all STD passing stories.

We have our own Dr. HABOTN - ask for a prescription when he returns.

3:46 PM

depressed,

Phillips and Jermaine Johnson really hurt the most. Farms is a guard and we have those. I think we only have 2 legitimate OT's on the team in Ziemba and McCain, possibly cooper

3:47 PM

Well, Rivals has now "elevated" the Bammer class to Number 1.

3:47 PM  
Blogger hehateme said...

Don't care about the Bama class.... if my memory is correct, a group had them ranked #1 during this past season, and they found doo doo in a bottle for their last 2 games.

3:50 PM  
Blogger Bear82 said...

UTA # 1? geez, maybe Saban is using some of his $333,333 / month salary to pay for recru.... oops, i forgot, that is a taboo phrase to utter on a day like this.... sorry, my head is back in the sand.

3:50 PM  
Blogger depressedAUfan said...

Ron Mexico, you hit the nail on the head. The lineman we have are almost all interior guys. For all of the complaints on Ziemba last year, there really were no better options avaliable. We are one injury away from some hard times at the tackle position. I would like to see at least four lineman signed every year, because some will be lost to injuries or grades, and some will just never pan out.

3:57 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Chizik admitted he pays recruits....with love!

3:57 PM  
Blogger ron mexico said...

Ziemba will be fine next year. He is too big with quick feet not to bounce back. People blamed Ziemba but everybody sucked... he was just playing the toughest position on the line so he sucked a little more.

Maybe Auburn recruits should pull out something from the hay day at Auburn.

Like a bottle of bourbon in honor of Pat Dye.

It's been a long day of recruiting. I'm going to grab some supper now. War Eagle!!! Today, like every day, is a great day to be an Auburn Tiger!

Or put on a mesh truck stop hat that says "keep it down home cuz".

That'd mean more to me than bahr relics.

4:16 PM  
Blogger Comm'r of Flesh Wounds said...

I've been worried about the OL too, and was really disappointed Phillips didn't sign.

What about Cooper and Coulahan on the roster as OTs?

And if they don't work out, don't forget about this beast:

72 Andrew Parmer OL Fr-Fr 5-10 254

4:18 PM  
Blogger depressedAUfan said...

Comm'r, from what I have seen of Coulahan in practice, no way he can block speed rushers on the end. Ron Mexico said Cooper possibly could play tackle. AU needs to sign as many tackles as possible next year. I hope the new O-line coach is both a good coach and good recruiter. He really has his work cut out for him.

4:33 PM  
Blogger ron mexico said...

Ole miss signed 37 people... really? Does someone need to read the rules to houston nutt?

4:37 PM  
Blogger ron mexico said...

I think at this point Ryan Pugh has to stay out there at RT. Put Berry at center. Isom and Eddins at guard.

I mean give McCain a shot, but he couldn't beat out pugh (or a hurt Jason Boseley) last year
