Sunday recruiting update
Post No. 1,021
We're on the hunt for recruits this morning in metropolitan Auburn, Ala. The picture above is of Aubrey Phillips. See below for information about the coveted offensive tackle.
- UPDATE @ 11:30 a.m.: WR/TE Tracy Moore of Tulsa, Okla., was an unannounced visitor this weekend. He is an Oklahoma State commitment. He seemed enthusiastic about Auburn and the idea of playing in the SEC. Rivals.com has him as a 3-star guy.
- Saw DT Corey Gaines, who said this weekend really scrambled his plans. He came into the visit with Ole Miss atop his list. Now Gaines said he's confused. He plans to make a decision on Tuesday.
- Saw TB David Oku. He is planning to make a decision after Signing Day. He's shooting for the 17th. He said his commitment to Tennessee is iffy at this point. Oku was charmed by all the attention he received at the basketball game yesterday. It's down to Tennessee, Auburn and Syracuse.
- Saw OL Johnnie Farms. He didn't want to talk much. He said the trip to Auburn "was good". Farms will be making a decision on Signing Day between Auburn and North Carolina.
- Saw S Daren Bates earlier. He's happy to be with Auburn. He picked up an offer late last week, accepted it immediately.
- Saw OT Aubrey Phillips. This was a peculiar one. He said he's still committed to Tennessee, but he plans to change his commitment on Signing Day. He didn't want to discuss things beyond that. Phillips made the trip with Bates. They both play for Olive Branch High near Memphis.
- Saw DB Mike Eargle. He didn't get an offer from Auburn this weekend. I guess the Tigers are on a wait-and-see approach there. Eargle is from a Pennsylvania junior college. He has an offer in hand from Rutgers. He's also talking with Pitt.
- I missed: DB Taikwon Paige, QB Clint Moseley, LB Greg King.
