Cameron Newton commits


Hey everyone. The recruiting czars -- AuburnUndercover.com, AuburnSports.com and Inside The Auburn Tigers -- are reporting that quarterback Cameron Newton has committed to play with the Tigers beginning next week.

He is, according to Rivals.com, the nation's No. 1 junior-college prospect.

Newton chose Auburn over Mississippi State and Oklahoma.

He signed with Florida in 2007 out of an Atlanta high school. He was arrested in November 2008 for grand theft and larceny for allegedly stealing a student's laptop computer. Urban Meyer suspended Newton and the quarterback soon landed at Blinn (Texas) College, which recently won the junior college national championship.

In a telling demonstration of what former Florida staffers thought of him, head coaches Dan Mullen (Mississippi State) and Charlie Strong (Louisville) have pursued him during the past few months. Both coaches were UF assistants during Newton's days in Gainesville.

The Florida State Attorney's Office recently dropped the charges after Newton successfully completed a pre-trial intervention program.

Newton stands 6-foot-6 and weighs 235 pounds. He was an option quarterback in high school and is considered an advanced runner. He threw for 2,800 yards at Blinn last season, though observers said his mechanics will need significant refinement.

Staying another year could really help Ziemba in the draft. Of course there's always the risk of injury. I don't envy him making the choice.

Ziemba should stay... and I think he knows he should stay.

4:44 PM

Jay, will Isom play tomorrow?

By the way folks, a commit from people like Newton, Dyer, or Reed means more than just what they end up doing on the field. They raise eyebrows. It has to catch the attention of other high profile recruits.

Ziemba could likely be a second or third round pick in the draft, but he would definitely raise his stock if he hung around another season. I don't know how much better we will be, but I am certain we will be better next season.

Thanks Dusty. I hope what his dad says is true.

You do realize that LZ went 7 or 8 straight games in the middle of the season this year without a penalty of any kind (false start, holding or otherwise)??

4:50 PM  
Blogger Dadof3Girls said...

Good question Kathy. His past does give a little pause, but if he's a baller who cares? (Just kidding) We are the Auburn family and all and we do only recruit a certain type of kid.

I didn't think Z had that many penalties this year. I would hate to lose him.

4:52 PM

I don't recall 7-8 games for LZ, maybe 1-2. If so, I'm man enough to say, " I'm wrong, Sorry LZ".

4:52 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

If Ziemba looks like second or third round, he should go. Linemen tend to have short careers.

4:52 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

Mullen was recruiting him, and I figure he knew the whole story regarding the laptop. Kids do stupid stuff. Most of them learn from it. I think he realizes he was given a great opportunity, and I think Chizik will keep him on a short leash.

4:55 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

If CN hadn't screwed up, he'd probably be Tebow's successor. Hopefully losing that taught him a lesson.

He gets a second chance and doesn't have enormous shoes to fill.

4:55 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

I don't think Ziemba should go. I have seen players projected as third rounders that end up undrafted.

4:55 PM  
Blogger Dadof3Girls said...

Good point Kathy, Mullen did know the inside story and still went after him. Must have felt pretty good with the situation.

4:56 PM

I think I read that Ziemba could possibly be an early round draftee.

So what will Gus do with a QB that can run? Cam averaged 6.1 a carry and had 16 rushing TDs. Admittedly, it was against JCs, but that's still impressive.

5:00 PM

I didn't know Charlie Strong was also pursuing Newton.

That was a great job by the Stanford QB to get rid of the ball, but what an ugly play.

Can anyone remember Auburn ever having a recruiting class like this? I know that the 2006 and 2007 classes were very good, but I don't think they were this good.

OU is going to win this game.

5:04 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

Mizou trying to make a game of it. Navy flubbed a 4th and short inside the 5. Mizzou took it the length of the field and got sacked on 3rd and goal. They'll likely try a field goal to start the 4th qtr.

"Newton stands 6-foot-6 and weighs 235 pounds."

Let's hope Lattimore takes notice. From Rivals:

Yea, I wouldn't count Rollison out. He has talent. He might not be the starter next season, but it will be very interesting to see who is the number 2. I am betting that our second string QB will get more playing time in 2010. I think the coaches will have a bit more faith in them.

5:40 PM  
Blogger scottie durden said...

sorry, that was my delete. i double-posted. internet at my in-laws is not so good.

5:40 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

Let's see, the choices for QB are 2 redshirt freshmen, a perennial backup, a wideout, Trotter or Cam.

Trotter and Caudle couldn't beat out Todd. The freshmen have no experience. The wideout will remain a wideout. I think it's Cam's to lose. He obviously does too or he wouldn't have signed.

5:41 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Anyone know what channel the Insight Bowl is on?

5:43 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Nova, we didn't have anyone that was even close to Todd.

5:44 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

Rollison and Mosely will still have 2 years when Newton leaves. I hope they will gain experience while waiting.

I'm all for them competing for the job now. It's good for all. I just think there is a very likely outcome to that competition.

Time Warner doesn't have that NFL Network!!! Argh!!! I was afraid of that.

Jet, I do believe you are correct about not setting a JUCO. I am sure Malzahn wouldn't guarantee him the job, but I bet he told him the thought he would be the likely starter.

Newton only has two years left, so I am pretty sure he came to Auburn because he felt he had a very good chance of being the starter.

To me, this pretty much seals Neil Caudle, Kodi Burns, and Trotter's fate. I can't see them competing with Newton, Moseley, and Rollison.

5:53 PM

5:54 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Okay, we are done with QB recruiting. What position is the most critical now? DB? DT? OL? Another RB would be great, but I don't consider it critical.

5:56 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Air Force and Navy are both basically running the Paul Johnson option offense. I have seen it referred to as the fly, jet, or wingbone. Some think it is the next big thing in offenses. After today, it is hard to argue.

5:59 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

Steve, I would like to see us get Eric Mack! Also Lattimore! Both from SC.

6:00 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

I agree with Jet too. You sign someone with only 2 years because you need immediate help. The gap in talent and experience in this case is huge.

How is Gus at coaching passing mechanics?

6:00 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

Steve, IMO... DT.

I'd like to sign 2 big uglies for the middle of the DL...1 more edge rusher, another mail toter, and an OL.
I think that would get us square.

6:01 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

DT, DT, and DT is what else we need.

Also some DB's, but I'd love some more DT's. You can never have enough.

Never.

6:04 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

D Miller, I would like a DT if he is a real playmaker. I think what we have now are solid players, but they aren't Marks or Sims. We could really use someone that forced double teams.

Because of Nosa Eguae, I am not too concerned about DE. From what I read, Eguae is going to be a playmaker.

Eric Mack would be wonderful and I am getting a good feeling about him.

6:05 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Should we get Lattimore or Seastrunk, I may soil myself.

6:07 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

I'm happy that we got Newton and all, but to be honest, I just look at him as one more guy competing for the starting job next spring.

If Rollison makes it back by Spring, there's five guys as far as I'm concerned. Not just one.

Newton's gonna have to prove himself. Juco QB's worry me.

Just sayin'.

6:17 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

I am a big believer that QBs need experience, which is why I think Newton is the clear favorite. Kodi has a lot of experience and Caudle has some, but they have never looked like a solid choice.

Rollison and Moseley seem like the two with the best shot of competing with Newton, but I still think there is a better than 50% chance that Newton is the guy.

6:21 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

I can't help it. Every time I see Kiffikin on TV I go, "This guy is an SEC head coach? Really? Really?"

Oregon St who almost went to the Rose Bowl got demolished by BYU, which is a good team so its not sooo embarrassing BUT, Arizona who was also was in the running for the Rose Bowl got HUMILIATED by Nebraska, and Stanford lost to a struggling Sooners team.

I'm not going against SFC's QB picks again.

Last summer he said a healthy Chris Todd would get the #1 job in the fall, and I scoffed mightily. IIRC, so did almost every other HOTTIE.

No scoffing for me this time. I think Newton may now have the inside track. As I heard another AU fan say about Todd back in '08: you don't sign a JUCO QB to ride the bench.

8:18 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

FF, it isn't nearly as clear cut this season. While Newton is the leader in my book, Rollison or Moseley could get in there.

Last season I was very bummed be cause I didn't feel we had a legitimate candidate at QB until Todd healed, but this season we have 3 and possibly 4, which is an amazing turn around.

Ok, Cam is one of us now. I will pull for him as a player. He still has to win the job, and I'm not counting out Caudle yet.

8:26 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

API, the more I think about Caudle, the more I am convinced he won't be the guy. He has been turned down by at least 3 coordinators and only has one year remaining.

I have considered Moseley the possible surprise starter for a while and recent comments seem to give Trotter more potential than I thought he had. I can't really discount Rollison because of his hype and because Eddie is so high on him. Eddie isn't your typical couch potatoe.

8:31 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

I still think Rollison's major stumbling blocks to success at AU maybe sold off the shelves at J&M.

No inside info, just remember that most schools backed off of him because he seemed such a longshot to qualify.

The pursuit and subsequent signing of Newton leads me to believe that the AU coaches may share my concerns.

Alright, time to button up the house. Presumably, you're all safe tonight since you're doing the same thing I'm doing. Catch you during the game tomorrow.

Aren't y'all staying up to ring in the new year? Surely you can't go to sleep before the calendar turns over?

I feel bad for Crompton. That would have sucked to get drilled and break your collar bone on your last play in college. I'm glad he got up.

I'll ask LZ about next year as soon as the bowl game is over. The last I heard, he is truly a longshot to go pro. He definitely wants to play in the league, his parents think he can make it. With that said, his parents DO NOT think he's ready and are heavily pushing for him to return. They've said it is all up to Lee in the end, and that he will indeed ask for the experts to project him, but I full expect him back as LT next season. As a side note, I'm pretty sure there's no better "inside" info on LZ than what I have...I'd rest easy hotties--unless a team pretty much guarantees him a Day 1 draft position, he'll be back for sure.

Kathy,
Have you enjoyed your day of non-stop football? I have gotten to watch a lot, but not one complete game! Had to do mundane things like grocery shopping and to my sister's for dinner.

I'll be watching one complete game tomorrow for sure!

Dang do you think he is wearing enough wristbands?

Happy New Year to all.

Hey gang, I've made it to my hotel finally after grabbing some dinner...just in time to ring in the New Year and pop a crappy $5 bottle of Andre.

Tomorrow morning, Outback Bowl.

THT, I doubt my crew will be there in time for the meet N greet but we'll be there at some point.

Yes, Cincy, much to my daughter's chagrin, I have enjoyed my football marathon! We are now playing Mario. More football in the a.m. Hope there are other Hotties on the computer tomorrow during the game.

Just got in from the Disney parks. It is 2:00am here. That Walt can sure throw up some fireworks. Best fireworks show i have ever seen, and I have seen A LOT of them. That magic Kingdom was PACKED. They closed the gates at 9:30am this morning. We got there at 8:00am sharp. What a day. Daughter headed to the game friday with friends. I have a meeitng with a client right after the game so i can not go. i will be online to discuss other recruits if anyone is interested.

THT, I hear my Bob Jones High School Marching Band won the parade competition today. I hate you missed it! There's video if you would like to see the highlights.

Here's also a short video of tonight's pep rally:
