Quick recruiting update

Hey everyone. Just ran across a story off SuperPrep.com that I think you'll find interesting ... provided you have a subscription to the Scout.com family of services.

If you don't, here's a basic review:

Two of Auburn's top targets -- DT Jeffrey Whitaker (pictured) and OL Shon Coleman -- visited Miami this weekend. One of Miami's committed players, a DT from Chicago named Jeffrey Brown, was asked to assess the uncommitted prospects who visited Miami this weekend.

Brown believes Auburn fans will be happy with Whitaker's final decision.

Brown believes Auburn fans will be unhappy with Coleman's final decision.

(I hate to leave you hanging like that, but that information is property of Scout.com.)

ALSO: A fullback out of Mobile by the name of Jay Prosch committed to Illinois this weekend, but told the Illinois Rivals.com site that an offer from Auburn could change all that. Looks like we have identified one of the Tigers' backup plans.

ANOTHER NOTE: Our friends at The Cats' Pause (Kentucky's Rivals.com site) report that Louisiana cornerback Patrick Swilling Jr. may be planning to visit Auburn after National Signing Day. I haven't heard his name before today. He's a two-star player with offers from LSU, Tennessee, Ole Miss and others. Sounds better than a backup player.

Coleman will sign with AU.

Every school that Coleman visits feels he will sign with them yet Auburn is the only school to have Coleman actually comment on.

6:24 PM

We shall see.

Again, this was the opinion of a kid who spent the weekend with Whitaker and Coleman. I spent a weekend with a chick named Missy Chisholm back in 1991 and said a lot of things I didn't mean.

Oh, wait. TMI.

G, maybe I keep missing your answer but I have asked a couple of times about your trip to SC on Tuesday. Are you going because you have a strong feeling that Latt is announcing for AU?

CH- jay G said he was going for the story. No inside info.

6:37 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

I was initially disappointed that the iPad had too little memory to be be the sole computer. But when I thought about it, it's designed to be an interface for cloud computing. You keep everything you aren't currently using on the web or server.

Someone who knows such things says Swilling doesn't have a firm offer from Auburn.

6:55 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

I'm hoping Swilling doesn't get that offer

6:56 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Some may not like the AE website, but there people are pretty up to date. I've been following it for a couple of months now and they have been spot on. They were the only ones saying that Mack was coming even after he said he was "100% committed and finished with recruiting".

6:56 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Yeah he doesn't have an offer yet because of his "backup plan" status. I'm with you Eddie I hope that offer doesn't come.

CH- rivals Jeffrey Lee never waivered on Mack to Auburn either. He has been spot on this year.

6:58 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

CH=B, I accidentally used one of his pictures on the blog. He asked me to give him credit, which was a reasonable request, but I instead chose to remove the picture completely.

He asked why I'd do that ... and I told him that I didn't want to follow his lead by ganking stuff straight off someone else's site. He claims to have never engaged in that kind of behavior. I know better.

6:58 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I have no opinion on the AE site or the people who post there. I've only been there once or twice ... and that was to laugh at Scott Reaves' claims that he generates million of hits per month.

I'm pretty sure Howard had his offer pulled.

Headline would read: Howard offer pulled?

Howard says he'll decide between AU, CU, & KY on NSD. Yep, I don't think it's AU.

7:15 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Maybe Howard will take a walk-on position.

7:16 PM  
Blogger CH=B said...

I firmly believe that Howard will stay/go depending on Latt. The coaches may have pulled his offer because they are really confident in landing Latt.

He'll choose between Clemson and UK, regardless of what Lattimore does (whether that is come to AU or come to AU)

WEG, exactly! I want them to want to play for Auburn so much that they'll play in whatever position the coaches ask them to just so they can play at Auburn.

I know McCready and Jay are friends but I can't stand him.

I just recently started reading some of the Fan blogs like AE and other rival sites like CockyTalk(SC) and others, just to see what they say during recruiting.

Most of it is pretty dull and seem like endless loops of misinformation, but as soon as as new article is posted they are on it with a link, even pay articles.

What I find most interesting, is reading them in retrospect. I Posted this earlier, but I read the last ten pages of the Eric Mack thread on CockyTalk.
It was a great read, dramatic,
I think you could cut and paste the last of the thread and put it in Harper's.

I just put up my 2nd post ever on the AE board to defend the honor of Jay G. But in posting this, I realize I am making 2 big confessions - that I have read another blog, and that I even read it before coming to the HABOTN. I'm so ashamed, but confession is good for the soul.

I have never followed recruiting very closely until this year, and thought that people who really kept up with it lead pitiful lives. What is happening to me?

8:23 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

Coosa... recruiting has a different feel to it this year.
I don't remember a year like this where we were on the edge of our seats for 4 and 5 stars and impact players... rather than trying to rummage up information on a little known 2 or 3 star and convincing ourselves that the coach may turn them into something.

btw...did anybody watch 60 min with those Green Berets with the beards.

Those guys are bad ass.

You know, dear children, that I turn to the Good Book in times like these.

"Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest." -- John 4:35 (King James Version).

Harvest time is nigh, brethren. May our reapers be strong and not faint. May our crops be bountiful. And let us smite our enemies with the forearm shiver of righteousness.

Verily, and good night.

Amen

LOL Hoopie, okay

Hey Wake, you wanna step outside? Huh???!!! That's what I thought!

No Comm'r we got another cold snap and it's in the 40's tonight. So I'll pass, but thanks for the offer.

So Whitaker decides tomorrow, if he commits to Au that MIGHT push us ahead of Bama on rivals

9:30 PM  
Blogger Comm'r of Flesh Wounds said...

Here's another prediction: JayGT does NOT win a Grammy tonight. Sorry.

UAt picked up a DB this evening. a JUCO that most thought they would get.

9:37 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

I hear Coleman spoke with Au coaches by phone just awhile ago.

9:38 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

Dequan Menzie, so nevermind Bama will boost up in the rankings as well

9:38 PM  
Blogger coosa said...

Jay G - Accusation was that you were an AU hater. At least, that was the one I addressed. I think there were several others, but you had about as many defenders as detractors.

D. Miller - So you think there is a chance I return to being normal after Wed? :)

9:39 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

jhag-I think Au stays with them when Whitaker commits. Don't you?

9:42 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

Yeah we will certainly be right there on their heels, Whitaker is a much better prospect, but im not sure how the point system works for the rankings

9:51 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

So the coaches spoke with Coleman...what came out of said discussion?

9:53 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

Not feelings so confident on Latti anymore, are you wtc?

9:54 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

Me neither. It will not bother me where AU winds up in the rankings. This a very good class. AU has to build on this class by getting another one like it in 2011. I am not a kool-aid drinker, so i am not going to start the 'we are going to win the west stuff.' You have to put a good product on the field. This class will help put a better product on the field than this last season if only because AU has more talented players to fill in as backups.

jeff lee is going to the Whitaker announcement, that should be a good sign

9:56 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

Seanzi- I thought no one would ask. I just heard that he called to say he was all AU and would sign with AU Wednesday. This person feels very confident in telling me that. He wasn't earlier because no one had heard from Coleman.

9:58 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

Jhag. I still feel confident with Lattimore. I could be all wrong but I feel he comes to AU.

Just my opinion, but the only reason to stay at SoCarolina is to be close to home. Have they ever won more than 8 games in a season since SS has been there. They have played some good teams very close, but SS can't get enough athletes. If he stays, he should think of the quote that Newton's dad had. he will be a rented mule.

Blogger D. Miller said...

Coleman had a committable offer before this weekend... the myth that is being tossed about by UAT media that he didn't have a committable offer was just that... a myth spewed by UAT media...
He signs with AU.


don't believe everything you read on a USCjr message board regarding Lattimore....

10:01 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

Why would Latt be a silent to USCjr like they think he is? IT would help USCjr efforts to have a stud like Latt committed...
He has already said if he was going to USCjr he would already be committed.
When was the last time Spurrier put a decent running game together?

Where did you hear Coleman had a committable offer before this?

10:10 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

If he does sign with USC, I feel like it's because he was pressured, and I feel sorry for the young man. I am a homer. Auburn would be the best place for him.

10:10 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Thanks, wtc and dmiller.

10:11 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Looks like we're near a flip

10:12 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

If he does sign with USCe its bc it is his hometown state, everyone around him wants him to be a gamecock, and he is scared of Dyer

10:13 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

JayG-A great story, when this is done would be to ask some of these kids about their visits to other schools. How they went? Why they chose AU? Why they did not choose another school?

Since on some sites you are an AU homer and others you are an AU hater, you could possibly feed both sides.

I can't wait until Wednesday!!! I think it is going to be so fun. But, I am not going to have access to computer so I am going to have to figure out how to get news.

10:15 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Both are good reasons to stay home. I just think he would have announced for usce already if that's where he wanted to go.

10:16 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Jhag... Who are you committing to?

10:17 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

You think he is scared of Dyer? I haven't heard that, but I don't read everything. Where did that come from? I only hear they are friends and talk all the time.

10:17 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Bout that time!
