Moving into the 10 o'clock hour

More NSD goodness:

LB Jake Holland, 6-1, 228, Pelham/Pelham HS
Holland grew up in a family that supported Alabama, but Holland made his Auburn-themed intentions known last spring. He's a thick, battering-ram type linebacker who can bring power to the Tigers' defense. He had a decent senior season, but his stock jumped significantly after a strong showing in the Under Armour All-American Game. Not that it mattered; Holland never considered another school. Rivals.com added a fourth star to the linebacker's rating in January. Scout.com gave him three stars.





LB LaDarius Owens, 6-2, 225, Bessemer/Jess Lanier HS
When he committed in September, Owens was the first big name to cast his lot with the Tigers. Shon Coleman didn't gain true notoriety until after the season. Owens chose Auburn over Alabama, which represented Gene Chizik's first in-state takeaway. James Owens, LaDarius' uncle, was the first black player to earn a scholarship at Auburn. Still, James Owens insisted that his nephew consider all options before making a decision. LSU also showed major interest through January — sending defensive coordinator John Chavis for an in-home visit well after Owens said his recruitment had ended. Rivals.com and Scout.com rate him as a four-star recruit.

JayG-Outstanding work today. Keeping up with blog and also posting bios on players. Obviously spent a lot of time putting that together. I and the others really appreciate the hard work you put into that. And I thought you just rode around the southeast going to pressers for HS athletes.

Concern over Reed ... I've heard the kid has no intent of not signing with Auburn, but is scared to death the school will f*up his grades if he does so.

JayG-

You are doing a solid job bro! The work you have put into this has been beyond impressive...I'm proud to be a daily...errrrrrrrr..hourly.. reader of this blog...

James Stone about to Hat Pick On ESPNU
UT, Tide, and TSU hat.

I hope he goes with the Too Tall Jones Alma Mater

10:28 AM  
Blogger AUBigCat said...

I'm a bit bummed over Howard but if the rumors about his call to Lattimore are true, then the coaches made the right call.

I've seen two sets of rumors about Reed recently... 1) will not sign today 2) will send his papers in around 1pm.

10:30 AM  
Blogger stupup74 said...

I like that James Stone kid. He really seems to get it. I hope he does well.

He will make my wife happy. She is a big UT fan.

10:31 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Here's the deal.

The "surprises" from here on out are Lemonier and another two-star lineman.

The DT from Hialeah apparently will not sign with Auburn.

10:31 AM  
Blogger Jimmy said...

James Stone - Vols

10:31 AM  
Blogger scottie durden said...

i figured Howard would sign when Lattimore went to USC. i was kinda stunned....for lack of a better word.

10:31 AM  
Blogger LGGByron said...

I've migrated down to the basement to watch the ESPNU show, I'm happy Stone's going to UT, instead of that other school.

10:31 AM

Jake Holland on JOX this morning - no worries there.
Bononomonono is on the west coast. It's like 3:15 am there. He'll fax when he gets up.

Auburn's situation at TB is far from terminal. Still have McCalebb and Mario Fannin and Aycock and Dyer.

Good deal JGT
We should be in fine shape.

I didn't mean to say there was any reason for alarm about the guys who haven't signed ...

10:33 AM

Scottie, he's got problems, thats why we didn't sign him.

I can honestly say that's the first time in my life that I've cheered when a recruit chose UT! Well Done Mr. Stone! Get some mullet heads!

Jake Holland is the lockiest lock of all-time locks.

We'll probably never know ... but I think Howard's Auburn offer was revoked.

10:34 AM  
Blogger martini35504 said...

BigCat, what was said in the call from Howard to Lattimore?

Can't wait to hear about the 2 Star lineman! Just kiddin' errrbody.

10:34 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Stone said he was going to sign with The University of Tennessee... in Chattanooga!

Isn't that what y'all heard?

10:35 AM  
Blogger Jay 'W. not Tate' said...

You can call me crazy, but I'm almost happy we didn't sign more backs. I want McCalebb to get his touches. Don't get me wrong...I'll take any 5* recruit, but my only fear all along with Latt was that he'd take touches from McCalebb.

Things to do today:
1. shave the cat
2. go to post office

4. call Cecil Hurt and ask him why UAT didn't want Shon Coleman

I agree with you JayG on the RB situation.

An idea for a story. How about doing a follow up on the kids that came to the Big Cat Weekend and where they signed?

10:40 AM

My stupid home Internet was out this morning... WTH AT&T?

10:42 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

Not sure about the call from Howard to Lattimore. Maybe just someone on the outside trying to diss the coaches by saying they did Howard wrong and lied to him. Not sure how they could lie to him when they told him he would play RB. He believed a reporter that wrote that he would play DB. Oh well.

10:42 AM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

To continue wtc's great idea. Compare the kids visited on the Limo trip also.

10:42 AM  
Blogger stupup74 said...

Aubie,

You can cross Cecil off your list. He will go on Goerbels (aka Finebaum's show) and spew the lie that Saban did not want Coleman.

Have fun shaving the cat.
