Pre-recruitmas thread

Hey everyone. Today is National Signing Day. You may have forgotten.

I'll be updating the blog once I arrive at Auburn and the LOIs begin pouring in via fax. It's a glamorous job. Don't hate.

As people sign, I'll add their bios to this here site. Since Auburn already had five LOIs in hand well before the stroke of 6 a.m., when schools can begin accepting signed papers, let's look at them.

QB Cam Newton, 6-6, 245, Atlanta (Florida/Blinn College)
Newton spent two years at Florida, one of them a redshirt season, before moving to a central Texas junior college last spring. Newton blossomed at Blinn College, throwing for 22 touchdowns and rushing for another 16. He’s a dual-threat quarterback who could add a new dimension to the Tigers' run-based spread attack. Newton is 21. He’s strong and he's expected to challenge for the starting job immediately. Rivals.com rates Newton a five-star recruit. Scout.com gave him four stars.

OL Roszell Gayden, 6-7, 310, Robbinsdale, Minn. (College of the Sequoias)
Gayden signed with Minnesota out of high school, but academic shortcomings led him to a prominent California junior college. He improved significantly there, adding upper body strength while improving his footwork. Coaches believe he’s a made-to-order tackle who can compete immediately for the vacant job at right tackle. Both Rivals.com and Scout.com list Gayden as a four-star recruit.

TE/OL Brandon Mosley, 6-6, 285, Jefferson, Ga. (Coffeyville CC)
Mosley didn’t sign with a four-year college out of high school and instead headed for a Kansas junior college to build a resume. He succeeded there, starring as a tight end and moonlighting at defensive end. Mosley’s career could go in one of two directions at Auburn — tight end or offensive line. He redshirted in Kansas, which means Mosley has only two years remaining. Rivals.com rates him as a four-star recruit. Scout.com gave him three stars.

LB Jessel Curry, 6-2, 215, Buford, Ga. (Buford)
Curry, who signed with Auburn in December, won three state championships during his career at Class 2A Buford High in Georgia. He is the son of former North Carolina and Atlanta Falcons linebacker Buddy Curry. Coaches believe Curry has the instincts, aggression and skills to be an above-average player in the middle or on the weak side. He is reminiscent of former Auburn player Adam Herring. Rivals.com and Scout.com list Curry as a three-star recruit.

DL Craig Sanders, 6-4, 230, Ariton (Ariton)
Sanders committed to Alabama last summer, but changed his mind during the season. He signed with Auburn in December. Sanders handled a variety of roles at Ariton, where a small roster size demanded versatility. He is a raw athlete, so Sanders probably needs a season on the scout team to better grasp his Auburn role. He’s listed as a defensive end, but Sanders could emerge as a tackle. Intensity is his thing. Rivals.com and Scout.com list Sanders as a four-star recruit.

2!

Ok- Things are still not good in the recruiting front. Apparently, Mosely and Dyer are seriously thinking about switching commitments to Arky. These last few days have not been good on the news front. Hopefully these two sign with Auburn today, but that is not a lock.

Eddie,

Do I need to have WTC's mom wash your mouth out with soap?

Staring Eddie as The Grim Reaper.

6:48 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Eddie has been replaced by his sister, Debbie Downer!

6:48 AM  
Blogger CH=B said...

Eddie, Mosley is slightly thinking about it but Dyer is AU all the way.

6:48 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Please tell me we aren't the same in recruiting as we are in games, we look good early and just can't close the deal.

6:49 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Say what you want, I'm just passing on what seems to be truthful. I caught hell for Lattimore yesterday, but sorry, just letting you know what I'm seeing.

6:49 AM  
Blogger jhag said...

2 star Ladarius Phillips to AU 6'1 260 fullback...he was committed to Ga Southern...

so im hearing

6:49 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

WTH???!! Why all of a sudden - after committing ahwile back and recruiting other players during their visits - would Dyer switch to Arkansas???!! Debbie Downer is right! GOSH!

6:53 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Everybody can call me Debbie Downer if they want to. I'm simply stating what is out there right now and both Mosely and Dyer are going to the same school and had serious thoughts about as to witch school it will be. I'll find the link with the story also stating that. Go ahead and get on me, but I thought you would like to know. I apologize if you didn't.

6:55 AM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

Ease up, Eduardo.

6:56 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Eddie,

Just messing with you, it's ok.

6:57 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

That's why I just follow recruiting from a distance, too much passion about fickle kids.

6:58 AM  
Blogger coosa said...

PM talked to Mosley's dad and he said its AU all the way.

6:58 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Nah, I figured everyone just giving me a hard time. I just hope that I'm wrong on this being a fact, that he is indeed wavering.

6:58 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Ok...maybe here is some good news:

Mike Farrell of Rivals:
Arkansas did their best last night to sway Michael Dyer and Dakota Mosley from Auburn but it didn't work, both will be signing with Auburn I hear.

7:00 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

So we officially have a kicker and a WR:

Parkey
Goodwin

7:02 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

That's better, Eddie!

7:03 AM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

After his performance in the Under Armour game, I'm not surprised Parkey got his papers in as quickly as possible. :)

7:08 AM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

OOoo Yea - Me Likes this Bio-Thingy.

Hope Jay has to do some research on a couple of signees that weren't on the list but LOI to Auburn.

7:08 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Now Jet...that's just not nice. Try some sun :)!

7:08 AM  
Blogger ehyou said...

I'm hearing through my pipelines that we're gonna sign some really good players today.

Just thought y'all might want to know.

7:09 AM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

LOI's are starting to appear on Rivals......

7:09 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

To add what WTC's Mom has already stated, Mike Farrell of Rivals said he has heard from a close source that Lemonier will sign with Auburn.

7:10 AM

War recruitmas! Keep 'em coming Jay. You're doing an awesome job!

Merry Recruitmas!! I hope St. Chiz brings us lots and lots of goodies!

7:11 AM  
Blogger Loganville Tiger said...

I apologize if I missed it in an earlier post, but what is the latest rumor/scoop on Coleman?

7:12 AM  
Blogger stupup74 said...

I can't wait to see what the recruitmas fairy left in in my stocking and me recreaster basket.

7:12 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

Got a 6 pack of Red Bull and a bag of chips. I am ready to go.

7:12 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Logan- All signs point to Coleman being a Tiger at this point.

7:13 AM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

Four cups of coffee in. Have to take the Stewardess to the daughter, but the Crackberry will be buzzing.

wtc, that doesn't sound like the breakfast of champions.

7:14 AM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

Luv ...

WTC's Mom is waaaaay too busy to cook the eggs, grits sausage, biscuits and gravy breakfast.

7:17 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

Well, it was actually a 2 egg white omelet with Ham & cheese and a piece of wheat toast with some juice.
That didn't sound as stoked as the Red Bull.

7:18 AM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

Michael, long snapper, signed with the Grazin' Goats of West Montana A&M.

7:18 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

I am going to try something I saw last night. Chicken fried bacon.

7:19 AM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

WTC ... some things are better left unsaid.

7:19 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

SO Auburn Rivals guy thinks we do not get BJones today. He does think we get Lemonier.

7:20 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

LOL, Jet!

7:20 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

I seriously considered calling in today. Sitting in the captain's chair, drinking coffee and watching NSD proceedings sounds much more appealing than taking x-rays!

7:21 AM  
Blogger AUnMobilz (Mr. FAH!) said...

Luv,
so you saying you gonna be in late today????

7:23 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

no one should have to mess with x-rays on National Signing Day. There'll be enough excitement radiating from The Plains.

7:24 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Well, looks like we capped our class with 2 signees. Everyone else must have defected.

7:25 AM  
Blogger AUnMobilz (Mr. FAH!) said...

ok #3 Steven Clark P/K LOI is in the Hizzay

7:25 AM  
Blogger Eddie said...

WTC- Do you think they offered BJones teammate in the last few hours of last night to sway him?

7:25 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

Arky offered the Turner kid last week. I was told Jones called AU to see if they would and he was told no. Now, would they go ahead and do it so they can get him, I do not know.

7:27 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

cbclickbank hot on the 'cruitin' trail!

7:28 AM  
Blogger LuvAU1968 said...

AUnMobilz, heck no. I've been at work since 5:00.

7:29 AM  
Blogger wtc said...

Headed to the office. Coleman on the clock at 9:00am. I will be SHOCKED if AU does not get him, no matter what you have heard.

7:29 AM

Luv, keep the HABOTN minimized so you can stay updated!!!

If Coleman doesn't sign, it will be as if the recruiting fairy took a dump in my stocking.

7:32 AM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Shouldn't clickbank be over on the the Bama sites?

7:33 AM  
Blogger stupup74 said...

P - Clark
WR - Richardson
DT - Carter

Are Signed as tigers.

7:39 AM  
Blogger Norm said...

I get a kick out of the spambot posts.

Busy day here, I'll check in as often as possible. As with every other recruitmas day, I'd like to remind you to not be upset by the presents you do not get that you might have thought were coming your way. You already have the greatest recruitmas you can remember even if all your hopes and dreams do not come true.

Of course, maybe that's easy for me to say. I don't follow recruiting. 100% of my recruiting information comes from Homer and this blog.

Get Some!

I saw my shadow. I will go back in my hole of no championships and nothing to talk about until next decade.

Let us give thanks today, that we aren't UGA, their #1 recruit just dropped them for UT. Ouch.

7:50 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I now believe Auburn will sign Lemonier. Confidence: 90%.

7:50 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Perhaps a few percentage points higher.

7:51 AM

pardon me while I do a little dance. woooo

7:51 AM

good morning folks...been following on the Blackberry, now in the office.

Jay G, I agree on Lemonier...seems he's suddenly all AU!

My source is better than yours in this case. Better than wtc's mom, too.

I'm the original grim reaper, RK. Taught Eddie all he knows about repearing.

7:54 AM

The FSU boards are all downtrodden, I take it as a good sign.

Thanks for the scoop Jay. That WOULD be Welcome news.

Jay G laying down some knowledge right there.

that is indeed sweet news, JGT. Thanks for sharing. The Lattiless/Jones thing had me a bit down.

LOL Sensi.......

James Stone to UT...take that Saban muahahaha

7:55 AM  
Blogger Jay 'W. not Tate' said...

Jay G, you are my true "source". I was hearing he was suddenly an AU lean, to hear you say 90% (as you're usually pretty conservative) makes it 100% in my book.

7:56 AM

This reminds me of the helter skelter ripping of paper on Christmas morn during my childhood.

Happy days.

7:58 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Ed Christian (personal fave) and the first surprise signing: ATH LaDarius Phillips of Handley High.

7:58 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

that's a big surprise in that I haven't heard of him

7:59 AM  
Blogger LGGByron said...

Christian and Ledarius Phillips just signed.

7:59 AM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

Ladarius is a FB/DT from Handley High School in Roanoke.

8:00 AM  
Blogger Wakeriderof87 said...

Not the kind of surprise I was hoping for.

8:00 AM  
Blogger API said...

Surprise signing. I've had good surprises and the other kind. Even when I got a present I hated, I smiled and said "thank you". My momma taught me that.

8:00 AM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

wtc: I think a second DL/DE has made a private commitment. I wasn't able to get a name. I heard Lemonier.

8:00 AM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

I think you'll like Ladarius.

8:01 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Phillips has an entire star from Scout. He'll have 5 by the time he graduates from AU.

8:01 AM  
Blogger stupup74 said...

I was afraid Christian may have swapped to UT when he took that visit. Glad we got him. He has a chance to be really good.

Thanks JayG.

8:03 AM

Barton Simmons at Rivals is reporting Calvin Smith will pull the shocker of the day.

Could he be coming over with Lemonier?

8:04 AM

New thread UPZ.

8:04 AM

jhag-Never pushed him hard even though he took many visits. I am afraid we loaded up to get Lattimore. No huge back up plan at RB. But that is OK.

8:05 AM

I like the signing of phillips. You can ALWAYS use a big FB.
