Trovon Reed finally finds the fax

After a few tense hours, WR Trovon Reed has faxed his paperwork to Auburn.

WR Trovon Reed, 6-0, 175, Thibodaux, La./Thibodaux HS
This Auburn staff has no problem shuttling players from one position to the next, which helps explain why they were so enthusiastic about Reed. He played quarterback exclusively in high school. Auburn believes he'll soon emerge as a play-maker at wideout and those coaches aren't alone -- Reed received offers from every SEC school and plenty of other major programs. He's extremely fast. He's unusually elusive in the open field. He looks like a cornerback, though, and needs more upper-body bulk. Reed looked fine while playing wideout at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, but he has plenty of technique work ahead. Rivals.com and Scout.com both rate him a four-star recruit.

And we're spent. Congrats to the staff for getting the job done.

Welp - Time to try to salvage at least part of the work day. Looks like we are home free now.....

Now, maybe I can actually get some work done...probably not.

UT signed a defensive coordinator?

Does Boise's DC have any eligibility left?

Excellent job by the coaching staff. Can't wait to see this offense with a mobile qb and a defense with more depth.

Toon-day Freaky. I like it. (yes, this is reposted from the other, ancient thread).

Yes, I'm late to the party, but it's been a busy day at work, too.

Merry Recruitmas, everyone. And yes, I'm glad I didn't make the 3.5 hour trek to Spartanburg last night, although it would have been worth it just to hang with JGT and Stephen Davis for a couple of hours.

And I'm glad Reed's in, too.

Fantastic job, JGT!!! You are the best non-AU fan ever.

I love how the LSU coaches (and his HS coach) were begging Reed to commit as early as this morning. Unbelievable that Chiz & Co. snagged the no. 1 player from a state like LA. He may have been the toughest catch of all.

Looks like AU will finish up at No. 3 on rivals. USC (no.4) just missed on a big time safety (going to WA)

USCw is going to pull in Seantrel Henderson...their class is an average 4.19 star rating LOL

We haven't had a lot of luck with players from Louisiana. I think one last year was from Louisiana. Before that, it seemed like every time we signed one, they didn't make it to campus.

Glad to see Trovon in the fold.

Next season will be very interesting. Don't overlook our second game, which I believe is at MSU. It could be tougher than you might think.

Blogger Comm'r of Flesh Wounds said...

The prior comments about Ladarious Phillips described him as a FB/DL. If you look at the clips, however, he's playing TB on every play (with a kid half his size blocking). It's amazing how fast he is.

I was hoping for some good interviews from scout/rivals people on the lunch hour show in Montgomery (740)....Stupid me! Just mindless, mindless, beyond mindless babble...Oh well...

1:11 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Comm'r, I am assuming he will be a DT, but I could be wrong. We really needed one more.

ESPNU courtesy of ESPN360 just decided to work on my computer. bout freakin' time!

Supposedly Kiffikin spent the night in his office waiting for faxes. What a frickin dork.

1:15 PM  
Blogger scottie durden said...

Wendi Nix is live from the UT sports complex. wonder if i should go say 'hi'. :)

1:16 PM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

Scottie ... you should go see Wendi and tell her the HOTTIES say "Get some."

1:21 PM  
Blogger Comm'r of Flesh Wounds said...

Steve, he probably will be a DL for AU. My point is that you don't see many 270lb kids with good enough quicks to play TB, let alone so well!! He will make a heck of a DL.

1:21 PM  
Blogger scottie durden said...

Jet....if only i could break away from work. if only....

May be a little late on this but Bonomolo is on board...That's curtains right?

1:23 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

Just read elsewhere that Bonomolo's paper are in. Better wait for Homer to make sure tho.

1:23 PM  
Blogger scottie durden said...

i just told a fellow co-worker about Wendi Nix being within 5 miles of our office. he about fell out of his chair. good times.

1:24 PM

No doubt. Homer has the final word.

I heard that as well, thats it, 27 for today 5 for 2009. Thats a wrap.

Blogger mwdeav said...

Jay G. ... so who was the big surprise that didn't happen?

1:24 PM  
Blogger patdyeswildturkey said...

The Jones kid from Ark didnt sign, so I assume thats when we went with the Fullback that will be a DL,

1:25 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

USC may have the most impressive class. They only have 16 recruits, but they are all about quality. If they sign many more, they could be the number 1 class.

1:26 PM  
Blogger Andrew said...

A year ago on NSD it was a celebration in the bammer media that rivaled the mythical national championship aftermath.

Today..A comparison to Auburn and all other great SEC recruiting classes that have failed. Shocker!

1:28 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

I really wish we had gotten Byran Jones, but we will be fine. Our depth issues are gone. Now we just need to get these guys some experience.

Welcome to the new recruits, many of whom will fill out our special teams. It should make a world of difference.

1:29 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

Steve ..I guess Kiffen will back the press down a bit with this class. That is until he commits his next stoopid act.

1:29 PM  
Blogger stupup74 said...

Had to get a C in the class with Pugh moving on after next season.

Great, Great day.

1:30 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

I am glad Kiffikin went to USC. I had no problem with Pete Carroll. Kiffikin is fun to dislike.

I think I am going to like Derek Dooley at UT, too. He seems like a good guy.

1:30 PM  
Blogger Hoopie said...

It will take a couple of seasons before this class makes a huge difference. At least we won't have such a precarious depth chart.

1:32 PM  
Blogger Andrew said...

Derek Dooley does seem like an outstanding guy. Though ESPNU gives all the credit to $aban for Dooley's success..

So I guess UT should be thanking the little one for saving their class and keeping them top 10. Good grief.

1:32 PM  
Blogger SteveFC said...

Hoopie, this class will impact the defense and special teams immediately. I don't really see any of them starting on defense, but you will definitely see some new linebackers get playing time. It will make a difference.

Bonomolo's papers were "cleared" while I was getting some grub at Momma G's. They were in at least two hours ago ...

I'll put up a new thread momentarily.

Momma G's......jealous.

1:34 PM

And they will be working with guys that have been in the line of fire. Hopefully they can coach them up as well as be that much better not having to play all 117 plays in a game

1:35 PM

According to Scout.com, Bono is in. Are there anymore surprises? OR is the hay in the barn? (don't hate-couldn't resist)

I am euphoric over our class of signees. Congrats to Chizik and Co. for working their butts off. I'm sure the dividends will soon be showing.

And thank you Jay G for working your butt off for our pleasure ...and your paycheck. It is very much appreciated.

What's up with Tubs and his Raiders......how did he do?

Just asking!!!!

PS, Quit wearing that stupid tight white t-shirt under your coaches shirt. You don't have guns like me.

Also, my wife wants to tell your buddy Paul to get off his knees while he is in your office. She will not appear on that show.
