Auburn's offer list up over 60 and counting....

Much has been said already about Auburns recruiting efforts for the 2011 class. For the first time in a long time, Auburn is recruiting on a national scale instead of focusing mainly on kids in-state and in the nearby surrounding regions of Georgia, Florida, Tennessee and Mississippi. Auburn didn't jump out right away and offer tons of players right out of the shoot. Auburn offered a few players early they felt like would be good fits, but recently they have extended several offers to players they have been closely watching and evaluating. Head Coach Gene Chizik and recruiting coordinator Curtis Luper have been quoted numerous times saying they are looking for the "right fit" for Auburn. Just because a player can play football, does not mean he can play football at Auburn. The official offer list is now up to over 60 players and growing of players they feel can play at Auburn. The coaches have had time now to talk to teachers, guidence couselors, neighbors and parents etc. and have been able to pinpoint several players they believe will be great additions to the Auburn family. Here is the list of those 60 plus prospects Auburn has officially offered as of today....

Quarterbacks
Jeff Driskel - 6'3" - 225 - 4.5 forty - Oviedo, FL (Hagerty) - U.S. Army All-American. May be the top dual-threat QB in high-school football. Some have even compared Jeff to Tim Tebow. Whether Driskel is the next Tebow is yet to be seen. He does however have an amazing arm, can make any throw needed and has more than enough athletic ability and speed to buy time in the pocket. He will commit this summer and most expect it to come down to AU or FL. - Driskel Highlight Video from ESPN

Kiehl Frazier - 6'3" - 215 - 4.6 forty - Springdale, Ark (Shiloh Christian) - Staking his claim to the best dual-threat QB in high-school football is Kiehl Frazier. He put up ridiculous numbers as a junior, throwing for 3,817 yards and 48 TD's. He also ran for 746 yards and added 14 more TD's on the ground. Auburn would love to get Frazier and so would everyone else in the country. Right now he seems to be wide open between his list of suitors, which include AU, ARK, LSU, Miami, N.D. and Michigan. - Frazier Highlight Video

C.J. Uzomah - 6'5" - 235 - 4.7 forty - Suwanee, GA (North Gwinnett) - Uzomah is a little more raw than Driskel and Frazier, but he has tons of tools to work with and a lot of upside. He's very smart at the QB position and usually makes a good decision with the ball. He also has very good agility and moves around in the pocket well. He has offers from AU, AL, Clem, TN, UGA and LSU.

Christian Lemay - 6'2" - 200 - 4.5 forty - Matthews, NC (Butler) - Lemay has only narrowed it down to 10. AU is among them, but his offer list is a who's who in college football. Auburn will be fighting FL, UGA, AL, Clemson, TN, LSU, Miami, Notre Dame and others for his services. - Lemay Highlight

Michael Brewer - 6'1" - 175 - 4.7 forty - Austin, TX (Lake Travis) - TX Tech Commit. Likes Tuberville alot. Shocker if he switches.

Running Backs

Isaiah Crowell - 5'11" - 190 - 4.4 forty - Columbus, GA (Carver) - Really likes AU and plans to return for a visit for A-Day. Could be AU/UA battle, but Crowell has offers from everybody and is easily one of the top 5 RB's in the class of 2011. He has outstanding speed and is a threat to score every time he touches the ball. - Crowell Highlight 

Aaron Green - 5'10" - 180 - 4.4 forty - San Antonio, TX (James Madison) - AU is a long shot as of right now. Green is a lightning fast speed back who might actually be a little faster than his listed 4.4 speed. He has offers from everybody and he's already been to TX who has rolled out the red carpet for him. Auburn's trying to get him to visit, along with everybody else. - Green Highlight 

Demetrius Hart - 5'8" - 190 - 4.4 forty - 275 Bench - 475 Squat - Orlando, FL (Dr. Phillips) - Hart is an explosive player with big time speed. He'll play RB at the college level, but could also be a kick returner for whoever he signs with as well. He says he wants to take all of his visits before he makes a decision, but he does have a top 3 already. AU, AL and FL are his favorites in no particular order. - Hart Highlight 

Mike Blakely - 5'9" - 195 - 4.4 forty - Bradenton, FL (Manatee) - Blakely could be the best RB in the state of Florida this year and is without a doubt one of the best RB's in the country. He loves Clemson, which was the first school to offer him and they've done a great job recruiting him, as he's already developed some relationships there. He also likes Florida a lot right now as well. AU is probably his 3rd team up though and he will visit AU at the end of the month. - Blakely Highlights 

Andrew Buie - 5'9" - 190 - 4.5 forty - Jacksonville, FL (Trinity Christian) - AU is a long shot right now as they are not mentioned in his top 5, but the Tigers are trying to get a visit from Buie and have officially offered.

Brent Calloway: 6'1" - 210 - 4.6 forty - Russellville, AL - AL Commit at LB. Probably won't switch unless he changes his mind and wants to play RB.

Wide Receivers

Nickalos Brassell - 6'2" - 175 - Batesville, MS (South Panola) - Brassell will be one of the top WR prospects in the South this year and possibly the country. He was named All-State as a sophomore after leading the state of MS in yards per catch. He says he's wide open but USC and AL probably lead. AU is trying hard to get a visit from him this fall.

Hakeem Flowers 6'2" - 175 - 4.4 forty - Greenville, SC (Wade Hampton) - Flowers is an interesting prospect as he can play WR or DB in college. He probably projects as a WR, but he can play either way. He's also interesting because he has somewhere in the neighborhood of 35 scholarship offers already. His offer list includes every top Division I school and then some. He claims no leaders at this point and is wide open between about 20 teams. - Flowers Highlight

Danny Woodson Jr. - 6'2" - 200 - 4.5 forty - 35 inch Vertical - Mobile, AL (LeFlore) - AU led, then AL (who was his childhood favorite) offered and put extreme pressure on him to commit. He committed to AL and he and his family are happy about it. He probably won't change his mind, but Auburn won't give up on him...and in recruiting, you never know.

Daryl Collins - 6'0" - 190 - 4.5 forty - Gadsden, AL (Gadsden City) - AU is trailing TN and AL right now but the good news for Auburn fans is AU has been on Collins from the beginning and was one of the first to offer. Collins says he likes many things about Auburn, from the coaches, to the city and enviornment. He says he really likes the idea of playing for Trooper Taylor as well.

Tacoi Sumler - 5'8" - 155 - 4.3 forty - 33 Inch Vertical - Miami, FL (Columbus) - It's hard to tell exactly where Sumler will play in college. He could play WR or RB. Most like him at WR because of his unbelievable speed and good hands. He's one of the few players in high school this year who runs a true 4.3 forty. Says he's wide open between 10 teams. - Sumler Highlights

Shamir Jeffery - 6'2" - 195 - 4.6 forty - St. Matthews, SC (Calhoun County) - His brother Alshon signed with South Carolina in February, so the Gamecoacks have an early lead in landing Shamir. AU is trying to get him to visit before he makes his decision.

Javares McRoy - 5'9" - 165 - 4.5 forty - Lakeland, FL - TX Tech Commit. Going with his brother. Shocker if he switches.

Sammy Watkins - 6'1" - 180 - 4.5 forty - Fort Myers, FL (South Fort Myers) - Watkins is a big time play-maker with good size, speed and agility. Most project Watkins as a WR in college, but his athletic ability could allow him to play both sides of the ball. Watkins will probably not make his decision until closer to signing day. AU is in his top 3.

Tight Ends

Jay Rome - 6'6" - 240 - Valdosta, GA - AU is probably in his top 5, but are behind UGA and FL at the moment. Rome plans on taking all of his visits before he decides and I expect AU to be one of those visits.

Brandon Fulse - 6'4" - 250 - 4.8 forty - Fort Meade, FL - U.S. Army Al-American. Fuse is without a doubt one of the best TE prospects in the country. He actually plays both ways in high school, starring at DE as well and some colleges think he would make a great defensive lineman. AU, as well as several other teams across the country, love his soft hands to go with his outstanding physical strength and athletic ability and believe he will be a great TE. He won't make his decision until close to signing day though, after he takes all of his visits. Auburn should be one of those visits, as his former teammate is Onterio McCalebb who is recruiting him to AU too.

Offensive Linemen

Spencer Region - 6'6" - 330 - Somerville, AL (Cullman) - AU Commit. Grew up an AL fan, but had a falling out with Nick Saban and immediately switched his commitment to AU. - Region Highlights 

Reese Dismukes - 6'3" - 272 - Spanish Fort, AL -  He grew up an Auburn fan, but was planning on announcing his intentions to play for Alabama a couple of weeks ago. That was before his good friend Spencer Region had a falling out with Nick Saban and made the switch to AU. Because of what transpired with Region, Dismukes put his decision on hold. Auburn jumped on the opportunity and has made up a lot of ground with Dismukes over the last couple of weeks. Projected as a true center in college and one of the top OL in the state of Alabama this year, expect Dismukes to land at either AU or AL and as it stands rigt now, AU probably holds a slight lead.

Brey Cook - 6'7" - 315 - 335 Bench - 435 Squat - Springdale, Ark (Har-Ber) - Brey Cook is one of the most sought after players in the country, reguardless of position. He's receiving extreme recruiting pressure everywhere he goes. Arkansas, Alabama and Oklahoma to name a few, have pulled out all the stops in effort to garner his signature. Cook wants to make a decision as soon as possible and says he may have his decision made by this spring. As to who the lucky school will be is anybody's guess. At this point, Cook is just trying to narrow down his list and go from there. He has been to AU on an unofficial and has an offer from the Tigers, though there is no word on where AU stands.

Watts Dantzler - 6'7" - 315 - 310 Bench - 430 Squat - Dalton, GA - Dantzler is one of the top OL in Georgia and in the country this year. He already holds an impressive offer list from some of the biggest football schools in the south and one of them is from Auburn. Although his offer list has grown to nearly 20, he says he already has a top 5 list of favorites. They include AU, AL, UGA, TN and Vandy in no particular order. Dantzler is an excellent student and will have no problems qualifying. He plans to announce his decision on his birthday, November 16th. - Dantzler Highlights 

Jordan Prestwood - 6'6" - 265 - 4.9 forty - 300 Bench - 450 Squat - Plant City, FL - Prestwood plays TE for his Plant City high-school team but many schools, including Auburn think he'll be an outstanding tackle. Prestwood shows exceptional footwork, lateral movement and athleticism for a guy his size, so it's easy to understand why coach Grimes thinks he could play OL at AU. Prestwood visited AU for junior day and came away impressed with what he saw. However, it will be a tough job to pry him away from his childhood favorite Florida State Seminoles, as they have offered him as well.

Jamar Lewter - 6'7" - 285 - Washington, D.C. (Ballou) - 275 Bench - 330 Squat - Lewter is a player whose stock is continually rising. He's got great feet and agility to go with his huge frame, which has many college coaches hot on his trail. Lewter plans to make his decision sometime in the summer but wants to take all of his visits before he does.

Taylor Doyle - 6'5" - 270 - Austin, TX (Lake Travis) - TX Commit. Shocker if he switches.

Thomas O'Reilly - 6'3" - 315 - Marietta, GA (Pope) - If Watts Dantzler isn't the best OL in Georgia this year, Thomas O'Reilly very well could be. O'Reilly is a big, strong and deceptivly quick OL that already has offers from several big time schools. He says right now his list of favorites are Ga Tech, UGA, FL, AU and AL in no particular order. Auburn expects to see O'Reilly in person this fall for an official visit. He doesn't have a time set for when his announcment will come, but does say he would like to stay closer to home. - O'Reilly Highlight 

Greg Robinson - 6'5" - 296 - 365 Bench - 525 Squat - Thibodaux, LA - Robinson is considered a heavy lean to LSU as it stands right now. He's grown up an LSU fan and believes that's where his heart is at the moment. He does however, want to take his visits before he makes his decision final just to make sure and AU should get a visit.

Antonio Richardson - 6'6" - 310 - 305 Bench - 500 Squat - Nashville, TN (Ensworth) - Richardson is definitly a big time, elite OL prospect. He holds offers from AU, AL, UGA, LSU, TN, OK, USC and others. Most think he'll end up in the SEC somewhere, even though he hasn't named a top 5 yet. He likes SEC football and says he's wide open between the teams that have offered him. He's looking for the right fit for him, will visit several schools this summer and will take his time making his decision.

Christian Westerman - 6'5" - 290 - Chandler, AZ (Hamilton) - 400 Bench - Westerman is arguably the nations top OL prospect for 2011. He has over 25 scholarship offers from every major football program in college football. TX is rumored to be the leader for his services as they have been recruiting him hard for well over a year, but Westerman claims no leaders at this time. He has not yet set a date for his announcement. - Westerman Highlights

Defensive Ends

LaMichael Fanning - 6'6" - 285 - Auburn, AL - Fanning played DE at Calloway high school in Georgia up until last year, when he moved with his mom and transferred to Auburn high. At Auburn High, he's played mostly DT. In college he could play either, as he's big and strong enough to play inside, but quick enough to play outside. He lists his current favorites as AU, AL and UGA, but he won't make his decision until closer to signing day.

Stephon Tuitt - 6'5" - 260 - Monroe, Ga - Tuitt is a speed rusher who can make tons of plays from the DE spot. Some teams that are recruiting him actually like him as a LB because of his speed and think he could thrive there. The two in-state schools, UGA and Ga Tech have been on him hard early, but Auburn has gotten on him recently as well. Auburn expects Tuitt in for a visit sometime in March. Tuitt wants to take some visits before he decides, but would like to have his mind made up this summer.

Xzavier Dickson - 6'3" - 240 - Griffen, GA - Dickson is an interesting prospect. He grew up a Georgia fan, claims AL as his slight leader, but really likes AU and FL too. Expect his decision to come after a fierce recruiting battle that may go until signing day.

Sterling Bailey - 6'5" - 235 - 4.7 forty - Gainesville, GA (East Hall) - Bailey doesn't have a top list of favorite schools at the moment but he's already been to S. Carolina, Florida, Georgia and Clemson. He already liked the hometown UGA Bulldogs before his visit and they certainly didn't hurt themselves when he visited Athens last month. Auburn is throwing their hat in the ring as well and is trying to secure a visit from Bailey before he makes his decision. They've got plenty of time, as he doesn't expect to make a decision any time soon.

Keymiya Harrell - 6'6" - 235 - Plantersville, AL (Dallas County) - AU slightly leads AL, TN and Miss St. Harrell visited the plains in January and liked what he saw, but his recruitment is far from over. He plans on taking all of his visits before making a decision.

Ray Drew - 6'5" - 245 - 4.7 forty - Thomasville, GA (Thomas County Central) - He says at the moment he's favoring playing at either FSU or UGA, but he won't make his decision until closer to signing day so that could change. He does like AU and that gives the Tigers plenty of time to secure a visit and try to do what they can to land his services. Drew has close to 20 offers at this time so look for his recruitment to be intense.

JaBrian Niles - 6'3" - 225 - 4.5 forty - 300 Bench - Mobile, AL (Davidson) - Niles grew up an AU fan and really likes Auburn. He recently picked up an offer from the Tigers to go along with offers from other big time schools such as FL, FSU, Ole Miss and AL. As it stands right now, the Tigers are the odds on favorite to land Niles this February.

Defensive Tackles

Gabe Wright - 6'3" - 275 - 395 Bench - Columbus, GA (Carver) - Wright is one of the top players in high-school this year reguardless of position and as good of a DT as there is. He has offers from everybody, including FSU, UGA, AL and AU. He visited AU on Febrary 25th with his teammate Isiah Crowell and came away with glowing remarks for Auburn. He says he's wide open and AU will be one of his finalists when he makes his decision. - Wright Highlights 

Bo Tillman - 6'6" - 280 - Wesson, MS (Copiah Lincoln C.C.) - Tillman originally signed with Southern Miss out of Franklin County high school in Meadville, MS and was a 4 star DT prospect. However, he failed to qualify and enrolled at Copiah Lincoln C.C. and has been working on his grades there, while prepping for the SEC. Bo Tillman's half brother, Marcus is in his senior year at Ole Miss and his cousin Josh Tillman is a heavy Ole Miss lean. Bo Tillman will probably end up at one of the Mississippi schools or Auburn and have three years to play two.

Kevin McReynolds - 6'2" - 280 - 395 Bench - Washington, D.C. (St. Johns College High) - McReynolds holds offers from several big time schools including LSU, USC, Ohio St. and UNC and others. Recently, he picked up an offer from Auburn and says the idea of playing for Tracy Rocker is very intriguing to him. The Tigers have been recruiting McReynolds very hard as of late and will be one of his finalists when he makes his decision. His decision though, won't come for a while as he plans to take all of his visits first to make sure he makes the right decision. As it stands right now, AU is in good shape with the big DT. - McReynolds Highlight 

Linebackers

Denzel Perryman - 6'0" - 215 - Coral Gables, FL - Perryman is one of the top LB prospects in the country for 2011. In fact, Perryman already holds somewhere around 15 scholarship offers from many of the top programs around the country, including one from AU. He claims to be wide open at this time and will take his visits before announcing his favorite school.

Chris Landrum - 6'2" - 215 - 4.6 forty - Sweet Water, AL - Landrum visited Auburn early in February and picked up an offer from the Tigers. He came away very impressed with the Auburn coaches and said he is seriously considering AU. However, it will be a tough battle with his childhood favorite Alabama, who recently offered Landrum as well. He says he wants to take more visits and take his time with recruiting, but look for the battle for Landrum to be between AU and AL.

Arrington Jenkins - 6'2" - 217 - Miami, FL (Killian) - Jenkins plays DE and OLB for Killian High and he's caught the attention of Auburn, FSU and Ole Miss, who have all offered. A date for Jenkins announcement is not set as of yet and he plans to take his visits before he decides. Auburn will be one of those visits.

Lateek Townsend - 6'2" - 200 - 4.6 forty - Bennettsville, S.C. (Marlboro County) - Townsend stars on both offense and defense for his high school team, playing LB and FB. He projects as a LB in college and he'll have his choice of just about anywhere he wants to go. Lateek has at least 20 offers and claims he's wide open right now, wants to take his visits and find what he feels are the right surroundings for him. Auburn is hoping to get one of those visits.

Terrance Smith - 6'4" - 210 - 4.6 forty - 315 Bench - 425 Squat - Decatur, GA (Southwest Dekalb) - Smith is another highly touted LB prospect that has offers from all the big dogs. Right now he seems to be favoring either AL or FSU, but Auburn is trying to get him to visit and have offered a scholarship. AU will have to make up time quickly though. Smith wants to make his decision early this summer.

Kris Frost - 6'3" - 210 - 4.6 forty - 300 Bench - 385 Squat - Matthews, N.C. (Butler) - Frost is a big time prospect and will without a doubt be one of the top 5 players in North Carolina in 2011. He's already visited Auburn, as well as Virginia Tech, South Carolina, NC State, North Carolina and others. With around 10 offers, he's trying to visit as many schools as he can, so that he makes the right decision. That decision won't come until signing day and as of right now he says every team is equal and he has no leaders.

A.J. Johnson - 6'3" - 225 - 4.6 forty - Gainesville, GA - Johnson committed to TN last summer, but backed out of that verbal commitment when Lane Kiffen left for USC. He has now reopened his commitment and isn't expected to make a decision any time soon. His early list of favorites are TN, Miami and UGA, but AU is working hard to make up ground. - Johnson Highlights

Shannon Brown: AL commit. Probably won't switch.

Chris Sanders: UGA Commit. Shocker if he changes.

Cornerbacks

Jonathan Rose - 6'2" - 170 - 4.5 forty - Leeds, AL - AU leads AL, FSU, UGA and Southern Miss, who have all offered. He's the son of Charles Rose, who played safety for Auburn in the 90's. The younger Rose visited Auburn earlier in Feruary and impressed the Tiger coaches enough to receive an offer. Coaches Chizik and Lolly love his coverage skills and his size and think he could be a great corner for AU. Rose wants to take some visits and make sure he is making the right decision, but it will be a major shocker if he doesn't sign with Auburn.

Josh Turner - 6'0" - 185 - 4.4 forty - Oklahoma City, OK (Millwood) - Turner already has over 20 scholarship offers. He is a two-sport standout and also excells in basketball. So far Turner has been making the rounds in the midwest, seeing schools like TX and OK St. AU recently offered Turner and is trying to make up ground with him. - Turner Highlights

Cameron Martin - 6'2" - 170 - 4.5 forty - Mobile, AL (McGill Toolen) - Martin plays safety for McGill Toolen and has started there since his freshman year. It's unclear at this point exactly what position AU sees Martin playing on the plains, but they believe he has enough speed to play corner and at 6'2" his height would definitly be an asset there. If he doesn't play corner, he should be an excellent prospect at safety.

Derek King - 5'10" - 185 - 4.3 forty - 10.7 100 meter - Brentwood, TN (Brentwood Academy) - Wide open between AU, TN, AL, UGA and Ole Miss where his father played. He says he's got a long way to go before he makes his decision and it won't come until close to signing day.

Safeties

Izauea Lanier - 6'1" - 190 - 4.5 forty - East Mississippi C.C. - 1st AU Commit. Shocker if he changes. Signed with AU in 09 but had to go the Juco route to get his grades up. Now he's back, with 3 years to play 3/

Erique Florence - 6'2" - 180 - 4.4 forty - 235 Bech - 355 Squat - Valley, AL - AU leads AL, FL, LSU, FSU, UGA and Ga Tech who have all offered. Florence may be the top safety in the class of 2011. Erique is a terrific athlete who is a 3 sport star for Valley high school in football, basketball and baseball. His future however, is on the gridiron and his recruitment will be a heated battle. Florence is terrific in coverage and hits like a LB. Auburn was one of the first teams to offer Florence and he's been to AU a couple of times already. He took in the Iron Bowl last year and came away very impressed with the Tigers and the game day atmosphere. He recently stated AU had a slight lead. - Florence Highlights

Anthony Swain - 6'2" - 185 - 4.5 forty - Gadsden, AL (Gadsden City) - Swain visited AU a few weeks ago with his good friend and teammate Daryl Collins. Both came away with great things to say about AU and Swain walked away with his first offer. As it stands right now, AU is in very good shape with Swain and should be there as a finalist when he makes his decision. The Auburn coaches love Swains abilities on the football field and describe him as a player that can run with anybody, but will hit you too. Expect AU to make a very strong run at Swain all the way to the end.

Kadetrix Marcus - 6'0" - 185 - 4.6 forty - 37 Inch Vertical - Powder Springs, GA (Lindale) - Marcus says AU is very high on his early list of favorites and plans to come back to camp at AU. He has great size, decent speed and is known to be a very physical football player as well. He also has very good hands and could actually play WR in college as well. As it stands right now, Auburn looks like the team to beat.

Christion Jones - 6'0" - 185 - 4.5 forty - 335 Bench - 410 Squat - Adamsville, AL (Minor) - Jones has offers from TN, N.D., Ga Tech, Louisville and others but says AU has a strong lead. Jones plans to come back for a visit to the plains during spring practices. He has had nothing but glowing remarks for everything AU and at this point, it would be surprising if he didn't sign with the Tigers in February. - Jones Highlight 

Avery Walls - 5'11" - 185 - 4.5 forty - 31 Inch Vertical - McDonough, GA (Union Grove) - AU is in his top 5 of an impressive offer list that includes over 25 teams. Walls has already visited Auburn once, but should return again this fall. He will be one of the top safety prospects in high school football in 2011. - Walls Highlight

Wayne Lyons - 6'1" - 190 - 4.5 forty - Ft. Lauderdale, FL (Dillard) - Lyons is a very intense, agressive and physical player in the defensive backfield. He's got good size, speed, and is outstanding delivering the hit. Lyons has the big time football schools knocking down his door, but he's also very smart and even has a scholarship offer from Harvard. - Lyons Highlight 
Below is a list of recruits that are on the bubble of getting an offer. With these guys, Auburn is activly recruiting them and an offer could come at any time.
 
Quaterbacks

Stephen Rivers - 6'6" - 200 - Athens, AL - Rivers already has offers from TN, UCLA, Ariz St., Miss St., NC St. and others. Auburn is watching Rivers closely and could end up offering if some of their other QB prospects decide to go elsewhere, or if Rivers has a big year. If the Tigers do offer, most think they would be in good shape with Rivers, as he would love to play so close to home. He also grew up an Auburn fan, so that doesn't hurt either. Don't be surprised if Rivers gets an offer before signing day is over. Rivers Highlights

Offensive Linemen
Travis Bodenstein - 6'5" - 295 - 315 Bench - Springdale, Ark (Shiloh Christian) - Gus Malzahn offered Bodenstein when he was at Tulsa and even though an official offer hasn't come from Auburn yet, Malzahn has continued to recruit him hard. Bodenstein has been to Auburn several times since then on his own dime and claims to love the place. If Auburn were to offer, I believe they would be the favorite to sign him. Teammates with Kiehl Frazier. Bodenstein Highlights 

Alex Barr - 6'6" - 270 - 260 Bench - 400 Squat - Fayetteville, GA (Starr's Mill) - Barr is a player to watch in 2011. He hasn't received a lot of offers yet but he's being recruited by a lot of big time schools. GA Tech and Maryland have been recruiting him hard as well as AU. Alex likes Auburn and has plans to visit AU before making a decision.

Quincy McKinney - 6'4" - 295 - Columbus, GA (Carver) - McKinney already has offers from FSU, Ga Tech, MD, UNC, S. Carolina and others. Auburn hasn't offered yet but they have been activly recruiting him pretty hard. He hasn't visited Auburn yet, but says AU is in his top 5 along with Ga Tech, UNC, Clemson and Duke. Expect McKinney to visit Auburn sometime before he decides and he very well could receive an offer at any time. McKinney Highlights

Wide Receivers

Joseph Morrow - 6'5" - 200 - 4.5 forty - Ocean Springs, MS - Morrow already has offers from all of the in-state Mississippi schools and is receiving interest from many more. After a visit to Auburn recently though, he says there is no doubt AU is on top. Auburn is recruiting him hard and could offer at any time. If they do, it will only solidify his opinion of AU, but he doesn't plan on making a decision any time soon. He wants to wait and take his visits and make sure he's making the right decision. All signs though, point Morrow to AU on signing day. - Morrow Highlight Video 

 Defensive Ends

Devaunte Sigler - 6'4" - 250 - 4.6 forty - Mobile, AL (B.C. Rain) - Sigler is a DE/LB prospect that is being watched closely by Auburn, AL and others. He recently took a trip to Auburn and said he loved everything about AU. He also says he is really hoping for an offer from Auburn, because he could really see himself playing there. Sigler is planning on coming back to the plains several more times and will be in Auburn for junior day at the end of March.

Kameron Wood - 6'4" - 220 - 4.6 forty - Birmingham, AL (John Carroll) - Kameron has already visited Auburn and says if they offer he'll commit. He loves everything about Auburn, from the academics, to the people and the program. If Auburn doesn't offer, he'll likely get an offer from one of the other schools showing him interest, which includes several SEC schools. I would be shocked if Auburn doesn't offer at some point and Kameron becomes an Auburn Tiger.

Jamichael Payne - 6'1" - 328 - Auburn, AL - Payne grew up an Auburn fan and is basicly jumping up and down for an Auburn offer. He loves Auburn. If he gets an offer, he'll probably commit on the spot. He has made his intentions known to the coaches and they want to see him lose some weight before they offer. If he hits the gym hard, loses the weight and has a good year, he'll get his offer and Auburn will have a massive DT in the middle. He's planning to camp at AU this summer. Payne Highlights

Allan Carson - 6'0" - 325 - Oxford, AL - Carson already has offers from TN and Illinois and he is also receiving lots of recruiting attenton from several other colleges, including Auburn. Auburn hopes to get a visit from him sometime this summer or fall and if he has a good showing at the camps, the Tigers are likely to offer.

LineBackers

Ramik Wilson - 6'4" - 230 - 345 Bench - 455 Squat - Tampa, FL (Jefferson) - Wilson already has some offers from some pretty good schools. Tommy Tuberville and TX Tech have offered, as have UCF, Purdue, Illinois, East Carolina and others. However, Ramik says he loves Auburn and really wants to visit and see the Tigers up close and personal. Ramik stars at Jefferson on both sides of the ball, playing TE as well as LB. He projects as a LB in college because of his relentless pursuit and great hitting ability. Wilson is going to a couple different camps this summer including the Nike Rise Camp. When he does, I expect his name to skyrocket. Ramik's Offensive Highlights 

Jake Howton - 6'2" - 180 - 4.5 forty - Cordova, AL - Howton is a player several SEC schools are watching closely and are on the brink of offering. Auburn is one of those schools and as it stands right now, AU seems to be Howton's favorite. If Howton has a good senior year, there's little doubt he'll end up in the SEC somewhere, and if AU offers they are the odds on favorite. He recently visited AU and says he loved everything about his visit. Howton scores 3 TD's

Maleki Harris - 6'3" - 190 - 4.5 forty - Cordova, AL - Harris has offers from Vandy, Southern Miss and others but could receive one from Auburn. He visited AU recently and said he loved everything about his visit. Harris grew up an AL fan, but they have not shown interest. Since they aren't, Maleki says he could definitly see himself switching hs allegiance to AU. If the Tigers were to offer, they would have to be the front runner. Harris Highlight 

Matthew LeFlore - 6'3" - 215 - 4.6 forty - Cordova, TN - LeFlore doesn't have any offers but he's receiving strong interest from several teams accross the south. He lists his top 3 as AU, TN and Louisville but if Auburn were to offer he'd probably commit. His cousin is Daren Bates, who he is more like brothers with. They would love to play together at Auburn.

Cornerbacks

Dwayne McCalebb -  5'9" - 170 - 4.5 forty - 225 Bench - Fort Meade, FL - Dwayne is the younger brother of AU running-back Onterio. Dwayne hasn't received an offer yet, but says he's being recruited by several big time schools. FSU, AL, TX Tech, UGA, LSU and Auburn are all showing serious interest. Dwayne however, makes no bones about the fact that he really likes AU and wants to play with his brother if he can. While he's waiting on an offer, he plans to visit AU several times during the next year and has already planned trips in the spring and summer.

Jermaine Whitehead - 6'0" - 185 - 4.5 forty - Greenwood, MS (Amanda Elzy High) - Whitehead already has offers from Ole Miss, Miss St., TN  and others and is being recruiting pretty heavy by AU as well. He believes Auburn is getting close to offering and Whitehead is very interested in AU. He's planning a visit in April to check out the Tigers, but he says he's not close to making a decision yet. He probably won't until closer to signing day, after he's taken all his visits.

Safeties

Alex Dixon - 6'1" - 185 - 4.5 forty - Clearwater, FL (Countryside) - FSU, WVU and South Florida have already offered and Auburn is showing strong interest. Auburn hopes to get Dixon to visit sometime this summer and if they offer, will probably be in his top 3 at least. Even though he hasn't seen AU yet, he's had nothing but good things to say about Auburn.
