  1. In his announcement, Wiltfong made a statement about Walker telling him earlier this week that he knew he wanted to play at AU when he stood in Jordan Hare at night on his visit. So from that it doesn’t sound like this was some last minute flip….White could have been Auburn’s all along. So let’s not discount this staff’s efforts working with him, and the appeal of what Auburn offers and just say “we paid him more”. This family doesn’t strike me as the type heavily influenced by money. They are pretty well off from what I can tell. This is his mom:

  3. The fact that this occurred without the field success just yet is amazing . Freeze is built for Auburn and Auburn is built for Freeze

  6. Interesting insights from White about why he chose Auburn. White, 6-3, 215 pounds, narrowed his list of scholarship offers to Auburn, Clemson and Baylor before picking the the SEC West school in large part because of Tigers coach Hugh Freeze. “Well, first, I think because Auburn chose me,” White said. “One thing I have learned is this is a two-way street. The entire staff there recruited me. Coach Freeze needs to get some sleep at some point. My gosh, he is so competitive. Auburn is a beautiful place with great football tradition. “My coach at Little Rock Christian had heard if Freeze became the coach at Auburn that I would be the guy he wanted. And sure enough I was the first 2024 he offered. When I took my visit, the entire football staff was out front to greet me. I knew from the second I showed up at Auburn that I was their priority recruit. Then when I stepped on the field at Jordan-Hare (Stadium), I felt something special and knew in my heart, ‘This place is it.’”

  7. “You know, in our time at Ole Miss whenever we came here I always looked at this place as a sleeping giant,” Aigamaua said. https://247sports.com/college/auburn/Article/Auburn-football-Hugh-Freeze-204148146/Amp/

  8. Been a minute since we went toe to toe with Dabo & Co and beat them for a big time recruit, especially QB.

  12. This is the TE “Walker White” said he was going after for Auburn. On Monday, 2024 tight end Martavious Collins announced that he was re-opening his recruitment. Collins had been committed to Alabama since July. This does not come as much of a surprise considering Collins made two unofficial visits to Auburn in recent months. He seemed to be intrigued by the new coaching staff on the Plains.

  13. Shooting and final shot aside, we lost this game due to heart and hustle. Every long rebound, every loose ball, every hustle play to be made, was made by UTx. There are things a team can do if they're not shooting well. Drive to the basket, force the rotations, make them chase the ball, force the action. We didn't accomplish any of them. There is no reason that sloppy Serb should've been available late in the game. We played soft and we played scared...besides Broome and even he was letting himself get pushed of the block creating hard angles for the entry pass and congestion in the midrange, clogging up the lanes Another thing, we'd routinely pass on the difficult shots and instead pass out to the impossible shot...which we'd inevitably take. KD needs to backup Westry on the bench. Our shot selection was embarrassing. Our rebounding efforts were embarrassing Yes, it was a foul on the last play but so what? That wouldn't hide the glaring deficiencies we have right now and it certainly didn't cost us the game.

  15. I've got a pretty good idea of what they are worth and even at the prices a dealer would pay it's quite a bundle. I have no intention of selling them, I like to look at those old cards of Roy Campanella, Pee Wee Reese, Jackie Robinson, Stan Musial, Mantle and Berra. I have an Aaron card that shows 13 career home runs on the back. I'm going to let the grandchild that inherits them worry about grading and selling.

  16. Pardon my geekdom but it just hit me Walker White backwards is White Walker. They lived in the frozen North beyond the wall in Game of Thrones. So Walker White was destined to play for Freeze. lol

  17. It's time to shift our focus to the 2024 class. Auburn has all but wrapped up the 2023 class barring some Spring Transfers which we'll discuss individually as they occur. Here is the official recruiting thread for the 2024 class. For now, I will just keep a list of commitments and visitors until it becomes more clear who we're targeting at each position. Commitments: 4* QB Walker White | 6'3" 225 lbs. | Little Rock, AR | 2-03-23 4* S Jayden Lewis | 5'10" 165 lbs. | Anniston, AL | 2-01-23 4* NB A'Mon Lane | 5'11" 180 lbs. | Moody, AL | 7-30-22 Visitors: NR S Tre Brown | visiting 2-28-23 | Auburn leads 4* OT Jonathan Daniels | visited 1-29-23 | Auburn vs Georgia 4* LB Myles Graham | visited 1-28-23 | Florida Commit 4* RB Brandon Hood | visited 1-28-23 | Penn State and Michigan State lead 4* S Travaris Banks | visited 1-28-23 | Alabama and Ole Miss lead 4* RB J'Marion Burnette | visited 1-28-23 | Auburn leads 4* CB Zion Ferguson | visited 1-28-23 | LSU Commit 4* LB Zavier Hamilton | visited 1-28-23 | Auburn leads 3* OT Jac'Qawn McRoy | visited 1-28-23 | Auburn leads 3* ATH Tevis Metcalf | visited 1-28-23 | Auburn leads NR Bobby Engstler | visited 1-28-23 | South Carolina leads NR LB Joseph Phillips | visited 1-28-23 NR OT Eagan Boyer | visited 1-28-23 NR ATH Kahnen Daniels | visited 1-28-23 | Mississippi State & Ole Miss lead NR K Coleman Franzone | visited 1-28-23 NR LB D'Angelo Barber | visited 1-28-23 | Louisville leads NR OT Kobe Williams | visited 1-28-23 | Southern Miss and Troy lead

  18. We lost our last 3 road games by a combined 11 points. All to teams who will be in the ncaa tournament. It’s hard as hell to win on the road vs quality competition with our more talented teams. Let alone this team that is clearly lacking in talent. Our coaches are coaching their asses off to put us in position to win but we don’t have the horses to get over the hump on the road yet Vs the better teams in our schedule. This is Bruce and staff best coaching job to me because of the obvious deficiencies.

  21. Here are the WRs that Niebuhr/Lee talk about in that podcast and have had some discussion around them since the shift to 2024 Cameron Coleman (Marcus Davis’s first 2024 WR offer) https://247sports.com/player/cameron-coleman-46115877/ Perry Thompson (Bama commit but visited AU early January and now is only “60%” committed) https://247sports.com/player/perry-thompson-46118293/ Ny Carr (UGA commit, attended Auburn’s JR day) https://247sports.com/player/ny-carr-46131259/ TJ Moore (his HC is Jeris McIntyre 😬) https://247sports.com/player/terrance-moore-46135215/ All of them are 6’3+ except Carr. Also 4* TE Martavious Collins just decommitted from Bama. He is one of the names Walker White called out. https://247sports.com/player/martavious-collins-46102029/ Also looking like Burnette may be about to do something.

  22. HF is going to shock people in a great way in the upcoming year. Don't think for a minute he is done getting positions of need. The optimism behind the scenes is more like an exhaustive all night party. Caddy's energy has not wained one bit.

  25. OK, so this leads me back to what I have been saying in this thread for the last several weeks. If we want to be elite, we have to beat Clemson for elite players, especially quarterbacks. This is the type of recruiting effort that we need to expect at Auburn. War eagle!

  30. On the road. Historically great defensive team. We are Not a talented team. Oh the team we were playing is only ranked in the top 5…. Like it’s college basketball. I’m honestly floored we weren’t blown out especially with how bad we played on offense. Our coaches put us in a great position to steal one with a great game plan.

  33. Yeah. We sign a pair of top 40 players and a 3 star PG (who was rated higher in football, and has probably never focused all his energy on basketball for more than a couple of months in his life) when losing just 2 from the playing rotation, and have a near 5 star PG signed to come next year when, due to the COVID rule, I'm not sure we'll lose anyone from this year's playing rotation... and Bruce is losing his mojo? My, we've gotten awfully spoiled awfully fast with the basketball program, haven't we? *Shakes head*

  35. Holy sheets! High school junior, rattles off 14 recruits just off the top of his head, that he’s going to actively speak to and try to convince to come to Auburn. Then he basically said that’s just the start and then we will feed off others after those 14! I’m hearing he’s the type of kid, (obviously he has been raised right) that was just already mature coming out of the womb! Very strong, outspoken, Christian kid! Could it be, we have our Tim Tebow?

  36. Freeze beating Saban for D-lineman and Dabo for QB’s? How can this be happening? War Eagle!

  37. IF he committed to the Clemson staff previously, and IF Freeze was able to earn his commitment in the face of that, I think we can put to bed the “is Freeze an elite recruiter” debate. That would be a serious, serious accomplishment, IMO. Clemson wants this kid as bad as we do, as I understand it.
