  7. Auburn QB Zach Calzada to undergo surgery, miss remainder of season 13 minutes ago The availability of experience in Auburn's quarterback room has dwindled significantly this week. Sources close to the situation informed Auburn Undercover on Thursday that reserve quarterback Zach Calzada will undergo surgery later this month on his non-throwing shoulder and is expected to miss the remainder of the 2022 season. The Texas A&M transfer will seek a medical redshirt. Justin Hokanson of Auburn Live first reported the news. After starting 10 games at Texas A&M last year, Calzada transferred to Auburn in January, though he sat out all of spring practice while recovering from a shoulder issue. He was beaten out in preseason camp by T.J. Finley for the starting job, and Oregon transfer Robby Ashford for the No. 2 spot. Calzada did not appear in Auburn's first three games of the season. On Tuesday, Auburn Undercover reported that Finley will miss at least Saturday's game against Missouri with a shoulder injury of his own, suffered against Penn State. Ashford is expected to start, and sources told Auburn Undercover this week that true freshman Holden Geriner could also see some playing time. 7COMMENTS When asked at his Monday press conference Monday whether Calzada is healthy enough to play and be available against Missouri, Harsin first quipped with "you know something I don't?" before declaring the transfer quarterback and former SEC West starter is "competing like everybody else." Ashford led Auburn on its only touchdown drive in the fourth quarter in a 41-12 loss to Penn State, and is completing 51.7 percent of his passes on the year, with one touchdown and two picks. He's also given the Tigers a dual-threat element in the ground game, currently second on the team with 158 yards

  10. Auburn baseball boasts No. 6 recruiting class according to Baseball America Justin Hokanson Photo by AU Athletics AUBURN – Auburn baseball, which is coming off its second trip to the College World Series in three seasons, has the nation’s No. 6 recruiting class, according to Baseball America. The No. 6 ranking is the fifth highest in program history, trailing only the No. 4 ranked class from 2017 and No. 5 classes from 1996, 2007 and 2016. Thompson has now had his hand in four of Auburn’s top five recruiting classes and has secured 15 top-10 recruiting classes since 2003. Highlighting the class are four top-100 recruits according to Perfect Game, trailing only LSU (six) for the most top-100 recruits to make it to campus. Consisting of 24 newcomers, including 14 high schoolers, six junior college transfers and four four-year transfers, Auburn’s complete class is listed below.

  11. Auburn expected to be without starting QB vs. Missouri 14 minutes ago AUBURN, Alabama—On Monday we mentioned the likelihood that Auburn starting quarterback T.J. Finley would miss the Missouri game this week and on Tuesday that was confirmed with sources telling Auburn247 that Finley could be out several weeks while dealing with a sprained throwing shoulder suffered in the loss to Penn State. Auburn's starter the first three games of the 2022 season, Finley is completing 62 percent of his passes for 431 yards and one touchdown with four interceptions this season. On Monday, Auburn's Bryan Harsin was asked about Finley's role as the starter for the Tigers heading into the Missouri game. "We'll see," he said. "Like I said, we'll let guys compete this week. It's Monday. We haven't decided what we're going to do. Through the week of practice it'll be decided. We'll let guys compete, and we'll put the best guys out there on Saturday to go play." 7COMMENTS Without him available, Auburn is expected to turn to sophomore transfer Robby Ashford against Missouri. Coming to Auburn from Oregon, Ashford has received his first career action this season and has thrown for 245 yards and one touchdown with two interceptions while completing 52 percent of his passes. Also a weapon on the ground, Ashford is second on the team with 158 rushing yards and is averaging 6.6 yards per carry. That makes Zach Calzada and true freshman Holden Geriner the next guys up for the Tigers behind Ashford. Yet to see action this season after transferring from Texas A&M, Calzada started 10 games for the Aggies a season ago. Both Calzada and Geriner will get reps this week to prepare for Saturday.
  12. Bruce Pearl's thoughts on Auburn's 'challenging' SEC schedule 107 minutes ago OPELIKA, Alabama — Auburn’s SEC schedule is nothing short of loaded. No, not that SEC schedule. Before the conference announces the full SEC slates Tuesday evening for the 2023 football season, Bruce Pearl shared some of his reactions to what was unveiled three months ago: Auburn basketball’s path to defending its SEC regular-season title from last season. It’s another doozy of a schedule for Pearl’s program, against a league that’s improved mightily in recent years in both coaching and talent. “Mike Burgomaster, he might need to be looking for work after this season,” Pearl joked about his assistant coach and head of scheduling during a conversation with a few reporters Monday before his Bruce, Barkley & Basketball golf fundraiser in Opelika. But it starts with strong tests in nonconference play, where Auburn has seven home games between November and December but also makes a Pac-12 road trip to play USC and Washington. In this year’s Big 12/SEC Challenge, Auburn drew West Virginia on the road. “At USC, at Washington, at West Virginia — you tell me one school in the league that plays three Power Five road games,” Pearl said. “And, then Memphis, at a neutral site. And St. Louis coming in here.” Last year, Auburn powered through its nonconference slate, with only one loss to UConn, en route to a 22-1 start on the year that was parlayed into the first No. 1 ranking in the polls in program history. Led by a pair of first-round picks in Jabari Smith and Walker Kessler, Auburn went 15-3 in league play and won its second regular-season SEC crown under Pearl and earned a No. 2 seed in the NCAA tournament. After consecutive games at USC and Washington in mid-December, Auburn opens SEC play at home against Florida — which will serve as a homecoming for former Auburn assistant Todd Golden, who now coaches the Gators and boasts who Pearl believes could be the best big man in the conference: Colin Castleton. “Any time we play Florida with Todd Golden as a coach, it's not gonna be a game I'm gonna look forward to,” Pearl said. “There's a lot of other guys I'd rather beat more than I would rather try to beat him. Because he's part of my family. And he's really good. And so we'll get that game out of the way. We've got to do a better job against Florida. That's not one of the teams we've got a great record against. And they've got the best inside player.” In its first Saturday game of the SEC season, Auburn hosts what is projected to be a top-5 Arkansas team Jan. 7. The standard opponents are there — two games against Alabama, Georgia and Ole Miss — with the Tigers also drawing double matchups with Texas A&M and Tennessee — in back-to-back games, on the road, no less. “As far as the league schedule, catching Texas A&M and Tennessee twice — both of those teams will be picked in the top five or six of our league, Tennessee in the top four, Texas A&M in the top five or six, I would expect,” Pearl said. “So the league is going to be challenging.” There should be some breaks, though, especially considering the league is breaking in six new head coaches this season: (five if you don’t count Mike White at UGA): Chris Jans (Mississippi State), Dennis Gates (Missouri), Matt McMahon (LSU) and Lamont Paris (South Carolina). But the last week of the regular season is the kicker: Auburn heads to Kentucky on the last Saturday of February, travels to Tuscaloosa in the midweek game, then closes the season at home against Tennessee. “The way the schedule ends, it's daunting,” Pearl said. “But look, that's the league we live in, man. It's the business we've chosen. Got to play them sometime.” Auburn opens the season in less than 50 days, tipping off Nov. 7 at home against George Mason.
  13. Auburn Target Tracker: Week 5 ByCHRISTIAN CLEMENTE 14 hours ago Share0 Comments Every week Auburn247 will update you on the performances of Auburn's commits and how they performed in their high school games. But we're also going to update you on notable performances from some of Auburn's top 2023, 2024 and 2025 targets. This list of recruits will vary week to week based on performances and availability of stats. Air Noland — 2024 QB A name to continue to track in 2024, the Langston Hughes (Ga.) quarterback completed 11-of-14 passes for 166 yards and five touchdowns in a 65-0 win. Noland's season stats: 49-of-69 (71% completion percentage), 1,013 yards, 17 TDs | 13 carries, 50 yards, 1 TD | 4-0 Jelani Thurman — TE One of Noland's five touchdowns went to the Ohio State tight end commit, who caught two passes for 15 yards and a touchdown. Thurman visited for the last two Auburn games. On the year Thurman has eight receptions for 131 yards and four touchdowns Ryan Williams — 2025 WR Offered by Auburn on Monday, the Auburn legacy put up another big game for Saraland this week. He caught four passes for 173 yards and three touchdowns in the 50-0 win. J'Marion Burnette — 2024 RB Before visiting for the Penn State game, Burnette was busy putting up another big game on Friday night with nine carries for 135 yards and three touchdowns. Andalusia is 5-0 on the season. Joshua Horton — DT It was an eight-tackle performance for the North Carolina commit at Langston Hughes on Friday night. Horton also had a tackle-for-loss in the big win. Khai Prean — WR Committed to LSU but still an Auburn target, the receiver caught four passes for 26 yards and a touchdown. He took one carry for 12 yards, too. Tony Mitchell — S The Alabama defensive back commit at Thompson (Ala.) put up four tackles in the 48-3 win. Committed to Alabama, Mitchell visited Auburn for the San Jose State game and visited Texas A&M for the Miami game. Kaleb Harris — 2024 S One of the other talented defensive backs at Thompson, Harris also had four tackles in the win, along with a pass deflection. Harris has visited Auburn for the past two games. Cameron Coleman — 2024 WR The junior receiver at Central-Phenix City caught four passes for 71 yards and two touchdowns in a 49-16 win over Jefferson Davis.
  14. Future Tiger Tracker: Huge game for Hart 23 hours ago It was a little bit of a quiet week for some of Auburn's commits, but it was a massive game for one commit, putting up a huge performance in a rivalry game. Auburn247 is keeping up with all of Auburn's commits this season, tracking how they perform each week and their stats for the season. Follow the future and see how Auburn's commits performed this week: JC Hart — CB It was a historic Friday night for Hart and Loachapoka (Ala.). For Loachapoka, its 50-14 win over Notasulga (Ala.) snapped an eight-game losing streak in the Battle of Highway 14 as the Indians are up to 5-0 now. For Hart, he put up 94 receiving yards, two receiving touchdowns, a 46-yard punt return on defense and an interception. Another huge all-around performance from the cornerback commit. Hart and Loachapoka are on a bye week this Friday and play at Calhoun on Sept. 30. Loachapoka Indians: 5-0 Jeremiah Cobb — RB Another blowout win, another day in the office for Cobb. Montgomery Catholic (Ala.) took down Geneva (Ala.) 62-0 on Friday night. Cobb took 10 carries for 179 yards (17.9 YPC) and two touchdowns. He caught one pass for three yards. Next up is a game at Pike Liberal Arts (Ala.). Season stats: 68 carries, 849 yards, 15 TDs (12.5 YPC), 9 receptions, 170 yards, 4 TDs Daquayvious Sorey — WR Auburn's receiver commit out of Chipley (Fla.) put together another big game on Friday night in a 40-0 win over Vernon (Fla.). Sorey caught seven passes for 101 yards and two touchdowns, with three tackles on defense playing safety. Sorey and Chipley play at Freeport (Fla.) this Friday. Season stats: 23 receptions, 426 yards, 6 TDs | 4 carries, 68 yards | 6 tackles Chipley Tigers: 4-0 Ashley Williams — edge Zachary (La.) dropped its first game of the season in a 24-20 loss to St. Augustine (La.) on Friday, but Williams still managed to put up a productive game with four tackles and 2.5 sacks. Williams is on a bye week and his next game is on Sept. 30 at Winona (Ms.). Season stats: 11 tackles, 4 TFL, 3.5 sacks Zachary Broncos: 2-1 Jamarrion Harkless — DT Auburn's newest commit moved to 5-0 at Frederick Douglass (Ky.) on Friday night with a big 54-0 win. Harkless' stats are not available from the game. Next up for Harkless is a game at Scott County (Ky.). Frederick Douglass Broncos: 5-0 Terrance Love — S Auburn's safety commit didn't have to get involved much defensively in a 65-0 win over New Manchester. Love didn't record a defensive stat, but did catch a 2-pt conversion. Langston Hughes plays at Douglas County this Friday. Langston Hughes Panthers: 4-0 Bradyn Joiner — IOL Auburn High marched to a 58-7 win over Lee last Thursday. Auburn High is now ranked No. 1 in the state of Alabama. Next up on is a home game against Ramsay (Ala.) on Friday. Auburn High Tigers: 5-0 Wilky Denaud — DL Prior to his official visit Denaud and John Carroll Catholic marched to a 35-3 win over South Fork (Fla.). Denaud's stats have not been shared for the game. John Carroll Catholic Rams: 3-0 Adam Hopkins — WR Hopkins and Thomas County Central were on bye week this Friday, which comes at an opportune time for the receiver commit nursing a shoulder injury. Thomas County Central Yellow Jackets: 4-0 A'Mon Lane — 2024 CB In a 32-6 win over Lincoln (Ala.) on Friday, Lane and Moody moved to 5-0 on the season, the best start in Moody school history. Lane's stats have not been shared from the game. The Blue Devils play at Shelby County (Ala.) on Sept. 23. Moody Blue Devils: 5-0 Adrian Posse — 2024 QB 3COMMENTS Auburn's quarterback commit was unable to play this week with ongoing eligibility concerns, but his father told Auburn247 after the Penn State game he should be cleared up to play in this weeks gamne.
  15. Offensive lineman Gernorris Wilson commits to Auburn 11 minutes ago Auburn wasn't going to let him leave without a commitment again. 3-star offensive lineman Gernorris Wilsonannounced his commitment to Auburn on Monday, choosing the Tigers over North Carolina. After nearly committing to Auburn during his visit for Big Cat Weekend, he pulls the trigger just after his official visit to the Plains. "The family environment," Wilson said was the reason he chose Auburn. "It’s just different. There’s no place really like it. I can’t really pinpoint it, it’s just I’ve been around it and this is where I want to be." The commitment from Wilson, while just a 3-star, is a crucial one for Auburn. It comes at a major position of need in the offensive line, where Auburn is looking to add — at a minimum — four high schoolers. Now, Auburn has two with Wilson joining 4-star center Bradyn Joiner. While the 247Sports Composite has Wilson as the No. 1,145 player, No. 86 interior offensive lineman and No. 162 player in the state of Florida, Auburn had Wilson evaluated much, much higher. Part of that is because of his versatility. At 6-foot-5, 285 pounds, Wilson is being recruited as one of Auburn's "swing" players along the offensive line. Auburn has told Wilson he could play right tackle or play guard, which would be an important addition for a team lacking both tackles and guard along the offensive line moving forward. Previously playing at Lake Gibson before transferring to powerhouse Lakeland for his senior season, Wilson's first visit to Auburn came back in June. It was then, when Auburn's staff got eyes on him, he received an offer. And then he returned for Big Cat Weekend with his family, which helped vault Auburn to the top of his recruitment. Wilson has been recruited by offensive line analyst Joe Bernardi heavily, with offensive line coach Will Friend also involved in the recruitment. "I love them, they seem like real down-to-earth people," Wilson said. "I actually spent time with them and they’re just real, that’s the best way I can put it." 7COMMENTS The commitment is the second one Auburn picked up in as many days, as Wilson and 3-star defensive tackle Jamarrion Harklessjoin the class. Auburn's class is now up to 10 commitments, with Joiner, Jeremiah Cobb, Daquayvious Sorey, Wilky Denaud, Terrance Love, Adam Hopkins, Ashley Williams and JC Hart also committed.
  16. AU commit: 'We’re the people' knows the game against Penn State was anything but pretty. He also knows he has a chance to make a difference at Auburn. The Auburn safety commit was in town for his official visit and did more than just take in the visit for himself. He's working to make the Tigers' 2023 class better, speaking with several big-time visitors this weekend. "All the guys that come down here, I’m gonna be pretty much at every home game, talking to the biggest recruits, to get them here," Love said, "Because as you see, we need guys to come in and change this thing." Terrance Love took an official visit to Auburn this weekend. (Caleb Jones | AuburnSports.com) His message? Simple. "I tell them ‘We’re the people who can come in and change this place," Love said. "Auburn is already gonna be Auburn." Outside of recruiting others to join him at Auburn, Love spent his weekend with several of his close friends at Langston Hughes, many of which are being recruited by Auburn. "I feel like bringing my good friends and teammates down here with me, it gives them an opportunity to see what it’s like," Love said. "If they have the chance to come here with me, I feel like that will be a great thing to do since I have already a strong bond with those guys." 6'3" | 200 lbs | S | 2023 Caleb Wooden served as Love's player-host on his official visit, as he bonded with the team, had dinner, talked with the coaches and watched Auburn play Penn State. "I mean, even though they didn’t come out on top, I still had a great weekend overall," Love said. Auburn's loss does not effect its standing with Love. He's firm in his commitment to the Tigers, because it goes deeper than football. "A lot of people ask me how they think I’m gonna de-commit because they lost this game big," Love said. "I love Auburn besides football. Everything else about this place. They love me — Auburn loves me back."
