  1. 2018 3* JuCo CB Benjie Franklin

    Which seems all the more reason to take a JUCO/grad transfer kid.
  2. 2018 3* JuCo CB Benjie Franklin

    We have to have some type of veteran experience at CB, especially if Carlton leaves. Right now, it's Jamel Dean and Javaris Davis, assuming Carlton leaves. Peters is probably the next guy on the list, but he might play Nickel, depending on what we do at S, which is also scary thin. There's a whole lot of unknown behind the two starting CBs right now.

    Javaris Davis is 5' 10" 185 lbs. I think in our S&C program he can put on 10-12 lbs and be at a pretty good weight.
  4. 2018 NR P Arryn Siposs Commits to AU!!!

    I'm just worried about having room for him period. He'd be a game-changer at punter, but he has to get cleared, which apparently isn't the easiest thing in the world with all the paperwork required, and we have to have a spot for him. A guy who can kick with both the hang time and distance he offers would be a significant weapon.

    That makes sense. I couldn't remember if the GTs were handled differently. Who is the 8th? I have: Joey Gatewood Asa Martin Shedrick Jackson Josh Marsh Dequan Newkirk Jamien Sherwood Christian Tutt
  6. 2018 Recruiting thread (Updated 12/12/17)

    Anybody have an idea of how may we can take in this class with the early enrollees? By my count, we will have 17 open scholarships with seniors leaving and the two available from last year. We have a few players that will leave for the draft, and I believe we have 7 players planning on enrolling early.
  7. SECCG thoughts on what to expect

    Their starting group of LBs is among the best in the country. Roquan Smith, Lorenzo Carter, Davin Bellamy, Natrez Partick. That is a fantastic group of LBs. I'd say, at the very least, they're comparable to our group.
  8. Kerryon Johnson updates

    I'm much less comfortable this time around. I know we dominated them last time, but I think that's part of my concern. I just don't see it being that easy. Everything worked well for us, especially defensively, and it's hard for me to see it working that well again and UGA having no answers or ability to muster any run game. I'm not saying they're going to run through us or dominate the game, but I don't expect this game to look like the game three weeks ago. I think UGA will be more successful on both sides of the ball, and I think we will be in for a fight. I still think we're the better team because we're the better OL and DL, and I don't think the gap between these two teams is as wide as it looked like 3 weeks ago. Add in KJ's injury possibly limiting his effectiveness, the revenge factor for UGA, the neutral field, the emotional roller coaster we've been on for a month now. All of it feels like this will be a tough, tough game.
  9. Wiley and Purifoy

    I don't think they see anything necessarily, but I don't think they will do anything to help the basketball program until the coaches cooperate with them. I'm not sure why they're standing so firm on this, but they are.
  10. Wiley and Purifoy

    From what I was told, Wiley has been cleared to be eligible immediately by everyone but Auburn's compliance department. IMO the reasons why compliance hasn't cleared him are unclear and vary depending on which side the info comes from. It seems, from my vantage point, that he's being used as a pawn in the fight between Leath/compliance/lawyers vs Bruce and staff. When I heard that info, I assumed Wiley would be reinstated fairly quickly by Auburn regardless of Bruce's situation, but that hasn't been the case. And it doesn't seem like it will happen until Bruce's situation is resolved. So there's no telling when he will be eligible to play.
  11. Kerryon Johnson updates

    I had heard he was medically cleared last Friday.
  12. Pearl's Job in Jeopardy

    I believe his family is impacted by another issue within the athletic department.
  13. Wiley and Purifoy

    I feel much less confident about this now than I did earlier this week.
  14. Pearl's Job in Jeopardy

    I don't think EJ Montgomery is or will consider coming to Auburn. His situation is much deeper than Person recruiting him.
  15. Pearl's Job in Jeopardy

    I think the law firm that is the de facto AD right now has quite a bit to do with this as well. As much as I'd like to see cooler heads prevail, I don't see a peaceful resolution to this situation.
