2017 4* RB Devan Barrett signs with AU (Updated)

Recommended Posts

Cam def gonna be hard to pull. He is giving us a look though. Cam would be an absolute stud in our offense imo. Cam Akers is the best rb in the country. Harris is good, but I like Akers more. Harris will be a stud in Bama offense though.

We should be at the top for both.

We are Auburn. Believe it

- A4Eisms

Or;

If Gus can't pull these RBs he should never get a raise or contract extension again and its JJ fault.

Another A4Eism.

Just as much an AU24ism now a days.

I think we are going full bore after Barrett. I think AU might take both Barrett and Akers if we got so lucky.

I know it says we're recruiting him exclusively as a RB right now and that makes sense but the few highlights of him on D show nice closing speed and a nasty streak. (cough cough) Rudy Ford (cough cough).

So your saying we would move him to WR his SR year.

Other teams are recruiting him at DB. Florida was.

This could be a nice week for us. We may pick up at least 2 4 stars, both IMO at positions of need.

3 4*'s if you include Okeke. 

Funny. Okeke was a terrific pull for Basketball. Great week for recruiting these sports. AU BBall recruiting is ranked #1 in the country right now with 3 commits in the country's top 60 players. Now that we have 1 of the football guys committed, we only need Barrett to announce for us. I really want him. He is a good one.

With the rapey vibes at UT I hope they have a season like we had last year so they can stop competing with us for players.

Their seasons have been like ours last year or worse under Butch & they still compete for players. They will always compete for players except in years where they have coaching changes & the new name is not a splash.

True but I don't seem to remember so many AU-UT battles or UT as competition for the kids we go after until Butch got there. Admittedly, I only started to keep up with recruiting (if you can even call it that) until '07-'08 or so.

 

Also this is the culmination of their "come build with us" recruiting pitch and marketing plan, if they flop I think it could take some of the air out of UT's allure right now.

There are a few every year & have been since before Butch.
