5 players to watch

4-star 2019 QB Bo Nix, Pinson Valley (Ala.)

The performance Bo Nix put on in the third round to beat the Asa Martin-led Auburn squad was one of the best of the Alabama high school season. He tossed 7 touchdown passes in a come-from-behind victory. Pinson Valley is undefeated, and the top quarterback prospect in the state for the 2019 class is a big reason why. Nix has been a hot commodity in recruiting for the Class of 2019. Auburn is the heavy favorite because of his legacy connection, but programs such as Clemson, Georgia, LSU and Florida State are interested.

4-star CB Jalyn Armour-Davis, St. Paul’s Episcopal (Ala.)

Jalyn Armour-Davis has been one of the top college prospects in the state since his freshman year of high school. Auburn was the first program to show interest, but the Tigers weren’t close to being the last. Eventually, Alabama swooped in with a major need at cornerback, which sealed the deal for the Crimson Tide. Armour-Davis is the No. 115-ranked overall prospect in the country, so it’s no wonder his high school team will compete for a state title this week.

3-star RB Kavosiey Smoke, Wetumpka (Ala.)

Here is one of the biggest risers in Alabama during the Class of 2018. Kavosiey Smoke is ranked just inside the top 700 prospects nationally for the 2018 class. He has been a visitor at the two big in-state programs — Auburn and Alabama — this season, but neither program has offered. That’s allowed several out-of-state Power 5 schools to enter Alabama to check out the 6-foot, 210-pound running back. Smoke holds offers from Missouri, South Carolina, Georgia Tech, Connecticut and Virginia Tech.

4-star 2019 safety Trikweze Bridges, Lanett (Ala.)

Trikweze Bridges will undoubtedly be one of the most fought-after prospects in the 2019 class. He’s a top-250 player who stands 6-foot-3 and 175 pounds. Bridges already holds offers from Alabama, Florida, Louisville and Georgia Tech. He will likely pick up an offer from Auburn at some point, if he hasn’t already just elect not to announce it publicly. Bridges has attended multiple Auburn games this fall, so the two sides are mutually one each other’s radar. Alabama secondary coach is recruiting Bridges heavily, as well.

4-star 2019 WR George Pickens & 3-star 2018 WR Shedrick Jackson, Hoover (Ala.)

Here’s a 2-for-1 special for Auburn fans to check out in Tuscaloosa on Wednesday night. Jackson and Pickens are both committed to the Tigers and are in line to lead Hoover to yet another state championship. Hoover topped McGill-Toolen in last year’s state title in Jordan-Hare Stadium. Jackson and Pickens will play a big role in the repeat this time around. Jackson plans to enroll at Auburn in January. Pickens is the lone piece in Auburn’s 2019 class so far.

I'm afraid we are going to freeze our Chestnuts off tonight. Should be a good game. GP is the real deal. He has overshadowed SJ a little but they are a great 1-2 combination. Hard to defend both of them.

48-20.  Good game by both future Tigers.  Hoover is just a machine.  More quality players and better coaching then any team in the state and very few in the country could rival them.  

Congrats to my long time friend.  Coach Josh Niblett.

Auburn commits star in Hoover's championship game win

Two Auburn commits are now state champions -- and each came up big.

It was a big night for Hoover (Ala.) -- and two of the program's top players.

Hoover won the Class 7A state championship 48-20 over Mobile (Ala.) McGill-Toolen on Wednesday night in Tuscaloosa. And in that game, Auburn receiver commits Shedrick Jackson and George Pickens went off.

Jackson, a 3-star senior, had six catches for 160 yards and two touchdowns. Pickens, a 4-star 2019 recruit, caught two passes -- both touchdowns -- for 61 yards.

One of Jackson's touchdowns covered 70 yards. One of Pickens' went for 54.

Worth noting: Auburn coach Gus Malzahn, offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey and receivers coach Kodi Burns were on hand to watch.

"It’s unreal," Jackson told AuburnUndercover.com on Thursday morning. "It was just an incredible feeling."

Here are highlights of the game from Al.com:

That St Paul's v Briarwood game was what a state championship game should be.  Both defenses came up big in key situations. St. Paul, after being behind for almost 3 quarters, converts on a 3rd down and 32 yards to go to set up a go ahead TD with under 2 minutes left in the game.  Briarwood moved the ball across the 50 but was unable to get much farther. St Paul's holds on to win 17-14.

I know there are probably fans of both schools on here but was really hoping both teams could lose.

My opinions have to do with the qualification of fair play in the AHSAA.  If you are a “private” school (briarwood and St Paul) you can recruit to your school.  However you have to play up 2 divisions in class.  Everyone knows In sports especially in high school if you go out and get a very talented running back and QB you can win on those 2 players alone.  Same goes for a pitcher in baseball or a single player in basketball.  

If you want to recruit, play in a completely separate division is my opinion. 

I was recruited by Dr. Kinard in the 80s to go to Briarwood on a full scholarship to play baseball.  They were same class and same Area as my high school.  However we won 2 state championships during my days the tactics behind it were not “fair play”.  No way could my parents afford the tuition to Briarwood and I wanted to stay with my friends and family at my high school.  I declined but would have been a huge asset to their baseball and football teams.
