Probably not a take just yet with how many quality DBs interested in AU.

Sentimental Loof is pulling for Pritchett to AU but I got nothing but love for what you just said right here.

Most project L Cox to us. I think Derek Hall is probably the closest to committing at this time.

Get in where you fit in, D Hall!

Yeah,.  Are we done now until after the season?

No. Hall is expected in the Fall and we’KK probably add a few to. Always do.

This class is really shaping up with Colby Wooden and Zion Puckett especially on D. SDE/DT  Handy/Gordon these fit the type Coach G like that can play both positions. Buck Wooden CB Simpson/Puckett S Sheffield/Handy-Holly Transfer from Minn. LB Pappoe. I know we are still looking at possibly 1-2 more D-Line, 1 more DB, and 1-2 LB's. This is a strong D recruit group so far. On O we have done great at QB with Nix, WR with Pickens and Johnson, decent on O-Line with Osborne at OT and Jones/Clark at G/C. We need at least one more Stud O-line to have a strong O-Line class ideally at OT but a stud OG would still be a strong O-Line class and we need a solid 4 to a stud RB.

Our D coaches are recruiting well I don't know who but I think they will pull in one more D-Lineman, one more DB and one more LB. I don't think we will get a third LB as I don't think coaches would fill a spot as opposed to getting a player they really want. I hope we will get a solid RB and hopefully with a little size on him. I am hoping for a solid O-Lineman but I am not holding my breath.

We are a very solid class now the one thing that gives me hope we can be an elite class is almost every year Auburn finds a way to finish strong after many myself included think we are done. A stud LB to go with Pappoe would make this an Elite class on D a sold 4*RB and a stud O-Lineman would make this an elite class on O.  

When I say elite I am not talking about total numbers but the quality of the numbers and how they fit our needs. A DB,LB,D-Lineman, a RB and O-Lineman adds 5 players to current commits which takes us to 20 or 21 in this class as I am not sure what class Handy-Holly would go against. That still leaves room for an unexpected flip or a surprise pickup or two like Clay and gives us room for a grad transfer or early enrollee in next class

The coaches are hitting on all cylinders on the field and on the recruiting trail.  Nothing but positive vibes everywhere. (knocks on wood)   If we have the season that I think we are going to have, this recruiting class will be one for the ages.

He'll have to count in the class of 2019. 2018 is already full.

Can we say that without playing a game yet?

Lol, you've got a point. But I'm very happy with how this team is shaping up.  I'm more optimistic  than I've ever been pre-season, and I've been around for a while.   The O-line is coming together, and this looks like a really good team. I don't think there are many question marks.  But we'll find out the truth soon enough-- Sept. 1.  As always, the schedule is brutal.

Yep.  Two weeks.  I still worry about the Oline.

Haven't heard the OL doing so well but going against 1 of the top 2 or 3 DLs in the nation can do that to you.

And going against that D-line can only make them better.
