What more could you ask for than OP recruiting all our top D targets and BN recruiting all our top O targets, while all at the same event.

Which of these do you think we have the best chance of signing?  Just names and no details to make it simple and efficient.

 

Thanks & WDE!

Boobie is the only 1 I feel good about right now. Next would be Dunmore.

Are we making any attempt with Diabate?  I hate to see players coming out of Auburn HS to go anywhere except Auburn.

I’ll add that it’s likely just not happening though. At least that has been the word for most of the cycle.

 Yes but we trail big. Offering so late has really hurt our chances.

I wanted to get away from home at that age. Didn't you? I think kids wanting to get out and on their own is our biggest problem with Auburn High players and there's nothing we can do about that.

I agree with you, but I still hate to see it happen. It seems like it has been a while since a player out of Auburn HS has played for Auburn.

You know a guy is considered a leader and an elite talent when all the other recruits follow his every move. Pickens is one of these guys this year. It does not matter if the services make him a 5 star. All the recruits know he is elite!

And from the headline of Keith’s latest article, it sounds like he’s openly recruiting for us at these events. Always makes you feel better about a recruit/commit.

Dude’s a straight baller.  Only concern is top end speed.  Size, hands, body control all scream 5 star.  Either way we have a fine WR headed our way

Soo I found out last night the NFL youtube channel is streaming the events live, Looks like they take the strams down after the events are over. I will be on the look out for when coverage starts today including 7 on 7 play.

A couple of Auburn centered themes in this article...

 

Quote

 

Five things we learned at The Opening, day 1

George Pickens and Theo Wease Jr. stood out as receivers

Pickens, a 6-4, 188-pound senior wide receiver from Hoover, Ala., will be a matchup nightmare for teams this season and in college. Last season, he had 46 catches for 735 yards and five touchdowns, including two TD catches to help the Bucs win the 7A state title.

He’s big and physical enough to get separation from defensive backs, but most notably, he has flypaper hands. Though he has committed to Auburn, he’s still planning on making official visits to other schools.

He also had a flashy one-handed grab in the end zone Saturday.

“That’s no suprise,” said Pinson Valley (Pinson, Ala.) quarterback Bo Nix, who is an Auburn commit. “I’ve seem him do that in games before.”

Stability the key for Auburn commit Bo Nix

Nix is considered a dual-threat quarterback, but he really showed off his arm Saturday with a quick and accurate release. Last season, he led Pinson Valley (Pinson, Ala.) to a 15-0 record and a 5A state title while completing 196-of-307 passes for 2,872 yards and 35 touchdowns. The Auburn commit is coached by his father, former Auburn quarterback Patrick Nix.

“I’m used to going through progressions because my dad is my coach and we have a lot of college routes and NFL-based routes in our offense,” Nix said. “It’s extremely comfortable always having the same coach. A lot of times quarterbacks struggle when they have different coordinators. He’ll even let me give an opinion and usually he does a good job of allowing me to be that type of quarterback.”

So, it sounds like the passing offense will be a step back for Bo when he arrives at Auburn.

Points for the joke and the meme. 

Pace yourself, though. It's only Monday morning. We're going to need you all week.
