Top Flips Targets

Recommended Posts

I am still disappointed, frustrated, and disgusted over the Booth commitment to Clemson. I absolutely hate the fact that Auburn gets SO close to landing these big time commits only to come in a close second.

BUT, I’m also reminded that it is only the beginning of August. I believe that our coaches have to become even more relentless on the recruiting trail. Winning on the field and making the playoffs can change the outcome of this class. So here’s my top ten (most important & most likely) guys that we need to flip by December.

1. Wanya Morris (desperately need an elite tackle)

2. Andrew Booth (it was SO close, Pappoe better stay in his ear)

3. Jadon Haselwood (game changer)

4. Trezmen Marshall (need a thumper)

5. Nathan Pickering (best DL in Mississippi)

6. Charles Moore (Handy needs to keep working him)

7. Justin Eboigbe (sickening to see an AU fan go to UAT)

8. Christian Williams (need to get back into Mobile)

9. Maurice Hampton (rumored early interest; need Woodson to work those Memphis connections once LSU collapses)

10. Donte Starks (coaches better keep pursuing once LSU collapses)

Three, four, and Ten are the only possibilities. Almost certain nine is not a target. Surprised you didn’t mention Georgia cornerback Jalen Perry and Florida linebacker Tyron Hopper. Both are much more flipable than seven guys on the above list and/are high targets for Auburn.  Lastly  The only ones we need to flip if we could are Morris and possibly Moore But neither one is happening so yeah.

The DT from UT should be on the list. He’s flippable, and he’s a guy Coach G wants.

I would be giddy with a Haselwood and Marshall flip and call it a day.  

I say stay on these recruits as much as necessary, and see if you might get lucky.  As close as Wanya was, (and Booth, and a few others) something could happen there between now and Dec.  You just never know. 

I would take a tri-fecta flip of uga kids JH, TM, and Perry.  That would be awesome!

Only problem with flipping is it works both ways. Clark was thought to be trying to work on Morris for AU, now it looks more likely Morris helps flip Clark to Tenn.
A few of our more highly rated commits are under immense pressure to flip to other schools as well.

Do you base that on anything other than day dreams? I mean, I hope you are right but it seems very, very unlikely.

I wonder if Gus and his staff might try to flip some Ohio State recruits to Auburn.

I did read a article that indicated we were interested in a 4 star RB commit to Ohio St but I can’t remember his name.

I vote we go after the center.   He's from Buford HS.    Hold on, I don't really get a vote.  You know what I mean.

Not only a good pick up at running back with his size but a great name to go with Smoke Monday.

Auburn wasn’t a factor for him before he committed to Ohio state. It would still be a longshot  for Auburn to became a factor now.

Why not what? I never said or implied not going for it. I'm just saying AU would be working from way behind other schools.
