4-star DB Cam'Ron Kelly commits to Auburn

By Keith Niebuhr
 

Auburn has been on a serious recruiting roll of late and things only got better Wednesday when the Tigers landed one of the top recruits in the mid-Atlantic.

Four-star defensive back Cam'Ron Kelly of Chesapeake (Va.) Oscar Smith has committed to Auburn over programs such as Oklahoma, Penn State and Virginia Tech. He made his announcement via Twitter.

The 6-feet-1, 190-pound Kelly is the No. 13 athlete and No. 177 overall recruit nationally in the industry generated 247Sports Composite. Kelly said in a recent interview the Tigers want him at cornerback. That said, he has the body and is versatile enough to play just about anywhere in the secondary.

For Auburn, he becomes the third 2019 commitment in the past seven days. Defensive end Colby Wooden and cornerback Zion Puckett both committed to the Tigers late last week. 

Kelly will be a mid-year enrollee.

Kelly, a former Virginia Tech commit, visited Auburn for the first time in late July. He plans to return this fall for an official visit.

“It’s a very special place," Kelly said. " love the coaches. I love everything about it. ... if you want to come win a Jim Thorpe Award, this is the place to be. You go to the ACC and you can have the same stats as a dude from Auburn and you’re up in the running against an SEC West team, you already know where the award is going.”

Cornerbacks coach Marcus Woodson is Kelly's primary recruiter.

Kelly is commitment No. 16 for the Tigers, who moved up three spots to No. 8 in the 247Sports recruiting team rankings with his pledge. This is the highest Auburn has been ranked during the 2019 recruiting cycle and the Tigers still have approximately seven or eight spots left to fill.

For Auburn, Kelly becomes the fourth commitment who could play in the secondary. He joins Puckett and Jaylin Simpson, both 4-star corners, along with 4-star athlete Jashawn Sheffield, in the class.

Here’s a look at where things stand with the 2019 class …

-Quarterback: With 4-star recruit Bo Nix of Pinson Valley (Ala.) on board, the Tigers probably are done at this position.

-Running back: Auburn has none committed and could take one or two. Noah Cain of Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy is believed to be the top target. The Tigers are a contender, along with LSU and Texas. He plans to officially visit Auburn in the fall.

-Tight end: With two on board -- Luke Deal and Tyler Fromm -- the Tigers are done.

-Receiver: With George Pickens and Ja'Varrius Johnson committed, Auburn still could add one or two more receivers to the class but could stick with just those two.

-Offensive line: Auburn has Keiondre Jones, Justin Osborne and Jakai Clark committed, leaving one or two spots to fill.

-Defensive line: Wooden, Jaren Handy and Jamond Gordon are the three commits. The Tigers could add two or three more linemen. Defensive tackle LeDarrius Cox, a Tennessee commit from Mobile (Ala.), and buck linebacker/end Derick Hall of Mississippi might be the two closest to joining the class.

-Linebacker: With 5-star Owen Pappoe in the class, the Tigers would like to add two more backers.

-Defensive back: Auburn has three committed and could add another one to the class.

-Athlete: Jashawn Sheffield could end up at receiver or defensive back.

War Eagle and welcome aboard.

Another great pickup the D-backs are nasty. The article did not mention the proven transfer from Minnesota as a DB also. Lets get two more D-Lineman and at least one more LB and we are set on D in this class.

Looks like Goober got him another! He and Woodson are a great combo.

Most recruiting reporters don't realize transfers when they go on scholly count just like high school enrollies on the yearly 25 new enrollie limit.

Get. That. Ball. Back. GetThatBallBack! Good chance we see a noticeable uptick in interceptions. We could also take some chances and get exposed. But his guys at Memphis went after the ball and got it.

Yeah. Brown is a great coach. On the safety end of things which is what Brown is coaching exclusively now, he is an easy sell for a talented recruiter like Woodson.

Fluid hips. Great backpedal. Not fond of contact, but neither was Deion Sanders.

It feels like a week ago we were in meltdown mode over the secondary recruiting class!

Now we can breathe...

But about those RB and OL...
