Well one of them seems to also be an elite in state basketball prospect so maybe if we offer him a spot in both...

Already have.

Anyone know how our commits moved in the rivals update? Know Trenton moved up a good bit. But not the 250

Going to post it in the rankings update thread. Give me a few minutes.

Who could be next to commit?

By Keith Niebuhr

As you may have noticed, Auburn is on a bit of a recruiting roll right now.

The 2020 class, ranked just 29th on June 1, is up to No. 7 after a monster summer that has included 12 new commitments. Even the 2021 (three commits this summer) and 2022 (one) classes have gotten into the act.

Not that long ago, Auburn didn't appear to be in a very good spot.

Now, things have changed. At nearly every position for the 2020 class, the Tigers either have met all their needs or are poised to do so. If there is one major concern, it's with the defensive line, where Auburn has but one commitment. History, though, tells us defensive line coach Rodney Garner is a strong closer. Can he do it again in this particular cycle? That remains to be seen.

On offense, Auburn may only take one more commitment. That's how well things have gone of late. Most recently, the Tigers secured a commitment from 4-star running back Tank Bigsby of Hogansville (Ga.) Callaway last week. He's the highest-ranked prospect on the Auburn commit list.

What does the future hold for the Tigers? And, who could be the next prospect to commit?

Here are some possibilities ...

KN's article talked about Auburn needed some DL signees but I saw only one or two recruits mentioned. Hopefully, there are more we don't know about.

:dunno:

Rodney is past his twilight years as an evaluator/recruiter.  I would like to see him replaced at some point in the not too distant future.

I know this is

subjective but do you have anything to offer to show he is not only into the twilight of his career but into the night time of it

I wrote this in the Carl Lawson thread earlier today:

It seems like discussing CRG with anything less than pure praise is akin to touching the 3rd rail.  That being said, I think he's starting to fall off as a recruiter.  He's pulled in some decent talent but not near enough of it and not anything approaching elite. I think he was elite for a portion of his career but I don't think anyone would be calling him elite now if he hadn't played at AU.  We could find someone better as an overall evaluator/recruiter/developer.

 

2019 Class:  No interior linemen, possibly one of the 2 commits grows into an inside linemen.  2 DL in a class is not cutting it either way. 0 WDE/Buck target

SDE - Charles Moore - ****
SDE - Jaren Handy - ****

2018 Class: Not an awful class but only 3 DL signed with only 1 WDE/Buck target.

DT - Coynis Miller - ****
DT - Daquan Newkirk (JUCO) - ****
WDE/Buck - Caleb Johnson - ***

2017 Class: Signed 2 high potential WDE/Bucks, but only 1 DT once you factor in Jackson moving to OL because he didn't possess an SEC DT skillset. In effect only 3 DL signed.

DT - Tyrone Truesdell - ***
DT - Alec Jackson (moved to OL) - ***
WDE/Buck - TD Moultry - ****
WDE - BK Bryant - ****

2016 Class: Rodney's best class with a lot of interior talent.  Again however, no pass rushing threats.

DT - Derrick Brown - *****
DT - Antwuan Jackson - ****
DT - Tashawn Manning - ***
SDE - Marlon Davidson - ****
SDE - Prince Sammons  (moved to OL) - ****
SDE - Nick Coe - ****

2015 Class: Overall a weak class, not a single contributor at DL among them.

DT - Jauntavius Johnson - ***
DT - Maurice Swain - ***
SDE - Byron Cowart - *****
SDE - Tega Wanogho - (moved to OL) - ****

2014 Class: Just an atrocious job of evaluation.  Looked great on paper but only produced 1 significant contributor in the group.

DT - Dontavious Russell - ****
DT - Devaroe Lawrence - ***
SDE - DaVonte Lambert - ****
WDE - Justin Thornton - ****
WDE - Andrew Williams - ****
WDE - Raashed Kennion - ****

2013 Class:  Not going to judge or comment as this was a transition year.

DT - Montravius Adams - *****
DT - Ben Bradley (JUCO) - ****
SDE - Elijah Daniel - ****
WDE - Carl Lawson - ****

I’ve heard this before. I’ve heard it multiple times; yet, Rodney proves people wrong every time.

 

The year when Aufamily told me that Muschamp had Lance Thompson overseeing Rodney was a gem!!

I'll accept my lumps, missed those this morning.  That being said we are still lean at DT and WDE given that we were lean 3 of the last 4 classes.

Those numbers are fairly normal, and not really lean. 4 last year, 3 the year before, 4 before that, his big year in 2016.

Most powerhouses would love to have CRG.

And just for the record, CRG’s recruiter ranking this year is still 21st nationally. He’s still keeping up his end of the deal. He was the primary recruiter in collecting commitments from Tank, Kobe Hudson, Tate, and secondary recruiter to some dude that I didn’t even know was committed to us. 😂

At least 1, maybe both will end up at DT.

For accuracy purposes you forgot Buck Jibunor for that year. Shame he wasn't ready for college life while at AU. That's on him, not CRG. Hope thingswork out for him at Troy.

Forgot DE Paul James III plus Tre Threat ended up at Buck before transferring.

Was never recruited as a DL. Recruited & signed strictly as an OT after Hand was hired.

An insider. Can’t find the post because I got bored looking. 

This is the closest I got to narrowing it down to the source:

No logic allowed here. Only slanderous conspiracy theories! Obviously WM figured out in just 2 practices that RG was a terrible coach and comepletely undercut his responsibilities.....because that is how you build a good team...cutting coaches out after 2 practices. Lmfao. Some people here are so set on their opinion that any rediculous notion they can come up with to use as validation obviously means they are right (even though it is not even slightly related). Get your heads out of your arses. It obviously stinks in there!”

2014 - Atrocious evaluation? Dontavious Russell, Andrew Williams, and Devaroe Lawerence all played significant snaps. 2 of those guys are now on NFL rosters.

2013 - You should judge or comment on it. Carl Lawson was a consensus 5* as well as Montravious Adams and they're both NFL starters/contributors now. Elijah Daniel was a HUGE get that just didn't get his act together off the field.

Wasn't a consensus 5*. He was a composite 5*. Scout had him rated 108 in the nation & a 4*. Even though scout & their ratings don't exist anymore their effects on the players in past classes does & affects composite scores.

For someone who is consistently posting in the recruiting forum, your lack of knowledge on the subject is really impressive. Congrats on dumbest post of the day.
