4-star DE visits Auburn, will return for official visit

AUBURN | Four-star defensive end Jay Hardy attended his first game at Auburn on Saturday.

Hardy, the No. 4 overall recruit in Tennessee, was one of several recruits to witness the Tigers’ 56-23 blowout of Mississippi State.

“It was great. The atmosphere was crazy,” Hardy said. “I liked it a lot. I like how the crowd was loud and the players and the coaches were into the game, too.

“I also liked Tiger Walk, the eagle flying and what the students did with the other team’s ball when they kicked a field goal … they threw it out of the stadium.”

Hardy, from McCallie School in Chattanooga, spoke with Gus Malzahn and defensive line coach Rodney Garner during the unofficial visit.

“I like Coach Malzahn and I like Coach Garner a lot,” Hardy said. “Coach Garner really knows what he’s doing. You can tell just from looking at the d-line this year and the ones he’s had in the past.”

Garner is a big reason Hardy has high interest in Auburn. He’s a big reason Hardy plans to return to Auburn for an official visit in December. It would be Hardy’s third visit to Auburn – he also visited last summer.

“I like Auburn a lot,” Hardy said. “I like the campus, the atmosphere and the coaches.”

Hardy took an official visit to Georgia Tech in September. He said Auburn, Tennessee, Florida and Georgia also will receive an official visit. The five schools make up his top group.

“I like Auburn, Georgia Tech, Tennessee, Florida and Georgia a lot right now,” Hardy said. “It’s between them. I already have taken (an official visit) to Georgia Tech and I might take one more of my official visits during the season and then the rest in December.”

Hardy was on crutches during his Auburn visit as he recovers from a sprain MCL in his knee. He sustained the injury during a vicious illegal hit last Friday night in a game against West Forsyth (Ga.). Hardy hopes to return to action later this season.

“I’m doing a lot better now,” Hardy said. “They say I’ll probably be out at least three weeks.”

Hardy, who is ranked the No. 7 strongside end and No. 137 in the Rivals250, will graduate high school in the spring.

If we can’t beat UTk for this kid I’ll have a problem. Think Garner pulls this one.

This guy is a good fit for Garner's style of moving people from the outside in and vice versa. At 290 lbs he can go wherever he wants to go! :)

Yup! And he's 290 in high school without our strength/conditioning/nutrition

That’s easy. Just put on their game tapes.

That was my thought. Pretty much just play some of theirs and then play some of ours and then hit 'em with a little

Play the video of their player saying "we shoot officers where I'm from" and the quote of their coach grilling a police officer saying his kids wouldn't have been arrested at his previous coaching stops. That place is a dumpster fire in a tailspin.

That is some professional mixed-metaphoring. Nice work, sir 🍻!

Hardy told 247 he plans to come to the 2 big games in November plus his OV in December. Definitely a positive there.

Yeah that is a positive. Does he have a narrowed down list? If he’s already been to 1 game and he plans on taking 2 more plus an OV then that’s serious. Anybody other than us and Tennessee has his interest?

The top 5 in the OP was from an interview earlier today. Doubt he would narrow it further in a few hours. lol

See the OP & the article in the 2nd post.

It’s insane we’re at home for four weeks straight. Hope we put on a good show for the truck full of players we’ll have watching.

This kid could have an instant impact for us. The class as a whole could be tremendous if we just fill a few more key spots.

if he’s already set his commit date before visiting us that doesn’t sound too good for us does it?

Not having a pic of us in his commit tweet looks even worse.

That’s a guess but the vols also think we are the biggest threat so go figure.

Guessing this is going to go UT's way???

Not necessarily. Hardy is the one who specifically set up the AU OV for this past weekend & is planning to be at at least 1 if not both the UGA & Bama games.
