Some thoughts from lil ole Zeek (not insider information just my perspective):

  • QB - Whether or not we take a second quarterback likely depends on if we get a transfer from the 2021 group that fills a 2022 spot. So, if we get LSU's Finley for example then I don't expect us to take a second 2022 QB. I do believe that we should aim for a blue chip 2023 quarterback.
  • RB - Hampton and Judkins are going to be hard pulls but I'm staying optimistic. Both will take official visits which is huge. We sorely need two running backs in this class even if we pick up a transfer as well. I expect Barrett and Shivers to be gone after this season leaving us with only Tank and Hunter.
  • WR - Would like to see us take three here especially if we don't land a transfer. We have a LOT of sophomores which can lead to an empty cupboard if they all graduate or leave at once. WR also seems like a popular position to lose players to the transfer portal. Need to stockpile here after only taking one WR last year. I do, however, think that we might see a lot of pro-set 12 formation which means we'll only have 2 WRs on the field for a decent amount of time.
  • TE - This is a hard one to read. We currently have decent numbers with a good amount of eligibility left. Shenker will likely be gone though and Pegues did switch positions this season so I think 1 minimum and 2 if there's a second guy the staff feels is worthy of a spot.
  • OL - Need to see Will Friend pulling his weight here. Dayne Shor is a guy I'd like to see us turn up the heat on among others. If we're using bagmen then this is the position group to pour the majority of our funds lol. We have NINE scholarship linemen who will be seniors this year (though they have the option to return as 6th year seniors) but I don't expect many players to take this option.
  • DL - a position where the numbers aren't as bad as people think. With a base 3-4 we're looking at only three defensive linemen on the field at a time with a 4th "edge" player being the linebacker/DE hybrid. Lee Hunter has impressed early, JJ should translate over well, Fair is a stop-gap solution, but Leota and another transfer target both have 3+ years of eligibility.
  • LB - Pappoe could leave early (a lot of people keep ignoring this statement but I believe it) and McClain won't be using his additional COVID year if I had to be the farm. Steiner, Reily, and other young linebackers have tremendous athleticism but we haven't seen it translate to results quite yet. Would like to see us add three at this position (likely including one transfer).
  • DB - I think McCreary, Smoke, Miller, and even Jaylin Simpson could all declare after this season. So while the number of transfers at this position may seem head scratching right now, I believe it's the staff anticipating a need preemptively... something we haven't seen much of in the past.
  • It's obvious the staff values height at almost every position. Personally, I like this because it gives us a better chance to have more players drafted. Too often we watch good Auburn players go undrafted or slide into later rounds because they're missing a certain physical trait. I like taking guys with NFL frames and then developing them from there. The DBs are almost all 6'0" minimum and the linebackers are taller than what we've had in recent years.

On Shaz Preston it says we made his top 105. Sure it’s a typo but it’s got a star by it , so maybe not.

May be 5* weak side def end?

Yeah, looks like 5* WDE Jeremaih Alexander needs to be moved down under DEs.

Does LSU even have a DC yet? 

Not yet. Looks like Barry Odom may be the next man up. Just read an article Oregeron said he doesn't have a timetable for hiring somebody.

I wonder if their message boards are melting like ours?

Eston Harris is a perfect example of what was wrong with our O-Line recruiting. He is in our own backyard and until a new coaching administration we were not on him at all.

 

Look at this time line from 247 UK, Miami, Indiana, Oregon, Missouri all offer him. 6'6" 280 pounds moves well but we were not in on him.

Damari Alston is a 2022 4* RB we’re talking to. Looks like Caddie is liking this kid.

Know anything about him?

 

Sorry, no. Mansfield is a little out of my area. Plays at a good program though and has good size as a Junior

Can someone create an Eston Harris three? He’s a three star OT in the 2022 class. Jeffrey Lee has a free article&  says he’s a high priority. I’m kind of busy with work right now.

2022 in-state 4-star prospect getting early attention from new Auburn staff

by Jason Caldwell

29 minutes ago

MOBILE, Alabama—At 6-2, 210 pounds, class of 2022 football prospect Shemar James from Faith Academy is ranked as a 4-star recruit by 247Sports as a wide receiver, but it’s at another position that he has already been contacted by Coach Bryan Harsin and the new staff for the Auburn Tigers. Playing multiple positions on both sides of the ball as a junior, James caught 34 passes for 453 yards and seven touchdowns, carried the ball 44 times for 249 yards and five touchdowns, and added 66 tackles, 10 tackles for a loss, six sacks, an interception and a blocked kick on defense.

It’s the numbers on defense that made Auburn linebacker coach Jeff Schemming  take notice when he turned on video from James’ junior season.

“The inside linebacker coach, Coach Schmedding, he was actually the first person I talked to,” James said. “He told me to call him probably the day he got to Auburn. He told me they wanted to re-offer me after they watched my film and I was actually the first film he watched as soon as he got there.

“He told me he came to Auburn because he knows about the winning tradition and just the way they play football. I talked to the head coach, too. He made a good first impression. I hope I did as well. I haven’t really talked to him much, but it seems like he’s going to be a great coach up there at Auburn.”

Already with more than a dozen offers from programs such as Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, LSU, Ole Miss, Penn State, South Carolina and Tennessee, James has been a priority recruit for several teams already. Getting that first look and such early attention from Auburn was something that really stood out to him after those early phone conversations.

“That means a lot,” James said. “I don’t know how many people they offered in the 2022 class, but for me to be the first film they watched that shows that I’m a priority.” 

Playing all over the field is something that James said he believes will give him an advantage when he is on defense. With linebackers now having to play outside of the box and in coverage at times, he said being familiar with what wide receivers do and think can help him on the next level.
