Staff views him as C but can play all five spots on the line.

So with him being able to play all five spots on the line, does that make him a fifteen star recruit? :)

Just trying to boost the rankings.

Tigers add a lot of versatility in Bobo

Drew Bobo plays left tackle for Auburn High School. When he steps up to Auburn University next season, he could easily transition to guard or center.

Bobo, the son of offensive coordinator Mike Bobo, committed to AU on Sunday.

“He’s got great feet. He works tremendously hard,” said Auburn HS head coach Keith Etheredge. “He’s a kid that can play any position upfront — center, guard, tackle. That makes him invaluable for us. Our center’s went out a couple of times and he’s jumped in there and played center for us. He’s played tackle all year.

Bobo is Auburn's 12th commitment for the 2022 class.

“He’s a kid that grades out at over 90 percent about every game. He has about 4-5 pancakes per game. Just a quality young man and a great football player.”

Etheredge expects Bobo, who is up to 6-foot-5 and 300 pounds, to play guard or center for AU.

“He moves so well, he can play guard. He’s so dependable and smart, he can play center too,” said Etheredge. “I think he’ll probably be an interior guy to start with and if they need some help outside, he’s a guy that can move out there and do that too.”

Bobo is the second Auburn High standout to commit to AU joining linebacker Powell Gordon. The Tigers could be close to adding a third in offensive tackle Eston Harris.

All three serve as captains but Bobo might have the most natural leadership skills.

"He’s a great leader,” said Etheredge said. “He’s mild-mannered and a real quiet kid, but when he talks all the kids listen. They all respect him. Everybody knows he wants to do things the right way.”

That quiet, mild-mannered attitude changes when Bobo steps between the lines.

“Oh, he definitely has a switch that flips because he’s going to play snap to whistle every play,” Etheredge said. “And if they ain’t blowing the whistle, he’s probably burying somebody. He’s one of those kids that’s just going to play full-tilt all the time.

“If there’s a kid over there and they’re not bringing their A-game, it’s going to be a long night for them. He plays to his level. He’s not going to diminish his level if we’re playing a team that doesn’t have a dog over there.”

Auburn High School, which is 6-1 and ranked No. 4 in Class 7A, plays at Smiths Station Friday night.

Think I read an article that said he could be bumped to 4*? Or was that my imagination?

I believe it was either Cole Pinkston or Jeffrey Lee of on3 sports.

Somebody wanted an update and that’s what the kid did today. :) 

ah. Kind of a curious point though, since Dad isn't working locally anymore. If Bobo is a January enrollee, then it's a throwaway comment. Otherwise, the plot thickens.

If Drew Bobo was willing to commit to a school other than Auburn while his dad was employed at Auburn, does it not stand to reason that he'd stand by his commitment to Auburn without his father's employment here?

Or am I just being naive?

Would be tough staying at the place that just fired your Pops but stranger things have happened. Depends on how it ended and potential discussions that may have been had between the Bobo’s and Harsin. I’d love to have him onboard but if I were betting $$ this would seem an obvious no go.

Brian Van Gorder's son stayed at Auburn... granted he was a walk-on, but still
