Per Keith at On3 we are now expecting to bing in around 45 new players for next season between high schoolers, juco, & the portal.

And we will need every one of them.

Lucky for us, the NCAA has removed the annual limit of 25 signees for this cycle. In any previous year we couldn't have done this. We still have to stay under the overall 85 limit, so there's that.

Now, hoping to bring in 45 is well and good. Being able to find 45 SEC quality players willing to come to Auburn is an entirely different story. We will be very, very late to the game and the new coach will have to hit the ground running.

I'd be delighted if we could bring in 30 quality players but I'm thinking that's a stretch. 30's a stretch, 45 is a pipe dream. Other teams will be after good players too.

You are so right Mikey. Anyone (including CBH) can sign 45. What separates the good recruiters from the bad is can they get 25 to 30 SEC quality players or even contributors? I wonder where Keith gets that 45 number. Our current coaching staff may not be involved in the recruiting process at all after the Iron Bowl. New staff may not agree with the current recruiting board. It's going to take some time to put together a staff with most top tier assistant coaches busy preparing for bowl games. We just need to keep the faith. Somehow it will all work out. Auburn is still Auburn.

Getting THE RIGHT new HC on board as soon as possible is HUGE for this!!!!!!!!   Of our top names mentioned, Lane has proven he can win the portal!   Deion can win recruiting!!!   We need to win both!!!

@Mikey has a great point. I looked at the 2023 classes of the 2 teams that have had the biggest turn arounds in the SEC in the Vols and LSU as well as the "Protal King" Kiffin's Rebels. They all respectively took 31, 30, & 35 players in their classes. So a 45 SEC quality class for us may be a near imposibility.

That sounds too high. 45 new players in 1 year; about twice what we've ever had - to do so, Auburn better find the right head coach and start handing out $100 bills.

45!? That’s more than we used to get with Tubberville when there wasn’t a 25 scholly limit.

Question.  Could it be Alot more than that?  with Seniors graduating, and Covid Eligibility ending(?)

Juniors leaving early for NFL

Players not brought back (Annual Scholarship) (New Coach) (Red Shirts) (Grey Shirts)

Most programs have around 100-120 out early on with Invited walkons

@tightendoverthemiddleUnlikely. Would be hard to fnd more than that who would be SEC caliber. Especially since from the HS level we are expected to land on about 15-18.

With 45 players, you can definitely take those that normally would be wait and see offers.  Get those building depth with upside pieces when they are there.
