With Texas A&M coming to town, Auburn has a big recruiting weekend ahead. The Tigers will host three official visitors and several high-profile unofficials.

Here's a look at who we expect to be in town ...


Nakobe Dean, LB, Horn Lake (Miss.): A 5-star backer, Dean has been one of Auburn's biggest targets throughout the entirety of this recruiting cycle. But he hasn't stepped foot on campus since earlier in the year and that certainly is a concern. That will change this weekend when Dean officially visits for the Texas A&M game. According to sources, Auburn is said to feel cautiously optimistic here. The Tigers think they are in this one more than people think and we agree. Still, it's an uphill fight. Two Auburn coaches watched Dean play earlier this fall. He wants to study engineering and a great focus will be on academics during his upcoming visit. We view Alabama as the favorite with Georgia next. Dean loved his first visit to Auburn. Can another good trip get the Tigers squarely into the hunt?
