In the past three days, Gus Malzahn’s Auburn Tigers have defied conventional wisdom that the precipitous departure of 2015 defensive coordinator Will Muschamp and his sidekick, Travaris Robinson, would destroy recruiting momentum. In a flurry of phenomenal recruiting news, the Tigers captured the signatures (some on Financial Aid Agreements, some actual NLI signings) of top Alabama recruit 5-star Marlon Davis, JUCO QB John Franklin III, JUCO DE Paul James, III, DB John Broussard, 4-star RB Malik Miller, 4-star LB Tre Threat, and 4-star TE Landon Rice.
As icing on the cake in a monster week, Malzahn and staff beat out Ohio State’s Urban Meyer for the commitment of 4-star Antwuan Jackson, a Rivals 250 recruit with enormous upside at the DT position. Of vital importance, NINE of the current 18 commitments / signees will enroll at Auburn in January, which gives Malzahn & staff a full Spring and Summer to get them ready to ball out this Fall.
Join Coach Ray and Doug Dean as they break down the latest recruiting boom, where things stand with the defensive coordinator search, and of course, a requisite celebration for reaching the 100th podcast milestone with the Auburn Football All-Access podcast show!
