Who I think Auburn’s top 6 targets are


Auburn already has 16 commitments for this year’s recruiting class. With our numbers the way they are I don’t see Auburn taking any more than 23 in this class. Here are the top 6 prospects I think are on Auburn’s boards.

DT Montravius Adams ( 6-3, 290)- Adams has visited Auburn many times this spring. His last visit was this past weekend. He visited with his mother. Adams is a consensus 5 star from all the recruiting networks. He is a must for this recruiting class not only for Auburn’s need at the defensive tackle position, but also because of his tremendous talent. Adams is a star right now. He has the body of most DT’s that have been playing in college for 1-2 years.  From everything that I have heard, and what I know, I think that at the end of this recruiting class Adams inks his name for the Auburn Tigers.

ATH Jayron Kearse (6-4, 180)- This is a confusing prospect if I do say so myself. He was actually Auburn’s first commit for the 2013 class, but decommitted when Gus Malzahn left for Arkansas State. He then committed to Miami, but only to decommit around a month ago. He now says he has no leaders, and will take the process slow from here on out. He visited Auburn this past weekend. I think he ends up signing with Auburn. (Auburn is recruiting him as a WR, but he can also play Safety.)

RB Derrick Green (6-0, 215)-  Green is the number one running back for the 2013 class. He is a bruiser for a back. Not only can he cut and go outside, but he also has the body to run between the tackles 15-20 times a game. Green also visited this past weekend and left with only good things to say about Auburn. Green is being recruited not only by the coaches but also Auburn commits Dee Liner, Carl Lawson, and Reuben Foster. This is a hard one for me to make a decision on, but I think that Auburn gets either Green or Bryant.

OL Tyrone Crowder ( 6-2, 315)- Auburn is looking to take 1-2 offensive lineman, particular inside lineman, in this class. Crowder visited Auburn a couple weeks ago and left with Auburn very high on his list. I think that Crowder’s recruitment will go down to the wire. I also think that Auburn has a very good chance of signing him, but that will also depend on if they have room since OL is not a position of need as of right now.

S Tray Matthews ( 6-2, 190)- This is another weird recruiting story. Matthews, who is committed to Georgia, is good friend with Auburn commit Reuben Foster. For weeks Matthews kept saying that Foster and him would be playing football together in college, but with Foster going ahead and flipping from Alabama to Auburn that seemed to have caught him off guard. I think that Matthews wanted Foster to go to UGA with him. Friendship is a strong bond, and might be the deciding factor in his college decision. Auburn has not given up on him nor will they. I won’t make a prediction on his recruitment only because he is currently committed to a team right now, and unless something happens I don’t know if that will change.

RB Greg Bryant ( 5-11, 200)- Bryant is an interesting prospect to watch. With Derrick Green visiting Auburn, I see this recruitment moving fast if he does switch. Bryant, who is committed to Oklahoma, has announced that South Carolina and Auburn are still among his favorites. There were rumors that Bryant would actually visit Auburn today, but that has not been confirmed yet. Bryant who was by far the best running back at the Rivals 100 Challenge will likely get his coveted 5th star. Once again I will not make a prediction on him, because he is still committed to OU, but I will say this, if he does end up decommitting from OU then watch out Tiger fans we could be getting out 17th commitment.

Also considered was Ricky Seals-Jones, OJ Howard, and Laquon Treadwell.
