National Signing Day is tomorrow, and the Auburn football team is still looking to complete their 2021 signing class under the regime of new HC Bryan Harsin. Here is a look at some of Auburn’s latest offers heading into the big day:

Kyle Vaccarella

This 6’3″ 240 pound athlete could be the first long snapper in Auburn football’s recruiting class of 2021. Out of Fairfield College Preparatory in Connecticut, Vaccarella became involved with Rubio Long Snapping and won the fall camp in December 2020, earning a six star rating from the program.

Elijah Brown

The Dayton, OH native Elijah Brown was offered a spot on the 2021 roster just yesterday. He’s a four star recruit named the No. 13 tight end in the nation, according to 247Sports.

Brown has 19 offers–Auburn’s coming most recently–and the Tigers will be competing with fellow SEC schools Alabama, LSU, and Kentucky.

Jarquez Hunter

Recruited by the only returning coach on Bryan Harsin’s first staff, Cadillac Williams, Hunter has the potential to be a powerhouse running back for the Tigers. In addition to playing football at Neshoba Central High School in Mississippi, he also ran track.

Per his 247Sports profile, the three star recruit runs 100 meters in 11.04 seconds.

Dontae Balfour

Recruited by members of the new coaching staff, this 6’2″ cornerback/wide receiver combo from Florida racked up 386 offensive yards by catching 25 passes and 39 tackles plus three interceptions on defense.

Balfour was recruited by Zac Etheridge and Derek Mason, which indicates Auburn football is looking to add Balfour to the defense.

Juwon Gaston

Safety Juwon Gaston is another player recruited by Coach Etheridge. At four stars, the Tigers are hoping to add the four star Montgomery native to beef up the secondary for 2021. He made 96 tackles in his 2020 season at Carver High, and is down to two schools: Auburn and South Carolina. He’s expected to make his decision Wednesday.

There are other offers on the table, and the Auburn football program will likely look to the NCAA Transfer Portal to help fill in the class of 2021.

On signing day eve, we’re looking forward to welcoming more Tigers to the Plains.

War Eagle, and keep your fingers crossed, Tiger fans.
