We always knew Auburn football’s new performance facility would be top of the line, and the visuals tweeted out by class of 2022 recruit Holden Geriner show what $91 million can buy.

The Football Performance Center is set to be completed by the summer of 2022 and will be a standalone facility at the former location of Hutsell Track on Biggio Drive. Auburn University’s board of trustees approved the project earlier this month.

According to Tom Green of, the new facility will house Auburn’s football operations building, an indoor practice field, and two outdoor practice fields in addition to other major features:

"Among the other features of the complex are a new weight room, a locker room for players, team meeting rooms, a players’ lounge, barbershop, recruiting lounge, flight simulator and two recording studios. The facility will also be home to the program’s sports medicine and nutrition offices, football administration offices, equipment room and laundry."

Auburn Wire reports that a major focus of the facility will be player development, but obviously, the intent is likely to attract more top recruits as well. The football program has heavily relied on on-campus recruiting and selling the atmosphere and Auburn itself to recruits, so having a big shiny new facility may help with that strategy…especially after having that advantage taken away for the length of the pandemic.

The virtual tour comes from Auburn football’s class of 2022 quarterback recruit Holden Geriner . A Savannah, GA native, Geriner is listed as a 3-star on 247 Sports and is the No. 18 pro-style QB recruit.

Geriner has been playing the role of the quarterback by day, social media recruitment assistant by night for Auburn football. He recently tweeted at four-star recruit Shemar James in an attempt to entice the defensive stud to join him on the Plains.

Perhaps this is another attempt to garner the attention of fellow star recruits.

In his 2020 high school football season at Benedictine Military Academy Geriner completed 179 passes for 2,770 yards and 25 touchdowns. He also rushed for 116 yards and five touchdowns. Geriner’s future at Auburn looks bright, especially since the Football Performance Center is expected to be completed by the time he hits the field in Jordan-Hare in 2022.
