The Auburn football coaching staff has certainly put the pedal to the metal when it comes to recruiting the class of 2023 to the Plains. The Tigers have pushed hard for their top targets, earning places in the top schools lists of various recruits and setting up official visits to show those prospects what their future home could look like.
The coaching staff is not holding back at all when it comes to recruiting those athletes who have already given verbal commitments to other schools. In fact, Auburn football is looking to flip multiple recruits from the class of 2023, and they may have a real chance with a few of them.
Earlier this month, UGA offensive lineman commit Ryqueeze McElderry took an official visit to the Plains and had very positive feedback for the Tigers. Now, another Dawg commit will take his turn checking out head coach Bryan Harsin’s program.
4-star offensive tackle Bo Hughley has a strong relationship with Harsin and speaks to him regularly, which helped the Tigers earn an official from the already-committed prospect. He told Auburn Undercover what he is looking to get out of his visit:
“I’ve been to Auburn a couple times, not gonna lie,” Hughley said. “So I’m pretty sure I know a lot about Auburn. I feel like I need to go down there and catch a vibe with the coaches, with the area, the fans, I want to see all that. I want to see how the fans are around there, how the coaches are on a day-to-day base, how the players are on a day-to-day base on the field and off the field type of situation.”
Hughley is already linked to Auburn by way of his current Langston Hughes teammate Terrance Love, who committed to the Tigers earlier this spring, but insisted that it will not affect his decision. However, two more Langston Hughes prospects are set to visit with Hughley, as well as Love, so the offensive tackle can expect a full court press from Auburn football next weekend.
