Auburn football Class of 2026 recruit Will Griffin lauded the Tigers’ coaching staff after receiving an offer from Hugh Freeze and Co. — saying that they knew “exactly what they were talking about.”
“That’s one thing that stood out to me a lot, especially here,” Griffin said (h/t Auburn Rivals). “A lot of coaches have one or two but I feel like the whole entire coaching staff knew exactly what they were talking about and I’m blessed to be around those guys and build a relationship with them. The coaches here just know what they’re doing and I’m excited to see what they have in the future.”
Griffin told Rivals’ Bryan Matthews that he is planning to visit the Plains again sometime soon.
“Of course, I talked to Coach Montgomery about that and everybody,” Griffin said of a follow-up visit. “I’m definitely planning to get up here sometime soon.”
Auburn football recruit remembers the Kick Six
A generation of recruits was young when Chris Davis famously returned a missed field goal by Alabama’s Adam Griffith to keep Auburn football undefeated en route to an SEC Championship and BCS National Championship game appearance. Griffin was among them, and he told Matthews that he remembers watching the 2013 Iron Bowl with his family.
“I remember that one, ‘Davis, Davis could go all the way,'” Griffin prefaced before saying, “I remember we were watching that at home when I was younger. I have some good memories from that game.”
Digging into that quote a bit, it’s clear Griffin has no interest in ingratiating himself to Crimson Tide fans by saying he has good memories of that game. Whether or not that makes him a shoo-in to join the Tigers isn’t clear, though.
If the good reviews continue to come after Griffin’s visits to East Central Alabama, it’d certainly start to look that way.
