In today's edition of Auburn Tigers News, 3-star OT Favour Edwin chooses Auburn football over Alabama and the Tigers land a top-ten recruiting class

The Auburn Tigers had a busy early national signing day. 20 commits put the pen to paper and signed with Auburn football, including a big flip and a late commitment. After KJ Bolden chose Georgia around midday, Florida defensive lineman commit Amaris Williams flipped his commitment to the Tigers.

In the evening, Auburn football got more good news when 3-star offensive tackle Favour Edwin chose the Tigers over rival Alabama and Florida. From McDonough, GA, Edwin played high school ball at Eagles Landing Christian Academy and was widely predicted to sign with the Tide on early national signing day.

By the end of the day, it was official. Head coach Hugh Freeze and his staff have locked down a top-ten recruiting class in their first full year of recruiting on the Plains.

The class is headlined by a pair of 5-star in-state wide receivers, Perry Thompson and Cam Coleman, both of whom flipped from rival programs. Another major player is quarterback Walker White, who committed to Hugh Freeze early on and has been a big recruiter of his peers ever since. Half of the signees are in-state recruits, and winning those battles against Alabama is huge for the Tigers.

After the first day of the signing period, Auburn football's recruiting class of 2024 is ranked #7 in the nation behind Georgia, Alabama, Ohio State, Miami, Texas, and Oregon. In the SEC, the Tigers have the #4 class.

Though there are still a few players out there who could join the Tigers' 2024 roster, like offensive lineman Coen Echols and placekicker Towns McGough, the staff's attention will soon shift to the transfer portal.
