So... Like I said, Evans' games were a warning sign.

Hope he gets as much playing time as Foster got this year.

Above auskip mentioned he had never officially committed to auburn which is what I had been thinking......are we wrong?  And if not, why do auburn posters keep mentioning that Evans flipped?  Cuz he is from auburn with a father that played there too?


I'm almost certain that had fsus dc(can't recall name) hadn't of gone to uga, Marcel was not going to the tide....would've been the same situation

He had called our staff and declared he'd be going to Auburn. Reason why our website added him to the roster. Allegedly, he changed his mind at some point last night and wasnt even sure when he finally picked one. If he told our staff, I call it a flip and a character flaw on his part for not fixing the mistake the next morning.

Heard reports of the opposite  sunday night.   and then  what you heard  so basically what that means is  nothing.   No one knew anything. He was teetering so its not really a flip.  

By calling it a flip you are short changing Auburn.  He was never ours so he wasnt ours to lose.   We may have had a good chance of getting his commitment but same can be said for 20 guys the past couple years.

If what I heard (as explained) is true, it was a flip, and a poorly executed one on the kid's part.

Either way, we didn't get him, so Posted Image him. Whether it was a "flip" or not, I hope our RB's make him look like Jake Holland for the next four years.

Looking forward to 2015, which should be our best class ever. Here's a breakdown of our top 15 prospects on offense and defense for next year currently.

Offense


-John Burt, WR, Tallahassee (Fla.) Lincoln, 6-3/170: The No. 81 overall prospect for 2015, Burt is one of Auburn's two top receiver targets in the class. He attended a game at Jordan-Hare Stadium last fall and left impressed. A return trip in early 2014 is likely. Auburn WR coach Dameyune Craig recently was at his school.

-Tyler Carr, Gadsden (Ala.) Southside, 6-5/311: A 4-star prospect, Carr is listed at tackle but we think he will end up playing guard in college. Not only did he camp at Auburn last summer, but he attended several games at Jordan-Hare Stadium. At this stage, we like the Tigers' chances, but Alabama, Georgia and others are involved.

-Dexter Carter Jr., Jacksonville (Fla.) Bolles, 5-9/165: The 3-star Sunshine State product is very high on the Auburn board. For the Tigers, there is a strong connection to his family. Craig is friends with Carter's dad, a former Florida State standout.

-Chuma Edoga, Powder Springs (Ga.) McEacher, 6-4/280: A 4-star prospect with the No. 67 ranking, Edoga just named his top schools and Auburn did not make it. But he remains a high target for the Tigers. His frame is ideal for a tackle. His body quickness is uncanny. He's good friends with Auburn QB commit Tyler Queen. Georgia, Oregon and Tennessee are some of the teams involved.

-Aaron Garza, OG, Sherman (Tx.), 6-2/318: A 3-star prospect, Garza claims an Auburn offer and is extremely high on the Tigers. In fact, he's thinking about commiting sometime soon. Look for Garza to visit the Tigers within the next month or so.

-Torrance Gibson QB, Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) American Heritage, 6-4/200: A 5-star prospect and the country's No. 1 dual-threat signal caller, Gibson recently was offered by Auburn. And ... he says he is interested.

-Taj Griffin, ATH, Powder Springs (Ga.) McEachern, 5-10/175: The speedy Griffin checks in at No. 35 in the rankings. Auburn most likely would want him at slot receiver to best utilize his skills in space. He has yet to visit the Tigers, and that probably has to change sometime soon for Auburn to have a realistic shot.

-Kerryon Johnson, RB, Madison Academy (Ala.) 6-0/185: The No. 33 overall prospect for 2015, Johnson is a top running back on the Tigers board. He camped at Auburn last summer and likes the Tigers a good bit. Auburn is battling Alabama and FSU. Many believe the Seminoles are the team to beat.

-Kail Locksley, QB/ATH, Baltimore (Md.) Gilman, 6-3/188: A 247Composite 4-star prospect, he is among the country's top dual-threat quarterbacks. The bonus with Locksley: he's athletic enough to play other positions. He says he will visit Auburn, possibly this spring. Locksley's father coaches at Maryland.

-Jacques Patrick, RB, Orlando (Fla.) Timber Creek, 6-1.5/220: There are a lot of good RBs on the board for Auburn, and he's one of them. The No. 68 overall prospect for 2015, Patrick is being recruited by Tigers running backs coach Tim Horton, who has been to his school quite a few times already. The Gators and Seminoles might be the teams to beat.

-Javon Patterson, Petal (Miss.), 6-4/290: The No. 53 overall prospect and No. 2 player in Mississippi, the 4-star tackle attended two Auburn games last fall and says the Tigers are very much a contender. Ole Miss and Alabama also are factors, and the Rebs may have the early edge.

-Traveon Samuel, APB, Phenix City (Ala.) Central, 5-8/180: One of the top in-state prospects for 2015, Samuel has an impressive offer list. He's a dynamic playmaker that can line up in the backfield or at slot receiver. Don't let his 3-star rating fool you; Auburn likes Samuel a lot.

-Eric Swinney, RB Tyrone (Ga.) Sandy Creek, 5-10/180: A top-100 prospect, Swinney has visited Auburn multiple times (including last weekend), and thinks highly of the probgram. Auburn likely will try to take two RBs in 2015, and Swinney could be one of them. Georgia, Ole Miss and Tennesse also are in the picture. Notre Dame offered Wednesday.

-Garrett Thomas, OT, Many (La.), 6-6/303: Thomas visited Auburn last weekend. That was his second trip to the Plains, and he could be back a third time this spring. Thomas has a genuinely strong interest in Auburn, and the Tigers like him as well.

-Nick Wilson, Alpharetta (Ga.) Milton, 6-2.5/275: A 4-star player, Wilson is one of the South's most impressive 2015 offensive linemen. He's a strong, quick and intelligent guard. He's also a former teammate of Auburn players Carl Lawson and Peyton Barber. Wilson is No. 127 in the rankings -- No. 4 at guard.



Defense


-Austin Bryant, DE, Thomasville (Ga.) Thomas County Central, 6-4/240: No. 194 in the 247Composite; Bryant is an end, but potentially could grow into a tackle. He holds an Auburn offer and has visited the Plains several times. Many suspect FSU is the team to beat.

-Jordan Colbert, S/Star/OLB, Griffin (Ga.), 6-2/205: A 4-star prospect, Colbert recently landed an Auburn offer and has been on the Tigers' radar for some time . He could play anywhere from safety to outside linebacker at the next level.

-Byron Cowart, DE, Seffner (Fla.) Armwood, 6-4/250: A top-50 national recruit, Cowart is believed to be a Gators lean, but Auburn has made a surge in the past few months and may get a visit from him sometime in the near future. This is a major talent on the defensive line.

-Ben Edwards, S, Jacksonville (Fla.) Trinzty Christian Academy, 6-0/196: Edwards is a 3-star safety from one of the Sunshine State's top programs. He visited Auburn last summer, and attended a game. The Tigers are a major contender. So are North Carolina, Ohio State and Stanford. A decision could come this month.

-Terry Godwin, ATH/CB, Hogansville (Ga.) Callaway, 6-0/165: The No. 18 overall prospect for 2015, Godwin committed to Georgia last month, but we don't expect Auburn to give up. The Tigers like Godwin at cornerback, and with his speed and athleticism he has all the tools to be an elite player at that position. He has visited Auburn a lot. Can the Tigers get him back on campus.?

-Jeffery Holland, OLB, Jacksonville (Fla.) Trinity Christian Academy, 6-2/230: A 5-star prospect, Holland checks in at No. 27 in the rankings. He visited Auburn last summer and currently has the Tigers in his top group. Holland's uncle played hoops for Auburn in the 1980s. Auburn is very much a player. So is Florida.

-CeCe Jefferson, DE, Glen St. Mary (Fla.) Baker County, 6-2/250: Jefferson is the No. 14 overall prospect for 2015, and he recently told AUC he plans to visit Auburn. He is friends with Holland, which can't hurt.

-Jauntavius Johnson, DT, Lincoln (Ala.), 6-2.25/330: A 3-star prospect, Johnson has SEC offers from Auburn and Mississippi got in on himState. The Tigers early and were the first to offer. Auburn DL coachRodney Garner was at one of his games in 2013. The Tigers would like to see him reshape his body a little bit in the coming year, but like him a lot.

-Natrez Patrick, DE, Atlanta (Ga.) Mays, 6-3/220: The explosive Patrick is the No. 40 overall recruit in the 247Composite. Auburn's Garner has been by his school. Auburn, Alabama and Georgia all look like major players from the SEC. The Tigers have made him a priority, it seems.

-Daron Payne, DT, Birmingham (Ala.) Shades Valley, 6-2/316: Payne is the top prospect from Alabama for 2015, No. 6 overall and a 5-star recruit. He has a huge upside, and can control a game on the interior with his strength and athleticism. Auburn and Alabama are his co-leaders.

-Jamal Peters, S, Bassfield (Miss.), 6-3/200: Peters is the No. 41 overall prospect for 2015, the No. 1 player in Mississippi and the No. 2 safety. Auburn cornerbacks coach Melvin Smith, a well-known figure in the Magnolia State, is his lead recruiter. Alabama, LSU, Mississippi State and Ole Miss also are factors. This could be an intense recruitment.

-Darian Roseboro, DE, Lincolnton (N.C.), 6-4/265: The No. 95 prospect in the class, Roseboro is No. 2 among Tar Heel State recruits. Auburn offered him very early in the process and has two of its top recruiters on him -- Garner and safeties coach Charlie Harbison. He may be a tackle by the time he gets to college. Roseboro likes Auburn, but this will be a battle as he racks up offers.

-Roquan Smith, OLB, Montezuma (Ga.) Macon County, 6-2/203: Smith has made a few stops at Auburn (including last weekend) and is a major target of defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson, his primary recruiter. The No. 105 overall prospect, Smith is an Under Armour All-American.

-Trent Thompson, DT, Albany (Ga.) Westover, 6-4/292: Thompson probably is one of Auburn's top-five targets for 2015. The 5-star standout currently is No. 3 overall in the country. Georgia is the team to beat, but he likes Auburn and has visited the Tigers a bunch. Additionally, he camped there last summer.

-D'Andre Walker, DE/OLB, Fairburn (Ga.) Langston Hughes, 6-2.5/210: An explosive edge rusher, Walker recorded around 20 sacks in 2013. He's the No 82 overall prospect in his class, and at this stage Auburn is certainly in the picture, along with Georgia and some others. Auburn coach Gus Malzahn was at his school in January.

@HFS you know we'll have to have a few of those... crazy how these football factories keep putting these kids out I recognized some of those schools we have players from.

It's strange because the Alabama class for next year isn't very strong so we're battling Florida and Georgia for more recruits than Alabama.

We may have 15 kids in the next class from Georgia and Florida.

We picked up a commitment from Tony Bridges today. He's the top JUCO CB in the 2015 class.

He's a long and fast corner from the same junior college as Moncrief and D'haquille.
