Chizik Making Auburn Known
Chizik’s recruiting class finishes in the top 5 and rightfully so. With positions of need on the offensive side of the ball, Auburn will look to be a contender next year in the SEC.
Playing Time as a Freshman
Michael Dyer, Running Back: Possible/Definite: From Little Rock, Auburn is hoping they found the next Ronnie Brown at running back. He has all the great tools of a running back: balance, power, vision, and cut back ability. He ran for over 3,600 yards (sophomore and junior years). He is ranked in #15 overall in the nation and I could definitely see him in the backfield next year.
Trovon Reed, Wide Receiver, Athlete: Possible: Reed is an all around athlete on the field. As a junior, he threw for over 650 yards and 10 touchdowns as well as run over 700 yards and 10 touchdowns. Then he also played wide receiver and accounted for over 300 yards as well. He’s an athlete that will most likely see the offensive side of the ball as receiver.
Possible Prospect to Sign on Signing Day with Auburn
Shon Coleman, Offensive Tackle: Has been a long time soft verbal for the Auburn Tigers. He is a solid 6’7 285 pounds. He has great feet and awesome pass protection ability which will most likely put him at left tackle. He also needs to be more aggressive according to sources. I think he sticks with his commitment to Auburn even after his visits to Miami (FL), Arkansas, and Alabama.
My Pick: Auburn
Marcus Lattimore, Running Back: The #1 rated running back in the country has it down to 2 schools: Auburn and South Carolina. The South Carolina native is a solid 6’0 207 pounds with great acceleration and power. I see that Auburn has a shot at him, but with Auburn already taking the #2 rated running back I just don’t see them landing 2 top rated running backs because of depth issues. So I see Lattimore staying home and going to South Carolina.
My Pick: South Carolina
