5-Star RB Derrick Green and Top Recruits Visiting Georgia vs. Auburn Matchup
5-star running back Derrick Green is one of the top recruits in the 2013 class, and he's going to be in attendance for this weekend's showdown between the Auburn Tigers and Georgia Bulldogs.
Green is a big visitor for the Tigers, but he's nowhere near the only big-time recruit that is going to be in attendance for this SEC matchup.
Here's a list of the top five recruits that will be at Auburn vs. Georgia this Saturday:

5. Demarre Kitt, 4-Star WR, Sandy Creek (GA) *2014
4-star wide receiver Demarre Kitt is just a Junior, but he's already one of the bigger prospects for the class of 2014.
Kitt is a former Georgia commitment that has Georgia, Clemson and USC in his current top three according to 247Sports, so it would be safe to assume that the Bulldogs will be his main concern this visit.
That said, Auburn has made an offer to Kitt, so you never do know what can happen.
4. Trey Johnson, 4-Star LB, Central Gwinnett (GA)
4-star inside linebacker Trey Johnson is an Auburn commitment, and he's considered to be the No.3 player at his position by the 247Sports composite rankings—so he's going to be a pretty important visitor.
He checks in at 6'2'', 218 pounds so he has good size to play the position at the next level, and even though he's not the premier inside linebacker in Gene Chizik's 2013 class, he still projects to be a very good player.
Having the Georgia native in attendance for this big SEC clash is going to be great for Auburn.
3. Carl Lawson, 5-Star DE, Milton (GA)
Lawson has been committed to the Auburn Tigers since March of this year, and he's one of the premier recruits in their class, let alone in the nation.
At 6'3'', 245 pounds, running a 4.70 40 according to 247Sports, he projects to be an elite player off the edge at the college level.
2. Reuben Foster, 5-Star LB, Auburn (AL)
5-star inside linebacker Reuben Foster is the main recruit of Auburn's 2013 class, and he has the intangibles that would lead one to believe that he can be a superstar for the Tigers in the future.
He's the No. 1 inside linebacker in the country and the No. 1 player in Alabama, both according to the 247Sports composite rankings. He's also the No. 7 overall recruit in the nation according to said rankings.
Foster has been a huge advocate of the Auburn program even through their struggles this year, and he's easily their No. 1 recruiting draw.
He'll be in attendance for this game, which is nothing but a good thing for the Tigers.
1. Derrick Green, 5-Star RB, Hermitage (VA)
The kicker is, Auburn has to compete with the likes of Michigan, Ole Miss, Oregon and Tennessee for his commitment, so they have their work cut out for them.
The good news is, Brian Matthews of 247Sports is reporting that this will be an official visit for Green, so the Auburn staff will be afforded with a big opportunity in regards to his recruitment.
At 6'0'', 220 pounds, running a 4.4 40-yard dash (Rivals.com), Green has the potential to be a great running back at the college level, so it will be important for Auburn to make a good impression this weekend.
