Already owning the 15th-ranked recruiting class (according to ESPN), the Auburn Tigers are still in the hunt for some of the top recruits in the nation.

Boasting 19 total commits, including 5-star defensive end Carl Lawson, the Tigers will look to build their roster with a new coaching staff at the helm.

Here are the latest updates regarding potential Auburn recruits.


Mackensie Alexander, CB

Alexander is one of the most sought-after cornerbacks on the recruiting trail, given his potential upside as a lockdown corner.

The 5'11" corner has offers from Texas A&M, Clemson, Mississippi State and Auburn and will be visiting with the Tigers this weekend, according to Yahoo! Sports' Justin Hokanson:

It sounds as though Alexander has enjoyed Auburn's recruiting campaign and the moves its made with its coaching staff, as you can see in this video, courtesy of

While there was a rumor that Alexander had committed to Miss. State, those rumors were squashed by 247 Sports' Luke Stampini.

Alexander appears to be keeping his lips closed, but no matter where he signs, that program will be getting one of the best cornerback recruits in college football.


Montravius Adams, DT

As a Georgia native, Montravius Adams would be a hometown favorite if he were to sign with the Tigers.

The 6'3", 281-pound defensive tackle is surprisingly quick for his big frame, possessing quick feet and hands to get off the line.

Adams has offers from multiple schools, including Auburn, Florida, Clemson, Alabama and Georgia, but will be on the Tigers' campus this weekend, reports Hokanson:

Adams is slated to make his announcement at 9:45 a.m. ET on Wednesday.


Reuben Foster, LB

According to, Auburn native Reuben Foster will make his announcement at 9 p.m. ET Monday night on Fox Sports South.

As to where he'll be signing, Foster hasn't given us any indications as to where he'll end up. reports that Foster's list is down to Auburn, Georgia and Alabama, but is it possible that the hometown kid could spurn the Tigers in favor of the Crimson Tide?

Peep this from Yahoo! Sports' Jake Rowe:

With Foster dissing the Tigers in favor of Alabama, it's not looking good for Auburn signing the linebacker.
