Maybe Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn can get more than four hours of sleep at night now that his first recruiting class is in the books. 

Doubt it. 

Malzahn is already working on building his 2014 recruiting class. After all, national signing day 2014 (Feb. 5) will be here before you know it. 

The 2013 recruiting class was, by all accounts, a home run for the Auburn coaching staff. After a 3-9 season, a coaching change and not having a full staff until January, the Tigers hauled in a borderline Top 10 class. 

It was ranked No. 11 in the 247Sports composite. Its highest ranking came from Rivals, where it was ranked No. 8. 

Auburn filled positions of need along the defensive front and running back and was able to land some dynamic playmakers at the skill positions. 

“It’s been a great day," Malzahn said in his signing day press conference. "I’m very excited about this class. We’ve signed 23 so far in this class. I really feel like we filled our needs. We tried to address our immediate needs, and I really feel like that we accomplished that."

Auburn signed six junior college players and 17 players who will come in as freshmen. With a new coaching staff, all positions are up for grabs. 

Here are five of those freshmen whom you may see in the starting lineup when toe meets leather on Aug. 31 against Washington State.
