Although ranked No. 8 in the SEC recruiting rankings, Auburn has the No. 15 class in the country, according to 247Sports. Head coach Gus Malzahn is now in charge on The Plains, and a top-5 recruiting class could be on the horizon.
The Tigers have maintained their position as one of the top recruiting programs in the country, evidenced by a strong class of 15 commitments. Yet Malzahn and his staff still have many remaining targets they wish to land before February, which would cement an elite class for 2014.
For Auburn to make a big move up the recruiting rankings, it will have to secure pledges from several key uncommitted prospects. Beating out a trio of SEC rivals for a defensive lineman, plus landing commitments from a certain offensive lineman and outside linebacker, would be a great start.
