After Auburn's heartbreaking loss to Florida State in the BCS National Championship Game, the only thing left for Tigers fans to do is look forward to the future.
As it turns out, "the future" is almost here—as Auburn's 2014 signing class continues to shape itself with national signing day approaching.
Believe it or not, the Auburn coaching staff has been almost just as successful off the field as it has been on the field in the past several months. While Gus Malzahn and the Auburn coaches were engineering the best turnaround in the history of college football between the whistles on game days, they were also putting together a solid recruiting class off the field—one that they hope will help bring the Tigers back within reach of a national championship sometime soon.
With Feb. 5 just on the horizon, here is everything Tigers fans need to know before letters of intent start rolling in on national signing day—and before Auburn takes its first steps toward what looks like a bright future ahead on the Plains.
