I'm excited, are you?  This coaching staff has done an unbelievable job with recruiting.  They have grabbed the attention of 17 year old kids instead of worrying what 40 year old guys think. 

Right now Auburn has a legit shot at a top 5 class by the time signing day gets here.  With guys like Lache Seastrunk, whom I believe is a silent commit, we can easily get other top recruits influenced.

The recruits that are popping up at Auburn are unbelievable.  Just look at "Big Cat Weekend." It featured five 5 star recruits, seven or eight 4 star prospects, and plenty of other talent.  These guys really know how to recruit. The coaches aren't inviting these recruits to regular visits, instead they are letting them relax and have a good time. 

These are the kind of visits that recruits like.  Every single recruit who went to "Big Cat Weekend" had Auburn either #1 or is seriously considering Auburn as someone  they would commit to. 

All of a sudden, Auburn is creating enough buzz that other top recruits are coming in to see what all the fuss is about.  If Auburn can keep this up, and have a decent season this year, they could possibly land the number one class in the nation.

War Eagle!
