Auburn's success under Gus Malzahn in 2013 had a sizable impact on the tail end of the 2014 recruiting cycle, but it's expected to have even more influence on the class of 2015.
With another good season in 2014—which there is every reason to expect—the Tigers will have been a quality side for all of these players' junior and senior years, helping to wash the ugly stench of 2012's 3-9 campaign off their breath.
Because of that success, Auburn has earned mutual interest from some of its most important targets, many of whom are 5-star or high 4-star prospects. The Tigers are not just eager to recruit these players; these players are eager to be recruited.
Even though Auburn is after the top two players on the 247Sports composite—defensive tackle Trent Thompson and cornerback Kelvin Toliver II—the program appears to be a heavy underdog in both cases, and even though that could obviously change next season, players like them have been omitted from this list.
The following are 10 players whom Auburn has a great chance of landing; whose commitments would make this a successful recruiting cycle.
Signing day is, after all, just 11 months away.
