Auburn recruits throughout the South, but they know their biggest fights always happen with in-state rival Alabama over prospects inside the state. This year will be more of the same, as the Tigers and Crimson Tide are set battle for several in-state targets Auburn can't let slip away.
Auburn finished with the No. 6 recruiting class in the country in 2014, according to 247Sports. Head coach Gus Malzahn and his staff have established themselves as dangerous recruiters to all of their foes, including the school in Tuscaloosa.
However, the Tigers have to do all they can to make sure a 5-star defensive tackle comes to The Plains. A talented 4-star running back/safety is another big priority, while a pair of linebackers would help the defense.
