Some of the top recruits in the nation will be in Auburn for unofficial visits this weekend. Several are believed to be close to making a decision and could leave as Tigers after the weekend is over.

Kiehl Frasizer, the big time quarterback recruit from Springdale, AR, is one of the recruits on campus. This is his second visit in three weeks for the Christian Shiloh native.  He has narrowed his choices down to five: Miami, UCLA, Auburn, Arkansas, and Notre Dame. The 6-3', 215-pound quarterback is high on the Tigers and could leave as one.

Three others to watch for to possibly commit are in-state players. Keymiya Harrell, a defensive end from Dallas county, Leeds cornerback Jonathan Rose, along with athlete Chris Jones from Minor could give their pledges to Auburn this weekend.

Several out-of-state players will be in Auburn this weekend as well. The recruits with the highest interest in the Tigers and could commit are Watts Dantzler, a offensive tackle from Dalton GA, Kris Frost athlete out of Matthews NC, and running back Mike Blakely of Bradenton FL.

Don't be surprised if Auburn lands one or all of these targeted recruits.

Coach Chizik has several other big time recruits in for the weekend and several other surprise recruits that have their eyes on the Tigers. No doubt the recruiting efforts under Coach Chizik has vastly improved from the past coaching staff's.
