Going in to this years recruiting class, Auburn is only looking to sign two or three wide receivers. Coach Chizik is going after quality at this position and here are a few that the Tigers are looking to sign.

Jeremy Richardson of Scooba, Mississippi was an Auburn signee a year ago and is still high on the Tigers.  The 6'3" 225 lb wide receiver ended up at East Mississippi Community College and will have two years to play for the Tigers.

As a junior in high school, Richardson caught 61 passes for over 1,200 yards and 22 touchdowns.

Unless something changes expect to see this big wide receiver in an Auburn uniform next season.

Ocean Springs Mississippi wide receiver Joseph Morrow is strongly considering Auburn and LSU. The 6'5" 200 lb prospect has 4.5 speed and has several schools taking notice.

As a junior, Morrow caught 39 passes for 763 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Morrow plans to camp at LSU this summer but has already made a couple of visits to the plains and left very impressed. The Tigers have moved to the top of his list but he doesn't plan to decide anytime soon.

Another wide receiver Auburn is looking at hard is Nickalos Brassell of Batesville Mississippi. Brassell is 6'2" and 175 lbs and has interest in the Tigers and plans to visit the plains.

Brassell caught 62 passes for over 1,200 yards and 15 touchdowns last season and is looking for a big senior season.

Brassell will play in the U.S Army all-star game in January and is the only player from Mississippi to make top 100 list.

Chizik and staff aren't signing many wide receivers this season, but I expect this small group could be part of something special by the time they leave the plains.
