Auburn has several commits participating in the game. Running back Asa Martin, wide receiver Shedrick Jackson, wide receiver Seth Williams and offensive lineman Kam Stutts were all invited and participated in practices throughout the week. Two other commits — defensive tackle Coynis Miller and defensive athlete Josh Marsh — made it into the game but weren’t able to play because of injury or health reasons.
A few other potential Tigers made it into the showcase.
Wide receiver target Justyn Ross will be one of the more highly-coveted prospects down the stretch in the Class of 2018. He had a strong week down in Hattiesburg. Offensive line target Tank Jenkins was one of the more physically gifted participants in this year’s game. He was pushing people around all week long in practice.
Two under-the-radar prospects — Memphis cornerback commit CD Daniels and Mississippi State tight end commit — are still being recruited by Auburn. Both had strong showings throughout the week and will likely be recruiting options for the Tigers in January.
