With nine days to go before signing day, Auburn coaches will be out in full force to check in on several targets and currently committed prospects.
Coach Gus Malzahn met with four-star brothers Nate Craig-Myers (Tampa, Fla.) and Jayvaughn Myers (Dade City, Fla.) on Sunday. He was accompanied on the visits by wide receivers coach Dameyune Craig and secondary coach Wesley McGriff. Both took their official visit to Auburn the weekend of Jan. 15.
Malzahn will then head to Paramus, N.J., on Tuesday to check the pulse of Rashan Gary, the country’s top prospect. Joining him will be defensive coordinator Kevin Steele and defensive line coach Rodney Garner. How much interest Gary still has in the Tigers remains to be seen. Michigan, Alabama and Ole Miss appear to be the front-runners in recent weeks.
McGriff is set to visit with three-star safety Marlon Character on Tuesday. Character appears to have shored up his commitment to Auburn following his official visit over the weekend. He told multiple reporters he cannot envision himself flipping after his trip to The Plains.
On Wednesday, the Auburn staff will hit the states of Florida and Georgia. Steele and Garner are expected to visit with three-star defensive end David Marshall, who recently told SEC Country he had a better relationship with Georgia’s Kirby Smart than any other coach pursuing him. McGriff, on the other hand, will head to Suwanee, Ga., to visit with four-star safety Nigel Warrior, who is coming off his official visit to Auburn.
Malzahn, Craig and assistant Scott Fountain will head to West Palm Beach, Fla., on Wednesday to visit with four-star receiver Ahmmon Richards, whom the Tigers have courted heavily in recent weeks. Fountain was set with visit four-star receiver Tre Nixon in Melbourne, Fla., on Thursday, but will no longer do so following his commitment to Ole Miss. Five-star linebacker Ben Davis is also expecting Malzahn and other coaches sometime this week.
We will update this list as we confirm more visits
