Auburn’s victory against Arkansas was exactly what the Tigers needed for recruiting purposes.
Coming off a bye week, a refreshed Auburn didn’t just beat its SEC West foe. The Tigers humiliated the Razorbacks. The victory gives Auburn a four-game winning streak and two of the best-looking losses in the country.
It’s time for Auburn to start getting some momentum on the 2017 and 2018 recruiting trail. This win might have helped do the trick.
Auburn targets and commits acted with upbeat positivity after the dismantling of Arkansas.
3-star safety commit Jordyn Peters: “Proud. We looked great out there. Starting to put the puzzle together.”
4-star ATH commit Malcolm Askew: “Everybody needs to wake up … because this team is for real. We played lights out tonight, took all the momentum early, put our foot on their neck … and the rest is history. War Eagle.”
3-star LB commit Chandler Wooten: “I didn’t see that coming, but we got it rolling now.”
4-star 2018 OL target Jalil Irvin: “Great game by Auburn. I’m really impressed by them and great play by both sides of the ball. I will be back.”
Unranked 2018 LB target Braelen Oliver: “I knew Auburn was going to win, but I wasn’t expecting by that much. But I’m happy they got the win, so they can move up in the rankings, but I feel that defensive presence was like none other tonight.”
Unranked 2018 TE target Brandon Shellnutt: “What a blowout. I really thought it would be a contest for both teams, but Auburn came to ball tonight and held nothing back on them. Auburn really showcased their strengths on both sides of the ball. They ran the ball strong and they couldn’t be stopped. Defensively, they were explosive and were always making big hits and plays to change the game. It was an exciting game to be at, and I definitely enjoyed it all.”
4-star 2018 DE Coynis Miller: “It was a good game. The defense played a great game tonight, only let up 3 points, so they took care of business.”
