Welcome to The Podcast on the Plains, SEC Country’s daily Auburn football podcast with host Zac Blackerby. On today’s show, SEC Country’s Benjamin Wolk joins us to discuss Auburn recruiting. On Episode 24, Wolk shares his offensive and defensive predictions for the Auburn 2018 signing class.
Auburn football podcast: Recruiting update
- Start of the show: Blackerby and Wolk discuss top quarterback target Justin Fields and where he is leaning and how he regards Auburn. Fields has been hard to read ever since announcing he was no longer committed to Penn State, but Wolk explains why he’s surprised that he has not announced a new school. He lists his pick to land Fields and what Auburn must do to land him.
- 5-minute mark: Wolk predicted which offensive players would be included in Auburn’s 2018 football signing class earlier this week. He goes through each of his picks, then talks about how Jarrett Stidham affects some of the offensive players. Stidham has not hit the ground running like many expected him to, and Wolk explains the different ways top-tier recruits could perceive that situation.
- 16-minute mark: Wolk also predicted which defensive players would be included in Auburn’s 2018 football signing class this week. He talks about Auburn’s running back situation and the top guys that are still out there for Auburn to pursue.
- End of the show: Blackerby and Wolk look ahead to the Auburn-Mercer game. The experts dicuss what they expect to see from Auburn’s offense and what the Tigers should do to prepare for the rest of their schedule.
