With National Signing Day over, we turn our attention to some of the targets Auburn will be gunning for this time next year.
Check them out below:
Markail Benton, four-star linebacker, Central (Phenix City, Ala.)
Benton was a regular visitor to Auburn’s campus this past year, and was even spotted on The Plains the weekend of Jan. 15 when the Tigers hosted several notable official visitors. The No. 1 prospect in Alabama, Benton is already considered a favorite to sign with Auburn next February.
Will Ignont, four-star linebacker, IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.)
A recent transfer to IMG Academy, Ignont is another linebacker Auburn will be recruiting heavily in the coming months. He unofficially visited The Plains twice this past season and will likely visit more in 2016.
Jeffrey Okudah, five-star safety, South Grand Prairie (Grand Prairie, Texas)
After missing out on U.S. Army All-American Nigel Warrior, Auburn will certainly turn its attention towards recruiting Okudah, the No. 1 safety in 2017. As of now, the Tigers aren’t believed to be a favorite to land him.
Aubrey Solomon, four-star defensive tackle, Lee County (Leesburg, Ga.)
Solomon, who has only reported a few offers, is among Auburn’s targets along the defensive line for 2017. Defensive line coach Rodney Garner and assistant coach Scott Fountain have been his lead recruiters up until this point. He is rated as the No. 7 defensive tackle in the country.
Tray Bishop, four-star athlete, Terrell County (Dawson, Ga.)
Auburn is still at the top for Bishop, one of the better athletes in 2017. That is likely to continue unless Georgia is able to make a strong push. The four-star athlete can play either receiver or safety at the next level.
