Despite signing two quarterbacks in the 2016 recruiting cycle, Auburn could be in a position to add a few more in 2017.
The Tigers return quarterbacks Jeremy Johnson, Sean White and Tyler Queen, and added two more in four-star quarterback Woody Barrett and junior transfer John Franklin III on signing day.
SEC Country examined the top quarterback targets who could join that group on National Signing Day 2017.
N’Kosi Perry, three-star dual-threat quarterback, Ocala, Fla.
Auburn was the latest to offer Perry, the No. 10 dual-threat passer in the 2017 class. The 6-foot-3, 176-pound standout from Vanguard recently participated in the 2016 Nike Regional Combine held in Orlando. The former Miami commit is being recruited primarily by offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee, and Auburn figures to be a potential landing spot for him.
Bailey Hockman, four-star pro-style quarterback, Powder Springs, Ga.
The former Georgia commit was on Auburn’s campus earlier in the month, and he could potentially revisit again later in the year. Hockman, the No. 8 pro-style passer in 2017, is a talented lefty out of McEachern High School. He’s already reported 17 offers.
Lowell Narcisse, four-star dual-threat quarterback, Saint James, La.
The Tigers lost a commitment from Narcisse in the weeks leading up to signing day, but Auburn will likely remain in contention for his signature in the coming months. The four-star quarterback is rated as the No. 4 dual-threat passer in 2017, and he’s a coveted prospect across the Southeastern conference. LSU appears to be the early favorite following his de-commitment.
Jake Bentley, four-star pro-style quarterback, Opelika, Ala.
The in-state quarterback is certainly a name to remember. Bentley, rated as the No. 5 pro-style quarterback in 2017, has been trending towards other schools as of late, including South Carolina and Stanford, but the Tigers’ ease of access could help the program keep him in state.
