As signing day nears, Auburn is hoping to add to a stellar recruiting class that ranks 11th nationally, including sixth in the Southeastern Conference.
After a weekend in which the Tigers hosted several official visitors, Gus Malzahn and his coaching staff have positioned themselves to land a few more notable recruits. SEC Country examined which ones below.
- Nate Craig-Myers, four-star receiver, Tampa, Fla.
Craig-Myers, of course, was already committed to Auburn once before, and his return trip on the Plains appears to have gone well. The Tampa, Fla., receiver said he felt like a “part of the family” even in light of his de-commitment in May. The staff called Craig-Myers a marquee player and a priority, and it appears the message was well-received. His decision will come down to Auburn, North Carolina, Florida State and Maryland.
- Jayvaughn Myers, four-star cornerback, Dade City, Fla.
The other Myers brother appeared comfortable on his second visit to Auburn, and all signs point to the Tigers as the frontrunner to land his signature come Feb. 3. The one-time Florida commit says he bonded well with secondary coach Wesley McGriff over the weekend. Last month, Myers identified Auburn as the only place where he and his brother could envision playing together . This past weekend’s visit certainly helped the Tigers’ position.
- Joshua Uche, three-star defensive end, Miami, Fla.
Uche made it known that he is down to Auburn, Michigan and Florida following his official visit on The Plains this weekend. Members of the Tigers staff are expected to visit with him in-home this week. Uche will make his announcement on National Signing Day.
- Stephen Davis, Jr., three-star athlete, Irmo, S.C.
Davis, Jr., another one-time Auburn pledge, indicated to reporters that South Carolina will have to “step it up a notch” on his official visit this weekend. The three-star athlete and son of former NFL standout Stephen Davis is expected to announce his decision come Feb. 3, and many believe it’s down to the Gamecocks and Tigers.
