Posted above. I think that helps explain Pouncey
No clue how I missed that lol.

If Gatewood doesn't get the job and transfers out do you think we take a 2nd QB this year or take 2 next year?

re: 2020 Football Recruiting Thread
Next class. Either via transfer market or high school. You want those guys identified and on board early. If you look at the 2021 QB board, a lot of those guys are already committed too.

Something to watch is if one of those guys leaves the team early. There would be time to work on a guy like Haynes King who probably was not a fan of the depth chart.

Auburn has been on ALOT of 2021 QBs. They’re in good shape to take another guy there but I’m not sure there’s ever been this many top guys committed this early at QB

Quick Ojulari tidbit. KN Hs been leaning LSU (and still is) but sounds like he’s hedging his bet some. Says this one is interesting and questions if this recruitment is like Chris Thompson Jr.’s

We’ll see

Eric Shaw is committing Thursday. Some thoughts that we may take him as a WR/TE and only take 4 DBs this year. If we do that its first come first serve between Kendall Dennis and Brian George.

KN also said that even though Pegues said he wanted to take all 5 official visits his source said that's unlikely. The same source said he doesn't think Pegues will wait mid-fall to announce. Also he apparently had a good talk with Gustav and other staff on the phone last night.


Wonder if that was a discussion about Pegues playing DT?

Still dont think we need a TE this cycle, have sufficient hb/te. Spencer Nigh, Jay Jay Wilson, John Schenker, Joiner, and the two redshirt freshmen tight ends. Then again the Jay Jay Wilson pick up confused me.

As of this morning, KN is leaning against Auburn getting Shaw.

Not sure about that. I know a HS coach in Texas with Texas ties that said they "pounced" on Pouncey quickly in part to get us back for stealing Chris Thompson from them.

A couple things from autigers07 who has the strongest recruiting track record on info from any AU reporter or insider. Shaw is not a take for AU, nor UT for that matter. Both staffs want to see how he recovers this season from an injury he had. SC is ready to take him now. Also as of today Ojulari is not picking AU.

He didn't address on us potentially only taking 4 DBs but my guess is if that happens it will be for another DL down the line.

Staff was already planning to do this per info from Keith a month or 2 back.

Maybe internally but likely not to him. As Jonesy has posted before we are solely recruiting him as a TE & that's where he wants to play.

Joiner is strictly playing RB now. Wilson & Nigh are SRs. We'll essentially have 3 players for sometimes 2 different positions after this season. Seems likely we take a HB/TE in the class.

I guess, but Pouncey unexpectedly committed late at night on the 6th after Domio and Thompson Jr committed on the 3rd & 4th and Tennison announces his impending announcement ( which, when I type that out, is kinda like CFB recruiting’s version of a promise ring) on the 4th. I think that same weekend either Dennis or George also let our staff know their intention.

Herman seems like a child so I wouldn’t put that past him but there was a clear rush by our DBs to get on board. I think the other CB is on board too and we don’t know it yet.

You’ll have to keep bringing this up. It doesn’t sink in around here

Was probably a combination of our opinions.

I will say this on Ojulari. It's interesting the LSU 247 reporters haven't made any picks yet since LSU is supposedly trending.

Literally my number 1 want in this class right now. Even with LSU considered the fav by most people I'm going to be upset if we don't get him. Hopefully the staff keeps recruiting him even if he does pick the corndogs.

The pretend melt over this guy choosing LSU will be glorious without your sincere feelings added to it

It’s been a while since we’ve had a solid miss around here

re: 2020 Football Recruiting Thread
2021 4* ATH (DB) Brandon Perry has committed to Auburn. #6 in the state for the 247 rankings.

Only catch is that he apparently didn’t tell the coaches he wanted to commit. KN says don’t be surprised if they take it but this is a weird situation
