National Signing Day 2018 – Part Deux is in the books.
The composite class rankings have Auburn coming in at Number 12 in the NCAA and Number 3 behind Georgia and Alabama in the SEC.
Minus signing one or two offensive linemen, however, this is an overall good group of recruits and, as expected, Auburn Head Football Coach Guz Malzahn waxed poetic about those that signed today and of those that signed during the Early Signing Period. To be sure, some additional depth was added. And, some of these guys have exceptional speed and size.
Hopefully, Auburn will go after the O-Line and D-Line recruits sooner instead of later for the 2019 signing class. To me, these guys in the trenches don’t get the glamour that skill position players receive so they are more likely to sign early. Now, to be honest, this paragraph is just this writer’s opinion and nothing more.
We learned today – or at least I did – that Jarrett Stidham will miss the first two weeks of Spring Practice due to shoulder surgery so that will give Malik Willis and Joey Gatewood some needed reps at quarterback with both the first and second teams. I mention this due to the Gatewood signing and early enrollment.
Many thanks from TET to Zach Taylor(@best5zach) for managing the thread and for the signing day info below.
A huge shout out also to our great commenters in keeping the thread going today even though I’m sure it seemed to crawl due to the lack of excitement caused by the Early Signing Period.
