I have a news flash for every recruit out there today, that has aspirations of playing in the SEC. Auburn University is where you want to be. No matter where you played your high school football, Auburn is coming to try and get you to the Loveliest Village on the Plains.
Prattville High School was considered an Alabama supply line for years, nay decades. Not anymore! Two recruits chose to step out of that comfort zone, and commit with the school that has the most upside. Kamryn Pettaway will join the Tigers in 2014, and so will former Lion standout Derrick Moncrief. Moncrief is rated the number one JUCO safety prospect in the country and number six overall.
Our cross state rivals had been beating us to some of the top prospects in the Mobile area as well lately. This weekend has shown that Auburn is making a huge push in that neck of the woods. No less than four of the seven current Auburn commits are from the Mobile, AL region.
Auburn head football coach Gus Malzahn and his staff are working long hours, and getting results. The places that these future prospects are coming from shows us that we aren't just getting a few that may slip through the cracks. Our coaches have been knocking down some doors!
