Evaluating the Recruiting Class of 2015

Most of the prospective student athletes L.O.I.'s are in, and the results are very good. Coach Gus Malzahn and his staff have done an incredible job of bringing quality and talent to the Auburn University football program.

Reloading will be the norm at Auburn for the next few years, so get used to winning lots of games.



There were three areas of concern that were addressed with positive results. Defensive Back, Defensive Line, and Linebacker. This year's crop of recruits will fit the bill nicely. 

On offense the only true need was offensive line, and that was actually for the future, not a true "NEED" per se.  Lots of young talent there as well.

As Ohio State proved this past football season, the back up players truly need to be ready at a moments notice. The Buckeyes went deep into their depth chart utilizing their third string QB to win the College Football Playoff Championship.

Auburn's depth chart got a tremendous boost with the addition of Tyler Queen.
