Two JUCO Players to Watch

The 2015 football season is just a few weeks away and Auburn will have a new scoreboard and team to celebrate. Jeremy Johnson will finally get his start and I just hope that he remains at Auburn for 2 more years. There are 2 former JUCO players that I will be watching this season and they are destined to be stars at Auburn University. The players are:

1) Jovon Robinson - Jovon set the JUCO rushing record at the Georgia Military College in 2013 with 2,387 rushing yards and 34 TDs. His combined rushing yards for 2 years in the JUCO ranks was 3,198 and 43 TDs. Ironically, he was recruited by Alabama and Louisville before deciding to play at Auburn.

2) Jason Smith - I remember watching Jason play in the 2012 Alabama-Mississippi All Star game with Jeremy Johnson and hea was all over the field. He was the MVP in that game and caught 6 passes for 134 yards. He went on to play quarterback at MIssissippi Gulf Coast College and threw for 1,566 yards for 18 TDs and only 2 picks. Also, he rushed for 424 yards and 10 TDs. I expect Jason to play some in the "wildcat" position this season, wide receiver and maybe return some punts. He will keep the opposing DBs awake at night.

Enjoy the season and War Eagle!
