247Sports name Auburn’s 10 most wanted recruits

·2 min read

Auburn’s recruiting class is in quite an interesting phase. Each one of the Tigers commits are a four-star prospect, but there are only six of them.

If you want to focus on the individual player rating then this is a solid core to the class and their class ranking should be ignored. If you focus on the size then it is alarmingly small and lagging behind its peers. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle.

The good news is that there is plenty of time for Auburn’s class to grow and Christian Clemente of Auburn Undercover took a stab at ranking the 10 players that Auburn wants the most, with some rules.

His list focuses on players that “Auburn has a legitimate shot of landing or that I believe they can land.”

Here is a look at those 10 players. You can check out Auburn’s committed prospects here.
