Auburn offers 5-star defensive lineman Iose Epenesa

Five-star defensive lineman Iose Epenesa may come from an Iowa Hawkeye family but the Auburn Tigers are making a run at him. The Tigers extended an offer to the 2025 prospect on Monday.

His father Eppy, who announced the news, and his brother AJ both played at Iowa while his brother Eric is currently a walk-on for Iowa. AJ is currently a defensive end for the Buffalo Bills.

Epenesa is the No. 10 overall player and No. 3 defensive lineman in the 247Sports Composite ranking. He is also the No. 1 player from Illinois.

Checking in at 6-foot-4 and 230 pounds he projects as a defensive end or edge defender over an interior player. He made 46 tackles, 13.0 tackles for loss, and 5.0 sacks Edwardsville High School as a sophomore
