Cam Coleman named an ‘instant-impact’ signee by College Sports Wire

Auburn struck gold during the 2024 recruiting cycle by signing four quality wide receivers to boost its passing production.

The leader of the group is Cam Coleman, a five-star signee from nearby Phenix City who joins Auburn’s roster as the state of Alabama’s top recruit of the class, and the nation’s No. 2 overall wide receiver.

Coleman is on campus and is going through spring practice. He is expected to be in contention for the offense’s top receiver role alongside jay fair, Caleb Burton, and Georgia State transfer Robert Lewis.

When breaking down every SEC signing class, College Sports Wire‘s Matt Melton picked Coleman as Auburn’s “instant-impact” player for the cycle. Melton believes that Coleman can be the best receiver that Auburn has had in quite some time.

When looking at Auburn’s 2024 recruiting class overall, it’s hard to pick against Coleman not being the biggest instant-impact player of the group as a true freshman. Rated as the No. 3 prospect in the country, Coleman is a bigger receiver at 6-foot-3 who could very easily be the most talented wideout that Auburn has had in recent years, even as a true freshman.

Alabama‘s Ryan Williams, Florida‘s LJ McCray, and Texas A&M‘s Terry Bussey join Coleman in being named instant-impact signees by College Sports Wire.
