Auburn’s recruiting efforts as far as quantity is slowly coming together. But, two things that head coach Bryan Harsin and other coaches have done well this cycle: bring in quality recruits and make sure that local recruits stay local.
One of those local commits, three-star cornerback JC Hart, was in attendance for Auburn’s season-opening win over Mercer on Saturday. While there, he did a short interview with Auburn Undercover’s Christian Clemente.
Hart, a product of nearby Loachapoka High School, told Clemente that he has attended many Auburn home games growing up, and used to beg his mother to take him joyriding to campus just to see Jordan-Hare Stadium.
Hart took in his first Auburn game as a commit on Saturday and says that it was an enjoyable experience.
“It’s been great,” Hart said. “I love everything about it.”
Hart was joined by fellow 2023 commits Daquayvious Sorey, karmello English, and Bradyn Joiner in Jordan-Hare Saturday. Those four took advantage of the third-quarter lightning delay by using that time to talk more to Auburn’s coaches. By spending time with current players, coaches, as well as fellow recruits, Hart says that he already feels a part of the team.
Hart has played a key role in Lochapoka’s early-season success. The Indians are currently 3-0 and have allowed just 12 points over that span. In last Friday’s win over Verbena High School, Hart recorded a 92-yard pick-six.
