Recently offered WR and Alabama commit Perry Thompson to visit Auburn

Auburn’s previous staff never offered four-star wide receiver and Foley native Perry Thompson.

New wide receivers coach Marcus Davis fixed that mistake on Wednesday and Thompson is now expected to visit the Plains this weekend, according to a report by Christian Clemente of Auburn Undercover.

The Tigers will have their work cut out for them to pry the prized 2024 receiver away from the Alabama Crimson Tide, who Foley committed to back on June 24, 2022, after visiting Tuscaloosa.

He is the No. 16 wide receiver and No. 94 overall recruit in the 247Sports Composite ranking for the 2024 recruiting class. He is also the No. 3 player from Alabama.

Measuring in at 6-foot-3 and 202 pounds he was Foley’s leading receiver as a junior, catching 87 passes for 1,059 yards and nine touchdowns in 11 games. He also recorded two interceptions as a defender.

Auburn currently has two commits in the 2024 class, four-star quarterback Adrian Posse and four-star cornerback A’Mon Lane.
