Tracking the Tigers: Several Auburn commits shine in Week 3

Auburn has one of the top recruiting classes in the country and their commits continue to perform like it.

Several of Auburn’s commits had massive performances in Week 3, including quarterback pledge Walker White who bounced back from a disappointing Week 2 in dominant fashion. His team didn’t pick up the win, but Joseph Phillips continued his sensational senior season.

While they had big games, the top performer from last week’s action is Jalewis Solomon. He scored touchdowns on both sides of the ball and continued to show why Auburn’s staff worked so hard to land him.

Stats have not yet been released for J'Marion Burnette, Jayden Lewis, Martavious Collins and D'Angelo Barber but here is a look at how the rest of Auburn’s commits performed last week.
