State of the class: Auburn recruits like what they see so far for 2014

In a three-week span in late July and early August, Auburn brought in six of its current 14 current commitments for 2014.

Don’t expect any kind of flurry like that again any time between now and national signing day, but don’t be surprised by a nice pickup or two before February. It probably won’t be on the level of how LSU or Alabama will finish, but the Tigers will pick up another star or two. The linebacker position is definitely one for some growth.

Currently, Auburn commits are happy about the 3-0 start–matching last year’s win total.

“The way they have started off their season is very important to me because I believe in Auburn and they believe in me,” Auburn tight end commit Chris Laye told Saturday Down South. “They have shown me that they can win a national championship and bounce back from a losing season. It will be my turn to show them what I can do when I get there in January.”

Junior college transfer Derrick Moncrief will be another one of those four-star prospects to help restock the roster. He is rated one of the top 10 JUCO prospects in the nation.

“Everyone wants to be apart of a great tradition and we want to turn the program back in the right direction for a national title,” Moncrief told SDS. “Coach Gus (Malzahn) is just a down to earth person not just a coach he’s a person I can talk to about anything.”
