Hugh Freeze commented on how excited he is when it comes to one of his running backs. Jarquez Hunter played in his first game for Auburn in Week 2.

Freeze is looking forward to seeing what Hunter will become and for the Auburn RB to get back into the flow of things.

“I’m excited to see what he’ll become… but he left a lot of yards out there,” said Freeze. “He’s getting back in the flow of things.”

Hunter had 11 carries for 53 yards rushing in Week 2. Hunter had the most touches out of any Auburn RB in that game.

Hunter had 668 yards rushing and 7 touchdowns last season. Something to watch will be Hunter’s usage as the season goes on.

Samford comes to town in Week 3. Samford and Auburn last played in 2019, as the Tigers came out on top 52-0.

Auburn and Samford kick off Saturday at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN+.
