Hugh Freeze is trying to build something special at Auburn and that starts with consistency.

Freeze talked with SEC Network’s Laura Rutledge about what it takes to build a consistent program. For Freeze, that starts with recruiting.

The games against Georgia and Alabama are the standard that Freeze is hoping to have at Auburn.

“We’re searching for consistency and the only way that you find that is through competition every day to the standard that you set,” said Freeze. “How do you do that? You go recruit. We’re doing really well with that, there’s obviously a few weeks left in our 1st recruiting cycle, but we can say that these 2 games are the standard right now and we’re not far off.”

Freeze is glad to have the resources of Auburn in his arsenal. He points to the Georgia and Alabama games in recruiting and looks for those who want to be difference makers.

“We need some help for sure, to create that competition and consistency in chasing a standard, but you can look at the environment that we provide at Jordan-Hare.” said Freeze. “Our support, our administration, and our resources that we have. We point directly to these 2 games in recruiting and say, ‘Look, you can be the difference maker and be a trend setter here.'”
