Auburn freshman running back Tank Bigsby hard at work this spring while away from campus
Tank Bigsby should have already had a spring camp under his belt as the true freshman running back enrolled at Auburn early to get a jump start on his first season on The Plains.
Of course, that didn’t happen due to the coronavirus but not even the pandemic is going to stop the touted runner from Hogansville, Ga., from working on his craft this spring in anticipation for the fall season.
In the video below, posted by former Tiger Brad Lester, the nation’s No. 4 running back in the 2020 recruiting cycle and the top 40 overall prospect in the class goes through a series of drills designed to get him ready for his first season of action at the SEC level.
Considering the team’s leading rusher from last season, JaTarvious Whitlow, has entered the NCAA transfer portal and isn’t expected to return to Auburn in 2020, Bigsby has an opportunity to make his presence felt immediately with the Tigers next season.
But only if he puts in the work and is ready once football does return.
Clearly, Bigsby is motivated to do just that as you can see in the video below.
