Nothing surprising about his pick. He would pick uat to win a natty in anything.
I lived in Houston County for almost 8 years as a civilian working for the AF at Robins AFB. Houston, pronounced like Howston instead of Huston, now has 3 high schools and auburn has had players from all 3.
2 years left according to another article here. "Caylin Newton, the younger brother of Tigers great Cam Newton, committed to AU on Friday as a graduate transfer from Howard. He will have two seasons of immediate eligibility."
He has 2 years of eligibility left according to a previous article on SDS.
It hurt Nix. He did much better in high school where the talent level is not nearly as good as a D1 power 5 team. The starters in D1 P5 are usually the best high school players so the overall talent level is much higher than in high school. Nix improved with each game so if they play college football this year, he should continue to improve, especially since Gus lets his QBs work with outside QB coaches.
He is a graduate transfer which means he already has a degree. He also has 2 years of eligibility remaining so shouldn't be a GA next year.
It said in 2018 he rushed for 504 yards but later says in 25 games at Howard he rushed for 380 yards. He must have been sacked a lot in his other year. Speaking of sacks, college football should handle sacks the same way as the NFL. Have sacks count against team passing yards instead of against the QB's rushing yards. If they want it to be against the QB, it should be against his passing yards but since most sacks are due to poor blocking, it should be against team passing yards. It shouldn't count as anything against the QB.
Nobody can afford him. He wants a 5 year 100 million dollar contract.
I hate to say this but SEC coaches need to learn from Dabo. They haven't had a flip since 2014 because he has a rule that once you commit, you don't visit other schools unless you decommit. It seems to be working well for him along with the nattys and championship game appearances.
But does he see a path to the NFL through UT? uat has a lot of defensive line players in the league.
6-5 220? He is one skinny kid. As an Auburn fan I hate to say this but he will probably end up signing with the uat.
Not for Auburn fans. Lol
In his first season as HC at AU, they made it to the FBS Championship game.
Nowhere to go but up especially with recruiting.
They has a 5* sign OT who left after 2 years because he couldn't become a starter against those lower ranked players. There are 2 4* OL who should be able to play this year after recovering from a torn ACL in one case and cancer in the other one.
Maybe Auburn can get some players from Central to sign with them now.
It is amazing how many 3* OL players have committed to Power 5 universities.
If they sitout, should Dinson and Thomas sit out as well. Dinson said the only reason he came back was because Brown did.
