Auburn Football Recruiting: Busy Week on The Plains

(College and Magnolia)
It’s been a pretty quiet summer on the recruiting trail for Auburn, at least in the verbal commitment department. Auburn went two months without a commitment before Shedrick Jackson broke the drought last Monday (this is about to get confusing). Auburn has now had two commits in two weeks. Jackson’s commitment did not come as much of a surprise as the talented Hoover wideout had been an Auburn lean for some time. Quindarious Monday’s commitment Tuesday night was the exact opposite.
The talented 6’3” safety had Auburn as his leader all the way up until his “dream school,” Clemson, offered. After that, it just seemed like it was a matter of when not if Monday would announce for the national champs. Monday even admitted as much Tuesday night as reported by Benjamin Wolk over at SECCountry:
“I was going to commit to Clemson on the 21st, but I saw what coach [Kevin] Steele had to say. They really brought it out of me,” Monday said. “Most coaches are not going to keep it real with you like that. They told me the real life of recruiting. Coach Steele is the only one that did that. It really touched me.”
I don’t know what Kevin Steele said but he needs to keep saying it to recruits. After Monday’s visit on Tuesday (not confusing at all), he decided to pull the trigger and shock everyone by choosing the orange and blue Tigers, something that did not sit well with Clemson fans. It should sit very well with Auburn fans as Monday helps fill a huge need in this recruiting class and will have a very real chance at cracking the safety rotation in 2018. It should also be noted that Monday is friends with Justin Fields as they both play on Cam Newton’s 7v7 team. Just a fun fact.
Auburn might not be done either. Two names to keep an eye on over the coming weeks are 4* WR Matthew Hill and 4* LB Michael Harris. Yes, I know I have been beating the “Hill is going to commit to Auburn soon” drum for probably over a month now but it seems like a decision could be near. He’s visiting today with 5* QB Justin Fields and 4* WR Kearis Jackson (more on that later) and I wouldn’t be shocked if he finally decided to pull the trigger. Even if he doesn’t today, it’s still looking like Auburn might land the big time wideout in the very near future. For more details, go to College and Magnolia.
