Despite Evans, a superb National Signing Day for Auburn
Regardless of the screw-up with local boy Rashaan Evans, Auburn had a very, very good National Signing Day.
To explain the Evans situation: five-star OLB Evans went to a local Auburn high school and it was anticipated that he would become an Auburn Tiger. So much so that Auburn put his name on their website, celebrating their victory. Well, it was a little too early, rather like Alabama fans celebrating a 2013 Iron Bowl victory. At his commitment ceremony, he opted to play for the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Anyway, it’s all in the past, because Gus Malzahn had a great haul – at prep and JUCO level.
Auburn signed the best JUCO player in the land in WR D’haquille Williams (he’s already enrolled), and they added All-American Offensive Guard Braden Smith and DE Andrew Williams. Williams will be another weapon on the defensive line – something that the National Championship finalist still desperately needs in a division where at least SOME defence is needed.
And Malzahn also signed himself a QB in Sean White, the No.2 Pocket-Passing QB in the nation, and some people are really happy with 6ft-5 TE Chris Laye, who’s enrolled early and going to give Malzahn’s offense some help in the blocking department. With the success of Auburn TEs in the past, if Laye’s a success, there will be nothing sleeper about it!
Auburn was ranked No.6 by 247 Sports
