National Signing Day – Track ‘Em Tigers Primer
Hello again and War Eagle! Here is a bit of a National Signing Day primer where we re-visit what we know along with a couple of new developments that have occurred during the past 24 hours.
Track ‘Em Tigers will be hosting the NSD Live Open Thread starting at 7:00 AM CT and will be providing updates all day until all is said and done. We enthusiastically encourage you to sign on and join in with your thoughts and comments. And I will make an indefatigable effort not to let you down!
Within the past 24 hours Auburn lost DL Ryan Johnson to Stanford and OG Matthew Tanner went from “99%” to “very likely” to “gone” as the JUCO transfer has now committed to Bowling Green. Taking the above into account, and averaged across six nationally recognized recruiting sites, places Auburn’s current rank at #12 nationally and 4th in the SEC with room to move either way, depending on NSD outcomes.
Who to watch:
Tyler Taylor – 6-2, 230 ILB is set to announce at 7:45 AM CT and it now appears he will choose between Auburn, LSU, and OK.
Markaviest “Big Cat” Bryant – 6-4, 226 DE is set to announce at 10:30 AM CT and lists Auburn, LSU, and UGA as his top three.
Tyrone Truesdell – 6-3, 325 DT has not set a time to announce but it appears he is down to either Auburn or Florida.
The remainder of those committed to Auburn as well as those already enrolled follow…
