Five-Star Green Highlights Big Visit Weekend

Five-star back Derrick Green and Auburn commitments such as Reuben Foster, Jeremy Johnson and Carl Lawson headline a big recruiting weekend for the Tigers as they take on the Georgia Bulldogs.

Auburn, Ala.—Five-star running back Derrick Green highlights a large and talented list of visitors expected in this weekend for the Deep South's Oldest Rivalry between Auburn and Georgia. The only an official visitor to see the Tigers, the nation's number two running back will have plenty of company in Jordan-Hare Stadium as many of Auburn's current verbal commitments as well as several top targets will be on hand to check out the atmosphere.

The country's top linebacker prospect, Auburn High's Reuben Foster is expected to be on hand like he's been for most of the Tigers' games this season. Also expected in are a pair of four-star quarterback commitments in Jeremy Johnson from Carver High in Montgomery and Jason Smith from McGill-Toolen in Mobile.

Continuing the list of who's who is one of the nation's top defensive end prospects Carl Lawson from Milton (Ga.) High. Having a monster season with 21 sacks in 10 games, Lawson has been a solid commitment to the Tigers since the spring and will be making his second visit to Jordan-Hare Stadium this season.

Making his first trip to Auburn for a game this season after checking out the Tigers vs. Clemson in the Georgia Dome, linebacker commitment Trey Johnson will visit on Saturday and is expected to visit Penn State, Ohio State and USC along with Florida State before signing day.

Another pair of commitments expected to be on campus Saturday are wide receiver Earnest Robinson from Pinson Valley and linebacker Cameron Toney from Huntsville. Robinson is coming off his top game of the season last week with over 100 yards in a win over Briarwood Christian. Toney has come back from a nasty ankle injury suffered early in the year to lead his team into the Class 6A playoffs.

One of the more interesting expected visitors this weekend is Parker Cothren from Hazel Green. A Purdue commitment, the 6-5, 265-pounder had a strong game last week in a win over Huntsville and could see his recruiting take off late in the process.

Auburn is looking for help on the interior offensive line and one of the players getting a look by the Tigers is Cameron Ruff from Jesuit High in Tampa. Currently a commitment to South Florida, the 6-4, 280 Ruff is a three-star prospect by and has the athleticism to play some defensive end for his team. This will be Ruff's first visit to Auburn. Also expected in is another South Florida commitment, offensive lineman Cameron Fraser from Central-Phenix City. Fraser plays tackle for the Red Devils.

Several talented underclassmen are also expected to visit this weekend led by do-everything athlete Ronnie  Clark from Calera and physical linebacker Shaun Hamilton from Carver High in Montgomery. Both will be among the top players in Alabama next season and have been frequent visitors to Auburn.

Another top player in the 2014 class expected in is wide receiver Demarre Kitt from Sandy Creek High in Tyrone, Ga. An early commitment to Georgia, Kitt has backed off that verbal and is now looking at Clemson, USC and several others in addition to Auburn.

A visitor for Auburn's game against LSU earlier this season, big Terronne Prescod from Columbia (Ga.) High in Decatur is expected back on the Auburn campus this weekend. He is expected to be one of the top offensive line prospects in Georgia next year along with fellow visitor Andrew Marshall from West Forsythe High in Cumming.
