Underclassmen Highlight Auburn Camp

Auburn will have well over 500 prospects on hand Saturday for the final one-day camp for the Tigers.

Auburn, Ala.--With football season just around the corner Auburn will hold its final major football camp for 2013 on Saturday with prospects from across the Southeast expected to visit the Plains to work with the Tigers' coaching staff.

Already with more 300 pre-registered campers and as many as 300 more expected on Saturday, Auburn's practice fields will be packed with prospects throughout the day.

On offense Auburn is set at quarterback in both 2014 and 2015 with Sean White and Tyler Queen committing in the last week, but there are more spots still left to fill on that side of the ball moving forward. While many of the upcoming seniors are already off the board, there are a load still looking to turn some heads late in the summer. Many are expected in Auburn this weekend along with a talented group of underclassmen.

Expected to be in attendance watching are commitments Josh Casher, DeShaun Davis, Chris Laye, Kamryn Pettway, Nick Ruffin, Justin Thornton and Tre Williams. There will be several players in that group who will be looking to make an impact on while on the Auburn campus.

At the running back position Deonta Moore from Huntsville High is a talented player who is hoping to earn more attention later in the recruiting process. The same is true of McAdory standout Garian Bradley. Getting a long look from Mississippi State, Bradley could be a fullback on the next level. A player that has an offer from Arkansas State and is getting looks from bigger programs, Jarvis Cooper from West Memphis, Ark., High is an interesting player and could be a fit at fullback.

Several talented underclassmen are expected to be in attendance as well including Madison Academy teammates Kerryon Johnson and Malik Miller as well as 2016 back Kamauri Avery from Wadley. Avery is a 5-10, 220 sophomore.

From Bob Jones High in Madison, speedy receiver Jonathan Rice is a player to watch for 2015 as well. From outside the state senior Jamal Adjamah is getting some looks out of Southridge High in Miami and is expected to visit along with several teammates including wide receiver Wayne Peterson.

Expected to be one of the top running backs in the region in two years, 2016 standout Shakum Chisolm is already hearing from SEC schools including Auburn and South Carolina. At 6-2, 197 and just heading into his sophomore year, he'll be one to watch down the road. Also looking for help at the fullback position down the road, Jimmy Martin from Orangewood, Fla., High is a player worth keeping an eye on as well if he performs well for the coaches.

There is almost no such thing as too early any more when you're talking about football recruiting and while the Tigers have a pair of future quarterbacks already on board Malzahn and company are already looking at 2016 prospects. One player who has a chance to shine on Saturday is Ervin Barrett. The 6-2, 175 sophomore played in a reserve role last season, but will be a player to watch this fall in the Orlando area.

Other offensive players to watch for on Saturday include Daquan Guice from Barbour County, tight end E.J. Moss from Ashville, 2016 WR Spencer Perry from Newnan, Ga., 2015 offensive linemen Marquel Harrell and Denzell Boulware from Creekside High in Georgia, upcoming junior Chuma Edoga from McEachern High in Powder Springs, Ga., Ben Johnson from Cullman, Daniel Keith from Florence and sleeper 2015 tackle Logan Stenberg from James Clemons High in Madison.

Youth will be served on the defensive side of the ball with talented 2015 defensive tackle Juantavius Johnson from Lincoln High expected to camp again with the Tigers. Already with an offer, he could be a big addition to the next class if he decides to pull the trigger.

Another talented 2015 camper is Terry Godwin from Callaway High in Hogansville, Ga. Capable of playing wide receiver if needed, Godwin is expected to be one of the top cornerbacks in the country next year. The same is true of Jamarkus Sims from Dothan. Already with a Kentucky offer, the 6-1, 210 junior could be a perfect fit at the "star" position in the 2015 class for the Tigers.

From Cardinal Gibbons High in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., talented 2015 defensive end Richard McIntosh and safety Joe Riggins are expected to camp at Auburn along with 2014 teammates Devon Priester (DT) and Dion McIntosh (WR/RB).

Another group of teammates who will camp with the Tigers are a trio of cornerbacks from Heritage High in Conyers, Ga. Obe Fortune and Jamaal Odom are both 2015 prospects while teammate Anthony Stanley will just be a sophomore. Defensive back MVP at the Atlanta Camp in June, Deantre Turman from Creekside also has a chance to earn an offer in the 2015 class with a strong day of camp.

In addition to Johnson from Lincoln, Auburn is expecting a pair of talented 2015 defensive tackles from Georgia as well. From Sprayberry High in Marietta, 6-4, 275 Bailey Sharp is an impressive young lineman. The same is true of 6-3, 270 Griffin Landrum from South Forsythe High in Cumming.
