A four-star prospect out of Archer (Ga.) High, Davis recently received an offer from Auburn and has long had the Tigers as one of his top teams since camping on the Plains the summer before his junior season. He’s not the only talented player from his team expected in this weekend as talented safety Dylan Singleton will make the trip over as will offensive tackle E.J. Price and linebacker Donta Evans.
A talented safety that could also play cornerback, Singleton is a player that is high on Auburn’s board. At 5-11, 185, he’s just the type of player that gives a defensive secondary some flexibility, a must for Will Muschamp’s system.
That’s just the type of thing that 2016 commitment Stephen Davis Jr. brings to the table. Already committed to the Tigers, he is a four-star prospect on Scout and has the ability to play safety or outside linebacker on the next level. He’s expected to be back on the Auburn campus this weekend to spend time with the Auburn coaching staff.
With the need for big wide receivers still an important one for the Tigers, Josh Imatorbhebhe from North Gwinnett High is expected to visit after a very good junior season. With his brother signing with Florida in February it could make the Gators a strong contended for Josh, but he’s made several trips to Auburn in the past and likes the Tigers. A player he’s familiar with, 2017 prospect Tyler Smith from McEachern High in Powder Springs, Ga. is also expected in and could be one of the top players in the country at his position two years from now.
A pair of big guys from the Peach State expected in are 2016 offensive lineman Chris Barnes and 2017 defensive tackle Aubrey Solomon from Lee County High in Leesburg, Ga. A three-star guard, Barnes was impressive at last summer’s Auburn camp. Expected to be one of the top defensive tackles in the country, Solomon is already rated a four-star prospect and has offers from Kentucky, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, North Carolina and South Carolina.
From in-state there are several players expected to visit that will be players to watch in the 2016 and 2017 classes. A talented linebacker from Jemison, P.J. Blue has picked up some big-time offers in recent weeks and is among the top players on Auburn’s early board at the position because of his athleticism.
One of the top programs in the state, Leeds has a big group expected to visit led by athlete Tadarryl Marshall and running back Tre Nation. Marshall has picked up offers from Alabama and Georgia Tech early in the process and could play quarterback, wide receiver or defensive back on the next level.
Also from the Birmingham area, 2016 quarterback Tyrrell Pigrome from Clay-Chalkville will visit Auburn this weekend after a monster junior season for the Cougars when he led them to the 6A state title and won the 6A Back of the Year as well. Despite his size he’s a player that is worth giving a look at quarterback. From McAdory, 2017 athlete Malcolm Askew has a lot of early offers and is yet another player that could wind up on either offense or defense.
Locally, outside linebacker Zo Bridges from Opelika continues to add offers to his growing list with Kentucky, Troy, Arkansas State and Southern Miss all onboard for him with more to follow. He’ll be joined by Auburn High kicker Sage Ledbetter and former Auburn teammate and current IMG Academy safety Spencer Perry as well. Perry also picked up a Southern Miss offer on Friday.
A player to keep an eye on is linebacker Erroll Thompson from Florence High. At 6-2, 241, Thompson could play linebacker, defensive end, or even H-Back on the next level. Tennessee, Missouri, Kentucky, Southern Miss and Memphis have already offered after a big junior year. The son of former Arkansas standout Bobby Joe Edmonds, B.J. Edmonds is an athlete out of St. Paul’s in Mobile and is one of the latest in a line of prospects for the Saints. He’s expected to visit with old family friend Tim Horton on Auburn’s staff.
Erroll Thompson is a big, physical player for the Falcons
