It’s Miller Time
Expected to choose between the Tigers, Florida State, Alabama and others, Miller is a complete football player who can run between the tackles as a tailback, catch the ball out of the backfield and also is a good linebacker.
Offered by Auburn early in March of 2013 as a freshman for the Mustangs, Miller has been a driving force behind three consecutive state championships for Madison Academy. Playing alongside 2015 Auburn signee Kerryon Johnson, the two have developed a strong bond over the years and that could come into play when the time comes for him to make his decision as could his relationship with Auburn RB Coach Tim Horton.
Summer Of The Young Quarterbacks
Auburn already has a commitment from 2016 four-star quarterback Woody Barrett, but the Tigers aren’t slowing their recruiting at the position with several top-notch younger players making stops through Auburn the last few days. It started on Sunday when 2018 talents Jack West from Saraland and James Foster from Sidney Lanier in Montgomery both threw well at Auburn’s camp.
On Monday fellow 2018 quarterback Joey Gatewood made a visit to Auburn and left impressed by the Tigers. Likely a four-star or five-star by the time he’s doing playing high school football, Gatewood has Cam Newton similarities in terms of size and athleticism, something that makes Auburn’s offense a fit for him.
Tuesday the visiting quarterback was 2017 prospect Jake Fromm from Houston County in Warner Robins, Ga. A four-star prospect, Fromm has offers from all over the country already and is a physical player. Also a talented baseball player, he is a player the Tigers are keeping in close contact with from the 2017 class along with Opelika’s Jake Bentley.
Huffman High School is a program that looks to be back on the rise in the Birmingham area and it has the talent to show that this season. Several of those players were in Auburn on Tuesday to work out for the Tigers’ coaches and did a good job of impressing. Perhaps the top player of the day was Demetrius Davis. Ranked as a running back in the 2016 class by Scout.com, Davis worked out as a defensive back for Travaris Robinson and did a good job working through the drills for the first time. Throw in a 40-yard dash time of 4.45 seconds and he could be a player worth keeping an eye on.
A 6-2, 225 linebacker, Terrance Harris also worked out for the Tigers. Still waiting on an Auburn offer, he has Georgia, Florida and several others on his early list. A massive defensive tackle, Kurtis Beaman has offers from top schools such as Cincinnati, Ole Miss and North Carolina already, but has work to do if he hopes to get an offer from the Tigers.
Just a 2018 prospect, defensive lineman Allen Love is definitely a name to watch for the Vikings. Heading into his sophomore season, the 6-1 1/2 250 defensive lineman has the size and athleticism to be an SEC level prospect in two years.
