With The Opening taking place next week in Oregon the center of the college football recruiting world moves to the West Coast and there will be plenty of Auburn targets taking part in the event. Over two dozen top players from around the country still have interest in the Tigers and here are just a few of them to keep an eye on.
Calvin Ashley--The No. 1 offensive tackle in the 2017 class, Ashley is already committed to Auburn.
Markail Benton--Another top 2017 prospect, Benton is a teammate of Auburn commitment John Broussard at Central-Phenix City.
A.J. Brown--One of the most physical receivers in the country, Brown will be tough to get out of Miss. State’s yard.
Derrick Brown--With the need for defensive tackles in this class Brown is a top target for the Tigers.
Sam Bruce--One of the quickest receivers in the country, Bruce has mentioned Auburn and getting a visit is a must for Auburn’s chances.
Devin Bush--The son of a former FSU standout, Bush has a strong relationship with Travaris Robinson.
Jamel Cook--Perhaps the top defensive back in the country, the FSU commitment is wanted as a corner by the Tigers and that could have an impact down the road.
Nate Craig--Auburn is still very much in the mix for the 5-star wide receiver prospect.
Ben Davis--While Alabama is definitely the team to beat Davis likes the Tigers as well.
Kyle Davis--A physical wide receiver that was once committed to South Carolina, Davis would be a great fit in Auburn’s offense.
Stephen Davis Jr.--The son of former Auburn star RB Stephen Davis, he’s committed to the Tigers but has a ton of teams coming after him including in-state Clemson and South Carolina.
Landon Dickerson--A recent visitor to Auburn that has the Tigers on his list, Dickerson is capable of playing tackle or guard on the next level.
Devin Duvernay--Speedster Devin Duvernay made a visit to Auburn has the Tigers on his list, but with offers from all over the country he has plenty of options.
Michael Eletise--A physical offensive lineman from Hawaii, Eletise has Auburn on his list but will be tough to get away from the West Coast
Rashan Gary--Ranked as the nation’s top prospect, Gary visited Auburn in June and is expected back on the Plains in July as well.
Mecole Hardman--Perhaps the top all-around athlete in the South, the five-star Hardman could play wide receiver or defensive back on the next level.
Elijah Holyfield--At one time he may have been considered an Auburn lean, but with Malik Miller onboard Holyfield may be headed for the Bulldogs.
Antwuan Jackson--Auburn is definitely one of the teams to beat for the athletic Jackson, but Ohio State is trying to make a push.
D.K. Metcalf--Another big, physical wide receiver prospect, Metcalf is committed to his father’s alma mater of Ole Miss but Auburn is keeping in touch.
Isaac Nauta--Committed to Florida State, Nauta is a true pass-catching tight end and would be a great addition for the Tigers with big Landon Rice already onboard.
Jawon Pass--Already with Woody Barrett committed, Auburn could add a second quarterback in this class and Pass is one of the few guys still left on the board.
Elijah Stove--Dynamic receiver Eli Stove is solidly committed to Auburn and should be fun to watch in Oregon.
Kareem Walker--Rated the nation’s top running back, Walker visited Auburn for Big Cat Weekend but is committed to Ohio State.
Nigel Warrior--The son of former Tennessee and NFL standout Dale Carter, Warrior has offers from all over the country.
Devin White--Another talented two-way player, White could be a big running back or a physical linebacker on the next level.
Jaymest Williams--Yet another 2017 prospect, Williams could be one of the top cover corners in next year’s class.
