Griffin, Ga.--After signing a total of five offensive lineman in 2015, the Tigers took a lighter load up front in this recruiting cycle. However, Auburn opted for quality over quantity this time around with four-star lineman Brodarious Hamm a player that is capable of playing multiple positions for new Auburn OL Coach Herb Hand.
Hamm, who checks in at a whopping 6-5, 322, was one of Gus Malzahn’s earlier commitments in this class after flipping his from his original decision to be a Tennessee Volunteer. The Spalding High School player was recruited by former offensive line coach J.B. Grimes. Now, Hamm is looking forward to getting to know Hand better when he gets to Auburn.
“He seems like he cares about his players,” Hamm said. “He’s more than a coach, he tries to be a father figure to his players. He has a relationship with you on the field and off the field. He seems like a good coach and I’ve heard a lot about him.”
Expected to play guard for the Tigers, Hamm could also be a right tackle in Auburn's offense because of his combination of size and athleticism.
