Davis: AU Recruiting Could Have Strong Finish

Auburn running back commitment Enrique Davis talks about this class of future Tigers and who could be late additions.

Lynn Haven, Fla.--Throughout the recruiting process Auburn commitment Enrique Davis talked of friendships built over the months of attending camps and taking visits to schools around the South.

For Davis players such as Bailey Woods, Michael McNeil, Lee Ziemba, Brandon Gibson and Brandon Paul have become friends during the recruiting process and he says he still talks to them almost every day.

"I talked to Mike after he committed," Davis says. "I was after him to go ahead and make his decision because I let him know it gets a lot of stuff out of your hair when you go ahead and make your decision. He knew for a fact he wanted to come to Auburn so it was good he went ahead and made the decision."

With Woods and Ziemba already committed to the Tigers and McNeil following suit this past Tuesday, Davis says that he's excited to have several friends coming with him to Auburn this summer. He also adds that he hopes his friends list isn't done quite yet.

"I talked to B.P. (Brandon Paul) and he hasn't made up his mind yet," Davis says. "I talk to him and my boy Brandon Gibson. They don't know what they want to do yet. I think we've got a real good shot with both of them."

Already rated as one of the Top 10 classes in the country by Scout.com, Auburn's signee class for 2007 could be even better after Wednesday with players such as Josh Bynes, Antoine Carter and Nick Fairley all very high on the Tigers as well as players such as Paul, Gibson, Frank Alexander and Jay Howard with Auburn on their final list. Davis says that no matter what happens from here on out he's already extremely excited about what the future holds for the Auburn program.

"It's very exciting," Davis says. "Look at all the guys like Mike and Bailey Woods and Lee Ziemba and Josh Chapman and Chaz Ramsey, it's just playmakers basically. If you look at this class there is nothing but playmakers coming in. Big time players."

As a running back the thought of running behind Auburn's offensive line class has Davis ready to get to the Plains, he says. With Ziemba, Ramsey, Ryan Pugh, Kyle Coulahan and Jared Cooper coming on board this year Davis says he can't help but be fired up about their potential for down the road.

"I'm very excited," says Davis, who was named to the Parade All-American team along with Ziemba. "I have met almost the whole offensive line and I think it's the best offensive line coming in anywhere in the country. It's a great offensive line. I'm excited to run behind them."
