Rewind: 4-star DB high on AU

AUBURN REMAINS IN GOOD SHAPE: Defensive back Travis Blanks from North Florida Christian in Tallahassee, Fla., continues to list Auburn among his top schools. Blanks, who is on track to graduate early and enroll at a school in January, currently has seven schools that stand out. He wants to cut that down to a top three and visit all three this fall before making a decision.

Blanks is a top AU target.

“I have about 30 offers,” Blanks told 247Sports. “I haven’t narrowed it down. But Auburn, Alabama, Georgia, Clemson, LSU, Ohio State and TCU would be the main ones I’m looking at. There’s really not an offer I could get that would change my top schools.”

BIG-TIME OL TO VISIT AUBURN: 4-star offensive lineman Evan Goodman from Lakeland (Fla.) High is planning to visit several schools this summer including Auburn. Goldman, who has already visited all three top Florida schools, plans a trip to Ohio State June 21, Notre Dame June 26, and both Auburn and Alabama in July. Goodman plans to narrow his list to a top five this summer, go on official visits in the fall and graduate high school in December to enroll in January.

“I don’t know where my heart is going to be for sure,” Goodman told 247Sports. “I don’t want to make a decision and regret it later. I’m making sure that I take my time so I don’t end up making any mistakes.”

COMBO GUARD LOOKING AT AUBURN: 4-star 2012 combo guard Jordan Price from Southwest Dekalb in Atlanta, Ga., has offers from Auburn, Georgia and Georgia Tech and is considering Memphis and Miami. Proce, 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds, has been a star on the AAU and camp circuit this summer.

“I think my strength is taking it to the basket,” Price told 247Sports. “I’m bigger than most two guards and most one guards and I like to post and just get my team involved with passing. I’m a combo guard but whatever position my coach needs me to play I’ll play.”

TONS OF POTENTIAL: Just two months after taking up the game of football, defensive end Francis Kallon from Central Gwinnett in Lawrenceville, Ga., has committed to Georgia Tech over a dozen other scholarship offers. Kallon, 6-foot-5 and 242 pounds, is a native of London, England. Offers stating pouring in from schools like Arkansas, Virginia Tech, Virginia, Vanderbilt, Illinois and Maryland after coaches saw Kallon practice this spring and Central Gwinnett coach Todd Wofford sent out video of spring drills.

“Francis is a great pickup for Georgia Tech,” Wofford told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “They’re getting a kid who No. 1 believes that academics are extremely important and values his education. He has got unlimited athletic potential in football.”
