247Sports national recruiting analyst Barton Simmons breaks down Auburn's latest commitment.
While everyone is busy slobberin' all over themselves about Gus going or staying, this article brings to mind just what we have in the rest of our staff. I understand why we all want to keep Gus, but he's no more of a one-man-show than Cam was this year. It takes the entire group. Gus could call the greatest plays at just the perfect moment, but if there are sub-par athletes trying to run those plays it doesn't really matter. You know, when folks start feeling under-appreciated or neglected--regardless of reason--those openings on staffs at Texas, UF, Miami, etc., look very inviting.
Still a lot of time before signing day. LSU & fans are only going to turn up the pressure now that he has made a verbal commitment.
To say this kid doesn't have any bad weight, think about what he will look like a year from now after coach Yox gets a hold of him. If he doesn't start next year, he will be in the rotation at least if for nothing else then to run block. Pass blocking isn't something that is learned over night but Grimes will get him there, I am sure of that. This kid has all the potential in the world if he has the kind of work ethic this staff thinks he has.
Our coaching staff is working LIGHTS OUT on recruiting to build on the foundation they have already laid....The BCS Championship game will have all uncommited atheletes eyes on Auburn...Is there a bigger recruiting tool than that!!....Kids will be saying.."I want to be part of that"....So let's get on the train and keep rolling....
