Where do Tigers come from? This probably won't shock anybody, but the answer is …. Alabama, Florida and Georgia.

WAR DAMN EAGLE!
Based on the above data, it seems that CGM and team have already focused on the states have have supplied the most recruits over the last 10 years. I see a stronghold developing in AL and GA. Once our coaches start working that talent through 2-3 classes, I think we can "own" the geography. Of course, much of this will depend on how we look on the field........which I am not as much worried about as in the past. That will come.......I think sooner than later.
Auburn is in the epi center of all the great Athletes, you can drive 3 hours in any direction and find some amazing talent. CGM & co don't really have to drive that far to stockpile on talent either. I like how is going to the JUCO ranks now to fill the nees for the upcoming season instead of having to wait 3-4 years for us to be a competitive level. With talent we already have, coaching up now is the bigggest thing and I really think we have the best staff in the country to bring out the bese in every player we have. I'm not expecting us to go undefeated, but I definitely feel like there won't be anymore 42-0 games anymore. If any players are reading this, we are with you and behind you all the way, no matter what, and hope that you complete yours and my dream of holding another crystal ball soon! It's not just about football, it's about being an Auburn athlete which is a sacred and unforgettable experience you will never forget. No other school has a creed that is unique and quite like ours, being both honorable on and off the field. Believe in Auburn and LOVE it! CGM & Co can get your dreams to come true but only thru work, HARD work. Go out and put it to them!! BEAT THE H*LL OUT OF BAMA!!! lol WDE!!!

Keith - thanks for the interesting read. I was thinking that it might be cool to add percentages to each state for each class plus the percentage of the three big states to the class on top of the numbers you have listed from each state. Just a thought. Percents always mean more to me.
