Recruiting

I am still waiting to hear from Andrew Bone of Scout. Com. Andrew has told me he has been swamped with recruiting stuff as coaches try to "finish" out their classes as S would say. Hopefully will hear something by the end of the week.

Here's what I know:

Alabama is ranked third on Rivals and AU has moved up to four.

Alabama has 24 commits headlined by two, five-star commitments in defensive backs Keenan Allen and DeMarcus Milliner.

Auburn has 28 commits headlined by three  five-stars in qb Cameron Newton, OL Shon Coleman and RB Michael Dyer. The Tigers got a commit today from four-star offensive guard Eric Mack.

Alabama is still hot in pursuit of James Stone, offensive tackle out of Nashville. James fell out of the Rivals 250, so I don't know if that will change his status with Tide. He is a four-star recruit who is considering Alabama, Auburn and Vandy.

There is also a four-star out of Maryland Tide is after. Will know more when I hear from Andrew later in the week.

AU is in big with five-star rb Marcus Lattimore. It's between AU and South Carolina. He's from South Carolina, but loves Auburn. Two other players whom Auburn is heavily involved with are four-star defensive tackles Jeffrey Whitaker and Mike Thornton. Five-star wr Markeith Ambles has committed to UT, but will visit Auburn the final weekend of the month.

Exciting times as coaches try to close the deals with recruits.
