Who Will be The Big Cats at Big Cat?

Auburn Quarterback Kiehl Frazier is one of 37 players to ink with the Tigers on National Signing Day after having attended Auburn's annual Big Cat Weekend.

This weekend Auburn will be hosting their fourth Big Cat recruiting weekend. It's a time for some of the nation's top prospects to visit The Plains. It's all about Auburn football and it's not about Auburn football.

That's exactly what makes the experience so unique for the players who attend. Most college visits take place during a school's spring or season football game. Consequently those visits are all about business.

Big Cat is about building relationships - relationships between Auburn and the recruits, between Auburn and the parents, and between the recruits with each other. The social event will include games, food, and lots of fun activities for the student athletes.

Recruiting Coordinator Coach Curtis Luper said. "Not anyone else in the country gets these many unofficial visits when it's not attached to a spring game or a camp. The reason it is popular is because kids know it's not going to be any football whatsoever, not unless it's someone here for the first time, and only then those guys will get a small introduction to Auburn football."

The school has not released a list of the attendees but judging by past Big Cats the number will probably be close to 30. Of course, any recruit that wishes to commit this weekend will be welcomed but that's not expected.

What is expected is the bonds that will be built this weekend will pay dividends next February on National Signing Day.

Some of the past signees with Auburn that are Big Cat alums are Zeke Pike, Kiehl Frazier, Gabe Wright, Jake Holland, Reese Dismukes, and Jeffery Whitaker.

All total there have been 37 recruits to sign with the Tigers that had bonded with the coaches on Big Cat Weekend. Wonder who will be the Big Cats from 2012?
