Who will the Tigers land on the biggest day of the recruiting year?
With Wednesday being National Signing Day for the 2013 recruiting class, we’ve put our heads together and come up with a few predictions on where a few key Auburn targets may be faxing their Letters of Intent. The Tigers are currently sitting at 20 commitments and looking to add more. With up to seven more spots to fill, will Wednesday be a BOOM! or a bust?

Will there be surprises? It's recruiting! Of course there will! Who will the surprises be? Taj Williams could be a surprise signee, but would he qualify? Devondre Seymour is another with grade concerns, but he may choose between Auburn and Georgia. Could Tarean Folston or Derrick Green still be an option? Not likely, but ...
Signing Day will be a good day for Auburn. To suffer through a 3-9 season and a coaching change where the entire staff is replaced and still threaten for, or land, a top-10 recruiting class would be incredible. Gus Malzahn and the rest of the coaches have filled team needs and done so with quality talent. There will be players in this class who can come in next fall and make an immediate impact.
We'll have full recruiting coverage Wednesday. Make sure you check back early and often for all your Signing Day fixes.
