News and notes from the Auburn corners of the internet.

#2 WR in the SEC for 2015 according to someone at AL.com. I think the number on his jersey is more representative of his status

AUBURN FOOTBALL

Remember that article yesterday where Auburn was listed as having only the fifth best quarterback situation heading into 2015? Well, now she's back to say that Auburn's Duke Williams is the second best returning wide receiver in the SEC behind Pharoh Cooper. That analysis has to be based purely on the numbers they put up last year. Duke is projected to be the #1 WR in the nation next season. Soooo...

On the defensive side of the ball, AL.com looks at the cornerback situation and says the race is wide open for one spot. Jonathan Jones has the second spot locked down at the moment (though that could always change).

We're getting down to the final hours of the 2015 recruiting cycle. Sunday night begins a dead period for recruiting before signing day on Wednesday. Auburn will have a Signing Day Show on for six hours of the day able to be watched on both AuburnTigers.com and WatchESPN.

Auburn's new defensive coordinator could be the cog that makes Auburn's 2015 class while absolutely breaking Florida's.

One recruit who bears watching on the defensive side of the ball is Jordan Colbert. He's almost a jack-of-all-trades on the defensive side of the ball who be an edge rusher, linebacker, or safety. He's also been one of Auburn's biggest recruiters this cycle. He's made numerous unofficial visits to recruit big players. He's already on his way to becoming one of my favorite players, and that's before you get into the fact (that I've often stated) that he's the first player Auburn has snagged from my hometown of Griffin, Ga in my memory.

AUBURN BASKETBALL

The ladies dropped another game last night to Arkansas in Fayetteville. They are winless in the SEC, this season. Their next shot at changing that will come Sunday afternoon in College Station, TX against Texas A&M.

The men will play their earliest game of the season with an 11am CDT tip against Tennessee in Knoxville on Saturday. They look to break the four game losing streak and pick up their first road victory of the season against Bruce Pearl's former team.
