There's not much I can say here that the tweets don't sum up for themselves. Gus is the Coach Speak master. We know the wide receivers will have every chance to make an impact, and it's not surprising that the quarterback job is wide open.

Possibly the only interesting quote is what he had to say about the linebackers. Tre Threat is the only true linebacker in the class. Auburn pursued 5* Ben Davis, but since it was never likely he was going to come to the Plains, it appears that was more out of a feeling that maybe playing time could help them snag one of the best players in the nation. Auburn never seriously pursued any other linebackers. I think that says a lot to how they feel about those already on the team.
