News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

Not much to talk about, today, honestly. Oh well. Here's what we've got for you!

BASEBALL

Baseball recruiting news? Baseball recruiting news! One of the top players in the state of Alabama, a great pitcher and hitter, has flipped his commitment from Alabama to Auburn. That's a pretty big win for Butch Thompson.

FOOTBALL

Auburn is going to need to sign some great offensive linemen in the 2017 class. Right now they have a 5* and now a very high 4* at the offensive tackle position committed. That recruiting battle was huge for Gus & Company to win, given the circumstances of the player's fandom and who was pursuing him.

The freshmen wide receivers are "progressing," which is good news to hear. As I've said, numerous times, and will say numerous more times between now and football season, Auburn is going to have to get production from the freshman receivers in order to be successful.

Tom Green, formerly of the Opelika-Auburn News and now with AL.com, is starting their "VIP 20" to discuss the 20 most important people who will determine whether this is a good or bad season for the Tigers. #20 is a running back returning from some offseason surgery.
