News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

John Reed-USA TODAY Sports

WHEW BOY, A LOT HAPPENED. And that's just on the season finale of Game of Thrones, which might have been the best episode of any TV show ever. Of all time. But, hey, a lot of stuff happened around Auburn, too.

BASEBALL

Hey, remember Josh Anthony? That JUCO player who we were excited was coming to Auburn and then heartbroken because the Braves upped their offer? Well, the Braves deal fell apart due to some salary cap issues or some such. So, he's going to be a Tiger, again! Wooo!!!

BASKETBALL

Want to read a profile of a new Tiger? Here's a bit on incoming transfer LaRon Smith.

Austin Wiley had a big of a down-game in Game 2 of the FIBA 2017 U17 tournament, but he bounced back with another double-double against Egypt in another rout.

TENNIS

Auburn's Men's Tennis team announced their new coach over the weekend. Bobby Reynolds, formerly of Oklahoma, will be taking over the Men's team.

SOFTBALL

Well, the rich just get richer. Auburn Softball picked up a commitment from the top softball player in the 2017 class, Taylon Snow. Oh, and her sister, from Washington, who made it to a Super Regional but were knocked out by Alabama, is transferring to Auburn, too.

FOOTBALL

The 2016 recruiting class wasn't finished, it appears. Months after national signing day, the Tigers picked up a 4* All-Purpose Back who was a former Baylor signee. He was released from his LOI by Baylor following the recent Briles firing and that sad (not sad for Briles and Baylor; sad for those victimized who weren't treated fairly) situation.

Oh, hey, the 2017 class picked up a commitment, too. The brother of #Legatron, Anders Carlson, the #2 place kicker in the 2017 class, announced his commitment to Auburn Saturday night.

The Tigers did lose one player over the weekend, though. A former 4* defensive-end is transferring to a Junior College for the 2016 campaign.

The VIP 20 is onto a newcomer at #15. A freshmen defensive lineman who made quite a name for himself during spring practice and during the A-Day game. Oh, and they have #14, too. An offensive linemen who played Center last year, and looks to be playing at one of the tackle positions in 2016.
