News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

Want an update on some of Auburn's players in the summer leagues? The official site has a story on two of them who ended up in Ohio.

FOOTBALL

In great news, Brodarius Hamm, one of Auburn's two signees from the 2016 cycle who were diagnosed with cancer, is now enrolled at Auburn. It's still going to be at least a year, maybe two, before he'll be back to playing football, but it's just great news that he's in school.

The VIP 20 is on #9, a senior wide receiver who is looking for a big year and to be the leader of the wide receiver unit.

Another senior who is hoping for a big final campaign is Josh Holsey. Holsey has dealt with so many setbacks in his career at Auburn with his injuries. If he can stay healthy, he'll be a major part of the Auburn defense this season.

CBSSports.com is featuring some 2017 NFL Draft prospects, and yesterday they had a profile of Auburn defensive back Jonathan "Rudy" Ford. Ford has been the Tigers' leading tackler for the last two seasons.

How tough is Auburn's 2016 schedule? The "average" team would lose 8 games against that schedule according to SECcountry.com. That's rough. If Auburn manages to come through that schedule with a good record, then Malzahn will have done an excellent job this year.
