The football team wasn't the only team on campus who had a big day, yesterday! The soccer team also signed a pretty big class.
Multiple Tigers have been named as players to watch for the Player of the Year award.
So, Auburn has a lot of new players, now. We have a couple of ways you can quickly check out the stories surrounding signing day. First, there's the Signing Day HQ article with links to all of the commits. There is also the Story Stream, which is pretty much the same thing.

Two of Auburn's 2016 signees - who have been battling cancer - may be cleared to participate in Spring Practice. That would be an awesome development.
AUNerd wrote a FanPost wrapping up the Auburn recruiting class. You should definitely check it out; it's a pretty comprehensive wrap-up.
