Boom! Tigers Land 4-Star Quarterback Bo Nix!

AU now has the centerpiece of their 2019 recruiting class.

Bo Nix’s Twitter:

If there is one player in the 2019 class that is a must get for this Auburn coaching staff it is 4* QB Bo Nix. Auburn just got him.

Nix is the son of former Auburn great Patrick Nix who threw for almost 5,000 yards and over 30 touchdowns in his career. Since then, the elder Nix has joined the coaching ranks and this past season lead Pinson Valley to their first ever state title and an undefeated season. His son Bo was a major reason why as the young man completed 306 of his 472 pass attempts for 4,446 yards and 56 touchdowns. He only threw 7 picks and TWENTY of those passing touchdowns came in the playoffs. Oh and Nix put up those numbers despite missing four games with a lower leg injury.

I cannot overstate how important a commitment this is for Auburn. Quarterback is going to be a major position of need in 2019 once Jarrett Stidham more than likely goes pro. The Tigers have two guys I really like in Malik Willis and Joey Gatewood on board but as we have seen in the past, nothing is a sure thing at quarterback so you better have options. That’s exactly what the Tigers will have in 2019 with three outstanding young signal callers battling for the starting spot. Don’t be surprised if Nix ends up the victor, dude is that good.


Scouting Report

Bo Nix is an elite quarterback prospect. He can make almost any throw and make it accurately. Not only does he have a live arm but he’s capable of ripping off a 50+ yard run as well. I personally love the way he handles himself in the pocket. He always keeps his eyes down field but is also able to avoid pressure, step up and make throws. He also excels throwing on the run which is a big part of Auburn’s offense. I personally believe he’s the best QB prospect in this class and if he was 1-2 inches taller would already be ranked in the top 10 overall. He’s seriously that good and should make the 2019 QB race fun to watch. If you have a chance to see Pinson Valley play next year, then put on your best Auburn gear and go watch this kid ball. He won’t disappoint.

The Class

Auburn is off to a roaring start in the 2019 class. They already had 4* WR George Pickens on board but now with a guy like Nix, I wouldn’t be surprised to see this class really take off. I fully expect Nix to be the leader of this 2019 class and a guy that attracts more elite talent to play with him. There’s a good chance he ends up a 5* before it’s all said and done. Him and Pickens will make a fun tandem to watch in the future.

War Eagle Bo!
