One of the best overall athletes in this class has signed with the Tigers.

It felt like most of this cycle I was predicting 4* Buck Richard Jibunor to commit to Auburn but the Nigerian native kept us waiting. He wanted to make sure he was making the right decision and visited a number of schools. In the end, Auburn won out over Tennessee and Florida. Now he will attempt to do what his good friend Prince Tega Wanogho was able to achieve this year and that’s find a way onto the football field as an Auburn Tiger.

“Full of potential” is the best way to describe Jibunor. He’s a guy that is still learning the game but you can clearly see the raw talent he possesses. He did not face the greatest of competition in high school but won MVP at two different positions at two of the biggest camps this past summer. He lines up all over the field for his high school team and Auburn coaches this summer were fighting over who would get the talented athlete. He will start his career at the Buck spot most likely but could honestly play any of the linebacker position or flip over to offense and play tight end if needed. I have no doubt he will find his way to the field somehow in the coming seasons.

War Eagle Richard!
