In the 2018 signing class the Tigers loaded up with quality wide receivers in Matthew Hill, Seth Williams, Anthony Schwartz and Shedrick Jackson. Already in the 2019 class, Auburn has one of the fastest rising wideouts in the rankings in George Pickens. Auburn’s looking to keep this nice run of landing top WR talent going in the 2020 class. They are off to a strong start.
Today, in front of his high school classmates, 4* WR Kobe Hudson announced that he plans to be an Auburn Tiger. The 6’2” 185 lb playmaker out of Lagrange, GA has long been a Tiger lean but today made it official. Hudson chose Auburn over some top programs such as Alabama, Georgia and Florida State.
Hudson can do it all at the wide receiver spot. He’s got great length, outstanding hands, big time jumping ability and is a smooth route runner. While not necessarily a burner, he’s got that 2nd gear he can hit in the open field and pull away from defenders. Hudson can also play DB and isn’t afraid of contact. The Tigers though want him on the offensive side of the ball where they can let his playmaking ability to shine. This dude is an elite talent at wide receiver.
It’s obviously early but hard not to be excited about the Tigers’ start to the 2020 recruiting class. Auburn has a pair of Troup County players committed, both having a chance to finish as top 100 talents. Expect plenty of big time programs to come hard after the pair over the next two years, specifically Georgia, but both seem to be very solid to Auburn. Recruiting starts earlier and earlier each recruiting cycle and Auburn is off to a strong start in next year’s class.
War Eagle Kobe!
