Auburn’s 2020 class got off to a really strong start, specifically in the trenches where at one point the Tigers held commitments from 3 outstanding defensive line prospects. That number is now down to 1.
Last August, 4* DL Andy Boykin reopened his recruitment. Today, 4* Buck Quandarrius Robinson did the same according to his coach.
NEW: 2020 #Rivals250 LB Quandarius Robinson of Jackson-Olin in Birmingham, Ala. has backed off his pledge to #Auburn. This is after a visit to #RollTide. He added an offer from #GeorgiaTech this week.— Chad Simmons (@ChadSimmons_) January 30, 2019

This unsurprisingly coincides with a recent push from Alabama. Nick Saban took a helicopter to his school a week ago and Robinson was in Tuscaloosa this past weekend. Auburn was one of the first schools involved with Robinson but coaching instability concerns have opened up opportunities for other programs, most notably the Crimson Tide. The Tigers will stay hard after Robinson as he’s long been the top Buck target for the 2020 class and I think they have a fair shot at bringing him back into the fold. But as of today, they have a lot of work to do to make that happen.
