Auburn wanted at least one JUCO defensive back in this class to add immediate help to next year’s secondary. In August, they got their man when they landed a commitment from 3-star Kamal Hadden.
Following the news of Gus Malzahn’s dismissal, Hadden was initially hesitant on whether he would sign or not. Understandable especially for a JUCO player who has less eligibility remaining to make an impact. But Wednesday afternoon Hadden confirmed that he would stick to his pledge and sign.
Now he’s officially an Auburn Tiger.
AUNerd Scouting Report
After going a month without a single commitment, Auburn has snagged 4 pledges this month and don’t look likely to slow down soon. This Friday, 4-star S Ahmari Harvey is expected to announce his decision and Auburn is the overwhelming favorite. Buzz continues to grow 5-star CB Ga’Quincy McKinstry could have a decision soon which might mean good news for the Tigers. And while 3-star CB Kamari Lassiter has pushed back his decision for now he’s still a name to monitor moving forward. Bottom line, Auburn has once caught fire on the recruiting trail.
