Auburn has loaded up on the offensive side of the ball early in this 2021 class. Could a run on the defensive side of the ball be starting soon?
One of Auburn’s top defensive targets, 4-star safety Kamren Kinchens, is set to make his decision tomorrow at noon CT.
Kinchens is down to a final three of Auburn, Miami and Texas A&M. However, most believe this is a Tiger-Cane battle. Four of Kinchens high school teammates are currently committed to Miami and a former high school coach of his is on that staff. Confidence is very high in Coral Gables that he will stay home.
But there’s reason to be optimistic on Auburn’s side as well. He’s close to Auburn commit Phillip O’Brien Jr, likes Auburn’s family atmosphere and believes he could see the field early for the Tigers. Fortunately, Auburn was able to get Kinchens on campus before the shutdown.
I thought Auburn was in the driver’s seat a month ago but now feel Miami will be the pick. That’s with very little confidence though considering he’s yet to tell any of the staffs his decision. Just last year, everything seemed poised for Chris Thompson Jr to stay home and attend Texas only for him to pick the Tigers. Might Wesley McGriff have another surprise up his sleeve? It would not surprise me at all.
