4* LB Jeff Holland Signs with Auburn

Trinity High

Holland is a big pick up in a spot of sore need for Auburn. With Ellis Johnson's 4-2-5 system, the Tigers have not heavily recruited the linebacker position for the past two seasons. Will Muschamp has a hybrid "Buck" position, but that still means we need more linebackers and ends who can mix between the two positions.

Holland's recruitment was one of the strangest in recent memory. He played numerous Twitter games, even going so far as to alter his account so as to look like it was deleted. He visited Auburn on an unofficial visit in weird circumstances on the 30th of January, even going so far as to possibly use an assumed name.

Holland chose the Tigers over offers from schools such as Ole Miss, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, and Arizona. He only took two official visits; to Auburn and Ole Miss. He did take a number of unofficial visits to places like Florida State, Florida, Alabama, and Ohio State.

Well to the class, Jeff. Here's to hoping you do big things for the Tigers.
