AU Offer Watch: January

Updated: Feb 17

Since the Harsin era began, I have been tracking each reported offer from Auburn.

There may be other offers out there, but I can only monitor those which are announced.

I will include their composite rating (ESPN, Rivals, 247 averaged) as well as unveil my first initial rating for each player notated as “CP’s Rating”. For now my rating scale will be:

80-89 = 🌟🌟🌟

90-97 = 🌟🌟🌟🌟

98-100 = 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

**My ratings will be updated throughout each player’s senior seasons.

***Prospects are grouped by the date they were offered.

Let‘s take a look at what kind of players AU and the new staff have reached out to.

OFFER DATE - 1/13/21

S | Laquan Robinson | 6’2 195 | Greenville, AL | Greenville HS


Notable Offers: Ole Miss, South Carolina, Florida State

Composite: Unrated

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟 89.3

Heat-seeking missile. Good size and length and a lot of play making ability as a safety. Very strong against the run and as an open field tackler—similar to Smoke Monday in that regard. He will be one to watch next year.

DB | Andre Stewart | 6’0 175 | Snellville, GA | Brookwood HS


Notable Offers: Florida, LSU, Oregon

Composite: 🌟🌟🌟 88.6

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟 89.6

An extremely physical corner prospect; The former Auburn Commit is hearing from the new staff and reconsidering the Tigers with high regard. Stewart loves contact and speeds up when he meets a ball carrier. Seems to be most effective when in press man coverage as he is usually able to knock the receiver off of their designated route.

OFFER DATE - 1/14/21

DE | Caden Story | 6’4 240 | Lanett, AL | Lanett HS


Notable Offers: Texas A&M, Maryland, Kentucky

Composite: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 92.6

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 90.3

Excellent frame mixed with some flashy athletic ability. Pad level needs to come down and needs more extension against blocks at times, but Story is a major force on the edge. Sounds like new AU staff is high on him

DB | Dainsus Miller | 5’11 170 | Fairburn, GA | Creekside HS


Notable Offers: Alabama, Georgia, LSU

Composite: 🌟🌟🌟 87.9

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 90.1

Speedy and smooth, Miller is a 3 star for most recruiting services—for me he is a 4 star. Great football instincts and a high skill set. Will need time in a college weight program to add size and bulk and will need some work as a tackler, but a very good prospect.

OFFER DATE - 1/15/21

OT | Riley Quick | 6’5 265 | Trussville, AL | Hewitt-Trussville HS


Notable Offers: LSU, Florida State, Michigan

Composite: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 94.1

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 93.8

Love this prospect! He’s a guy who plays O &D for Hewitt. He fires off the ball, extremely aggressive with his hands and is a strong finisher. He’s got a frame that will hold more mass for the next level. Love his intensity: Always a strong finisher.

OL | Neto Umeozulu | 6’4 300 | Allen, TX | Allen HS


Notable Offers: Alabama, Ohio State, Oklahoma

Composite: 🌟🌟🌟 87.3

CP’s Rating:🌟🌟🌟🌟 94.2

Raw power is crazy. Feet are on fire when making contact. Always tries to extend and control the defender. Most impressed with his balance & quick feet. Besides playing too high at times, and false stepping, he’s pretty advanced technique-wise.

JUCO OL | Percy Lewis | 6’9 360 | Perkinston, MS | Mississippi Gulf Coast CC


Notable Offers: Syracuse, South Alabama, Southern Miss

Composite: Unrated

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟 88.6

Lewis, at 6’9 360 is athletic enough to play in space as a tackle. He can get out on an edge rusher and find an LB on the next level. I’m overly impressed with what little of his film I’ve seen. He can be clumsy in his feet and his pad level could be an issue against better competition.

WR | Darrius Clemons | 6’3 205 | Portland, OR | Westview HS


Notable Offers: Penn State, Oregon, Michigan

Composite: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 94.6

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 95.2

Big enough to go up over defenders.. Fast enough to take the top off the defense. Deceptive speed from the big-bodied receiver. Big time prospect out west. The word is Auburn is in the picture.

TE | Micah Riley-Ducker | 6’6 240 | Bellevue, NE | Bellevue HS


Notable Offers: Iowa, Wisconsin, Nebraska

Composite: 🌟🌟🌟 89.0

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 90.7

Riley-Ducker is versatile: He’s a strong open space blocker and can make plays after the catch. It is impressive that he can run a block without being too heavy. This is the type of player Coach Harsin likes.

OFFER DATE - 1/17/21

OT | Eston Harris Jr. | 6’6 280 | Opelika, AL | Beauregard HS


Notable Offers: Georgia, Oregon, Texas A&M

Composite: 🌟🌟🌟 88.4

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 91.2

AU is in need of some tackles to come in and be ready to go. Harris may need some refining first, but he’s one of the more overall athletic OL I’ve seen on film in the 22 class. He’s an LT all the way with the frame to be in the 290-300 range & not lose a step

OFFER DATE - 1/22/21

S | Brylan Green | 5’10 170 | Lafayette, LA | Lafayette Christian Academy


Notable Offers: Arkansas, Mississippi State, Colorado

Composite: 🌟🌟🌟 82.2

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟 89.7

One of the better DB prospects I’ve seen on film for 22. The quick reaction time and strong understanding of positioning on the back end really stand out. Pretty fast, but quicker more so than anything; He’s quick physically and mentally.

OFFER DATE 1/23/21

DB | Terrance Brooks | 6’0 185 | Plano, TX | John Paul II HS


Notable Offers: Alabama, Florida, Notre Dame

Composite: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 90.1

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 94.9

A corner prospect with good size and GREAT ball skills. Very good at high pointing the ball and playing through a receiver’s hands. I like the way he can get anywhere on the field in a hurry and is impressive as a defender when the ball is in the air.

DB | Azareyah Thomas | 6’3 180 | Niceville, FL | Niceville HS


Notable Offers: Alabama, South Carolina, Florida State

Composite: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 96.1

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 96.5

Second reported DB Offer of the day.. Thomas is a lengthy DB prospect with a major vertical. He’s a long strider and almost impossible to out jump on a 50-50 ball. Really high ceiling for this athlete. Also impressive at receiver.

DB | Sherrod Covil Jr. | 6’0 190 | Chesapeake, VA | Oscar Smith HS


Notable Offers: Notre Dame, Virginia Tech, Penn State

Composite: 🌟🌟🌟 87.9

CP’s Rating:🌟🌟🌟🌟 90.4

Different from the other DB’s offered so far, Covil is a major open field tackler and blitzer.You’ll see him being used as a true safety, on the LB level, and as an edge rusher: A jack of all trades. I’m impressed by his head hunting ability from any spot on the field.

OFFER DATE 1/24/21

DB | Emory Floyd | 6’2 165 | Powder Springs, GA | Hillgrove HS


Notable Offers: Georgia, Indiana, Arkansas

Composite: 🌟🌟🌟 87.4

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟 87.1

While Floyd is smaller than some of the other DB offers, he may be the fastest. Floyd shows true speed in his tape. He’s able to run down plays often and can get from A to B in time when the ball is in the air. The draw back for now is his size; A college weight program will benefit him in a major way.

DB | Bryan (BJ) Allen Jr. | 6’0 180 | Aledo, TX | Aledo HS


Notable Offers: LSU, Florida, Texas

Composite: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 97.0

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 96.6

Another strong DB prospect from Texas. Auburn hit big there last cycle with Chris Thompson. Allen is a similar player in that he plays with a high football IQ and plays with great burst and urgency. He’s also good at taking angles and playing in run support. The back pedal looks nice as well.

OFFER DATE - 1/25/21

CB | Earl Little Jr. | 6’0 180 | Fort Lauderdale, FL | American Heritage HS


Notable Offers: Alabama, LSU, Miami

Composite: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 95.8

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 97.4

Little is a scrappy, fiery DB prospect. He’s liable to fight a receiver off of his route as well as knock the ball carrier’s head off. Love the way he plays through the ball and always tries to create a turnover. Love the impact play ability.

DB | Marcus Allen | 6’2 170 | Marietta, GA | Walton HS


Notable Offers: Georgia, Ole Miss, Florida State

Composite: Unrated

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 91.5

Currently unranked with ranking services, for me he is a 4 star. I’m impressed with Allen’s first few steps. He’s quick and reactive and gains ground with long strides. Allen has a good feel for staying in the hip pocket in man coverage. I don’t expect him to be unranked much longer.

OFFER DATE - 1/26/21

OL | Emery Jones | 6’4 330 | Baton Rouge, LA | Catholic HS


Notable Offers: LSU, Alabama, Arkansas

Composite: 🌟🌟🌟 88.4

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 90.9

A prospect right in LSU’s back yard. Jones is a 320+ pound guy with some twitch and quickness. His pass set will need work, but he’s pretty athletic in it. I think he’s a guy who could play tackle or guard in college—but athletic enough to be a tackle.

OFFER DATE - 1/27/21

WR/DB | Marquez Dortch | 6’0 170 | Lucedale, MS | George County HS | OLE MISS COMMIT


Notable Offers: Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Arkansas

Composite: Unrated

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 92.3

Dortch is currently committed to Ole Miss as a DB. I think he could play on either side of the ball. Says he runs a 4.3 40.. and I believe that is legit. Major speed here. Very little film as a DB but as a WR he’s a threat to score on every touch.

OFFER DATE - 1/28/21

QB | Jacurri Brown | 6’4 205 | Valdosta, GA | Lowndes HS


Notable Offers: Florida, Miami, Texas A&M

Composite: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 94.8

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 96.5

The 22’ QB situation is getting interesting. Brown is a guy you can’t not take a chance on. I’m impressed by his arm talent—but maybe even more by his demeanor in the pocket: He’s active and elusive. A true DT QB which is even more interesting.

DE | Quency Wiggins | 6’6 265 | Baton Rouge, LA | Madison Prep Academy


Notable Offers: Kentucky, Michigan, Ole Miss

Composite: 🌟🌟🌟 85.8

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟 88.6

A ridiculous frame, crazy wingspan, length, and athleticism. A raw prospect waiting to be molded into a major edge player. For now he’s not super quick off the ball and needs to play with more fire, but you can see the potential on every snap.

OFFER DATE 1/29/21

RB | Branson Robinson | 5’11 220 | Madison, MS | Germantown HS


Notable Offers: Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi State

Composite: 🌟🌟🌟 87.9

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 93.2

With RB being a huge need in 22, I’d have to think BR is a top choice. Low to the ground, shifty, great vision, NOT easy to bring down. Probably most impressive is the acceleration at his size. Can stop and start suddenly. Shades of Nick Chubb.

OT | Zach Rice | 6’6 285 | Lynchburg, VA | Liberty Christian Academy


Notable Offers: Alabama, Notre Dame, Ohio State

Composite: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 98.9

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 96.7

For a guy with his status, AU is already late to the party. He’s a lean 280+ and can run like a TE. Rice has long arms and knows how to extend. His pass set is more advanced than most at this stage and that starts with great hips. Can AU get in the game?

RB | Quinshon Judkins | 6’0 200 | Pike Road, AL | Pike Road HS


Notable Offers: Arkansas, Florida, Florida State

Composite: 🌟🌟🌟 87.4

CP’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟 93.8

Seen Judkins play a few times.. Major RB prospect. He’s got the whole skill set and is continuing to add muscle to the 6’0 frame. Able to make subtle cuts and stay north. Already a lot of moves in his repertoire. I think this is one to watch considering AU’s need at RB
