As if to confirm for all of us that one Signing Day is only a brief rest stop on the way to the next one, Auburn grabbed their first commitment of 2011 today: Izauea Lanier, the ’09 athlete/DB out of Gordo who spent his single season at East Mississippi C.C. (and first as a full-time defensive back) fruitfully, racking up 66 tackles, four picks, and nine pass breakups. He’ll redshirt this fall and enroll next January with three full years of eligibility.
You know about work and you’ll hear about it even more.
The early signing deadline is behind us with all five available “back-counting” slots filled and there’s only a few weeks of fervent recruiting remaining before Signing Day… seems like a good time to take one last deep breath, look around at where Auburn stands with their 2010 recruiting class, and make a guess at what’s going to happen as Chizik and Co. sprint to the finish line (starting with this weekend’s serious crop of visitors).
