Top Quarterback Commits!

Possibly the number one quarterback in the 2011 class has committed to Auburn today on his Big Cat Weekend visit. Kiehl Frazier became the seventh commitment of the 2011 class and may not be the last commitment of the weekend.

Frazier, who has offers from well over thirty schools, chose Auburn over Arkansas. He also had offers from Clemson, Colorado, Duke, Florida, Illinois, Kansas State, LSU, Memphis, Miami, Michigan, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Northwestern, Oklahoma State, Notre Dame, Cincinnati, Ohio, TCU, Texas Tech, Tulsa, UCLA, Vanderbilt, West Virginia and Western Michigan.

Frazier is ranked a four star on Scout and the fourth best quarterback in the nation. Rivals is yet to release their rankings but I would expect him in the top three.

Last season, as a junior, Frazier passed for 3,817 yards, 48 touchdowns and only 14 interceptions. He also rushed for 764 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Frazier Nearing Decision?

Kiehl Frazier may be nearing a decision on where he will play college football. Frazier tells Mike Irwin of KFSM that he could commit to Auburn while on Big Cat Weekend. Frazier, possibly the top quarterback in the 2011 class, will visit Arkansas tomorrow but will not commit to Arkansas on his visit. He will then visit Auburn and says if he is ready to commit to Auburn, he will do it on Big Cat Weekend.

Frazier has said a commitment could come in the next two or three weeks but we could see it very soon.

I will keep you posted despite the fact I have not done many updates lately. They will be more steady.

Delaware Sleeper D-Lineman Commits!

Bear, Delaware defensive lineman Angelo Blackson has committed to play for the Auburn Tigers according to AuburnSports.com. The commitment is reminiscent of Justin Delaine's last season because Blackson is yet to even have a Rivals profile but is on Scout. Blackson, who is a 6'5", 295 lb. defensive tackle, had offers from Auburn, Maryland, Tennessee, N.C. State, Missouri and Pitt, among others.

Blackson was on the Plains for A-Day last month and was recruited by Tommy Thigpen. Blackson is a two sport star, leading his basketball team to a 18-1 record. He had 56 tackles, 11 for loss and 7 sacks last season.

According to Rivals, Blackson is coached by Dewayne Thomas, who coached Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie at Tennessee State and Thomas thinks Blackson has NFL potential.

He also was his team's punter, punting 40 times for an average of 36 yards and a long of 52. He also had one blocked punt and one safety last season.

Prowl Shut Down

Auburn was halfway through their second annual Tiger Prowl when the NCAA shut it down along with many imitations. Schools such as Georgia and Florida State had copied the act of sending up to six coaches at once to visit a recruit's high school but the NCAA has made a new rule effective immediately. Now, no more than two coaches from a school can visit a player per day.

Newton was 3-8 for 80 yards during A-Day while the other quarterbacks were 17-21 for 199 yards and a touchdown.

Lineman Picks Tigers

Scout.com's number three center in the nation has picked Auburn over the Alabama Crimson Tide today. Reese Dismukes, out of Spanish Fort, Alabama, announced his decision today at a ceremony at his high school. He is on the Rivals 250 Watch List and had offers from schools such as Florida State, Georgia Tech and Ole Miss, among many others.

Dismukes plans on graduating in December and enrolling in the spring of 2011. He adds to an already great 2011 offensive line class for the Tigers with Rivals 250 Watch List guard Spencer Region and Marietta, Georgia guard Thomas O'Reilly are already on board.

Dismukes says he may take other visits but he is 100% Auburn.

Commitment Watch

Check back here around 1:30 CT for an official decision from Reese Dismukes.

Recruiting: Quarterbacks

With Jeff Driskel off the board, Auburn will look elsewhere for a quarterback for the 2011 recruiting class. Auburn has extended offers to three other quarterbacks: Christian LeMay, Kiehl Frazier and C.J. Uzomah.

LeMay is a pro-style quarterback out of Matthews, North Carolina with good size and good speed. At 6'2", 200 lbs., the Rivals 250 Watch List QB runs a 4.59 second 40 yard dash. LeMay is likely to be listed among the top three quarterbacks in the 2011 class. LeMay visited Auburn for the first time two weeks ago and plans a return trip for an official visit in the fall. He lists his top three as Georgia, Clemson and Auburn and it appears UGA is currently the team to beat. A decision likely will not come until after his official visits.

Kiehl Frazier has even more size on LeMay and is listed as a dual-threat quarterback. Frazier, out of Springdale, Arkansas, is likely to be named the top quarterback in the 2011 class. Frazier plays for Shiloh Christian which is where Gus Malzahn coached and they still run Malzahn's offense. The 6'3", 215 lb. Elite 11 quarterback has offers from pretty much every school imaginable. Frazier has been to the Plains many times and I see this as an Auburn, Arkansas battle, with LSU and Miami looking in from the outside. A decision should come in June or July with the Tigers hoping to get Frazier on campus for Big Cat Weekend.

C.J. Uzomah, another dual-threat quarterback, is the biggest of all of the quarterbacks offered at 6'5", 230 lbs which is why Rivals lists him as an athlete. Uzomah is being recruited by Auburn as a quarterback as are many teams. The North Gwinnett High School standout has offers from most SEC and ACC schools. Uzomah has been on the Plains a couple of times but says he is pretty wide open right now. Uzomah says he hopes to have a final decision before the season begins but only if he knows for sure that is what he wants.

Side Note: Do not forget Reese Dismukes will announce his college decision tomorrow at his high school. At the moment, Auburn appears in a great position.
