McNeal Commits

Demetruce McNeal has committed to Auburn, becoming the 10th commitment of the 2010 class. McNeal is a three star on Rivals and Scout. Rivals ranks him the 31st best safety in the nation while Scout ranks him 72nd. He is graded a 75/100 on ESPN.com. McNeal is teammates with commitment Shaun Kitchens.

McNeal had offers from Auburn, Louisiana Monroe, South Carolina and West Virginia. McNeal looks to be the only safety that Auburn is planning to take this signing class but one more is possible. He says his recruiting is over and will not consider other schoos.

McNeal had 42 tackles in eight games last season.

  2. Welcome Demetruce. Looks like he has potential if he gains some weight.


    Side note- I saw Robert Cooper at Mama G's today. His legs are way too skinny for him to play D.

  3. These possible blue chip running backs won't be running anywhere if we don't get some O linemen quick.

  4. 21- We have out LT in Coleman. That is the most important. We also have C covered with Chase Hughes. There are still some big names out there like D. Robinson (Coleman's HS teammate) and Jmaes Stone. Chad Slade will probably commit to us if offered.

  5. I'm hearing that Aubrey Phillips is talking to the coaches to see if he can enroll at Auburn this coming fall. He has left Florida State. This is supposedly due to weight issues.

    Hopefully we can get him to Auburn and in Yoxs' training program so he can be ready to take over when all the current lineman start graduating.

  6. Aubrey should have commited to us last year. What was he thinking? Anyhow, where did you hear this. I hope he is able to come to AU.

  7. Concerning 2009 FSU signee Aubrey Phillips...I had heard he had left FSU but I do not think it is as easy as joining Auburn since he officially signed a letter of intent w/ FSU, those are binding, unless FSU releases him from his commitment. More than likely he will end up in Div II ball for a year and then have to resign with whomever he wants.

    I hope I am wrong but I believe that's the way it works.

  8. Most schools will release the player as long as it's not a school from their conference. He may have to sit out a year, but he doesn't have to play DII.

  9. FSU is on probation, so I don't believe he will have to sit out.
