Recruiting Update

  • C.J. Mosley is planning an official visit to Auburn for the Iron Bowl. Other official visits he is planning are at Alabama, LSU, Stanford and either UGA or Tennessee. He has not yet decided when he will announce. It likely will not be until after his senior season. Mosley is still considered by most as an Alabama lean. He is quoted as saying, "Right now I feel pretty good about Alabama."
  • Mike Thornton says he speaks to either Coach Thigpen or Coach Rocker once or twice a week. He says he is still trying to get together his list of top schools but Auburn will definitely make the cut. The schools he seems to like the most, apart from Auburn, are UGA, Georgia Tech, Penn State and Michigan.
  • Dakota Mosley and Michael Dyer visited Ole Miss this weekend. It was Mosley's third visit to Oxford. Mosley and Dyer said the visit went very well and they look forward to Little Rock Christian's opening game on September 1. Dyer says Auburn is still at the top but Ole Miss is not far behind. Mosley is still lacking an Ole Miss offer.
  • LaDarius Owens had six tackles for loss including four sacks and returned a fumble for a touchdown in a 27-0 win in his first jamboree. Perhaps the most impressive part is that he only played the first quarter. He then visited the Alabama scrimmage yesterday. He only has one official visit planned for sure and that is to Florida State on September 7th. Owens is still considered a strong Auburn lean.

  1. LaDarius Owens is a beast! We must land him! If CJ wants to play then he needs to come to the Plains. Bama is stacked at LB. We all know Dyer wants to go to Auburn but he also I'm sure wants to see Gus' offense in action to see if it's going to put up point or not. I'm sure alot of recruits are just waiting to see what we do.
