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.
