It’s Big Cat Weekend, Auburn’s annual recruit-fest where dozens of prospects visit the Plains at the same time. The brainchild of Tigers recruiting coordinator Curtis Luper will have its third edition the next few days.
Similar weekends in the past have been successful (minus the secondary violations committed in 2009). The first Big Cat weekend included 25 top prospects. WR Trovon Reed and RB Mike Dyer were two visitors who would eventually commit, along with several others.
Last year’s Big Cat weekend included QB Kiehl Frazier, ATH Kris Forst, S Erique Florence and DT Gabe Wright, among others.
Here’s an UPDATED list of folks who will be visiting this weekend. A couple names that were here earlier didn’t end up making the trip. Star ratings are by Rivals. Check out the recruiting sites for quotes:
