Big Cat Weekend IV: The Recruiting Push Continues

Photo by Todd Van Emst

Beyond the end of the SEC Baseball Tournament, the last weekend in May always means the same thing. Big Cat Weekend, Auburn’s annual summer recruiting kickoff that features dozens of prospects visiting the Plains at the same time.

Big Cat Weekend, the brainchild of Auburn recruiting coordinator Curtis Luper, usually brings in a commitment or two during the weekend itself and then produces a bunch more in the weeks to come. Last year, offensive tackle Shane Callahan committed during Big Cat, and Ricardo Louis and Ricky Parks committed shortly after.

Another star-studded (literally, at least in terms of recruiting stars) list of players will be in Auburn this weekend for the event. The recruiting gurus over at AuburnUndercover.com, AuburnSports.com and Inside the Auburn Tigers will be all over the entire weekend and its results.

Here’s a list of the reported attendees, as per the good folks at the recruiting sites. For more — and  to keep an eye on possible commitments this weekend — follow the blog on Twitter and Facebook.

  1. Any chance a few surprise recruits will show up?

  2. I think there is that chance. If anybody unexpected shows up, i’ll add them to the list.

  3. Word is there are several prospects expected in that haven’t been publicized. Maybe we don’t want the other schools to know who is here until after it’s all over with.

    There will be no prolonged secret keeping because our intrepid reporters will be watching doors and using their facial-recognition software to reveal all! And I for one appreciate the efforts of those reporters, without them we’d be lost and “up the creek”.
