Usually, it’s the reaction video of the coaching staff that lands the star high school recruit that goes viral. This time around, we’re going to show you what it looks like to be on the other side. Check out the clip of Auburn’s coaching staff reacting to five-star linebacker recruit Rashaan Evans choosing to suit up for the Alabama Crimson Tide rather than his hometown Tigers. Evans is the same player that AU mistakenly posted the bio of earlier in the day.
Auburn still wound up with a consensus top-10 class (Alabama was a consensus No. 1), but it must hurt the Tigers staff to lose such a talented player who hails from so close by. Maybe if they just watch a replay of the Iron Bowl, they can cheer themselves up.
