ESPN put out its first edition of the ESPN300 recruiting rankings for the football class of 2018 today. Here’s where each of Auburn’s ESPN300 2018 commits ranks.
ESPN, which is one of the four major recruiting services, published its most notable recruiting list for the class of 2018 for the first time today. Here is how the rankings shook out for each of the each of the ranked players joining the Auburn Tigers next year. Two of Auburn’s six players made the ESPN300:
Four-star ATH Joey Gatewood (Jacksonville, FL)
Rank: No. 24
Four-star RB Shaun Shivers (Hollywood, FL)
Rank: No. 283
Auburn has a new quarterback, Baylor transfer Jarrett Stidham, a new offensive coordinator, and it has a pair of players in the first 2018 ESPN300 committed thus far. Interestingly, two of the four-stars that Auburn has over at 247Sports’ composite rankings—defensive end Daquan Newkirk and guard Jalil Irvin—don’t make the cut.
Overall, Auburn’s class is currently ranked No. 2 in the SEC and No. 15 in the nation, per 247Sports.
