Meet Auburn's 2016 Recruiting Class: National Signing Day Recap

Auburn commits from the 2016 recruiting class.

It's no secret: Auburn did not have a very good 2015 season. The Tigers failed to keep up with most of the SEC West, and of course, Alabama took home a national title. National Signing Day? That's a different story. Despite the rough season, Gus Malzahn's staff had a very strong day, pulling in the ninth-ranked class in the nation, and fifth-best in the SEC. 12 of Auburn's 21 signees and enrollees are blue chip prospects, led by five-star defensive tackle Derrick Brown.

Here is the full list of players, via 247Sports.

Auburn football tweeted profiles of the 21 new Tigers as the letters of intent rolled in yesterday, which they featured in a cool animated clip at the end of the day.

Auburn opens its season on September 3 vs. Clemson.
