4-Star Safety Prospect Quindarious Monday Commits to Auburn

Quindarious Monday has made Auburn's 2018 recruiting class that much stronger.

The safety announced his commitment to the Tigers in a tweet Tuesday:

Monday is a premier playmaker in the secondary. He's got size at 6'2 1/2" and has the potential to be an impact safety at the college level.

An Atlanta native, Monday is a 4-star prospect who is ranked as the No. 3 safety recruit from the state of Georgia, No. 22 safety recruit in the 2018 class and No. 233 overall recruit, per

Looking at what Monday is capable of at the next level, John Garcia Jr. of surmised he's capable of making a difference as a run- and pass-defender:

"On the hoof he is a long and lean prospect who flashes as both a pass defender and near the line of scrimmage in run support. He is a competitor who shines brightest at the point of contact, whether it is the football in the air or one-on-one in space. Monday has great feel for the position while in coverage, too, despite a lack of top-end speed."

With that kind of scouting analysis, it's not hard to see why Auburn will be thrilled to add Monday to its secondary.

Even though the Tigers have struggled to reach the heights they did in 2013, playing for the BCS championship, head coach Gus Malzahn and his staff have done a terrific job building a strong defense in the SEC.

In 2016, Auburn finished seventh in scoring defense but only had an 8-5 record because the offense ranked 49th in scoring.

Success in the SEC depends on having a strong, physical defense that can withstand the kinds of hard-hitting games that opponents like Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee are going to play.

Monday brings the kind of edge the Tigers need. He's able to drop back into coverage and create turnovers with his ball skills and isn't afraid to move down in the box to attack running backs with his natural tackling ability.
