Auburn Looks to Cap Off Strong Class on National Signing Day

Today is National Signing Day (NSD). Before 2017 it was a day of anticipation and even excitement for college football fans hungry for some football news in the off season. That was before the NCAA instituted an early signing period.

There is little doubt the drama has all but disappeared with the majority of top players on the board electing to sing their National Letter of Intent in December.

While this writer misses the intrigue of following the days events, I can truthfully say I don’t miss the hat trick theatrics that went along with the old NSD. And the good thing about the February deadline is it does give football players more time to make decisions for their college careers.

Most schools have already wrapped up their 2020 classes. Auburn for example has put together a strong class of 23 signees, 10 of which are already enrolled. Even though this class is currently ranked 7th nationally, the Tigers are still looking to round out that bunch with a couple additions today.

It will be interesting to see whether Gus and company can flip a couple of four and five star prospects that are leaning toward their rivals.

Here are the Auburn targets to watch and the times they are expected to send in their letters of intent.
