Ranking the top signees in Tigers’ history


In the past 40 years and beyond, some of the top football players in the nation have decided to come to the Plains and put on the burnt orange and navy blue for the Auburn Tigers.

The names read like a who’s who of great college players: Bo Jackson, Tracy Rocker, Cadillac Williams, Ronnie Brown, Takeo Spikes and Cam Newton. On and on and on the list goes.

But who ultimately deserves to be on the Mount Rushmore of all-time recruits for the Tigers? For this list, I took a few things into consideration:

  • JUCO transfers could not count, so out with both Cam Newton and Nick Fairley.
  • I stuck to 1990 and later, so no Bo Jackson. In fact, he deserves a mountain of his own, not to be shared with anyone else.
  • Performance in an Auburn uniform counts. Sorry, Byron Cowart.

With that said, here are the four former Tigers, I would put on the Mount Rushmore of Auburn recruiting.

Bama / Aub / Fla / LSU / Tenn. / UGA // Mich. / Mich St. / Ohio St. / Wisc. // Okla. / Texas // ND // USC
