    Auburn plays a similar defense to ours, most likely due to Muschamp's influence there as a past DC. They use 2 LBs and a Buck for large % of time every game, like us. So again like us, a deep depth chart for the LB position is not the biggest need - just whoever they get for the position needs to perform. This is a bit different from say, Alabama's and UGA's LB positions, where the LB is the King and major impact player for their defenses. And while Smart may have brought this over from his days as Bama's DC, UGA already had this prior with Jeremy Pruitt (another Saban disciple) and Todd Gratham (not a Saban Disciple).

    So while Alabama is loading up on an army of OLB/DEs in this class - which may help us with getting Grimes - apparently Auburn is not looking for that many OLB prospects. They already have 2 commits - one of them was high 4* Trenton Simpson who is the top commit of their class thus far: they brought in 5* and #1 OLB Owen Pappoe in last year's 2019 cycle - and word on the street is that they are down to 3 final targets: high 4* Phillip Webb, high 4* Wesley Steiner (an ATH who they are recruiting as OLB), and then Tisdol. Webb and Steiner are way above Tisdol on Auburn's board right now.

    So it depends on if Tisdol likes USC enough to go ahead and commit, or if he likes Auburn so much that he'd choose to wait late in the process and see if Auburn misses out on either of their top 2 remaining targets, and fall to Tisdol. Plus, with Pappoe and Simpson, Tisdol will have some steep competition for playing time for much of his time at Auburn, while USC is losing Brunson and Thompson after this season, and will lose Greene and Staley after 2020. So hopefully our staff is selling more opportunity at USC, but if he really wants to be at Auburn, it'll be a battle. But it sounds like things are turning our way....

    If Auburn is fading like it’s rumored then I like USC for Tisdol unless UGA or FSU hop in late with an offer.

    I don’t know with Burch. His recruitment is very low profile. His circle is doing a great job keeping things hush hush.

    Not C2, but I will agree with his analysis on Tisdol. As of today I would say he is a Gamecock.

    Burch is, from all sources I have seen, currently a Gamecock lean. Last I heard it was USC>UGA>Clemson.

    I have heard some rumblings as of late that it might be USC > Tigers and I don't mean the ones from Clemson. Take from it what you will, but I think we land Burch at the end of the day.

    We just got CB for him and I've read rumor that hes 'actually' silent to us. I don't think hes a lock to either school yet and I don't think it's over. But time will tell.

    Well word is Tisdol is flip flopping on his silent and uga may have reentered his recruitment. The first to commit between Tisdol and Whitehead is the one to get the last lb spot.

    Can't be true - AmonRa has said he's an Auburn lock.
