2013 Signing Class: Auburn’s Target Zone

target-with-dartsAuburn added 23 players from 9 different states on Wednesday and Thursday.  A breakdown of the Tigers’ “target zone” is below:

 

Alabama = 6 recruits

Kansas = 5

Florida = 4

Georgia = 3

California = 1

Colorado = 1

Indiana = 1

Mississippi = 1

Oklahoma = 1

 

In-State Signees = 26.0%

Out-Of-State Signees = 73.9%

 

Observation:

Of the four new coaches in the SEC, no one had as good a day as Gus Malzahn.  Of course, when you’re returning to a program you won the 2010 BCS Championship with (as offensive coordinator), you’ve got plenty of recent history to sell.  Malzahn also made sure to shore up a thin roster with six juco players including all five of those Kansas signees.  On the downside, recruiting against Nick Saban and an Alabama program that’s won three out of four national crowns is going to be tough.  Having a unique offensive system could offset Bama’s talent advantage.  At least that’s the hope on the Plains.
