Fanning and Florence are within 15 minutes of AU (Fanning plays for Auburn High School and Florence plays for my old high school, Valley). Florence is a life-long AU fan and will likely be a 3-time all-state safety at the end of next season (not bad considering VHS plays in 5A football, out of six classifications in AL).

One interesting thing about AU now is that we're pulling a lot of players from the Arkansas area due to Malzahn's legendary status there. Two of the recruits above are from the Springdale area where Malzahn first implemented the Wildcat offense and won two state championships in his five years as head coach of Springdale High.
OK jibi, I have to ask. Is this just more Kool-Aid drinking and wishful thinking at this point? Take the first one you mention (and only 5*****), for instance - Christian Westerman. He's from Arizona and currently lists offers and equal interest for Alabama, Arizona State, Auburn, California, Florida, LSU, Miami (Fl), Michigan, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, UCLA, USC, and Washington. So what makes you think Auburn gets his commit at this point?
