By Matt Schuster Auburn is set to end its recruiting frenzy.
The Tigers will be without their leading scorer, the top two-guard and three-star defensive linemen.
The team is expected to release one of its three true freshmen.
Auburn has lost a handful of its top recruits in the past year and will not have the No. 1 player or top five offensive linemen in the 2018 class.
The 2017 class was Auburn’s best.
Its first-year coach Gus Malzahn will also have to decide who to start at quarterback.
If he decides to bring in a quarterback, it could be a freshman who will play a big role in the rebuilding process.
The next big question is how Malzahns coaching staff handles a big decision on a key recruiting spot.
What will Auburn do?
After two years of turmoil and turmoil at Auburn, this will be the final season of Malzahs tenure.
He will take a job in the NFL and get a new job.
The program has made a lot of big moves this offseason and the biggest move could be the hiring of a new head coach.
A lot of Auburn fans are concerned with the coaching job that will be handed to him, but the reality is that he has not won a game in the SEC since his first year as the Tigers’ coach.
The new coach should make the biggest difference in how Auburn performs.
