Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville was in a chipper mood Thursday. His annual end-of-spring-practice individual chats with his players were going well, he was a day away from going to Augusta National to watch the second round of the Masters and he was feeling good about recruiting.
That’s important, at least the recruiting part, because signing day is only 300 days away.
Tuberville said Auburn’s new spread offense has not only created excitement on the team, but in recruiting. He said the interest in Auburn’s summer camps “is up tremendously” because of the spread.
Auburn has three commitments for the 2009 signing class, but you get the sense other players could be had. Tuberville said he’s telling his assistants to be patient.
