Will Muschamp's return to Auburn having impact on Class of 2016 recruits

Muschamp boosts Auburn recruiting

Will Muschamp was hired as Auburn defensive coordinator in December. Recruiting reporter Derek Tyson joins ESPN's Phil Murphy to discuss Muschamp's impact on landing War Eagle commitments.

Will Muschamp might not have had the on-field success he hoped for as the head coach of Florida, but no one can question his ability as a strong recruiter.

In his three full recruiting cycles with Florida, Muschamp and the Gators finished with the sixth-, second- and fourth-ranked recruiting classes in the country. After being fired in Gainesville, Muschamp is back at Auburn in his second stint as the Tigers’ defensive coordinator. He is hoping to bring that same type of recruiting presence to the Auburn defense.
