The Auburn Tigers inked a terrific 2014 class (No. 8 in the ESPN rankings), and the momentum is continuing to build with the lofty expectations this season. With No. 23 recruit Kerryon Johnson jumping on board this week, here is a look at some of the top 2015 prospects Auburn is pursuing in the hopes of landing another top 10 class:
OLB Jordan Colbert: Colbert is a near perfect fit for the 'SPUR' position in Ellis Johnson's defensive scheme, and the Tigers have zeroed in on the Under Armour All-America selection. Florida State is the childhood favorite, and the Seminoles recently come into the picture. Clemson (recruiting him on offense), Alabama and Georgia are also showing legitimate interest, but Auburn is currently the team to beat.
