Auburn listed among teams with the most blue-chip commits so far in the 2024 recruiting cycle


Since Hugh Freeze took over as head coach of the Auburn Tigers football program late last year he wasted no time trying to improve Auburn’s recruiting after lackluster efforts by the previous tenure.

The efforts have not gone unnoticed as Auburn’s recruiting class of 2023 improved drastically in a short period, and the Tigers have made a big splash in the transfer portal. The 2024 recruiting class, which will be the first recruiting class for Freeze, is already shaping up to be one of the best Auburn has seen.

Blue-chip commits are recruits who have a four or five-star rating. The percentage of a team’s commits who meet that criterion is that team’s blue-chip percentage. Four of Auburn’s five commits for the 2024 class fit the mold: QB Walker White, RB J’Marion Burnette, CB A’mon Lane, and CB Jayden Lewis.

On3 ranked the programs with the highest blue-chip ratings so far in the 2024 cycle and Auburn is currently in fourth place with 80% of its commits meeting the bill.

The programs ahead of Auburn are Alabama, South Carolina, Florida and Ohio State. The rest of the top 10 after Auburn includes Clemson, Oregon, Georgia, Oklahoma, USC, and Michigan.
