Auburn Vs. Clemson: Auburn Recruits Will Come Watch Season Kickoff

Thanks to SEC rule changes made last spring, the home team of a game played on a neutral field can now host recruits for unofficial visits.

Auburn will do just that on Saturday night, when it squares up against Clemson at the Georgia Dome. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Reuben Foster, Montravius Adams, AJ Jackson and Trey Johnson-- among other recruits-- will be present on Saturday.

Of those four, only Adams has not verbally committed to Auburn. Adams, who is perhaps the nation's No. 1 defensive tackle, has Auburn and Clemson on his short list of potential schools.

Auburn draws many of its top recruits from the Atlanta area, and this will be an excellent way for them to attract even more. Auburn coach Gene Chizik agrees: "We're excited. We think it's going to be a great game to watch for any spectator, certainly any recruit. So we're looking forward to it."
