AuburnSports.coms Hot Board - Dec. 1

Important: This is NOT the official board for Auburn. This board has been compiled by the staff at AuburnSports.com to give fans a general idea of the prospects Auburn may be pursuing. It will change as more information and new names become available.
The following chart lists each position, along with the number of players that we believe the Tigers will attempt to get at that particular position. The percentages are our prediction of the chance that particular player will sign with Auburn on National Signing Day.
QUARTERBACK (0 or 1)
If the Tigers don't sign a quarterback this year, they will bring in two with the class of 2006.
