Auburn head coach Hugh Freeze has signed his first full recruiting class on the Plains.

“I really believe in the young men we’ve signed and the families they come from," Freeze said. "I love these kids; I think they want to help the program reestablish itself as one of the elite programs in the country, and I’m excited to get a lot of them here soon and go to work."

According to 247Sports, Auburn has the No. 8 recruiting class in the country. Freeze was pleased with the results of this year's recruiting; two positions in particular.

“Our receiver class and our linebacker class have to be two of the tops in the country," Freeze said. "We’ll go from here to fill in the missing pieces that we did not land."

Freeze said a lot of work and networking went into accomplishing his goal of recruiting a top class on his first go-around.

“Making our first class here a Top 10 class was our goal," Freeze said. "That’s how you start to build a program that is able to stack itself and create competitiveness on the roster. We had to close the gap to get into the battles for some of the top guys, and we did that by building relationships. I’m very thankful for the efforts of so many people who contributed to what was a large task.”
