AUBURN — Auburn football's 2023 class has been wrapped up while the 2024 class has a new addition to close out National Signing Day. Jeremiah Cobb, a four-star running back from Montgomery Catholic, has been committed to the Tigers since July of 2022. Along with Cobb’s signing, Hugh Freeze and his staff stayed busy today, looking ahead to 2024 and earning a commitment from four-star cornerback Jayden Lewis. 

Despite being committed during the coaching change near the end of the season, Cobb stayed put and was impressed by the new staff. 

“Coach Freeze seems like a real great guy," Cobb said to 247Sports. "I had a lot of fun when he came down to visit. He just seems like a great fit for Auburn. I feel like he really fits this program well. He can really change it around. I am really excited about that.”

Cobb is Auburn’s highest rated offensive recruit in the 2023 class, ranked No. 165 nationally and No. 13 in the state, according to the 247Sports database. 

“You’re getting more than just a great player, you’re getting a student-athlete,” Montgomery Catholic head coach Kirk Johnson said. “You’re getting a guy that conducts himself the right way. He’s someone that puts other people before him.”

With Cobb signing, Auburn’s recruiting class, which was once ranked outside of the Top 50 nationally and near the bottom of the SEC, has been transformed by Freeze and his staff. The Tigers’ 2023 class is now ranked No. 18 in the nation and No. 8 in the conference. 

Freeze landed Auburn’s second commit of the class, Jayden Lewis, to get ahead start on 2024.

“It’s really relieving," Lewis told Auburn Undercover. "I had been waiting to get it off my chest because I knew where I wanted to go. I was waiting on the perfect time. The word I would choose is relief.”

The four-star corner from Anniston is ranked No. 264 nationally, No. 24 at the position and No. 17 in the state, according to the 247Sports database. 

“I’m real excited," Lewis said. "Just seeing both sides of it, that really taught me a lot. These guys were trying to get me to commit. Now I’m on the other side. I’m trying to get guys to commit. It’s really fun and interesting.”
