National Signing Day for college football begins early on December 21, and Auburn’s staff has pulled in three more recruits ahead of the event. Head coach Hugh Freeze and his staff turned to the Junior College circuit and landed defensive lineman Quientrail Jamison-Travis, the No. 17 player in JUCO, and offensive tackle Izavion Miller, the No. 11 player in JUCO. Auburn also received a commitment from Hank Brown, the No. 68 quarterback in the 2023 class. Brown was coached by Trent Dilfer at Lipscomb Academy.
Jamison-Travis joins a defensive line group that will return just seven players from the 2022 season, along with recruits and four-stars Darron Reed and Wilky Denaud committing earlier this season and former Vanderbilt edge Elijah McAlister transferring on Tuesday.
“First I want to thank my family for everything they did for me and kept me pushing through thick and thin and been there and supported me from the start,” Jamison-Travis said. “Also I want to thank the Iowa Western coaching staff. They've been really great to me and the best JUCO coaches to play for.”
Jamison-Travis had a lot of success at Iowa Western, winning the JUCO National Championship this year while racking up 45 tackles and 8.5 sacks this season, including four tackles, 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble in that championship game.
Joining Jamison-Travis from the JUCO ranks, Izavion Miller could fill a much-needed hole at either tackle position after the departures of Austin Troxell and Killian Zierer. Miller, who has spent the last two years playing for Southwest Mississippi Community College, is the No. 4 offensive tackle in the 247Sports JUCO Composite Rankings.
Miller committed to Ole Miss on July 31 and was recruited by offensive line coach Jake Thornton, who has since been hired by Freeze to take the same position at Auburn. After Thornton left Oxford, Miller’s attention eventually turned toward the Plains.
“I already know Coach Thornton from Ole Miss so it was really nice,” Miller said in an interview with 247Sports. “I committed to him at Ole Miss so I love him.”
Miller joins an already stacked offensive line class that includes two four-star offensive linemen and now five overall. The last time Auburn signed three offensive linemen out of high school was in 2017.
Auburn has also added the second quarterback of its 2023 class with a commitment from Hank Brown. Brown was committed to Hugh Freeze at Liberty, but when Auburn hired Freeze, Brown opened his commitment back up on December 3. He chose Freeze and the Tigers over in-state competitor UAB and his former high school coach, Trent Dilfer.
"I mean, they’re two amazing coaches but most importantly they’re great people and Coach Freeze is super authentic," Brown said in a 247Sports interview. "That’s one thing I really like about him. He’ll lay it out there for you. Let you know what’s in front of you and what’s going on. I’m super, super close with Coach Austin, who is amazing and just an amazing person. My relationship with the both of them is very strong."
This past season, Brown was dominant, completing 73% of his passes and throwing 3,264 yards, 47 touchdowns and just three interceptions. While there is criticism over the competition he played at Lipscomb, Brown led his team to a victory over AHSAA 7A State Champions Thompson in week two of the regular season.
Brown joins Keyone Jenkins as the other quarterback in Auburn’s 2023 class and the Tigers are still looking at a few quarterbacks currently in the transfer portal.
