Auburn Getting Big Defensive Line Help

Defensive line is the lifeblood of SEC football, and Auburn is getting some big time help in that department today.

It all began early this morning when DE Elijah Daniel made a surprise flip from Ole Miss to the Tigers. Now on the inside, top-5 DT recruit Montravius Adams and his spectacular airbrushed T-shirt is headed to the Plains as well. They join fellow highly-touted recruits DE Carl Lawson and JUCO DT Ben Bradley in a fantastic defensive line haul for Gus Malzahn in his first year as head coach. The only bad news is the reported loss of longtime commit DE Tashawn Bower to LSU, but the collection of talent here is still great.

It's going to be hard for anyone to beat this group today. Ole Miss might come close, but even with Robert Nkemdiche in house, the Rebels don't have the same quantity of high end linemen.
