Auburn has a recruiting class on the borderline of the top 10 in national rankings after a strong closing effort today.
The Tigers' class was rated No. 8 by Rivals as of 9 p.m., No. 13 by Scout.com and 11th by 247Sports.com.
Auburn landed five highly regarded recruits today, the first day high school seniors could sign with colleges in football.
Adams was a standout at Dooly County High in Middle Georgia. He is ranked the No. 3 defensive tackle nationally by Rivals.com. He visited Auburn this past weekend and was recruited by assistant coach Rodney Garner. He also visited Georgia, Alabama, Clemson and Florida in January.
Adams was one of two five-star defensive lineman to sign with Auburn today, joining Carl Lawson. He is rated the nation’s No. 2 defensive tackle and No. 10 overall prospect by 247Sports.com.
Mix, 6-foot-4 and 315 pounds of South Panola High in Batesville, Miss., switched from Mississippi State on Tuesday night, according to Auburn.247Sports.com. Mix signed today.
Daniel, a 6-4, 250-pound defensive end from Avon (Ind.) High, became the first official high school signee of the 2013 Auburn class.
Daniel was an Under Armour All-American. He recorded 85 tackles, 16 tackles for loss and five sacks for Avon last season.
Alexander's decision came as somewhat of a surprise because his twin, cornerback MacKensie Alexander, chose Clemson over Auburn and Mississippi State. There had been speculation the twins would go to the same school.
Auburn strengthened its defensive line immeasurably today. In addition to Daniel, Adams and Lawson, Auburn landed four-star junior college defensive tackle Ben Bradley in this recruiting class.
