A pair of Auburn assistants earned accolades Monday for their strong recruiting years.
Curtis Luper and Trooper Taylor were named to the 2010 list of Rivals.com’s top 25 recruiters. The two offensive coaches helped Auburn land a consensus top-5 class.
Rivals considered Luper the lead recruiter on four Auburn signees this year, including five-star recruits RB Michael Dyer and QB Cameron Newton. Luper also played a role in getting ATH Trovon Reed to sign.
“Luper was also the primary mastermind behind ‘Tiger Prowl’ and ‘Big Cat Weekend,’” the Rivals.com story said. “Those two recruiting events helped create a great buzz for Auburn.”
Taylor helped Auburn secure eight recruits – seven from out of state. OT Shon Coleman headlined the group of players Taylor helped recruit, along with others, such as DE Corey Lemonier.
