As Auburn unveils its National Letters of Intent (NLI), we’re keeping a close eye on the additions to the 2024 class. Let’s delve into the recruits and the journey that led them to join Hugh Freeze and the promising future of the Auburn Tigers:

**Joseph Phillips – Linebacker**
Joseph Phillips, currently participating in Auburn’s bowl practices, caught the attention of Cadillac Williams and the interim staff, who offered him a spot last fall. Hugh Freeze, Josh Aldridge, and Ron Roberts continued the pursuit, recognizing Phillips as a versatile linebacker capable of playing both inside and as a jack linebacker. Phillips, relatively new to football, having initially played basketball, was courted by Tennessee and had a silent commitment to Georgia. However, Freeze’s team successfully shifted the tide, securing his commitment close to home.

What Auburn football is getting in 5-star 2024 LB Demarcus Riddick


**Demarcus Riddick – Linebacker**
Already on campus and engaged in bowl practice, Demarcus Riddick played a pivotal role in maintaining Auburn’s momentum by switching allegiance from Georgia just days before Big Cat Weekend. Initially committed to Georgia, the in-state Top247 talent was swayed by both Auburn and Alabama in the final decision-making process. Freeze and Aldridge emerged victorious in securing his services. With experience in safety and offense for Chilton County (Ala.) team, Riddick is anticipated to shine as a rangy outside linebacker in Auburn’s defensive lineup.

**D’Angelo Barber – Linebacker**
Fresh from an impressive performance in the 6A state championship game at Clay-Chalkville, linebacker D’Angelo Barber quickly integrated into the Auburn team after signing early. A standout middle linebacker, Barber’s commitment over the summer sparked excitement within Auburn. With early participation in bowl practices and spring campus presence, Barber is poised for an early impact.

**Kaleb Harris – Safety**
Underrated but impactful, Kaleb Harris, a defensive mainstay for a top Alabama program since his freshman year, chose Auburn over Georgia Tech, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, and others. As a physical safety, Harris may find his niche in Auburn’s system as the star position, resembling more of a nickel linebacker, offering versatility and strength to the team.

**Malik Blocton – Defensive Lineman**
Continuing to evolve since his freshman year, Malik Blocton opted for Auburn over Texas and other suitors, reinforcing the notion that he was destined to be a Tiger due to familial ties with Marcus Harris. Possessing a larger frame, Blocton’s adaptability allows him to potentially play multiple positions, with his first exploration likely at the tackle spot for the Tigers.
