QB recruit reconsidering?

It appears not everything is A-OK on the recruiting front in the wake of offensive coordinator Tony Franklin's firing.

Word from the Washington Post is that QB Raymond Cotton, considered one of the jewels of Auburn's 2009 class, may re-open his recruiting.

"Coach Franklin played a big part of the reason he committed to Auburn," Cotton's father, Raymond Sr., told the Post. "But he wasn't the sole reason. We're trying to keep him focused on his game this Friday and then we'll sit down as a family and discuss all of his options."

The family plans to make a formal announcement on Sunday, after conversing with the Auburn coaching staff.

Cotton, a 6-foot-4, 216-pound dual-threat quarterback from Fort Meade, Md., committed to the Tigers on April, 1. The four-star recruit, who attended the EA Sports Elite 11 quarterback camp in July, had offers from Kentucky, Mississippi State, Purdue and Troy, according to Rivals.com.

Franklin and linebackers coach James Willis were Cotton's primary recruiters.

Cotton is the only quarterback of Auburn's 26 commits for 2009.

I really hope the coaches can keep Cotton's commitment. He has so much upside. Awesome blog.
