Auburn assistants Trooper Taylor, Tommy Thigpen named among Rivals' top 25 recruiters

Auburn wide receivers coach Trooper Taylor and safeties coach Tommy Thigpen were named among the nation's top 25 recruiters by Rivals.com on Monday.

It's Taylor's second straight year on the list. He was also named as one of the top 25 recruiters in the SEC by ESPN last month, joining offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn and running backs coach/recruiting coordinator Curtis Luper.

Taylor recruited six Auburn signees this year, all of which rated as four-star prospects -- RB Quan Bray, WR Jaylon Denson, TE Brandon Fulse, OL Greg Robinson, S Robenson Therezie and CB Jeremaine Whitehead.

Thigpen also helped secure six signees -- DT Angelo Blackson, S Erique Florence, LB/WR Kris Frost, LB Justin Garrett, CB Jonathan Rose and S Anthony Swain.

Auburn's recently-signed 2011 recruiting class was ranked second nationally by Scout, third by ESPN and seventh by Rivals.

Hey AB I think it was 3rd by ESPN and 7th by rivals

Sure enough it was. I wish they could get together and have a consensus ranking.

Yeah they'd be too rational. Like asking for a playoff system, or even a plus one system. If we had that Auburn might have 3 championships right now. Thanks for the report.
