Recruits watching: Missouri-Auburn

All eyes around the college football world will be watching the Auburn-Missouri SEC championship game on Saturday afternoon. There are some recruits, however, who will be paying a little bit closer attention than everyone else. Here’s a look at 10 recruits who have a vested interest in the game this weekend.

DE Dante Sawyer (Suwannee, Ga./North Gwinnett): Missouri, Auburn, Tennessee and South Carolina are schools near the top of Sawyer’s list. Sawyer, No. 91 in the ESPN 300, will be paying close attention to Missouri’s sack leader Michael Sam along with Auburn’s talented freshmen defensive end Carl Lawson. Both schools are looking to make a positive impression on the ninth-ranked defensive end in the country.
