Running back Mike Blakely (Bradenton, Fla./Manatee) recently made an unofficial visit to Auburn and the visit put the Tigers squarely in the mix to land the speedy 5-foot-9, 193-pounder. "Auburn was a nice campus. It was beautiful really," said Blakely. "I was amazed at how much like family all of the coaches and players were. They seemed like brothers." Blakely claims offers from Clemson, Florida, Iowa, Iowa State, Miami, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, Purdue, Rutgers, South Carolina and South Florida.
