***Had a blast last few weeks recruiting and working with new staff.

***Today great day for Auburn. Thanked assistant coaches, player hosts, etc.

***Wanted to make sure they recruited the right players. Student athletes, high character were important.

***Tried to upgrade speed and athleticism at every position. Felt they did that.

***Going to go out now and re-recruit exisiting players and build those relationships.
