Ditto, Auburntron — suit this dude up.

“I talked to Coach Chizik and told him ‘War Damn Eagle!’” Freeman said. “I told him that I was going to sign with Auburn and there wasn’t any doubt about it. I’m so ready to be a part of the Auburn Family. I can’t wait to be a part of it.”

Freeman said his first conversation with Chizik went very well. Freeman believes Auburn found the right guy for the job.

“I know a lot of people say that they don’t like him for the job because of his record at Iowa State and this and that, but I believe in Chizik and I believe in Auburn University!” said Freeman. “I absolutely believe they hired the right guy. Me and Coach Chizik and the rest of the Auburn Family, we are going to get this thing back right.”

Freeman was hardpressed to hold back his excitement about Chizik and signing with Auburn.

“I heard Coach Chizik has coached three Thorpe Award winners, well damn, he better get ready to coach a Dick Butkus Award winner. It’s on now!” Freeman said. “We’re coming back. Me and the boys are coming! I’m ready! WAR DAMN EAGLE! I just can’t wait to be a part of the Auburn Family.”

Auburn has lost eight commitments, one of which it has since gotten back, since Tommy Tuberville’s resignation Dec. 3. More commits have said they are now looking at other schools. Freeman said he had a message for the decommitments and other potential recruits.

“If Auburn can’t get’em, we’ll beat’em…If we can’t get’cha, we’ll beat’cha,” Freeman said.

Merry Christmas to you too, Eltoro. I needed that. War Damn Eagle.

USA Today / Rivals praise Willis, Linebackers

Whatyou talkin’ ’bout.

Tigers roaring: Auburn debuted at No. 23 in the first edition of the Rivals.com team recruiting rankings, but the Tigers should climb higher in the next update. Since the release, Auburn has scored a commitment from three-star linebacker Brandon Jacobs of Parkview (Lilburn, Ga.).

They also have a commitment from potential four-star cornerback Reggie Taylor of Peach County (Fort Valley, Ga.), but he has yet to be officially ranked by Rivals.com.

Early on, Auburn linebacker coach James Willis has been a workhorse. He has had a hand in helping secure commitments from seven players, including four in-state prospects. Throw in commitments from highly regarded junior college players Nick Fairley and Eltoro Freeman, and the job Willis has done is even more impressive.

The Tigers’ current class of 18 players definitely is defense-oriented. Auburn always does a great job of finding — and developing — defensive talent, and this group should be no exception. Defensive tackle Jamontay Pilson of Greenville (Ala.) is a four-star recruit with a load of potential, and Harris Gaston of Bessemer (Ala.) Academy, Jonathan Evans of Blount (Prichard, Ala.) and Jacobs give the Tigers one of the nation’s best linebacker groups thus far.

I’m talkin’ about 19 recruits as of July 10th.
