Though the outlook on the 2022 season remains in question following the loss to Penn State, Auburn is picking up momentum on the recruiting trail.
The Tigers landed a second recruit two days after Saturday’s game, this time picking up a three-star at a major position of need. Gernorris Wilson, an offensive lineman from Lakeland (Fla.) High, announced his commitment on Monday night.
Wilson is a part of a Dreadnaughts team that’s 3-0 in Florida’s Class 4S. Last year at Lake (Fla.) Gibson, Wilson helped produce 231.4 rushing yards a game and over 3,000 yards.
On Sunday, Auburn landed another trench player, three-star defensive tackle Jamarrion Harkless. His and Wilson’s commitment continued a run that started with four-star receiver Adam Hopkins on Thursday.
Wilson’s decision and timing are a particular win for his future position coach, Will Friend. Wilson was on campus this past weekend and saw enough of a future in the Plains to pull the trigger on his verbal following his lone official visit. He previously visited Auburn in July.
Wilson had 17 offers, including Georgia Tech, Oregon and North Carolina, among others. He took an unofficial to Florida on Sept. 10 and watched the Gators lose to Kentucky.
Auburn now has 10 recruits in the class of 2023 with the addition of the 6-foot-5, 285-pound interior offensive lineman. Wilson is the second lineman in the class and third player from Florida to join Bryan Harsin’s class.
The other interior lineman is Auburn High’s Bradyn Joiner, the first player to pledge his future to the Tigers. The Sunshine State products that’ll join Wilson are receiver Daquayvious Sorey and defensive lineman Wilky Denaud, both four stars.
Harsin’s class is now ranked 54th overall, per 247Sports team composite ranking. The Tigers have raised 10 spots over the last week and have jumped Missouri as 13th in the Southeastern Conference.
