How Auburn commits, targets fared in their high school games this weekend

Football season is officially back.

The college season enters Week 1, but several high school seasons are already underway. Auburn’s commitment list saw several impressive performances over the weekend. Some of the Tigers’ top targets added to that intrigue, as well.

As for the missing prospects, Daquan Newkirk starts next week. Josh Marsh played in a preseason game, but provided double-digit tackles in the loss. Michael Harris’ team blew out its opponent, so he didn’t play much. Kolbi Fuqua played, but no stats were available in a loss. And it’s tough to provide stat lines for offensive linemen Kameron Stutts and Jalil Irvin.

With that said, check out the provided stats to see what Auburn should expect in the future.
