Another National Signing Day has come and gone, but it is never too early to look ahead to the future.
The 2021 class has a chance to be another big one for the Tigers, Auburn currently has three commitments in the 2021 class, including one 5-star according to the 247Sports Composite. Let's take a look at the 2021 commits and top targets for next year.
5-star DT Lee Hunter: Hunter is big, athletic defensive tackle that plays light on his his feet and has great closing speed. Even while nearing 300 pounds, Hunter still has room to fill in his frame.
4* Armoni Goodwin (RB, 5-8, 190; Hewitt-Trussville; Trussville, AL.): Tank will be Cadillac's first recruit on campus but Goodwin was his first commit. Goodwin has a very compact build build with a strong lower body and great top-end speed. Running 11 seconds on the 100-yard dash. He suffered a ACL injury last season but expect a bounce back.
3* Phillip O'Brien Jr. (S, 6-2, 190; Deerfield Beach; Deerfield Beach, FL.): Auburn's most recent commit to the 2021 class, O'Brien Jr. is a guy with amazing speed that could play either safety or cornerback.

5* Amarius Mims (OT, 6-7.5, 315; Bleckley County; Cochran, GA.): Mims has visited Auburn three times already and was in town last weekend. Possessing elite size and length Mims will be one to keep an eye on.

5* Dylan Brooks (WDE, 6-5, 230; Handley; Roanoke, AL.): A tall, rangy defensive end who is good at the point of attack. This childhood Auburn fan is related to former Auburn standout Jeris McIntyre. Auburn appears to be the favorite here.
