Auburn making four-star OT Jameson Riggs feel like a priority
Hiram (Georgia) Tall four-star offensive tackle Jameson Riggs returned to Auburn this weekend after visiting the Plains in January.
6-foot 4 1/2, 300-pound Riggs is the main target for Hugh Freese and its employees in the 2024 cycle.
“It was good, I really enjoyed watching the practice and watching the guys compete,” said Riggs.
“I definitely like the coaching staff, Coach Thornton is great and I think they are doing well there. Plus it’s close to home and all that stuff.”
Auburn is battling universities like Clemson, Tennessee and Georgia Tech, where Riggs visited in January after attending games in each of those programs in the fall. Ohio State, Duke and North Carolina are a few more contenders for Riggs, who is ranked the 18th best offensive player in the nation by 247Sports.
Auburn is one of the most difficult programs to recruit Riggs.
“They care a lot about people and relationships, which I appreciate and is something that not every program focuses on,” Riggs said. “I communicate with them more than with some other teams.”
