Brock Glenn is the star Bryan Harsin needs to recruit

Auburn football HC Bryan Harsin hasn’t had an ideal tenure with the Tigers so far, but there’s room to improve and grow on the Plains for the Boise native. If granted this spot, it will be because the recruiting tide is about to turn as the Class of 2023 has seen very few commits so far.

There isn’t a single qualified rookie to join the team next spring/summer, and there are only two upcoming high schoolers who know they’ll be playing on the Plains at the next level of competitive football. So far, only Auburn High School inside offensive lineman Bradyn Joiner and Fairburn safety Terrance Love have committed to the class.

The Tigers quickly lost ground on the recruiting track in Harsin’s two years as Auburn football HC, dropping to the point where a high-class 2023 addition would be considered a savior.

Brock Glenn of Lausanne (Tenn.) Collegiate could be that savior for AU.’s Nick Alvarez described it as such when discussing the team’s quarterback situation going forward, striking out Robby Ashford and Holden Geriner – who both have three years of eligibility after 2022.

Alvarez basically said that after missing Birmingham-area QB Christopher Vizzina, the team couldn’t miss Glenn:

“A failure to land Glenn, after also missing Briarwood Christian’s Christopher Vizzina, would leave Auburn with another question mark under center, much like the one faced by head coach Bryan Harsin in his sophomore year.”

Auburn football needs Brock Glenn for Bryan Harsin’s sake

It can’t be a thing, where the second-year head coach of Auburn’s football program faces a second straight offseason where there’s no obvious first choice under center, in 2023. Especially when the QB option his first year (Bo Nix) was the rookie of predecessor Bryan Harsin.

Landing Brock Glenn is an opportunity for Harsin to develop his goodwill in 2022 in a season the Tigers are expected to finish bottom of the SEC West.
