The recruitment of Darrius Clemons has taken another twist.
Clemons has had a dramatic and unpredictable recruitment, but Auburn may be able to reenter the picture for the talented wide receiver.
Auburn was at one point seen as the leader for the 4-star wide receiver but then Auburn fired his primary recruiter and position coach Cornelius Williams and Oregon ramped up their recruitment of the Portland, Oregon native.
This led to the Ducks becoming the leader and Auburn seemingly falling out of the race. However, Oregon head coach Mario Cristobal is heavily rumored to be heading to Miami to become the head coach of the Hurricanes. Also, Oregon offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead has accepted the Akron head coaching job. This has opened the door for Auburn and the Tigers will look to capitalize on the turmoil in Oregon.

It will be very important for Auburn to visit Clemons and it is worth mentioning the Tigers have yet to hire an offensive coordinator after moving on from Mike Boob, something that could impact Clemons.
Landing Clemons would be a major boost for Auburn’s recruiting class, Clemons is rated as the 22nd best receiver and 147th best recruit overall in the 247Sports composite ranking. He would become Auburn’s highest-ranked recruit. Auburn’s recruiting class currently ranks 12th in the SEC and 33rd in the country and has commitments from 4-star athlete Omari Kelly and 3-star receiver Jay Fair.
