The Auburn Tigers may have just found their replacement for Sammie Coates. The Tigers have landed a commitment from four star wide receiver Eli Stove. This is surely a huge steal for Auburn after it was rumored that Stove would commit to rival Alabama.
According to College Spun, the Niceville, Florida native was visiting Auburn’s campus this weekend during the annual Big Cat Weekend. It was then reported that Stove had made a decision after his visit.

Stove is the seventh ranked wide receiver for the 2016 recruiting class. He currently hold nearly thirty offers, so it is very possible that he could still change his decision. Auburn has produced terrific receivers like Blake Emory with the St. Louis Rams and Coates who was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers. Tiger fans will be excited to see a dynamic receiver catching passes in 2016.
Now the question is, from whom will Stove be catching them?
