Gus Malzahn addresses media as Auburn finishes 2019 recruiting class

Auburn, Ala. (WIAT) -- The Auburn Tigers put the finishing touches on their 2019 recruiting class, as Head Coach Gus Malzahn addressed the media on Wednesday. 

Malzahn said he was pleased with how this year's class turned out for the Tigers, and there was an emphasis on filling needs at Linebacker and Offensive Line. 

The big news of the day was Auburn losing longtime commit George Pickens of Hoover, who decided to flip to rival Georgia early on signing day.  However even with Pickens heading to Athens, the Tigers managed to finish with the No. 11 recruiting class in the NCAA.
