Auburn leading for Tennessee decommit Brodarious Hamm?


Four-star offensive tackle Brodarious Hamm decommitted from Tennessee on Sunday and Auburn is now in the lead for his commitment.

A four-star recruit is back on the market, but it seems he will keep that status for only a little while.

2016 four-star offensive lineman Brodarius Hamm (Griffin Ga. Spaulding) told 247Sports’ AuburnUndercover blog that he has decommitted from the Tennessee Volunteers, and that Auburn is now his top team. A decision on where he will spend his collegiate career is expected to happen sooner rather than later.

Hamm is the No. 309 player in his class, the No. 32 offensive tackle, and the No. 24 player in the Peach State per the 247Sports Composite Rankings. He noted that his interest level in Auburn is “very high” and that he is “close” to committing to the program. He also indicated that he talks to the Tigers “almost every day.”

He visited the campus last week, spending time with head man Gus Malzahn, offensive line coach J.B. Grimes and defensive line coach Rodney Gardner. The duo handled Hamm’s recruitment, with Gardner taking the primary recruiter role and Grimes handling the secondary role.

“They told me they just really want me,” Hamm said, via 247Sports.

Hamm committed to the Volunteers back on April 25, at the time ending a recruitment that included offers from Auburn, Alabama, Georgia, Louisville, LSU, Mississippi State, Missouri, and North Carolina State.

Currently, Auburn’s 2016 class is tabbed as the No. 18 class in the country and the No. 8 overall class in the SEC per the 247Sports team rankings.

If Hamm commits to Auburn, he would be a tremendous addition to what is an already complete and well-rounded class. The program already possesses a four-star wide receiver in Eli Stove, a four-star cornerback in John Broussard, a four-star dual threat quarterback in Woody Barrett, Stephen Davis Jr, a four-star athlete, and four-star cornerback Jamarcus King. Having that of talent spanning different positions can only mean positive things for Auburn moving forward, should he choose to go there.

Although all signs point to Auburn, nothing is completely clear as of yet. Will he go to the Tigers? My guess is yes. Judging by the fact that he wants to be a part of the program and that those feelings are mutually shared by Malzahn and his staff, it seems like the perfect match.
