Auburn offers 4-star safety committed to Big Ten program

·1 min read

Bryan Harsin and the rest of Auburn’s coaching staff are confident that they will be able to land multiple recruits who are committed elsewhere this cycle.

They have already done that once, flipping four-star edge Ashley Williams from Nebraska, and are heavily pursuing multiple prospects committed elsewhere. Well, they are now looking to flip another prospect after extending an offer to four-star safety Conrad Hussey on Monday, who is committed to Penn State.

Auburn may have a couple of things going for them in their pursuit of Hussey, he is from Fort Lauderdale, Florida and Auburn is clearly closer to home. Another is that he was high school teammates with current Auburn wide receiver Camden Brown at St. Thomas Aquinas High School.

Hussey is ranked as the No. 276 overall recruit and No. 25 safety in the 247Sports composite ranking. He is also ranked as the No. 56 player from Florida.

The 6-foot, 190-pound Hussey was a ball hawk last season, recording four interceptions and returning a blocked field goal for a touchdown. He also made 26 tackles as he helped the Raiders win a state championship.

Flipping a player is always challenging, but if Auburn is able to get Hussey to the Plains for a visit it would seem to be a strong indicator that there is mutual interest.
