AUBURN, Ala. (EETV) – Auburn adds a second commit on the day in the form of 3-star quarterback Hank Brown. The gunslinger commits to the Tigers just a day after they gave him an official offer.
The Nashville native originally committed to play his college ball at Liberty in June but reopened his recruitment following Hugh Freeze’s move to Auburn.
“I know these coaches are amazing, and not just as coaches, but people as well,” he said. “Coach Freeze is super authentic. Coach Austin is my guy. He’s been with me throughout this whole process at Liberty and now at Auburn.
Brown spent his high school years being coached by former NFL quarterback Trent Dilfer at Lipscomb Academy.
In his senior year under Dilfer, the 6-foot-4 quarterback threw for 3,264 yards and 47 touchdowns with just three passes intercepted. He finished the season with a completion percentage of 73.3% en route to winning the state title.
Dilfer, who took his first college job with UAB Blazers on Nov. 30 offered Brown a week before the Tigers did. Ultimately Brown decided not to reunite with his former coach and rather play under the coaching of Hugh Freeze.
Brown is the second quarterback in Auburn’s 2023 recruiting class, joining fellow 3-star Keyone Jenkins. They both join Robby Ashford and Holden Geriner as underclassmen in Auburn’s increasingly young quarterbacks room.
