A lot of "surprises" with AU recruiting

The post about Cam Newton's JUCO coach mentioning that Auburn coaches Thigpen and Roof were surprised to find out Cam Newton was committing to Auburn. It made me think of a few other surprises.

My co-worker's uncle is a big booster at Auburn. Anyway, he invited my co-worker to the Tiger Tales dinner held this past spring. The dinner was a chance for the coaches to tell tales about each recruit in the 2010 class and how they came about recruiting them. During the course of the evening Trooper Taylor also told about the commitment  of Spencer Region and how it was a surprise to the coaching staff when he committed.

Funny story huh?

Then you have the story of Cory Lemonier who gave his commitment on National Signing Day to what appeared to be a very surprised Auburn coaching staff.

The most recent surprise came when 5* Russellville RB/LB Brent Calloway decommitted from Alabama and committ to the Auburn coaching staff that was currently preparing for a the BCSNG in Glendale, AZ. Calloway's (and his family's) stoic appearance as he actually verbalized his decision seemed to suggest something deeper may be at play but who knows. I guess this all could be chalked up to coincidence but it just really seems like the Auburn coaching staff gets surprised a lot when it comes to getting huge commitments in recruiting. I don't know, almost like someone is delivering these prospects to the coaches so they can always claim no knowledge of any nefarious dealings that may have taken place.
