Auburn coach Gus Malzahn gave a preview of his national signing day press conference during a quick interview with ESPNU Wednesday morning.
Malzahn didn’t try to hide his excitement over the group of wide receivers the Tigers are bringing in that includes three names from ESPN’s Top 300 list.
Tampa Catholic receiver Nate Craig-Myers gave Auburn’s coaching staff its biggest commit of the day when he announced his decision to pick the Tigers over the University of North Carolina.
“He’s a difference maker,” Malzahn said.

Malzahn also praised early enrollee Kyle Davis, “we wanted big fast receivers, he fits the bill,” and the electrifying Eli Stove.
Auburn wide receivers coach Dameyune Craig took to social media to share his feelings about a talented group that also includes Crestview's Marquis McClain.
“Boom City!! I know the people in Alabama are feeling better now. WDE for life,” Craig said after Nate announced his decision.
Craig dubbed his new group of receivers “locked and loaded” for 2016.
