Auburn football lands commitment from 4-star safety Terrance Love

AUBURN — Auburn football landed a huge commitment from four-star safety Terrance Love on Sunday. He’s the second recruit to commit to Auburn’s 2023 class.

Love attends Langston Hughes High School in Fairburn, Georgia, where he is the No. 182 overall prospect and No. 16 safety in the 2023 class, according to the 247Sports Composite. Florida and Tennessee were among the other schools to make an offer to the 6-foot-3, 195-pound safety.

Love joins four-star offensive lineman Bradyn Joiner in coach Bryan Harsin’s 2023 class. The top-200 commitment is another testament to Auburn secondary coach Zac Etheridge, who also reeled in multiple four-star defensive backs in the 2022 class. Love has the size and talent to be involved in Jeff Schmedding’s defense early in his college career.

NEW SAFETIES: Setback didn’t stop Auburn football’s breakout star of spring practice from enrolling early

It’s a position group that is rebuilding after safeties Smoke Monday and Bydarrius Knighten left for the NFL. Auburn had Cayden Bridges and Caleb Wooden taking first-team reps during spring practices at safety, but Zion Puckett is an anticipated starter once he’s healthy. Donovan Kaufman also can alternate between nickel and safety.
