Consensus four-star safety Terrance Love strongly considered committing during his visit for Auburn’s A-Day on Saturday, but elected to wait.

By Sunday, however, the 6-foot-3, 200-pound box safety, out of Langston Hughes High School (Fairburn, Georgia), couldn’t wait any longer.

“I thought about announcing it on Saturday, A-Day,” he said. “I ended up calling coach and I was telling him I was going to commit. The coaches there were so loud and happy.”

Love said other schools made an impression - “definitely Florida, Miami, Tennessee, Arkansas and Ole Miss” - but the Tigers coaching staff separated themselves with an aggressive recruiting approach.

“The coaching staff, like coach (Zac) Etheridge and head coach (Bryan) Harsin, they’re hands-on with their recruits, especially with me,” he said. “I talk to them like family. Both of those guys are family.”

Rated the nation’s No. 5 safety and No. 81 overall prospect, Love sees a path to early playing time given his talent and the scheme fit.

To give himself a better chance of earning early playing time, he’s considering enrolling early, but hasn’t yet made a firm decision.

“It’s still 50-50,” Love said. “I could enroll early if I choose to, but I’m still thinking on it.”

Love is the second commitment in Auburn’s 2023 recruiting class, joining Alabama interior offensive lineman Bradyn Joiner, out of Auburn High School (Alabama).
