Chizik: Recruits weigh Iron Bowl differently

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn coach Gene Chizik figures Friday's Iron Bowl will have a big affect on some recruits' decision and little or none on others.

Chizik said on Wednesday's SEC conference call that prospects have different priorities, ranging from playing time to education and comfort level.

At least seven prospects will make an official visit this weekend while more than 100 recruiting visitors will be on hand for the game, according to

As far as the game, Chizik said nobody has stopped No. 2 Alabama tailback Mark Ingram so far. He says the best hope for a defense is to slow him down.

Chizik said Ingram deserves all the recognition he has received this season.
