LOOK: Incoming freshman LB Demarcus Riddick practices with Auburn before bowl game

Riddick is participating in bowl practices with the Tigers.

Some of Auburn’s incoming freshmen are already practicing with the team.

Demarcus Riddick, a four-star linebacker in the Tigers’ 2024 class, is participating in Auburn’s bowl practices in Nashville.

Here’s a breakdown of Riddick as a recruit:

Demarcus Riddick

Size: 6-foot-2, 215 pounds

Position: Linebacker/ATH

High School: Clanton (Al.) Chilton County

Recruitment: Originally a Georgia Bulldogs commitment, Riddick made the official flip to Auburn on July 26, 2023. Offers galore for this man, as Alabama, LSU, Ole Miss, Florida State, Oregon, Florida, Tennessee, and Notre Dame are just some of Riddick’s other football scholarship offers.

Athleticism: Notice above where it says “Linebacker/Athlete” after position? That’s not by coincidence. He used his hands as a big-bodied receiver for Chilton County and scored touchdowns in the process, just as one example.

Riddick’s tremendous lateral mobility, hitting top gear quickly, and his hand-eye coordination, and quick hands, are some of his best physical attributes. He could play numerous sports and be successful.\

Not that he’s interested, but as a mixed-martial arts competitor, Riddick would be a stud. The quickness, speed, size, and power are obvious.

In particular, Riddick shows the quickness to maneuver away from offensive linemen and he could do the same in the octagon.
