AUBURN, Alabama -- Auburn's biggest catch is nearing campus, and soon so will most of the Tigers' 2013 signees.

Auburn fans received great news late Friday when junior college quarterback Nick Marshall tweeted he will arrive on campus Saturday. Concern was rampant he might not make it as he waited to be cleared academically, but his fate never seemed to be in doubt. Marshall's primary concern now is getting up to speed with Gus Malzahn's offense so he can compete against Kiehl Frazier, Jonathan Wallace and Jeremy Johnson immediately for the starting job.

The second summer semester of classes begin Monday. Most of Auburn's signees will be on campus Sunday.

Two in-state players may not make it to campus. Pinson Valley receiver Earnest Robinson needs to score an A in three summer classes in order to qualify to enroll at Auburn. Meanwhile, McGill-Toolen quarterback/athlete Jason Smith appears to be on his way to Fork Union (Va.) Military College after taking a recent ACT test, although his fate could change depending on the result of the ACT score in the coming weeks.
