Auburn Has Slight Edge For 2014 Linebacker
Norcross, Ga.—A player that visited Auburn on Jan. 13 when his godbrother Ben Bradley moved in his dorm room on the Plains, 2014 linebacker Kevin Mouhon learned a lot about the Tigers that day after getting a personal tour from Coach Gus Malzahn. On Wednesday that visit paid off as Auburn extended an offer to the physical linebacker, a call he had been waiting for. "I talked to one of the coaches (Ellis Johnson) and he let me know that I had an offer from them and they would like for me to come to the Junior Day," Mouhon says. "I'm making plans to hopefully be there. "I have been anticipating the offer for a while. I visited Auburn with my godbrother Ben Bradley. They seemed really interested in me so I have been waiting for this offer. I feel like I finally reached one of my goals, getting an offer from Auburn." Part of a talented team at Norcross that went 15-0 last season and won the Class AAAAAA Championship in Georgia, Mouhon was dominant at linebacker as he finished with 154 tackles, five sacks, two interceptions, and one defensive touchdown. With those kinds of numbers it's not a surprise he got the full court press when he showed up at Auburn last month with his old teammate. Mouhon says that experience was one that gave him a very good feeling about the Tigers and still carries over to this day. "It was really big to meet Coach Malzahn when I visited," Mouhon says. "It's like we've got a personal connection. He introduced me to the school and showed me around. It was a great place. That means a lot." With offers from Arkansas, Mississippi State, Florida State, Ohio State, Georgia Tech, Tennessee, Penn State, Wake Forest, Louisville and Oklahoma State in addition to Auburn, Mouhon says right now the Tigers would be the team to beat for him. "Auburn has a slight edge right now, but I'm still going to keep my options open to every college that has offered me," he says. "I'm going to take my time with my decision. I don't want to be the type of player to commit to a school and then de-commit. Once I make my decision it's going to be final."
