Trott's Decision Will Wait

The Auburn Tigers have moved into the top spot for the state's number one prospect, Tommy Trott. The standout tight end has been a life-long Alabama fan, but the Tigers have been relentless in their recruiting efforts and now lead for his signature.

"Auburn has a very small lead, right now. I mean, it's about as small of a lead there is possible over Alabama," Tommy Trott said.

There are a few reasons why the Tigers have become the favorite for the four star tight end.

"I went to a bunch of Auburn games during the year and I enjoyed them," he said. "I went to the SEC championship game with the Eddins family and had a great time. I have also been talking with the coaches a lot more lately."

Trott said he is not on the verge of a commitment, leaving the battle open for this top Alabama prospect.

"I am definitely going to wait it out and take all my visits before a decision is made," he said. "I have not made any commitment, at all, and things can change. I really don't see my decision coming anytime soon.

Monday, tight end Coach Dave Ungerer (Alabama) spent time with Trott at Trinity Presbyterian.

"Coach Ungerer came to the school yesterday. The visit went really good. We talked a lot. He is cool. We talked about Alabama and how they are going use their tight ends," Trott said.

Trott received a visit Tuesday night, from another school Trott is strongly considering.

"Coach Cristobal from Miami was here tonight," he said. "The visit went fine. He came over to the house and stayed about three and a half hours. I am definitely still considering them. It's still Alabama, Auburn, and Miami for me."

Coach Ensminger (Auburn) is scheduled to visit with Trott on Thursday.
