Jake Naylor, 6-4, 295 pounds, played left tackle for the Mustangs in his junior season but said he could move inside to center or guard for his senior year. Stanhope-Elmore, coached by Jeff Foshee, begins its spring practice begins at the end of April. In addition to attending Friday's scrimmage, he attended junior day back in March.
Naylor, who grew up an Alabama fan, watched the scrimmage from the stand with his coach and several Stanhope-Elmore teammates, but said he spoke to Alabama offensive line and assistant head coach Joe Pendry at junior day.
"I met him at junior day and told him who I was and where I went," he said. "He said he'll keep an eye on me."
"The Auburn coach said that he'll hopefully have me committed soon enough, but he said that to a group of folks. There were like for or five of us."
