Talented DB Has Tigers At The Top

Defensive back prospect Robensen Therezie talks about his visit to Auburn over the weekend.

Miami, Fla.--Anyone in attendance Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium could see the need for help in Auburn's secondary after the Tigers defeated Arkansas despite giving up over 400 passing yards. One of the people in attendance taking a first-hand look was official visitor Robensen Therezie.

Rated as four-star prospect and the number 24 cornerback in the nation, Therezie took a trip to check out coach Gene Chizik's program for the second time and he said he left even more impressed by what he saw.

"Auburn is probably number one right now," Therezie said. "I like everything I saw about the family and how I would fit in. Also the atmosphere.

"I like the way they are coming together as a big program and a family as one," Therezie added. "Not only all the fancy things they've got there, that's not what I'm all about. I'm just about what they have to offer in the program."

At the top with Alabama, Florida and Tennessee also in the running at the moment, Auburn obviously made a big impression on Therezie as he visited along with his family. He noted that getting a chance to take a closer look at everything associated with Auburn was important to him.

"The trip and everything was pretty good," Therezie said. "From back in the summer when I went up there I didn't get to see a lot. Now I've seen a lot I didn't even know. It's a real big and nice program for me to fit into."

One of the biggest factors for any visitor to Auburn on a game day is always the Tiger Walk and the crowd inside Jordan-Hare Stadium. Therezie said that was no different for him as he was impressed by that part of the atmosphere.

"It was really interesting and exciting to see," Therezie said. "I could kind of see myself walking in front of a crowd like that and thousands of people just waiting. It was real good.

"The atmosphere was real nice," Therezie added. "How the crowd relates to the game and how they cheer. It was real nice."

Looking to help immediately, the 5-10, 185-pounder had to be looking on with great interest at Auburn's struggles stopping the pass. He said the coaching staff emphasized that point to him as well about needing playmakers in the secondary and it's one of the reasons why the Tigers are at the top of his list following his visit.

"They said they're in real need of a good secondary," Therezie said. "They've got a lot to learn and rebuild in the secondary. They have a couple of seniors in the secondary that are leaving. That might give me a chance."
