Five-Star OL Impressed By Auburn Visit

Five-star OL Christian Westerman talks about his official visit to Auburn.

Chandler, Ariz.--One of the nation's top offensive line prospects took an official visit to Auburn over the weekend and left very high on the Tigers. Five-star Christian Westerman is rated the #1 guard in the nation by Scout.com and he said his trip to the Plains was a very enjoyable one to say the least.

"It went good," Westerman said. "Definitely went good. I had a good time. I toured the school, watched them practice and got to talk to the players. I had a good time."

A commitment to Texas since early in the process, Westerman received an early offer from Auburn and has been familiar with the Tigers for a long time. That's because his grandparents live on Lake Martin and are frequent visitors for Auburn football games. Westerman said that his visit gave him a pretty good feel for the Tigers and coach Gene Chizik's program.

"I definitely love the school," Westerman said. "I had a great trip. We'll see where it goes from here.

"I have a lot of interest in Auburn," he added. "I decided to take my visit and check it out and see what it is about."

Asked if he still considers himself a commitment to Texas after their 5-7 season and coaching changes galore in Austin, Westerman said it's something he and his family will talk about.

"As of right now, I'm going to have to talk over some things and see what's on the next level.

"With the coaches leaving, it's definitely a big change," Westerman added. "It's different from what they told me, from what I expected to see when I got there. That changes up a lot of things."

With his visit to Auburn a success and still an interest in Texas, Westerman said at the moment he's not sure what the future holds for him. Impressed by offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn and offensive line coach Jeff Grimes, he was definitely given something to think about he said.

"I'm not sure yet if I will visit other schools. There are a couple of other schools, but I'm not sure if I will take a visit to any other schools."
