Bray Discusses Visit to Auburn And Recruiting

Four-star prospect and All-American Quan Bray gives his impressions of his official visit to Auburn.

LaGrange, Ga.--Four-star prospect Quan Bray gave his official visit to Auburn a big thumbs up review after spending the weekend in Auburn with his parents and younger brother.

"Being around the players and coaches at Auburn, I really felt like I was at home," Bray said on Sunday. "Everything was really good with the visit. I enjoyed everything about the visit."

Commenting on his interest in Coach Gene Chizik's Tigers, Bray said, "It would be a great fit for me and I could see myself playing there," he said.

Bray said he hit it off with the Auburn players on the visit and he had two of the team's top offensive performers, wide receiver Darvin Adams and running back Onterio McCalebb, as his player hosts.

The high school senior noted that Auburn is recruiting him as an all-purpose type of player who could play receiver, return kicks, play wildcat quarterback and even line up some at running back. "That is the type of stuff I want to do," he said.

Bray isn't tipping his hand on saying who his leader is, but he said the Tigers remain in his top group of schools like they have been for a long time.

Earlier this month he took an official visit to the University of Georgia and noted he may make official visits to Alabama and Florida in January, but added he may announce his college choice during the Under Armour All-American game that he will play in January. Bray noted that he will report to the all-star game for practice on Dec. 31st.

Commenting on what are the major factors going into his college choice decision, Bray said, "What my family feels about everything and the offenses and stuff, what is the best fit for me and where I could see myself coming in and making an impact."

The Troup County High standout said that he believes his family likes Auburn, too. "I think they enjoyed it, too," he said. "The coaches made them feel like they were at home.

"You feel like you are at home," he said of visiting Auburn. "Everybody takes care you of you and it just feels family oriented. Everything was all good, everything went real well."

He said the Friday night senior banquet was well done as was a Heisman Trophy skit where the recruits acted out a scene making believe they just won the Heisman like Auburn's Cameron Newton did.

Bray said he felt like his senior season was a success after he transferred to Troup County High from Callaway. "I feel like it went real good," he said. "I rushed for 1,300 yards and had 200-300 more as a receiver."

He is the cousin of former Auburn cornerback Jason Bray, someone the prospect talks to regularly about recruiting. Bray said that his cousin Jason told him it is his decision on where to attend college and he is not going to try to push him to Auburn just because he played there, but Jason Bray is not shy about saying he would like to see Quan follow in his footsteps to Auburn.

Currently playing basketball, he said, "We are doing real well. I think our record is 10-1. I play one, two an three for the team."
