Frost Excited About Future With Tigers

Auburn commitment Kris Frost talks about his trip to see the Tigers over the weekend.

Matthews, N.C.--After taking multiple visits to Auburn, some of them on a bus from North Carolina to Alabama, commitment Kris Frost finally took his official visit to see coach Gene Chizik and his staff over the weekend. With Auburn celebrating the BCS National Championship as part of the big weekend he said it was a great time to be on the Plains.

"That atmosphere was great because a lot of teams don't get that crowd even on game day," Frost said. "For that to work out like that was truly amazing. Auburn fans love their football and it shows every time there is something football-related. I was excited about it and my family was excited about it."

Frost's journey to be an Auburn commitment is quite different than most. Choosing the Tigers on national television at the U.S. Army All-American Game in San Antonio just two days before the title game against Oregon, Frost was left hanging while the Auburn tried to find a spot for him in the class. In the end it worked out and that's what Frost said is all that matters.

"A lot of people didn't expect me to commit to Auburn and there was a bit of a ruffle if they would have room," Frost said. "We really just tried to work our way through it and see how it would go. Then recruiting kind of came up again and other coaches started calling me. Pretty much the whole time I knew I would have my chance to go to Auburn. That's really what I kept my head on straight for and the direction I kept going in.

"I can't be upset because they might not have had room for me," he addded. "There are 50 other guys fighting for the same spot that are just as good as I am. I understand that. Guys coming from different states are fighting to get into that university. That's just the way it is, it's a numbers game and you have to suck it up. I did the best I could do with recruiting and I feel like I came out on top."

With the ability to play either offense or defense on the next level, Frost said he's excited about having his first opportunity at wide receiver when he gets to Auburn.

"I would like to play receiver," Frost said. "That's my ultimate goal. If something was to happen and I couldn't break into the lineup it would be easy to move back to linebacker. I'm comfortable at both positions. I'm just excited to be there. I'm excited to be going there. I can't wait for it to start up."

Spending time with Kiehl Frazier and several future teammates on his trip, Frost said one of the most important things he did over the weekend was just relaxing and getting to know the guys he'll be playing with the next four or five years.

"There is going to be a whole lot of down time in college," Frost said. "This kind of got me to see that and get a feel for it. It really reminded me that I have to feel comfortable on the campus every day and just seeing all the same faces. I'm perfectly comfortable beign there with the coaching staff and players."

With his decision behind him and his official visit, Frost said now he's just ready for Feb. 2 when he can sign on the dotted line and become an Auburn Tiger.

"I know I'm going to that wonderful university and I'm excited about it," Frost said. "I can stop saying ‘if I go there'. Now it's going to happen. I can't wait to get going and have things to accomplish. That's what I talked to my parents about and they are excited. So are all the coaches. We're just pumped up and ready to go."
