Power Forward Enthusiastic About AU Visit

Basketball prospect Brandon Mobley, a prep school standout who is originally from Georgia, discusses his weekend in Auburn and recruiting.

Deerfield, Wisc.--Brandon Mobley gave his official visit to Auburn a big thumb's up review on Sunday night after returning to his prep school home, St. John's Northwestern Military Academy where he put up impressive numbers on the basketball court this season.

"This visit to Auburn was just great," the power forward tells Inside the Auburn Tigers. "I like Auburn's coaches and the people I?met there. I really like the campus and the new arena is really impressive. I had a lot of fun on my visit and I feel like Auburn is a place that would be a good fit for me."

Originally from Savannah, Ga., where he was a standout performer at Windsor Forest High School, Mobley says he averaged 25 points, eight rebounds and four blocked shots this past season for a 15-11 team that played a demanding schedule featuring some of the top prep school squads in the nation such as Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia.

"The competition was really good and I was pleased with the way I played," says Mobley, who notes that his team was very competitive, even in losses to a variety of strong opponents.

Mobley says that he currently weighs 215 pounds and that Auburn is recruiting him as a "four," the power forward position. He points out that he was effective scoring on the post this past season and was able to face up and score on his jump shot from out to three-point range.

Auburn is one of five colleges the forward mentions that he is considering signing with this spring. He will be a freshman for the 2011-2012 college season.

"Auburn is my strong favorite right now because I had such a good visit and I bonded with the current players on the team," he says. "Another thing I like that Auburn is not too far from my home in Savannah.

"Next week I will visit Seton Hall and then I will visit USC," Mobley says. "I have already taken unofficial visits to DePaul and Providence so I am not sure if I need to go back and visit them again. I should be ready to make my decision by the time we go on spring break (March 17)."
