2012 Lineman Plans to Camp at Auburn

Class of 2012 football prospect Bobby Pugh talks about visiting Auburn and how recruiting is going.

DeFuniak Springs, Fla.--A player hoping to showcase his abilities this season and turn that into a college scholarship is Bobby Pugh from Walton Senior High.

At 6-2, 280 pounds and the ability to play both sides of the ball in high school, he's a player who could be an interesting prospect for coaches on the next level looking for versatility in a player.

Recently Pugh took a trip to Auburn to check out the Tigers for their annual A-Day game at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Watching the defending national champions on the field proved to be a very fun day for the good-natured Pugh.

"It was great," he said. "I got to meet a lot of coaches. They sent me a letter to come up and talk. They invited me up and I was very happy to come. It's not the first time I've been there and won't be the last time I'll be back. I'm very happy I was invited though. They looked good out there."

Playing mostly left guard and defensive tackle in high school, Pugh said he's just hoping to get a shot on the next level no matter if it's offense or defense he'll be playing. He noted at the moment he's hearing from several schools, but no offers at the moment.

"I have been getting looks from Louisville, Army and a bunch of smaller schools," Pugh said. "I've been to LSU as well. I like Auburn, LSU and Florida State."

While it's not the closest school to him on his list, Pugh said there is just a lot to like about Auburn at the moment.

"I just love the atmosphere around there," Pugh said. "They just seem like a real big family. Everything just seems really great there. It just seems like it's a good place to be."

He said he plans to camp at both Auburn and Florida State this summer heading into his senior season.
