Auburn Expecting Talent For Team Camp

Auburn's Team Camp takes place on Thursday and Friday with several top prospects expected to join their teams.

Auburn, Ala.--After having both the Auburn Fantasy Camp and the Tiger Camp since last Saturday on the Plains, the Auburn Tigers and Coach Gene Chizik kick off the second half of camp week in style with 21 teams expected in for the 2011 Team Camp.

From inside the state programs such as Abbeville, Greensboro, Huntsville, Auburn, Prattville Christian, Saint Jude and Smiths Station are expected to be in Auburn for the camp that takes place beginning Thursday afternoon and runs through Friday afternoon.

Among the players to watch from in-state are a trio of kids from Auburn High. Senior linemen Caleb Peterson and Clay Machen are both very capable prospects with Peterson already having offers from across the country. At quarterback is junior Cameron Luper. The son of Auburn running backs Coach Curtis Luper, he's a dynamic player that had a huge first season as the starter for the Tigers in 2010.

Abbeville has Jerrel Nelson and Quin Sampson to pay attention to while Greensboro features James Brown. At Huntsville High Azaria Green and Will Nunn are two to watch.

The State of Georgia will be well represented as the camp as well with Banneker High from College Park, Chapel Hill High from Douglasville, Creekside High from Fairburn, Creekview High from Canton, Harrison High from Kennesaw, Tattnall Square Academy from Macon, Turner County High from Ashburn, Westfield High from Perry, LaGrange High and Woodstock High all scheduled to take part in the camp.

The Berry twins from Creekside High

That group should have plenty of players to watch with Auburn commitment Josh Holsey from Creekside leading the charge. Davion Tookes is also a cornerback worth watching as he's committed to Virginia Tech. The team also features twins Elliot Berry and Evan Berry, two of the top sophomores in the country.

At Banneker Chaz Elder is a player that has drawn interest from across the country and he'll be joined by teammates Justin Henderson, Artravious James, and Jarry Jefferson. Junior linebacker Marcus Albert could wind up being the best of the bunch from Banneker.
