T.J. Yeldon, the state of Alabama's top running back prospect for the 2012 signee class, attended Auburn's prospect camp on Sunday, but did it as a spectator. He notes that all of the colleges he is interested in have offered him scholarships.
"I am just chillin' this summer," he says. "I am visiting campuses and relaxing some. I just came back from Alabama. I camped one day there and chilled for the rest of it. I had to go back home for a basketball game. My high school team was at a team camp."
He is also is working out regulary with a personal trainer. "We work out twice a day five days a week," he says.
"I am 6-1 1/2, 210 pounds," the rising senior says. "I am trying to get to at least 215 pounds. I am also trying to get much stronger than I am right now."
Yeldon rushed for 1,112 yards and 18 touchdowns as a junior and caught 34 passes for 504 yards and five touchdowns for a powerful Daphne team that won the Class 6A state title.
"I think we are going to have a pretty good team and we will have a chance to repeat," he says. "I don't know if we will be better than last year's team, which was really good, but we have a chance to be as good."
The running back prospect says he is in good shape academically headed into his senior year. "I haven't decided on a major for college," he notes. "My GPA is around a 3.1 or 3.2."
Earlier he mentioned that he might announce his college choice at the U.S. Army All-American Game in San Antonio. "Hopefully, I will make my choice before the start of the season," he says.
What is he hoping to find in a college destination. "I am looking for a place with a family atmosphere where I get along with the coaches, the players and the fans," he says.
