2013 Prospect Makes Return Visit To Auburn

Jacksonville (Fla.) 2013 prospect Nick Washington discusses his second trip to Auburn.

Jacksonville, Fla.—After receiving an offer from the Auburn Tigers, talented 2013 prospect Nick Washington decided to take a visit to the Plains to check out Coach Gene Chizik's program. On Wednesday he was back again along with his family to get another look at Auburn and again the Trinity Christian standout was impressed.

"It was nice," Washington said. "We checked the dorms out, the game field, some of the practice facilities, the weight room, pretty much everything there is nice."

Visiting just over two weeks ago while on a tour of schools that has included Alabama, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt, and South Carolina, Washington said this time around it was much quieter on the Auburn campus with a lot of athletic department personnel on vacation including many of the coaches. It didn't stop him from getting some good quality time with Auburn cornerbacks Coach Phillip Lolley though.

"It was very laid back and nice," Washington said. "It helps me a lot because I got to see how everything works. When you go to Auburn it's not just about playing on Saturdays. You have to get your school work or you don't play. I saw that at Auburn."

Being recruited as a combo defensive back by the Tigers that could play either cornerback or safety, the 6-0, 180 Washington said there is a lot to like about Auburn at the moment.

"I like everything about Auburn," Washington said. "I really like Coach Lolley too. He's a real cool guy."

Already with close to 10 offers from some of the top football programs in the country Washington could get his decision out of the way very early and just enjoy his final two years. Instead he said he's just going to take his time to make sure he makes the right decision for both he and his family.

"I'm just going with the flow," Washington said. "I'm just waiting. It helps (to take visits) because I don't have to wait for a long time or feel rushed. I can just take my time."

Also a standout baseball player that made the visit over from Atlanta while playing in the East Cobb Summer League, Washington said he hopes to play both sports on the next level and it's something Auburn has said will be possible if he chooses the Tigers. As a sophomore Washington made 90 tackles with five interceptions.
