Tall Tight End Shines At Auburn Camp

Football prospect Sean Culkin, who has been on the camp circuit, talks about his experience at Auburn.

Largo, Fla.--After standing out at last Friday evening's Dawg Night football camp at the University of Georgia, tight end prospect Sean Culkin did the same thing less than 24 hours later at Auburn's one-day July prospect camp.

The six-foot-five, 215-pound rising senior from Indian Rocks Christian showed he can run well and has excellent hands.

"The Auburn camp was good and we learned a lot of stuff with their assistant coach (Jay Boulware)," Culkin says. "The majority of the time it was seven-on-seven and one-on-one so it was a good time to compete."

Auburn's coaches obviously liked what they saw out of Culkin, who had previously visited campus to watch an Auburn football game vs. Georgia.

"I talked to the offensive coordinator (Gus Malzahn) and he said they are going to try to get me back for another day so I can have more time to spend with them," the prospect says.

As a junior he caught 28 passes for nine touchdowns while averaging almost 20 yards per reception. He also added 22 tackles and an interception as a safety.

Also a college prospect in basketball, Culkin says that he is concentrating on getting a scholarship in football. He notes that he already has offers from FIU, Furman, Liberty, Samford and Iowa State plus Liberty, where his brother Ryan Culkin played tight end.

Culkin, who had previously visited the University of Florida, is expected to return to Gainesville for UF'S Friday Night Lights Camp.
