Cornerback Performs Well at Auburn Camp

A prospect from Florida talks about his football camp experience at Auburn.

Jacksonville, Fla.--One of the most aggressive defensive backs at Auburn's one-day football prospect camp in July, Shaq Beverly is expected to start for a third consecutive season this fall for First Coast High School.

Willing to take on all receivers at the Auburn camp, the 5-9, 185-pound rising senior showed that he is quick and physical.

"I like to play press-on coverage even though I can play off," he says. "I am very physical and I have recovery speed. I am very good with my hands and my feet so I just apply it to the game."

An early commitment to Troy, Beverly says he has a best time of 4.47 in the 40. He works out with the track team for speed training, but focuses on football throughout the year.

Beverly had several good battles with Ricardo Louis, an Auburn receiver commitment from Miami, at the one-day camp. "I told him I appreciated the work," the cornerback says.

Beverly notes he didn't win any football honors as a junior, but says he has been told he is being considered for a Super 11 all-star team in the Jacksonville area for his senior year.

He made the trip to the Auburn camp with a large group of teammates from First Coast. "Even though I committed to Troy it was worth coming," he says. "The competition was great and the camp was very organized and I like the facilities. I had a lot of fun."
