C.J. Posey Taking in Junior Days

Russellville athlete C.J. Posey gives his take on his visit to Auburn for a junior day.

Russellville, Ala.--Football prospect C.J. Posey of Russellville High School has been at a junior day for three straight weekends. His latest visit was to check out the Auburn Tigers.

He had previously enjoyed visits to Starkville and Tuscaloosa the weeks before, and gave Auburn good reviews as well.

"It thought it was pretty good," Posey said of his trip to Auburn. "The coaching staff--they were really nice. I liked how they interacted with all of the players and explained about how family was the most important key to everything, and academics so I thought it was pretty good.

"We got to go see the weight room and hear the strength coach talk about not to bench press, but mainly to squat because that's going to help us with speed and get our 40 times faster. Then we got to go and see what a day in the life is like at Auburn going from class to class, going to tutors, coming to practice and working out and getting stronger."

Posey doesn't hold any offers at this point, but it isn't because of his 40 time. At 5-10, 180 pounds, he claims a 4.25. Whether that's hand-timed or what, Posey is fast and is a weapon on offense.

"I'm categorized as an athlete because I can play running back, slot receiver, kick returner or cornerback, so wherever coach needs me I've got you," Posey explained. "The Auburn coaches like me anywhere because I can fit in any placement that they have. They like anywhere I can go."

Posey attended Harrison High School in Kennesaw, Ga., up until his junior year and missed the first three games of last season. In eight games last year he racked up some solid numbers.

"I know my all-purpose yards were 1,248 yards from kick return, receiving and rushing," he said. "Russellville used me mainly as running back and slot receiver because they knew my strength was trying to get to the outside. They needed that type of player with an ability to get outside speed instead of running up the middle with all of the linebackers."

Posey doesn't have any other junior days planned as of now, but he is drawing interest from plenty of SEC schools.

"I have no offers currently, but I have major interest from Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, and I'm getting a little interest from the University of Alabama," he noted. "Auburn is starting to show a little interest as well. As far as schools that I like, I currently don't have a top. I like Alabama, Auburn, Georgia and Ole Miss as of now."
