Auburn Makes Big Impression On Big QB

Class of 2013 quarterback prospect Max Staver talks about his interest in Auburn and the Tigers' new QB coach.

Brentwood, Tenn.--Max Staver, a big quarterback from Brentwood Academy, spent Saturday in Auburn checking out the Tigers and came away impressed with the campus and the coaches, especially Scot Loeffler, who is in charge of the quarterbacks.

"It was an awesome visit, I absolutely loved it," Staver said. "Coach Loeffler is the man. I love him. The facilities are awesome. Practice is intense, it is upbeat. The guys get going out there.

"Auburn is at the top of my list," he added. "It is up there. I am real excited to move forward in the process."

Staver, who said he is six-foot-six, 238 pounds with nine percent body fat, transferred to Brentwood Academy from John Paul II High in Hendersonville. He noted that his visit to Auburn this past weekend was his first one to the AU campus.

Staver is shown in action as a junior.

He is getting attention from a large number of colleges. So far his only SEC offer is from Mississippi State. He is hoping to add one from the Tigers.

The QB plans to attend a lot of summer camps on college campuses this summer in hopes of increasing the number of offers and to get a feel for which program would be the best fit. Staver said he hopes to make his college choice prior to the start of his senior season.

"I have to hit the road this summer and I am going to target about nine or 10 schools and I am going to camp there," he said. "I have been to Mississippi State's junior day, Purdue's junior day and Auburn's junior day. I am getting it organized and getting a plan together."

Staver noted that he hopes to figure out where he wants to play his college football prior to the start of his senior season. "We have game film on Saturdays so it is tough to travel in the fall," he said. "I would like to have a decision by mid to late summer."

Asked what he likes about Loeffler, Staver said, "He is down to earth and he tells you everything straight up. He has been around the great ones and coached the great ones. He knows it all. He can prepare you for the NFL like no other so I am real thrilled to spend time with him."
