DB Cameron Sutton Looking for Second Home

Defensive back Cameron Sutton talks about his recent visit to Auburn and where he stands with recruiting.

Jonesboro, Ga.--With his focus on the baseball season at Jonesboro High School, Cameron Sutton is taking the football recruiting process slowly this spring.

However, football is not totally on the backburner. He took a visit right up the road to Georgia Tech earlier this spring and a drive down I-85 to Auburn last weekend.

"It went very well," Sutton said of his trip to Auburn to check out the Tigers during spring drills. "The practice was up-tempo. I really got to know the coaching staff well. It was a great atmosphere and definitely a place I could make my second home. It's a place I could definitely see myself playing at."

Sutton said he spent most of his time on the visit talking with defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder, defensive backs coach Willie Martinez and head coach Gene Chizik.

"(VanGorder is) a great guy," Sutton said of the new Auburn coordinator. "He likes to have fun. He's all about the team, all about winning and all about building the program. That's what I like to see. He said he likes my ball skills, how I react to the ball. He also likes me as a returner as well.

"Chizik talked about me coming back, seeing me again and trying to come for the spring game as well," Sutton added.

Sutton said he has offers from "Arkansas, Ole Miss, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Florida and Missouri" and is receiving interest from "Miami, Louisville, Oklahoma State and a lot of different school. Auburn is very interested in me and looking for me to come back."

The class of 2013 prospect said he'll likely wait until the middle of his senior football season to make a decision on a college.

"I have no favorites right now," he explained. "I'm all medium right now on all of the schools. Right now I'm in the process of trying to get to know all of the coaches.

"The academics are the most important part about going to any school, and just a place where I can make my second home," Sutton added. "Plus, I like the big lights. I like the big scene. A place I can show my talents and skills."

At 6-0, 175, Sutton said his best 40 time is a 4.45.
