Printz Makes Return Visit To Auburn

Quarterback prospect Eddie Printz discusses his second trip to Auburn and where he stands with his commitment to UCLA.

Marietta, Ga.—A UCLA commitment, 6-4, 205 Eddie Printz from Lassiter High was on the Auburn campus for the second time in a month on Friday as teammate Juwan Dickey and friend Ryan Jenkins came over to watch the Tigers in spring practice. Having already seen the campus and facilities, Printz said this trip was strictly to see what Auburn and the coaches were like on the field.

"It was good," Printz said. "I got to watch the coaches actually coach this time. I got to see them in action instead of just talking to them in the office. I got to watch them on the field doing their own thing."

In particular Printz said he was excited to be able to see Auburn OC Scot Loeffler in action. Known for his ability to produce quarterbacks with names such as Tom Brady, Brian Griese, Chad Henne and Tim Tebow among his pupils, Loeffler made an impression on Printz during the morning practice.

"It was really good," Printz said. "I'm glad I got to see what he does and how he coaches and all that. He's new to Auburn and I'm glad I got to watch him. He was very loud, which is good. He came down on the kids, but picked them back up. I liked his coaching staff and what he had to offer."

Currently Auburn has just three scholarship quarterbacks on campus and nobody that has stepped up into the lead for the starting job. With a fourth coming in for fall practice the Tigers still won't be overloaded at the position. That's something that Printz said doesn't hurt when he thinks about Auburn.

"I feel like I could come in and compete for a starting job," Printz said. "That's exciting. It's a great opportunity."

While he hasn't backed off his decision to be a Bruin, Printz said at the moment he's just weighing his options. With still 10 months to go before signing day he said he owes it to himself to continue to explore to make sure he makes the right decision.

"I'm committed to UCLA, but like I tell people I want to go somewhere that best fits me," Printz said. "I'm going to keep searching until I know I have made the correct choice. When that day comes I'll sign with that school."
