Toney Talks About Auburn, Recruiting

Cameron Toney was on the Auburn campus and the linebacker talks about his trip and the football Tigers.

Huntsville, Ala.--Cameron Toney was on the Auburn campus recently to spend time with the coaches and watch his younger brother participate in a football camp.

The class of 2013 Auburn commitment says the experience went well.

"I just wanted to hang out," he says of his latest recent trip to Auburn, the college he committed to on April 14th. "My brother (13-year-old Montrell Toney) went through the camp. I wanted to have a great time, get to know people and build my connection with the coaches."

Toney came away from the event looking forward to his opportunity to play for the Tigers in 2013 and his upcoming senior season at Huntsville High.

"I am excited about my commitment and I am 100 percent with it," he says. "I love Auburn and every opportunity I get I love to go down there."

The linebacker notes that he is currently 6-3, 220 pounds. This summer during his workouts he has been concentrating on speed in preparation for his final fall of high school football.

"We are going to have a great team," he predicts. "We may be small, but we are going to very competitive because we have a lot of guys who love to compete."

Toney is part of an Auburn recruiting class that is currently ranked in Scout's Top 10 after adding quarterback Jason Smith and linebacker Reuben Foster and following that with another commitment from a highly-rated prospect, running back Jordan Wilkins.

Toney says the group is impressive. "It is especially so on defense," he says. "We picked up Reuben and I am glad he is coming. I think he is 100 percent also. We are going to have a good class."

The Tigers have commitments from highly rated defensive linemen and are looking to add to the group. Toney notes that he hopes his future team can add a five-star defensive tackle to the group. "It will be especially impressive if we can get Montravius Adams,"?he says of Scout's No. 1 ranked defensive tackle prospect from Dooly County High in Vienna, Ga.

"I am excited about our class," says Toney, who notes he stays in touch with the Auburn coaching staff. "Every now and then I call them and we talk about family and things--not too much football because this isn't football season," Toney points out.

The linebacker is scheduled to graduate from high school in May, but has not decided what he plans to major in as a collegian. "It is coming down to electrical engineering, mechanical engineering or physical therapy," he says, noting he has plenty of time to make a selection.

His junior year at Huntsville High was a success athletically and academically. On the field Toney made 120 tackles with eight sacks, three interceptions and four forced fumbles. In the classroom he did well, too. "I ended my last nine weeks with A's and B's," he says.
