Juco Wideout To Visit Tigers

Auburn will have three official visitors on campus this weekend, including a junior college player currently committed to LSU.

Raymond, Miss.--Looking for help at the wide receiver position, the Auburn Tigers will bring in a junior college prospect for an official visit this weekend along with a pair of players already committed to Gene Chizik's football team.

A verbal commitment to LSU since May, 6-4 wide receiver Quantavius Leslie from Hinds Community College is a big playmaker who originally chose the Bengal Tigers over Auburn, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Oklahoma State, Tennessee, Washington and several other schools. As a freshman in 2011 Leslie caught 28 passes for 523 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Originally from Callaway High in Hogansville, Ga., Leslie was a high school teammate of Auburn freshman tight end Ricky Parks. A commitment to West Virginia in high school before having to enroll in junior college, Leslie is rated a four-star by Scout.com.

In addition to Leslie, Auburn is expected to have safety prospect Lemond Johnson as well as kicker Daniel Carlson on campus for official visits. A talented player who is a standout on both sides of the ball for Cooper City, Fla., High, the 6-0, 190 Johnson is expected to get a look at both safety and nickel for the Tigers.

Carlson is a standout at The Classical Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., and rated the number four kicker in the nation by Scout.com.

A visitor who has made some big noise already, despite being just a junior, is defensive back Quincy Wilson from University School near Miami. The son of a former Miami Hurricanes' player, Wilson already has more than 20 offers from around the country including Auburn, Clemson, Florida, LSU, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and South Carolina.

Auburn takes on Texas A&M at 6 p.m. CDT Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium. The game can be seen on ESPNU.
