2014 Wide Receiver Enjoys Auburn Visit

Demarre Kitt talks about his visit to Auburn, what he likes about the Tigers, and updates his top five.

Tyrone, Ga.—While it was a holiday for students on Monday, 2014 wide receiver Demarre Kitt made it a working day as he took a trip down I-85 to visit the Auburn Tigers and spend time with Coach Gus Malzahn.

Very familiar with the Auburn campus already, he said it was a great chance to get to know the new coach more and get familiar with his offense.

"It was fun," Kitt said. "I got to meet every single one personally. I sat down and talked with Coach (Dameyune) Craig, Coach (Rhett) Lashlee and Coach Malzahn. I just got a good feeling. All of them are real people.

"Coach Malzahn, he taught Coach (Chad) Morris all he knows and I really like Clemson's offense," he added. "I really like Auburn's offense and want to see what they do this coming up year."

Rated a four-star wide receiver and expected to be one of the best at his position in the country next year, Kitt has dozens of offers already and is hoping to get his recruiting out of the way early. At 6-1, 193 he has the size and speed to be a difference maker for any offense and he said that's what Malzahn told him about how he would be used with the Tigers.

"They see me as a special player," Kitt said, "a downfield threat or a person that can just get in the open field. They see me as the next elite receiver coming through.

"I really like their offense and I think their staff is real cool," he added. "I just have to get down here a lot more and see what I really want to do."

A veteran of the recruiting game even though he's still just a junior, Kitt has well over a dozen offers already, including his most recent one coming from the Oregon Ducks. Just taking his time with the recruiting process at the moment the 6-1, 190-pounder said at the moment he's got Ohio State and Clemson as his favorites with Auburn, Georgia and Oregon rounding out his top five.

As a junior Kitt caught 74 passes for 1,235 yards and 11 touchdowns and also added a punt return for a score. Despite sharing passes with Jaquay Williams as a sophomore he still managed 42 receptions for 651 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2011.
