Murphy Junior Trio Checks Out Auburn

Juniors Kameron Maye and Gary Moore from Murphy High in Mobile talk about visiting Auburn.

Mobile, Ala.—While the last official visit weekend was a big one leading up to national signing day it was also a time when several young players got their first glimpse of Auburn and the new coaching staff. Among the players on the Plains on the first weekend in February were three juniors from Murphy High expected to be among the best in Alabama next season.

While defensive lineman Taylor Stallworth may be the most well-known of the juniors right now, two more Murphy standouts are also worth keeping an eye on and they took in the sights on the Auburn campus as well.

At 6-0, 178, speedy Kameron Maye is already hearing from Auburn, Alabama, Florida State, Mississippi State and several other schools. Being recruited as an athlete capable of playing quarterback, running back, or wide receiver on the next level, Maye says he enjoyed getting the opportunity to meet Coach Gus Malzahn and offensive co-coordinators Rhett Lashlee and Dameyune Craig.

"It was a learning experience," Maye says. "It was very, very fun. I just look forward to being back up there.

"I like the hospitality. It's one of the main things that stands out to me."

One of the coaches at Auburn that continues to make an impact on the recruiting trail is Craig. A Mobile native and standout at Blount High School, Craig's success story is something Maye says he's very familiar with.

"He's easy to relate to," Maye says. "He came from Mobile and he knows where we are coming from. He's just a wonderful person all the way around."

The younger brother of Minnesota freshman wide receiver K.J. Maye, Kameron says he hopes to visit the Golden Gophers this spring in addition to Alabama and Florida State.

Gary Moore

Also a versatile athlete, Gary Moore is a much bigger version however at 6-3, 275 and the ability to play defensive end or tight end on the next level. Hearing from much of the SEC already but still waiting on his first offer, Moore says he enjoyed the opportunity to learn more about the Tigers.

"The visit went good," Moore says. "It was a good look. I just wanted to see how it is around there. It was a lot of good stuff.

"It looks like they are a good coaching staff. I like the defensive line coach, the tight end coach and the coordinators. I talked to Coach Malzahn and he told me a lot of good things about how the living environment is and what they are building."
