2015 QB Prospect Discusses Auburn Visit

Talented 2015 quarterback Tyler Queen talks about his trip to Auburn on Wednesday, recruiting, and more.

A standout at North Cobb High in Kennesaw, Ga., 2015 quarterback Tyler Queen had a big day on Wednesday. Starting his day in Tuscaloosa and picking up an offer from Alabama, he finished it off by stopping in Auburn. Spending time with the coaching staff and checking out the campus, the 6-2, 210 junior-to-be says he liked what he saw from the Tigers.

"I got a good feel for the campus because I got a tour of things," Queen says. "I got a chance to talk to Coach Lashlee. I got a good feel for the atmosphere at Auburn. I like it so far.

"Coach Lashlee was going to talk with Coach Malzahn after he got back from his event (Regions Tradition golf tournament) he had today and they were going to let me know (about a possible offer). Hopefully I can make it down Sunday for the one-day camp and I'll probably come back for that this weekend."

Making his first trip to the Plains, Queen says there were several things that stood out to him about his visit and most of it centered around the campus.

"I liked everything really," Queen says. "They made a very good first impression on me. The lifestyle on campus, the coaches, the relationships with the players, the facilities, everything is first class. I just fell in love with it for the first time. It was pretty awesome to get to experience it."

Already with early offers from North Carolina, Buffalo and Middle Tennessee, the strong-armed quarterback says that being able to see Auburn and get a feel for the campus was huge for him as he begins to put together his list of favorites heading into the 2013 season. The trip continued a busy day for him that started with a drive to Alabama and a workout for the coaching staff.

"The day started early at four o'clock in the morning," Queen says. "I threw for Coach Nuss (Doug Nussmeier) and Coach Saban this morning. After I talked to Coach Saban I got straight in the car and headed to Auburn. It was a busy day, but thankful for what came out of it."

An athletic quarterback than ran for close to 1,000 yards and 20 touchdowns in 2012 while adding 2,607 yards passing and 23 more scores, Queen says the ability to run and throw makes him excited about what he sees from Auburn's offense.

"They run pretty much the exact same offense as we run," Queen notes. "I feel like it's a great fit for me. It's just about building the relationships and seeing what goes on later down the road."

Planning to visit Clemson on Thursday, Georgia on Saturday and another visit to Auburn on Sunday before heading to Tennessee and North Carolina next week, Queen says he's just planning to take his time before making a decision. He adds that he'll get a top five or six following his junior year with the hopes of making a commitment next summer heading into his senior season.
