Return Trip To AU Could Be Big For 2015 QB

2015 QB prospect Tyler Queen will visit Auburn on Wednesday and it could be a huge visit for both he and the Tigers.

Kennesaw, Ga.—Already with eight offers and plenty more sure to come, talented 2015 quarterback Tyler Queen has been a busy man this summer. Camping at schools all over the Southeast and also showing out at both the IMG 7-on-7 and at Cam Newton's 7-on-7, Queen has entrenched himself as one of the players to watch in next year's class.

On Wednesday the 6-2, 210 Queen will make a return trip to see the Auburn Tigers and this time he'll bring along his mother to see the school that has rocketed to the top of his list in recent months. With the Tigers a clear leader over number two North Carolina, Queen says he's looking forward to showing his parents what he already knows.

"It's a visit that will let me to continue to build my relationship with Coach (Tim) Horton and Coach (Gus) Malzahn and Coach (Rhett) Lashlee," Queen tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "That's the main thing. This will be the first time my mom will be able to see the campus and meet the coaches so that's another big thing that will go on while we're there.

"It's a really big deal for me," he adds. "I don't want to make a decision that my family isn't comfortable with. It's going to be about getting everybody on the same page really."

Already a visitor twice to the Auburn campus since the spring, Queen has seen just about everything there is to see about the Tigers and Malzahn's program. With a good idea of what life would be like should he choose them, Queen notes it's the coaching staff that makes the difference for him.

"I think they're starting to turn the program around and they're doing a great job with that," Queen says. "They have a great coaching staff and great facilities. The campus is super nice. They just have a certain vibe I feel when I'm down there and I want to be around it and be a part of it. There is something positive going on and hopefully I can be a part of it one day."

With Auburn ahead of North Carolina and offers such as Alabama, Clemson, Louisville and Miami all behind, Queen says he's not sure when he'll make his decision but with plenty of time left until it's time to choose he notes if the time is right it could be sooner rather than later.

"I'm kind of playing things by ear right now," Queen says. "We'll see how things go on Wednesday. I'm not sure when I'll make my decision. It could be as early as tomorrow or it could be later on. I'll just have to see how it goes when I get down there."
