Speedy 2015 Prospect Sees Changes At Auburn

Elite 2015 athlete Terry Godwin talks about his Sunday visit to Auburn and gives his impressions of the new coaching staff.

Hogansville, Ga.--A talented two-way standout at Callaway High School, 5-11, 170 Terry Godwin is expected to be one of the top football prospects in the country for the 2015 recruiting class. Already with close to a dozen offers from top programs, Godwin took a visit on Sunday to check out the Auburn Tigers along with his family.

Spending time with the coaching staff, including Coach Rodney Garner, Godwin said his second trip to Auburn in the last two months went very well and he was especially impressed by the attitude surrounding Gus Malzahn and his staff.

"It was great," Godwin told Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I loved the way the coaches treated me and how they were sitting down and talking to my mom and dad about how they were going to run things. They are going to change some things around."

Godwin makes a play at Auburn's Team Camp in June.

Coming off a disastrous 3-9 season that prompted a coaching change on the Plains, Godwin said he feels the confidence and determination surrounding the program heading into the 2013 season.

"This coaching staff seems like it's going to make the organization do a whole 360 from what it was last year," Godwin said. "That's great to hear. I still have to look around. I can't say they are my top school yet."

Capable of playing either defensive back or wide receiver on the next level, Godwin said that Auburn plans to give him that option in a select role if he were to choose the Tigers. Hearing more cornerback from Auburn, the speedster said that's fine with him as long as he gets to touch the football too.

"They have told me that I could do that, but it would be a special package," Godwin noted. "They said most players can do it, but it just takes a little longer for them to learn both sides of the ball. As long as I get to play both sides of the ball I'm okay with that."

Currently with offers from Auburn, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Ole Miss, North Carolina, Tennessee, Vanderbilt and a handful of other schools, Godwin said that he currently doesn't have any favorites and hopes to begin narrowing down his list of of schools sometime this fall. Hoping to get to a top five sometime before the end of his junior season, Godwin said he plans to make his decision before his senior year at Callaway.
