Top 2015 OL Takes In Auburn

Talented 2015 offensive tackle Mitch Hyatt from North Gwinnett (Ga.) High talks about his visit to Auburn.

Suwanee, Ga.--A standout offensive tackle from North Gwinnett High, 2015 prospect Mitch Hyatt is expected to be one of the top players in the country at his position in next year's class. On Tuesday he took a visit to Auburn to check out the Tigers and get a feel for the program.

Spending time with Coach J.B. Grimes and getting a feel for the program, Hyatt said overall his first trip to Auburn was a good one and he enjoyed his brief visit.

"It went good," the 6-7, 260 Hyatt said. "It's a great place. I liked all the facilities. It's a nice place. The coaches were good. It's just a great place to be."

With an offer from Auburn just over two months ago Hyatt said he wanted to take a look at everything on the Plains and get introduced to the program. Now that he's seen things he said he's looking forward to learning more.

"I really liked it," Hyatt said. "It was a great place. Everything was nice about it. There weren't any setbacks for me. Coach Grimes is a funny dude. He is just really outgoing and is a good coach. I like him a lot."

Already with offers from all over the country including Clemson, Georgia, Louisville, North Carolina, Ohio State, Texas, UCLA and USC, Hyatt said that it's crazy to think how things have just exploded in his recruiting in the last few months.

"It's definitely weird to think about it," Hyatt said. "I'm just open to anything right now, but Auburn made a move today and I'm definitely going to consider them."

Hyatt made the trip with teammate and talented defensive end Anree Saint-Amour. A 2015 defensive end prospect already with an offer from Missouri, Saint-Amour said that he also liked his first look at the Auburn Tigers.

"I love it there," the 6-3, 225 Saint-Amour said. "They told me I need to get a little big bigger and that they would be watching me this season. That's pretty exciting to hear."
