Auburn Impresses 2015 O-Line Prospect

Milton (Ga.) High standout Nick Wilson discusses his visit to Auburn on Saturday and what he likes about the Tigers.

Alpharetta, Ga.--One of the top class of 2015 offensive linemen in Georgia, Milton High standout Nick Wilson already has offers from Auburn, Florida, Miami, North Carolina, Tennessee and Wake Forest. On Saturday he took a trip over to the Plains to check out Gus Malzahn's Tigers.

Catching up with former Milton teammates Carl Lawson and Peyton Barber in addition to walk-on linebacker Grant Smith, the 6-2, 275 Wilson spent the afternoon in Auburn and said things could not have gone any better.

"I thought it was awesome," Wilson said. "I definitely loved seeing the coaches and how they coach. The facilities were all amazing. I loved just seeing the coaches. It was awesome.

"It was really cool," he added. "I just loved the high-tech facilities. All of my friends that came from Milton think very highly of Auburn. I think the same thing honestly. I love it."

A standout on an offensive line that featured three Division I signees last season, Wilson helped to lead the way for Barber on offense while going up against Lawson every day in practice. He said being very close to both of them is something that definitely plays in Auburn's favor.

"They are just some of my best friends," Wilson said. "I think if I ever went to Auburn I would have them as good friends there."

A powerful blocker who could play guard or center on the next level, Wilson said one of the things he loved about his trip to Auburn was having the opportunity to see offensive line coach J.B. Grimes in action. He said he's looking forward to seeing how the offensive line develops while watching in person from Jordan-Hare Stadium.

"He coaches a lot of the same things that my high school coaches and he's really good at it too," Wilson said. "It would be an easy transition if I went to Auburn, it's just that he teaches more advanced things.

"I'm definitely going to come to an Auburn game," he added. "Probably one of the first three since they are night games. I don't have any other plans right now other than I know I want to see an Auburn game."
