2015 QB Commit Has "Unbelievable" Trip To AU

Auburn 2015 QB commitment Tyler Queen discusses his visit to the Plains last weekend for the Washington State game.

Kennesaw, Ga.--A commitment to the Auburn Tigers over the summer, talented class of 2015 quarterback prospect Tyler Queen got his first chance to experience Jordan-Hare Stadium as part of the family last Saturday night. Watching as the Tigers took down Washington State, Queen said it was everything he thought it would be and more.

"It was unbelievable to see all of the fans going crazy every time something big happened," Queen told Inside The Auburn Tigers. "It was just great hospitality by the coaching staff and everyone there. Tiger Walk was amazing seeing all those fans flooding the streets just to see them walk to the stadium. The atmosphere at Auburn is better than anywhere else I have seen."

Getting his first opportunity to see Gus Malzahn's offense in action and see how it performed, Queen said he really liked the way the offense ran and how many different players touched the ball.

"They get the ball to their playmakers in different ways," Queen said. "I didn't see any tendencies. They ran a lot of different plays from different formations and were moving players around. They had personnel groups changing just about every play. I really liked the way they set that up. Their game plan worked because it got them the win."

Another part of the game that impressed Queen was the play of Auburn's much-maligned defense. Allowing just three points in the second half and forcing three turnovers, he said Ellis Johnson's unit did its job and he liked how they got after it.

"For the most part they played lights out," Queen said of the defense. "I think they got three or four interceptions to get the ball back to the offense and put them in good situations. That is what you have got to have to win football games and they did a good job of that."

While he spent much of his time watching the Tigers play on the field, Queen also spent plenty of time getting to know some of his future teammates such as Tre Williams, DeShaun Davis, Chris Laye, Racean Thomas, Kamryn Pettway and others. Building a bond with them off the field, he said he has also started that process with many 2015 prospects and he hopes it pays off down the road.

"It was great," Queen said. "I have talked to some of the commits and some recruits. It was good to finally meet them face-to-face. It was good to meet guys like Tyler Carr and Kerryon Johnson from Madison Academy. It was good to meet them and start building a relationship. We became pretty good friends so it will be interesting to see how that carries over into the recruiting process."
