QB Enjoys Return Visit to the Auburn Campus

Tyler Queen talks about his most recent visit to check out the Auburn football program.

Kennesaw, Ga.--Tyler Queen committed to Auburn before the start of his junior season at North Cobb High School and says that commitment to Coach Gus Malzahn's program is stronger than ever.

Last weekend he returned to the Auburn campus to spend time with the coaching staff and talk with current players as well as recruits.

"It went very well," the 6-2, 210-pound quarterback said. "I talked to a bunch of the guys and built closer bonds. I talked to the coaches, went to the basketball game and played a little X-Box tournament. It went good.

"Mostly for me it was a help with recruiting trip," he said. "I helped the coaches talk about Auburn and get them on the same page I am on and try to get them to commit. I got a lot of good feedback from the prospects who were there so I thought it went really well."

Queen made the return trip to the AU campus with his father, who is also his head coach in football. The prospect noted the more time he spends around the Auburn coaches the more impressed he is because he likes them personally and is excited about the group's commitment to excellence

"It is something I want to be a part of," he said. "I have had a great time building relationships with the coaches."

The quarterback said that he is planning to play baseball this spring for his high school team. "I didn't play last year, but this year I am go to pitch and play third base," he pointed out.

However, the four star's future as an athlete is in football and at the quarterback position in particular. The Tigers have a commitment from Sean White for their 2014 class and could be signing another quarterback in the 2015 class. Queen said that doesn't bother him and added, "Anywhere you go you are going to have competition."
