Talented 2015 WR Talks Auburn Offer

Creekside (Ga.) wide receiver prospect Jayson Stanley discusses getting an offer from the Auburn Tigers on Monday.

Fairburn, Ga.--Already committed to Ole Miss, 2015 offensive lineman Marquel Harrell made a trip to Auburn on Monday along with teammates Venzell Boulware, Jayson Stanley and several others. Checking out the facilities and the coaching staff along with Creekside assistant and former Auburn Tiger Travis Williams, Harrell said he enjoyed getting his first look at Auburn.

However it was Stanley that got the big news of the day, earning an offer from the Tigers following a strong junior season for Creekside that finished with a state title. A 6-2, 198 pound wide receiver with 4.4 speed in the 40-yard dash, Stanley said getting the offer from the Tigers was huge news for him.

"It was real fun and a real good experience," Stanley said. "It was actually my third time going up there. I went to the Iron Bowl so I really didn't get to see the student (activity) facility. It was real nice. I like how they treat their student-athletes of course, but I really like the whole Auburn family.

"A lot of people tell me now that this offer has come in a whole bunch will start flooding in," he adds. "I still want to keep my options open to everyone else, but this one is real, real heavy on my mind."

A talented prospect that reports a time of 4.36 seconds from an Adidas Camp on Sunday in Georgia, Stanley said he really enjoyed getting a closer look at Auburn and already feels a bond with several of the Tigers including former teammate Josh Holsey.

"It definitely helps because I was real cool with Josh when I was in the ninth grade," Stanley said. "I kind of looked up to him and things like that. Definitely him going there really helps."

With a veteran group of receivers on campus already and the chance to jump into the rotation following guys like Sammie Coates, Ricardo Louis, Jaylon Denson and Quan Bray, Stanley said he likes what he hears from offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee about his future in the offense.

"We were going over all of the receivers currently there and that were going to be there the next two years," Stanley said. "We were also looking at the quarterbacks. So when I go there they definitely told me they would be looking for me to come and play. That was really big as well."

Currently with offers from UNC-Charlotte and Marshall in addition to the Tigers, Stanley said he's also hearing from Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Clemson, Georgia Tech and North Carolina State. Adding that he hopes to hear from childhood favorite Oregon as well as Florida State, he said there's no doubt getting an offer from Auburn was a big one for him.

"Before they were definitely in my top schools," Stanley said. "They are really in my top schools now. They just made a huge impact. I'm still not really leaning towards an early commitment to a school, but they really made a deep impact."
