4-Star Defender Already Recruiting For Tigers

Jordan Colbert talks about recruiting for Auburn while on his A-Day visit.

Griffin, Ga.--Even Jordan Colbert admits there's not much left for him to do at Auburn except to make a commitment to the Tigers. Making close to half a dozen trips to the Plains in the last few months, the four-star defender was once again at Auburn on Saturday to see the Tigers in the annual A-Day game at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Joined on the trip by teammate and Georgia commitment Christian Owens, Colbert said the day was a great opportunity for him to begin recruiting players for the Tigers even though he's not yet on board himself.

"To be honest it was more of a recruiting day for me," Colbert said. "I was trying to get other players on board. I'm not all the way 100 percent, but the odds of it are looking real good right now. I'm just trying to recruit fellow players that I play with and friends. Right now it's looking good for everybody, not just from my perspective."

A talented defender capable of playing several different positions on Auburn's defense, Colbert is a player the Tigers have targeted since early in the process. Already very familiar with how he would be used by Auburn on that side of the ball and also with the coaching staff and players, he said all that is left now is for the right time.

"For me to be 100 percent right now is not too much," Colbert said. "They've already shown me everything that I basically wanted to see and wanted to hear. Right now it's just based on when I want to pull the trigger. In my head I have a good idea of what is really going to happen. It's the right timing."

Saying that he's working on several Georgia prospects including Nick Dawson, Roquan Smith and Rashad Roundtree, Colbert said his main focus will continue to be on Owens. A big-time prospect in his own right, Colbert noted that it's all about getting more feel for Auburn and he wants to make sure his buddy has plenty opportunities for that.

"Right now he's committed to Georgia, but I have been giving him the positive sides of Auburn," Colbert said. "Since he committed to Georgia he's already said they haven't been recruiting him as hard. When you come to Auburn they are going to show you love every time you step on campus. I'm sure Georgia is showing him love, but there is no place like Auburn."
