4-Star Safety "Loves" First Look At Auburn

West Virginia commitment Kendrell McFadden discusses his trip to Auburn and what he saw from the Tigers.

Miramar, Fla.--A West Virginia commitment and one of the top safety prospects in the country, athletic Kendrell McFadden was on the Auburn campus over the weekend to see the Tigers in the A-Day game and also check out the campus and coaching staff. With an extended look at the reigning SEC Champions under his belt, Auburn definitely make a big impact on the 6-3, 190-pounder.

"I love Auburn," McFadden said. "I love the fans. I love the atmosphere. I love everything. I just love how all the coaches have good communication with all their players. I just love everything about Auburn right now."

One of the biggest things that stood out to McFadden on his visit was seeing more than 70,000 people at Jordan-Hare Stadium on a cool and wet day. With the second-largest A-Day crowd in history on hand along with top prospects from around the country, he said that the experience blew him away.

"It was shocking," McFadden said. "It just let me know how their fans and everybody supports this one little area. Everybody supports each other and I can only imagine when they play against Alabama. I know that's crazy."

Spending time talking with coaches Gus Malzahn, Charlie Harbison and Melvin Smith, McFadden said he really enjoyed his time with Coach Cheese and getting to know him even better. With Auburn looking for bigger defensive backs to fit in Ellis Johnson's defense, he is the perfect fit at the safety spot for the Tigers.

Saying that he plans to definitely visiting Auburn and West Virginia officially, McFadden said at the moment he's got three schools that stand out with the Mountaineers still holding off the Tigers at the moment.

"It's just like from the beginning Auburn is still number two," McFadden said. "You've got West Virginia number one, Auburn is number two, and Ohio State is number three."
