A dependable receiver with a good frame, he had the chance to show his skills to the Auburn coaches last weekend.
Despite not getting an offer from the Tigers, Weaver was one of the top receivers in the camp and definitely made an impact on Coach Gus Malzahn, Dameyune Craig and company. Getting the chance to work closely with the Auburn coaching staff, Weaver said it was all part of building relationships and noted that he is still early in the recruiting process.
"Camp was good," Weaver said. "I learned a lot from the receivers coach, Coach (Dameyune) Craig. It was just great having so much competition. Learning from him was good because it meant getting closer to the coach. Coaches always say you need to be your position coach's best friend and it was just about getting closer and learning how he wants his receivers to be."
Measuring in at 6-2, 179 pounds, Weaver doesn't have the blazing speed of many of the top recruits. That's one of the things that should improve the stronger and more mature he gets and something he plans to work on between now and the 2014 season. It was his technique that caught the eyes of the Auburn staff, however.
"He (Malzahn) told me that I've got the body of an NFL receiver and that I can be a great receiver," Weaver said. "He said my only problem is that I drop my head coming out of my breaks and that's why a lot of DBs break on me. Overall, I had a great day catching the ball and getting some separation."
Already with an offer from Southern Miss, Weaver said he's hearing from Clemson, Duke, Florida State, Louisville in addition to Auburn. He said the Tigers are a school he really likes at the moment and an offer from them would mean the world to him because of the things he's heard from former Central player and current Tiger Jonathan Wallace.
"It's just that Auburn runs an offense just like my high school," Weaver said. "I feel like I could develop faster there than any other school.
"He's just a leader," he added of Wallace. "He said if you come to Auburn you're going to have to work your tail off and stay in the weight room, but education comes first."
