Athletic Receiver Stands Out at Auburn Camp

Coming off an impressive junior season, Trayquon Dubose is looking to attract the attention of college coaches.

Darlington, S.C.--One of the quickest prospects at Auburn's recent football camps is coming off a big junior season as he hits the summer circuit for prospects.

Trayquon Dubose, a class of 2015 wide receiver from Darlington High School, caught 38 passes for 778 yards as a junior. He scored eight offensive touchdowns and one on defense on a pick-six play while playing cornerback.

"I thought the camp was pretty good and I enjoyed it a lot," said Dubose, who attended a one-day prospect camp on the Auburn campus where he stood out with his quickness and good hands.

He noted that Auburn wide receivers coach Dameyune Craig gave him good tips for beating man coverage and another AU coach, Bobby Bentley, added encouragement. "They taught me how to get off of press (coverage)," Dubose said. "Coach Bentley told me I had a bright future.

"I did good at a few things at the camp and have got to work on a few things," said Dubose, who ran a 4.49 40 after measuring in at 5-9, 170 pounds.

The prospect used his speed in track and field as a junior when he won the 100-meter hurdles, the 400-meter hurdles and the pole vault competition at his region meet while also running on the winning 4x100 relay to take the Male Athlete of the Region Award.

Wilbert Lampkin, who is the head football coach at Darlington High, noted he has a high opinion of the class of 2015 prospect. "He is a joy to have on the team and he takes a lot of pressure off the quarterback," the coach said.

"He has a great work ethic," Lampkin added. "When we don't have practice he goes out and works on his own and gets the quarterback out there to run routes for an hour to an hour and 15 minutes. He works hard in the weight room. He did the 185 (pounds) rep test 15 times. It is no surprise he is the receiver he is."

Still waiting on his first major college scholarship offer, Dubose said he is hearing from a variety of colleges that are recruiting him and wanting him to attend their camps. "I don't know my schedule, but I am planning to go to other camps," he said.
