Big-Time 2016 WR Has "Great" Trip To Auburn

Big Stephen Sullivan talks about his first look at the Auburn Tigers.

Donaldsonville, La.--Already a four-star prospect and the No. ranked 13 wide receiver in the country for the 2016 class, according to Scout.com, 6-6 Stephen Sullivan committed to LSU back in February, but the recruiting attention hasn’t slowed at all.

Getting an offer from Dameyune Craig and the Auburn Tigers in October, Sullivan wanted to see what the program was all about and got that opportunity on Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

In town as the Tigers took down Samford in the final home game of the 2014 season, Sullivan said the experience was a good one for him and he likes what he sees from Auburn at the moment.

“It was great,” Sullivan said. “The fans are great. The campus is great. I think it’s a great feeling to be there and I just had a great time.”

Since getting the offer from Craig just over a month ago Sullivan has had the opportunity to get to know more about the Auburn staff. Finally getting a chance to meet them and see them in person on Saturday, he said they are a group he really likes being around.

“Me and Coach Craig are building a good relationship,” Sullivan said. “Everything is going good.”

With receivers Duke Williams and Ricardo Louis both out of Saturday’s game the Tigers didn’t click as well in the passing game as they had at other times this season. Seeing the productivity in that area for Auburn’s offense has been a big plus for the Tigers so far this season with Sullivan and with a veteran group for Craig, the opportunity for early playing time is there as well down the road.

“They are talking about me coming in as a freshman and having the chance to start and show out,” Sullivan said.

With the offers continuing to roll in and showing no signs of slowing, Sullivan said when the time comes to make a final decision he’ll be looking for a college that throws the football and gets it to the wide receivers. Until that time comes, however, he is concetrating on improving his skills and helping his team win games.

“You just have to focus on high school right now,” Sullivan said. “When you get to the next level just focus on that then. It’s crazy though. I can’t believe it. I really can’t believe it.”
