“It was a lot of fun,” Kim said. “I got to hang out with some players, get to talk to them, get to know a little more about the place. They filled me in on a lot. I’m just ready to be there. Getting to know them is good as well because I’ll be their teammate all four years. It was good hanging out with them.”
While Alex Kozan was one of his hosts for the weekend and a guy that Kim could be playing beside down the road, he also got to spend time with departing senior center Reese Dismukes. It’s not often a prospect gets to interact with the Rimington Trophy winner and get advice from him and that’s something Kim said was great about the visit.
“It’s inspirational,” Kim said. “He set the bar, that’s something that I would like to do in the future, hopefully be somewhere near who he is. It was a good deal.”
Sitting down and talking with Gus Malzahn, J.B. Grimes, Charlie Harbison and the rest of the staff while on his trip, Kim said that was great just to continue to build a relationship with them. While new defensive coordinator Will Muschamp wasn’t around to have a conversation just yet, Kim said even though he’ll be on the other side of the ball it doesn’t diminish the impact of the hire in his eyes.
“Well, Coach Muschamp will definitely be a great addition to the team,” Kim said. “Hopefully in the future we can make a run at the title.”
With his Auburn official visit done Kim said it’s not the last time he’ll be on the Plains before signing day. Planning to be back in January to be part of other visit weekends as well as continue to talk to other prospects about Auburn, the four-star lineman said for him there is no need to visit anywhere else because he knows where his home is.
“No, I’m not going to, I don’t really see the need,” he said of other visits. “All of my visits will be here because I need to keep my head straight, keep focused on what is really important and that’s getting ready for Auburn and the future goals that I have.”
