AU Commitment Comes Back to Help Recruit

Four-star Auburn commitment Marquel Harrell talks about helping the Tigers recruit an all-star game teammate.

Fairburn, Ga.--Known as an aggressive guy on the football field, Marquel Harrell is taking the same approach when it comes to recruiting.

The four-star offensive guard from Creekside High School, who is rated as the No. 6 prospect at his position in the country, had already taken an official visit to Auburn where he was committed, but returned this weekend to spend more time on campus.

“I like the recruiting process and I came back to get to know some of the players better,” he told Inside the Auburn Tigers. “I also wanted to help my team recruit.”

Asked if he made progress on that front, he said, “Yes sir. I think we can get Carlton Davis. He is a really good athlete who is committed to Ohio State.

“I actually played with him in the Semper Fidelis (all-star) game,” Harrell said. “I had created a bond with him already and I wanted to show we are family at Auburn. It is not just a saying, we really mean it.”

Davis is a six-foot-two, 185-pound safety from Norland High in Miami.

Asked if he plans to participate in any spring sports at Creekside High prior to graduation, Harrell said, “I am going to run with the track team. I am just going to train with them. I am not going to compete in events.”

The high school All-American added that he is glad he made the return trip to Auburn. “I had a good time and I think the recruits did, too,” he said.
