McBryde Enjoys Getting To Know Muschamp

Auburn commitment Richard McBryde talks about getting to know new defensive coordinator Will Muschamp and his trip to see the Tigers.

Troy, Ala.--For longtime Auburn commitment Richard McBryde, this weekend was a long time coming. Unable to take his trip to the Plains last weekend because of a death in the family, the athletic linebacker was looking forward to his chance to sit down with new defensive coordinator Will Muschamp and get a feel for what the coach is all about.

McBryde had that opportunity without very much interruption because of a smaller group of official visitors for the Tigers. That gave him the one-on-one time he was looking for and allowed him to hear what he wanted to hear from Muschamp.

“It was great meeting Muschamp,” McBryde said. “It was my first time meeting him. He said he’s coming to see me next week. We went over the defensive schemes and stuff and where I would probably play in the future.

“When first walked in we just started talking about defense,” he added. “He sat me down and went on the board and stuff like that and showed me where I would play if I come there. I like to react and play the game, and he said he would try to help me understand it better when I’m in the game.”

McBryde also had the chance to meet with the guy that would be his future position coach at Auburn, former Alabama assistant Lance Thompson.

“It was my first time meeting him,” McBryde said. “He seems like a great guy. We really didn’t talk much, but the time we did talk he kind of seemed like a great guy. I feel comfortable playing for him.”

Saying that he’ll probably still visit Florida next weekend, McBryde added that he’s solidly committed to Auburn following his trip.

“I’m really committed to Auburn,” McBryde said. “I’m probably going to stick with it. I have been committed to them for a long time and it’s a great feeling being there.”
