Tigers Make Impression On 4-Star Safety

Four-star safety Dylan Singleton discusses his visit to check out the Auburn football Tigers over the weekend.

Lawrenceville, Ga.--A four-star safety prospect with offers from top programs around the country, Archer High standout Dylan Singleton visited one of those colleges on Saturday when he took a trip to see the Auburn Tigers. Visiting with Coach Gus Malzahn and assistants Will Muschamp, Lance Thompson and Travaris Robinson, Singleton said everything about his trip went well.

“They are all good coaches,” Singleton said. “They kept it real with us about the recruiting process. They didn’t try to persuade us to commit right away or anything. They just kept it real with us all the way around.

“This was my second time being there,” he added. “I got to see the wellness center and everything. I got to see more of the weight room and the facilities that I haven’t really seen. I had just been to a game before so I had only been to the stadium. I just got to see more of that stuff and how it was.”

A player capable of playing several different positions in the secondary on the next level, Singleton said Auburn sees him as a defensive back in the Tigers’ system and that’s something that sounds good to him.

“Coach T-Rob told me he could see me as a safety and as a nickel in that part of the defense,” Singleton said. “I like it a lot. I’ll play anywhere honestly. I think I can play anywhere. I’m comfortable playing safety because that’s where I play now. I don’t play corner anymore.”

With a very early top group consisting of schools like Georgia, Florida State and LSU, Singleton said his look on Saturday puts Auburn in the hunt for him as he prepares for spring practice and his senior season.

“They are high on my list right now,” Singleton said. “They are probably in my top five.”
