Talented Teammates Talk Auburn Visit

Carver-Montgomery teammates Marlon Davidson and Mack Wilson talk about visiting Auburn on Saturday.

Auburn, Ala.--A four-star defensive lineman in the 2016 class and the younger brother of former Auburn defensive lineman and current staff member Kenneth Carter, big Marlon Davidson made a return trip to the Plains this weekend to check out the Tigers along with teammate and five-star Lyndell Wilson.

Already very familiar with Auburn and the coaching staff after taking multiple trips to campus in the last year, Davidson said it was important for him to just be back and get another feel for the coaching staff.

“It was important for me to get back over because I haven’t been back to Auburn in a minute,” Davidson said. “I was in and out through everything, but when I came it just felt like home to me. It’s a home situation for me so it felt good to be around.”

Having his brother ss part of that staff is something that could be big for Davidson as he prepares to make his decision in the coming months. With Carter involved with the Tigers Davidson said that’s a big plus for them moving forward.

“It is big for me, but he always stays in my ear that it’s my decision and to make the right decision that fits me,” Davidson said. “He just stresses to keep one thing first, keep God first and family second. It’s just important for me that he’s there because he’s always going to tell me the right things because he’s been there and done it.”

As for Wilson it’s just another chance to see Auburn in person. With Alabama strongly in contention from him and offers from all over the country, he said it was nice to be back on campus and get a feel for everything once again.

“The visit went well,” Wilson said. “I just basically sat down with the coaches and went over everything. What stood out to me was when they went over the academic part of things. Jeremy (Johnson) always tells me about it because he’s very successful with it.

“What else that stood out was that Coach Muschamp told me about the players coming back,” he added. “He said I would have a fair chance to come in and play.”

Still wide open as well, Wilson said he has no plans to make an early decision and will wait until signing day.
