Spending a lot of time with Coach Travaris Robinson, who both were already very familiar with before the trip, both Bush and Gil said they liked their first opportunity to see what Auburn is all about.
“It was just the chemistry inside and the locker rooms and the wellness center, the coaches offices and how they interact with their players,” Bush said of what he liked about the Tigers. “They just act like one of us. We (Bush and Gil) just talked about the potential opportunity we have at Auburn. It’s a great place and I can’t wait to come back again.
“It was amazing,” Gil added. “I loved the stadium and the coaches. It’s like a family over there.”
Devin Bush and Devin Gill
The son of former Florida State standout Devin Bush, Bush Jr. is a talented linebacker prospect that has offers from schools all over the country already. At 6-0, 215, he packs a punch and can make plays from sideline to sideline. That’s something that has defensive coaches intrigued with his game and it’s a style of play he believes would be a good fit in Will Muschamp’s defense.
“We were just watching film and they were showing me how productive I could be in his defense,” Bush said. “Every down I’m doing something different. I haven’t done that before, and just to do that and learn his defense from a great defensive guy, I feel like I could flourish as a player at Auburn.”
“They’re at the top,” Bush said. “I feel like I could come back whenever I feel like it and have a great time. It doesn’t have to be a junior day or anything, I could come back when everybody is in the office and when all the players are there I could hang out like I’m one of them.”
As for Gill the trip was another opportunity to see a different program and make sure of his decision to stay at home and play for the Hurricanes. A physical safety prospect, Gill said he likes Robinson and the Tigers a lot after seeing them in person.
“He told us all about the players,” Gill said. “He showed us the locker rooms and equipment, everything there is just nice.”
Still committed to Miami following his trip, Gill said he’s very much open to other schools and if he were to get an offer from Auburn it could change things for him in a big way.
“They said they’re coming down to see me in the spring and they are watching my film now,” Gill said. “An offer would be a great chance for them. It’s actually really good up there.”
