Warrior Talks Nike Camp, Auburn Trip

Nigel Warrior was one of the standouts at the Nike football camp for the Atlanta area. He talks recruiting, Auburn his plans and more in this report.

A talented defensive back and the son of former Tennessee and NFL star Dale Carter, Nigel Warrior has more famous family ties as well as the nephew of wide receiver Jake Reed.

At the Nike camp in Buford, Ga., he showed those bloodlines run more than skin deep as he was one of 11 prospects at the event to earn an invitation to The Opening in Oregon after a strong performance at the Nike Atlanta Regional.

With the ability to play cornerback on the next level, but physical enough to be a very good safety, the four-star defensive back has scholarship offers from all over the country as he prepares for what promises to be a busy spring and summer. Having already visited Auburn earlier in March and preparing to be back on campus for the A-Day game on April 18, Warrior said the Tigers are definitely a school on his list at the moment after seeing everything in person.

“The visit, everybody was on point,” Warrior said. “There weren’t any mix-ups or anything like that. The practice was really intense and it was early in the morning too. They were hyped and I liked that.”

One of the biggest reasons why Warrior wanted to see Auburn in action was because of the additions of Will Muschamp and Travaris Robinson to the defensive staff. Energetic on the field and both teachers of the game, the duo showed Warrior more than just their football knowledge while on his visit.

“I like that they actually care,” Warrior said. “They reach out and get their point across. They are looking for DB’s and they’re not settling. T Rob is hyped and Coach Muschamp can be too, but he’s also laid back.”

Just enjoying the process right now, Warrior noted that he hs got a specific timeline he wants to follow as he gets ready to make his decision next February.

“I don’t have anyone that is standing out right now,” Warrior said. “Everybody is still pretty much level right now. At the beginning of my senior year I’ll have 10 schools. At the middle of the season I’ll have five schools. At the end of the year it will be three and I’ll sign on signing day.”
