“Being able to come back up and actually see a practice was great,” Threat said. “It was phenomenal to see the boys work. I got to sit down in meetings to see how they go and it was phenomenal. I like the way the coaches respond to it and how the players communicate with the coaches and ask questions.
“Watching a practice I got to learn a lot about how it goes. It wasn’t a four-hour long practice that just drags on forever, it was two-hours and get everything done 100 percent, two hours and you’re out. It was a great experience to see all that.”
Saying that the Auburn coaching staff stands out to him when he thinks about the Tigers, Threat said he feels at home on the Plains and that’s a big part of the reason why he has them very high on his list. Another reason is having Muschamp on campus as the defensive coordinator.
“Coach Muschamp, what stood out was his enthusiasm and energy throughout the whole practice and his focus and determination to coach the players,” Threat said. “That was all there. Every little mistake they made it was a quick fix right there. There was no hesitation from the coaches and his players responded, really fast too.”
In addition to watching seniors Cassanova McKinzy and Kris Frost in action for the defense, Threat said it was good to see his good friends Tre Williams and DeShaun Davis get plenty of work in the practice as well. While there’s still plenty of work to be done for the Tigers to build the depth necessary to take the defense to the next level, Threat said he saw plenty of good things from down the line.
“I got to see how the two’s and three’s work,’ Threat said. “They work just as hard or sometimes harder than the one’s. Just to watch their effort and the energy they put into it, that meant a lot.”
With baseball on his plate and spring football just ahead Threat said he’s not sure of his visits in the coming weeks, but with a few teams out in front at the moment there’s sure to be an SEC West theme for the linebacker as he begins the process of making a decision before graduating in December.
