“It was good,” Pass said. “I saw a lot of things that I wanted to see and needed to see. It only made Auburn a better contender.”
Pass especially spent a lot of time watching Johnson play and even though he didn’t play any in the second half the junior still managed to throw for 252 yards and two touchdowns. Seeing that was something Pass said spoke volumes to him.
“I just could visualize myself there,” Pass said. “Our game is a lot alike so I saw a lot of good things out of him.”
With Auburn already one of his favorites before the trip Pass got a nudge from the Tigers to pull the trigger while in town. After several other quarterbacks have made commitments it has put the pressure on the other guys to make their decisions, something Pass said he feels, but he won’t let it influence his timeline.
“He (Rhett Lashlee) was just telling me that I’m the guy and whenever I’m ready I can just let them know,” Pass said. “It means a lot to me and says a lot about how much they really want me. It is what it is.
“It kind of does,” he added of the other QB’s coming off the board. “But at the end of the day I’ve just got to worry about myself and see how it all plays out. If it’s meant to be it will happen. That’s how I look at it.”
While he admits he’s getting closer to a decision, Pass said he’s not ready just yet, but after his return trip to Auburn the Tigers are definitely one of the schools in the hunt.
“They’ll definitely be in my top two with probably Louisville,” Pass said. “Right now I would say they are neck and neck. I’m going to do it before my senior year.”
