Getting the chance to see the coaches, talk to players, and get another feel for the campus with his mother and father along for the ride, Lamar noted the experience was a great one.
“It was fun,” he said. “It was just a laid-back feel and there was a lot of energy seeing how the coaches’ personalities are. I got a good feel for the people there and the coaches and some of the players that might be going there with me.
“It gave me a whole new perspective on what I wanted to see,” he added. “It was a great visit for me.”
One of the highlights of the trip for Lamar was getting the chance to spend time with Auburn redshirt sophomore Carl Lawson. Already very familiar with Lawson before his trip, Lamar said the two had a great time seeing a different part of life in Auburn.
“It was great to talk to Carl,” Lamar said. “I actually knew him beforehand because he went to Milton and I went to Roswell right across the street. It was awesome to talk to him. He showed me a lot of things I didn’t know about. I got a tour I wouldn’t get otherwise so it was fun.”
Spending a lot of time talking with Will Muschamp to get an idea of how he would be used in the Auburn defense, Lamar said after seeing how the Tigers will be playing in the future he feels like it’s something that would work for him.
“I think I fit in well,” Lamar said. "In terms of what they run defense-wise, Coach Muschamp sees me as a mike or will. He sees me fitting in well with the defense so I feel like in terms of that I fit well.”
Planning to see all his favorite schools this summer, Lamar said two of his next visits will be to Clemson and Alabama. With another chance to see Auburn now in the books, he said there’s no question the Tigers will be in his plans.
“It was huge,” Lamar said. “I definitely want to go to a school where I feel like I can mesh with the players I’m with and just a good school overall. I definitely got that feel from Auburn. It was just great.”
