Tigers Offer McKitty Following Auburn Camp

Football prospect Tre McKitty was a standout on the camp circuit at Auburn. He talks about his visit to AU, his offer from the Tigers and recruiting in general.

Tampa, Fla.--Tre McKitty was a standout at two separate Auburn football camps on Sunday and impressed the coaches enough to pick up a scholarship offer from the Tigers.

The 6-4, 223-pounder, who will be a junior this season at Tampa Catholic High School, worked out as a defensive end at one camp and as a tight end during the second one.

“I just got offered by Auburn and that is my 11th one,” he told Inside the Auburn Tigers.

“It was a great camp and we had a lot of competition,” McKitty said. “The best part of it for me was going through the one-on-ones and doing pretty well. I know there are some things I can work on, but I came to compete and I had fun doing it.”

McKitty was excellent in the pass rush drills at end and caught the ball well as a tight end.

Asked what position he would prefer to play in college, McKitty said, “I am not too sure. I am very versatile and can play wherever the coaches want me. Wherever they put me I will get to work.”

Florida, Miami, Kentucky, Tennessee, USF, Wake Forest, Cincinnati, Middle Tennessee State, FIU and Duke are his other scholarship offers.

Asked if he has a leader, he said, “No sir, I am still looking around seeing my options.”

An honor student, McKitty knows what he is looking for in a college. “I am looking at the school and what I can major in,” he says. “I looking at how they use my position as well as my relationship with the coaches.”

Interested in majoring in either aviation or law enforcement, the class of 2017 prospect broke into the starting lineup last season as a sophomore and is a prospect whose stock is on the rise.
