Recruiting "Good" For Local Defensive End

Zo Bridges talks about his recent camp trip to Auburn and recruiting.

Opelika, Ala.--One of the players who stood out at Auburn’s final June football camp that featured players from around the Southeast didn’t have to make a long journey to visit the AU campus.

Zo Bridges, who will be a senior this season at Opelika High School, showed his quickness and overall athletic ability at the camp and caught the eye of Auburn’s new defensive coordinator, Will Muschamp.

“Coach Muschamp told me he wants to have me back and interact with me more and go over some stuff,” said Bridges, a productive but undersized defensive end at 6-2, 210 pounds.

“He has got a plan for me,” Bridges added. “He just wants to sit down and talk to me about it.”

Commenting on his most recent visit to Auburn, Bridges said, “The camp was a great experience for me learning from the coaches with the fundamental things they taught me. After that I used them in the one-on-one period.”

Bridges, who is known as an outstanding pass rusher, has scholarship offers from Kentucky, Indiana, Minnesota, Cincinnati, Memphis, Middle Tennessee State and several other colleges.

“Recruiting is going good,” he said. “I have been to a couple of places this summer. I have been to Georgia and Auburn recently and I got invited back to Auburn and Georgia. Hopefully, everything will turn out right when I come back the next time.”

The OHS senior is also hoping for a memorable season for his Bulldogs. “Our team is going to be great this year,” he predicted. “We have 11 seniors returning to the defensive side of the ball. We shouldn’t let anything get past us.”
