Judson Shines At Auburn Football Camp

Class of 2017 football prospect discusses his camp experience and Auburn as well as recruiting.

Cocoa, Fla.--Dynamic play-maker Bruce Judson was a standout performer at an Auburn football camp on Sunday, which the class of 2017 Ohio State verbal commitment said was a positive experience.

Rated a four-star recruit as Scout.com’s No. 4 athlete in his class, the rising junior is coming off a monster sophomore season at Cocoa High where he passed for 2,051 yards with 33 touchdowns and just five interceptions.

He was also a dynamic runner from the quarterback position, totaling 982 yards for the season at 7.5 yards per carry while rushing for 10 scores.

“The camp was good,” said the recruit who picked up a scholarship offer from the Tigers. “I really like the coaches at Auburn and the facilities they have.”

Judson pointed out it was good to compete in drills against “some faces I hadn’t seen before” at the one-day event on the AU campus.

Many colleges have been recruiting Judson as a slot receiver and punt returner. He notes that Auburn defensive coordinator Will Muschamp and secondary coach Travaris Robinson are recruiting him as a defensive back.

Asked what his favorite position is, Judson said, “Really, it’s quarterback because when you are out there you run the show. It means a lot to me to be able to lead the team.”

Commenting on what he is working on this summer, the prospect said, “For my high school I am playing quarterback so I really focusing on taking my team to win the state championship the next two years. I think we are going to have a good team and I am really looking forward to that.”

Not a large prospect at somewhere around five feet, nine inches tall, he has plenty of scholarship offers after putting up big numbers last season.

Asked what he believes college coaches like best about him, Judson said, “Really, I think it is me being humble. I take things one step at a time, I try to stay humble and try not to step out of character. I just let my game do the talking.”

Without a doubt college coaches like his elusiveness and speed. “Today I ran a 4.5 (40-yard dash) and that is the first time I have been timed in about a year,” Judson said. “My fastest is a 4.41.”

The prospect noted he expects to be faster for the start of his season. “I have put on a couple pounds,” he said. “Today I weighed 193 and in the next couple of weeks I will probably get down to 185.”

Committing to the Buckeyes back in January of this year in the wake of that team’s victory in the national championship game victory, Judson is still considering other colleges, but makes it clear the Buckeyes are going to be tough to beat.

“Committing to Ohio State is big,” he said. “That is like my second home right now. I like it up there. Not only do I like it, I love it being surrounded by great coaches and great fans.”

Asked if other teams recruiting him are wasting their time, he noted that is not the case. “Whenever you offer somebody a scholarship you aren’t wasting your time,” he said, noting that will continue to weigh his options before signing as a member of the 2017 class.
