Victor Opens Up About Auburn Visit

4-star wide Binjimen Victor talks about his visit to Auburn and where the Tigers stand for him.

Coconut Creek, Fla.--One of the top wide receiver prospects in the country, Binjimen Victor was on the Auburn campus this week along with teammate Trayvon Mullen to check out the Tigers.

Catching up with Auburn offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee as well as secondary coach Travaris Robinson while on campus for the first time since last summer, Victor said the trip was a good one.

“Being back at Auburn was pretty good,” Victor said. “Last year when we came to camp we didn’t get to see everything and talk to every coach. This time we got to see the facilities and got to see where the players stay. It felt like home there.

“I saw everything basically,” he added of the trip. “I talked to the coaching staff and my position coach (Dameyune Craig) and Coach Lashlee. It was a great feeling. I really feel comfortable with them. I hope they recruit me harder and we’ll see how everything plays out.”

Even though he doesn’t coach the wide receivers for the Tigers, Robinson could end up having a big impact on Victor’s decision should he choose the Tigers. With a strong presence in the Miami area, Robinson has had a long relationship with Victor and he said that’s important for him.

“It’s pretty good because he knows me and I know him,” Victor said. “He’s recruiting me as well with Coach Lashlee. That’s pretty good to have a coach like him recruiting me.”

An offense built on running the football under Gus Malzahn since his return to Auburn, the Tigers are expected to open things up in 2015 with Jeremy Johnson taking over the starting quarterback role. With guys like Duke Williams and Ricardo Louis outside to throw to, Auburn’s passing game should take a huge step forward this season and that’s something Victor said he’s ready to see.

“It definitely opens my eyes,” he said of Auburn’s passing game. “Watching them last year they used their receivers pretty good, especially guys that are my size. They used their height as an advantage. I’m definitely going to be watching them more this year because it’s going to be my turn to make a commitment. I’ll have to watch them.”

Still trying to figure out his official visit schedule, Victor said at the moment it’s looking good for Auburn to be one of his five trips before making a decision.
