Physical Back Enjoys First Look At Auburn

2017 prospect Jamari Peacock discusses his camp experience at Auburn and his look at another position.

Yulee, Fla.--Already a four-star running back prospect for the 2017 class, big Jamari Peacock was on the Auburn campus recently as part of a junior camp with the Tigers. Working out as a running back while also seeing some time as a fullback/H-Back, Peacock said the trip was a very good one for his first look at Auburn.

“I liked coming out there,” Peacock said of Auburn. “It's quiet. I've got a couple of friends that go there, Jeff Holland and Javaris Davis. I stayed with Chandler Cox and he showed me a real good time.

“Just the overall beauty of the place,” he said when asked what stands out about Auburn. “It's really beautiful. There's a lot of things to do. It keeps you out of trouble. Not a lot of troubled things go on down there.”

Rated as the nation’s No. 19 running back in 2017 the 5-11, 230 Peacock is a player that has a lot of size and that means more possible uses in an offense like Auburn’s With former tailback Kamryn Pettway now lining up as more of a blocker for the Tigers, Peacock said that’s how he sees himself in the offense as well.

“They had me more at H-back,” he said of Friday’s camp. “I like running routes better at H-back than tailback. I feel more comfortable at H-back in their offense.”

Should Auburn extend an offer it would likely come at the position coached by Scott Fountain. He just also happens to be the coach that recruits Peacock’s school, something that has allowed the two to build a strong relationship already.

“He's the guy that heavily recruits me,” he said of Fountain. “We talk almost every day. I call him in the morning, ask how practice is going. We talk at night before we close things up. We've got a pretty tight relationship.”

Saying that an Auburn offer would definitely be a big one for him, Peacock currently holds offers from Florida State, Florida, Miami, Mississippi State, Stanford ,Oregon State, Georgia Southern and Central Michigan with the three in-state schools holding the early edge.
