Talented 2017 D-Lineman Enjoys Auburn Trip

Aubrey Solomon talks about his weekend trip to see the Auburn Tigers.

Leesburg, Ga.--A four-star defensive tackle and the No. 13 player at his position in the 2017 class, big Aubrey Solomon made his third trip to Auburn over the weekend to check out the Tigers and take part in Saturday’s picnic on the Plains.

Spending time with the coaching staff as well as mingling with other talented 2017 prospects such as linebackers Markail Benton and Will Ignont, Solomon said the visit went very well and he’s planning on being back again this fall.

“I loved it, I really did,” Solomon said. “They taught me a lot. It was calm, collected and they really treated me like family.

“I really saw how they put family first,” he added. “Then they do football. They’re not just football first and that stood out to me.”

One of the people that Solomon spent the most time with was Auburn defensive line coach Rodney Garner. Looking to stock up on defensive linemen in the next two classes, he told Solomon the Tigers have opportunities coming up and that’s music to his ears.

“He expressed the need for defensive linemen at the school,” Solomon said. “I really liked that. He said that if we pushed ourselves we could really play there as a true freshman. I really like that. That really stood out to me.”

Not planning on making a decision until at least this time next year, Solomon said right now he’s pretty open in the recruiting process but several teams are out in front as he prepares for his junior season including Auburn.

“For sure they are one of my leaders,” Solomon said of the Tigers. “I would also mention Alabama, Georgia and a little bit of FSU.”
