Phenix City, Ala.--Getting ready to start his Auburn Tigers football experience in January, four-star cornerback commitment John Broussard was on campus last weekend for the Iron Bowl before beginning his busy December and January in which he plans to play in both the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Classic and the Under Armour All-American Game.
Scheduled to enroll at Auburn in early January, Broussard said for him his final look at Auburn gave him a great chance to get a final feel for the Tigers and what his future home is going to be like.
“It was real fun getting to hang out with the players and being able to chill with them and do stuff with them all day,” Broussard said. “That was fun. The atmosphere was just great.
“The game was real live. I felt the passion of the guys. I was with them before and after the game. I did Tiger Walk with them. They were passionate about it and fired up about it.”
Saying that he was impressed by how well the Auburn defense played for much of the game, Broussard said it just came down to a few plays on both sides of the ball, things that he notes just have to be corrected to make a big difference. Despite having to deal with several key injuries in their first season at Auburn coordinator Will Muschamp and secondary coach Travaris Robinson worked wonders with the back seven for the Tigers and Broussard said it’s just the start.
“I sat in Coach T-Rob’s office and he said they had to work all year just to get everything right,” Broussard said. “Just to see how they played towards the end of the season, that’s going to continue on into the spring and next year. It’s all going to be good.”
Now the goal for Broussard is to help get more quality players on board starting with his good friend and five-star linebacker Ben Davis. A visitor for several Auburn games this year, including Saturday’s Iron Bowl, Davis is definitely interested in the Tigers and Broussard said the two had a very good conversation about the future on the Plains.
“I talked to him a lot about it,” Broussard said of Davis. “I know he loved it. We were talking about everyone else that we’re going to get. We had a real good talk.”
