Madison, Ga.--A lot of the football prospects who participated in Auburn's Big Cat Weekend said they enjoyed the experience. One of the visitors, defensive tackle M.J. Webb, made it clear that he really enjoyed it.
“It was great, great, I really had fun with Coach Garner and the other recruits,” the class of 2017 defensive tackle said.
“Talking to Coach Garner (Auburn defensive line coach Rodney Garner), he is a country guy just like I am. We talked about everything from fishing to deer meat. It wasn’t even about football and I really enjoyed it.”
A six-foot-three, 275-pound defensive tackle, Webb said that Auburn has moved into the lead ahead of South Carolina, his number two, and two other colleges, Tennessee and Georgia Tech.
I had a great day and I know I am going to get back over to Auburn soon,” he said.
A prospect hoping to graduate in December from Madison County High School and enroll early in college, Webb was asked what is going to be the key factor in making his choice. “How do I feel if I wasn’t playing football,” he said.
“I see myself coming to Auburn even if I wasn’t playing football,” ?he pointed out. “I love the campus and everything. It is country-like, small like my hometown and that is going to play a big factor into it.
“It was the first time my grandmother has come on a visit with me and she really enjoyed it,” Webb said. “I know she is going to have a lot to say about Auburn. I?am going to take her to South Carolina and any other places I decide to go to see how see likes it.”
Asked what he would like to study in college, the defensive tackle said, “I am thinking about majoring in agricultural business, but I and not sure yet. I really haven’t made up my mind.”
