Stafford, Va.--A class of 2018 offensive line prospect whose stock is heating like the June weather visited the Auburn Tigers, one of 20 college football programs who have offered Nana Asiedu a scholarship.
Previously a tight end, Asiedu is up to six-foot-six, 260 pounds and has moved to left tackle where he caught the attention of Auburn’s offensive line coach, Herb Hand.
Hand invited Asiedu to visit the campus for Big Cat Weekend and the prospect said he is glad he did.
“I loved my visit to Auburn and I am building a good relationship with the coaching staff,” said Asiedu, who will be a junior this fall at North Stafford High School.
“Coach Hand is a very sincere person,” Asiedu added. “He is energetic and I love his personality.”
Nana Asiedu has offers from numerous SEC and Big 10 programs.
Asiedu, whose family is from Ghana, has spent most of his life in the U.S. where he picked up football and basketball, but notes football is his main focus. Considering how many college coaches haven taken notice that was probably a wise choice.
Pointing out he is still early in the recruiting process and doesn’t have a favorite, he said, “I am looking for great academics and a successful football program.”
Commenting on his first trip to Auburn, he said, “Big Cat Weekend was awesome. I love how everybody interacted and the things they did. It was great. I plan to come back for a visit in the fall.”
