Linebacker Prospect Helping Auburn Recruit Other Football Players

Class of 2017 prospect Chandler Wooten spent the weekend in Auburn and talks about his trip to the Plains.

Kennesaw, Ga.-- Chandler Wooten says his most recent visit to Auburn was another good one and only re-confirmed his decision to play college football for the Tigers.

“I really enjoyed mingling with all of the players, the coaches and the commitments,“ he told Inside the Auburn Tigers about his weekend on the Plains.

“I hung out with Coach T-Will (linebackers coach Travis Williams), Coach Steele (defensive coordinator Kevin Steele), Coach Malzahn (head coach Gus Malzahn), K.J. (linebacker recruit K.J. Britt), Tadarian Moultry and a lot of the linebackers who are currently at Auburn,” he said.

Wooten said that he and Moultry have developed a friendship during the recruiting process. “I can tell we are going to be very close over the next couple of years,” he said. “He is very funny and I can’t wait to play football with him.”

Before that happens Wooten has one more season of high school football at North Cobb.

“We are going to have a very good team coming back,”?he said. “We have a lot of good players, a lot of starters back and I am excited about our future and the direction we are headed.

“I am working on my overall game to better myself as a player going into my senior year,” he noted. “I want to finish out strong."
