“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."
Chandler Wooten is one of eight Auburn commitments for the 2017 class.
Wooten, who noted that he is 6-2, 228 pounds, said he is doing well in school with all his grades either A’s or B’s. “I pride myself on my education,”?he said. “I am going to be an early enrollee so I will graduate from high school in December.”
Wooten, who is helping the Tigers recruit other members of the 2017 signee class, was asked if his commitment to Auburn is a strong one and said, “Absolutely, and I don’t see that changing.”
