Quarterback Still Hoping for Offer From Auburn

Class of 2017 quarterback prospect Kadarius Toney, a four-star recruit, visited Auburn on Tuesday.

Prichard, Ala.-- Kadarius Toney, rated as a four-star athlete in the 2017 class, worked out at an Auburn football camp on Tuesday, but did not pick up the scholarship offer he was hoping he might receive.

Asked how the trip to Auburn went, the Blount High School star said, “The visit went well.”

Asked how he thought he did throwing the football, Toney said, “I think I did pretty good.”

In May he announced that he had committed to the Florida Gators. Asked what his current status is, Toney said, “Yeah, I committed, but my options are still open.”

As a junior he put up impressive numbers, helping Blount post a 10-2 record. He passed for 3,604 yards and 37 touchdowns while adding 16 rushing touchdowns and 896 ground yards.

Commenting on what he talked about with Auburn’s coaches, Toney said, “Just some ways I can be better at throwing, both accurately and consistently.”

The 6-0, 185-pound athlete has a variety of scholarship offers. He noted that he hopes Auburn will offer, too. “It would mean something,” he said. “It was the first school I was thinking about in picking a college.”

The quarterback will soon be taking the field for his senior year and said he likes the 2016 version of the Blount team. “We are coming back better than before. We are more disciplined than we were last year. Key players are still there.”

Commenting on his goals for the fall, the quarterback said, “Win state and be better than I was last year.”
