No Looking Back for Auburn Football Commitment Austin Troxell

A class of 2017 football prospect explains why he feels good about his decision to play for the Auburn Tigers.

Madison, Ala.--After making a decision early this summer to commit to play football for the Auburn Tigers, there has been no looking back for Austin Troxell.

The four-star offensive tackle from Madison Academy said he is done with recruiting, noting he won’t be taking any official or unofficial visits to other colleges.

“I will be back in Auburn for the Clemson game,”?he said of Auburn’s season opener on Sept. 3. “I will take my official visit in December or January.”

The six-foot-seven, 325-pounder noted he is focused on preparations for his senior season. 

“It is going pretty good,” he said. “The team is looking good, my knee is feeling good. I am ready to get back. I am excited to get the season started.”

On his most recent visit to Auburn he attended a barbecue last Saturday and spent time talking to the coaching staff and other prospects. “It was good, it was fun, it was laid-back,”?he said, noting that he hung out and played games with his recruiting coach, Tim Horton. “I was just chilling.”

Troxell added that he spent time getting to know Auburn’s most recent offensive line commitment, four-star guard Nick Brahms from Navarre, Fla. High. The two could be lining up side by side in college, although there is a possibility that Brahms will play center in college.

The Auburn commitment also did some recruiting for his future team. “I tried my best,” Troxell said.” I am still trying to get the hang of that. I talked to other recruits about why Auburn is a good fit for me.

“I am just trying to get everybody on board,” added Troxell, who chose Auburn over Alabama and other colleges. “I think we are going to get some more people on board pretty soon and we will hopefully have a Top 10 recruiting class.”
