A Young Offensive Tackle Prospect Who Visited Auburn Picked Up a Football Scholarship Offer From the Titgers

Devontae Dobbs talks about his visit to Auburn and recruiting as he heads into the 2016 football season.

Belleville, Mich.--One of the young prospects who stood out at an Auburn football camp says he is looking for a college where he can fit in with the players and coaches, but Devontae Dobbs has plenty of time to make his choice.

Just 16 years old and a member of the class of 2019, the four-star offensive tackle from Belleville High spent a day on the Auburn campus where he earned a scholarship offer from the coaching staff.

““The visit went good,” Dobbs said. “It was fun and I learned some technique drills. I like the dorms and I like the campus.

“I had a chance to spend time with the coaches,” he added. “They said if they could they would take me now because they like my frame and my mobility.”

Dobbs, who noted that he currently is 6-4, 270 pounds, said Auburn was the 11th college to offer him a scholarship. After he visited the Tigers the prospect attended a camp at Ohio State where the Buckeyes also offered.

“I am looking for a place where I could see myself waking up every day ready to go to work with my brothers,” Dobbs said of what will be the major factor in his college choice.

Asked what the best part of his game is and what he is trying to improve for the 2016 season, the offensive tackle said, “The best part of my game is being coachable. I am working on my footwork and my hand discipline.”
