A three-star offensive line prospect from Pima (Ariz.) College and originally from Mililani, Haw., 6-4, 290 Jordan Agasiva took an official visit to check out the Auburn Tigers this weekend. Getting the chance to see the South for the first time and experience what SEC football is all about, the road-grader offensive lineman said he left with the Tigers on top.
“I really love it there,” Agasiva said. “I really like how they present themselves and what they do. It’s all family there. I really loved the trip.
“I like the atmosphere,” he added. “I like everybody there, they’re all friendly. The players made it good. They treated me like family and showed me love last night after the win. It’s really like a family and that’s what I love about there.”
Hosted on his official visit by redshirt freshman quarterback Tyler Queen, Agasiva said one of the things that stood out to him on his trip was the energy surrounding the game for the entire weekend.
“It was crazy,” he said of Auburn. “I think it was the craziest game I have been to so far. I have never been to the SEC or been down South ever. It’s really crazy. I love the atmosphere down here.”
Playing right tackle for Pima College, Agasiva said right now Auburn sees him as more of a right guard on the next level. With Braden Smith currently holding down that spot for the Tigers that might seem like a bad move, but the offensive lineman said there might just be an opening for him next season in an Auburn offense that he feels like is a good fit for what he does best.
“They said he might go to tackle and they want me at guard,” Agasiva said. “It would be the best combination.”
Spending a great deal of time with Coach Gus Malzahn and offensive line Coach Herb Hand, Agasiva said it was easy to tell that both would be great to play for if he chooses to become a Tiger.
“Coach Malzahn is a really good guy and Coach Hand,” Agasiva noted. “They are really good coaches and I love them as people. They showed me love.”
Planning to make his decision in December following his official visits, Agasiva said this weekend he plans to visit TCU and is also looking to visit Oregon State and Utah. A December graduate, he will enroll in January.
