Talented Wide Receiver Prospect Has Extended Visit to Auburn

Class of 2018 football prospect Justyn Ross hung out on the Auburn campus on Saturday.

Phenix City, Ala.--Four-star wide receiver Justyn Ross spent a full day on the Auburn campus on Saturday and stayed busy in the process.

In the morning he watched the football Tigers go through their first full pads practice.

In the afternoon he toured campus and watched the AU basketball team defeat Missouri on Senior Day.

After that he stayed into the evening to hang out with the football coaching staff.

“It was just a normal day for me at Auburn because I am always visiting there,” the Central High standout told Inside the Auburn Tigers.

“I got to spend a lot of time with Coach Burns and Coach Lindsey,” he pointed out. Kodi Burns is the wide receivers coach and Chip Lindsey is the offensive coordinator, who also recruits prospects at Central High.

“It gave me a chance to get to know them a little better,” the prospect said. “Coach Lindsey and I didn’t talk about football. We talked about life, basically, since he is new at Auburn.”

Commenting on the football practice, Ross said, “I liked it. They have some receivers who I feel like can make plays. They have got a good quarterback (Jarrett Stidham), too.”

Justyn Ross has a combination of excellent size and athletic ability.

Ross, the No. 1 ranked in-state wide receiver prospect for the 2018 class, said he isn’t participating in any spring sports at Central this year. Instead, he is concentrating on getting ready for his senior season. The wide receiver noted that he currently checks in at six-foot-four, 198 pounds. Combine that with outstanding hands and the ability to beat one-on-one coverage and Central High has a major offensive threat when he is on the field.

The class of 2018 prospect said he doesn’t have any other recruiting visits planned in the near future.

Asked about his Red Devils will field another strong football team this fall, he said, “Oh, yes, for sure--as always.”
